From the Photographer | I loved photographing Maranda & Reba at one of my favorite locations right outside of Nashville TN - Harlinsdale Farm in Franklin! The fall colors and late afternoon sunlight were just perfect and Reba and Maranda was amazing. Reba's copper color beautifully matched the golden sunlight. And I love her little yoda ears! from maranda"I adopted Reba 5.5 years ago (2011) after moving to Nashville for work in 2009. At the time I had another red headed mutt rescue named Riley (who I gave the middle name of Reba when I moved to TN). When I was open to adopting again, I had always wanted another redhead mutt in the family. I went to Petsmart on a Saturday in February 2011 to stock up on food and treats for Riley (not planning to take home another dog), and a no-kill shelter, K9 Sanctuary, from western TN was there with a the sweetest little ginger pup. Once I started talking with the owner of the shelter, I quickly learned that this little pup (then named Ruby and previously Scarlet) was no pup at all - she had been rescued pregnant from a kill shelter in Georgia by the K9 Sanctuary and had a litter of her own pups only 4 months earlier and was probably around 1 year old or so - who really knows when it comes to rescue mutts?! I instantly fell in love with her when she exhibited much of the same demeanor and actions as Riley did when she was adopted - crawling in my lap, snuggling, letting me hold her like a baby and being perfectly content sleeping in a crate that was much much too small for her. I paid the adoption fee, named her Reba (yes in honor of Reba McEntire, another TN redhead), took her home and the rest is history! She's seriously the most loving and gentle dog I have ever been around and we swear she is part human as she loves to be picked up and carried on my hip like you would with a toddler. She's the best part of our little family and we love to spoil her (and of course, take TONS of photos of her too)!
