Project Pearl: One Blue Eye, One Brown Eye
I spent the morning yesterday photographing with Project Pearl to help some of the adoptable animals at Forsyth County Animal Control find their forever homes. I photographed 13 dogs and 3 cats and I am so excited that three of the dogs have already been adopted. Unfortunately one little pup, Clara, had to move into foster care while she recovers from some health issues, but I know she's in great hands and I wish her a speedy recovery.
Now the really interesting thing about the day was that three of the dogs I photographed had one blue eye and one brown eye. Ok, so two of them were brothers, but still it seemed pretty remarkable. I have seen a lot of dogs and I have photographed a lot of dogs. When I got to thinking about it, I would guess I've maybe seen three dogs with this particular eye color combination three times in the last 5 years. I don't really know how common this genetic trait is, but honestly, how often have you seen it?
Of course, the heart of the matter is that there are some wonderfully cute and friendly animals waiting to be adopted at our local animal shelter. If you are considering opening your home to a new furry friend, please remember to check there first. The easiest way to do that is to like Project Pearl's Facebook page and watch the "Available for Adoption" photo album.
Enjoy the the slideshow or visit the session album on Project Pearl's facebook page.
