Not as recent as some, but very late spring of this year.
Got her as a pup from a rescue. At that time (early 2002), we didn't all have smartphones and her face was fully black. You needed a flash to shoot her in anything other than bright sunlight, so she quickly decided that if I had something in front of my face she should look away. Can't blame her.
End result is that I have 16 years of her never facing the camera!
And then we had the freak storm this late March or early April. I was trying to get a shot from the side with her in it but not the focus, and she unexpectedly nose-booped the phone.Thank god I pressed the shutter. It may be my favorite picture that I've ever taken, let alone of the love of my life.
I had to put her down in early June of this year. But at this moment, she was happy, healthy, and surprised me doing one of her favorite things--playing in the snow.
