In her relatively long and eventful life, our dog Jenny had the pleasure of being photographed by Elliott Erwitt and The Sartorialist. She had an outsize personality and an even bigger heart and will be deeply missed by just about everyone who knew her.
For my 50th birthday, my wife surprised me by commissioning Eliott Erwitt to photograph Jenny with our kids and while I wasn't there for the secret sitting, apparently Erwitt startled my children even more than Jenny by getting down on his hands and knees and barking at Jenny before each picture!
Several years later, I persuaded Scott Schuman to photograph our brood for a Christmas card and the result, with Jenny focused on something out of frame, captured her perfectly.
One of my own favorite pictures of Jenny was taken in Bellport where Jenny liked nothing more than to go exploring and get as dirty as possible!
As one of my son's friends was kind enough to text me after hearing the news of Jenny's passing "She was the best dog ever!"
