Another dog I had the pleasure of photographing for Lowcountry Dog Magazine last month was Kiya, a 9 year old German Shepherd.  She was the perfect model and was so fun to work with.  She uses a cart to get around due to a condition called Degenerative Myelopathy, which is a disease affecting the spinal cord, causing progressive paralysis of the limbs.  Kiya navigates her cart with ease, keeping up with her three canine housemates and living a full life despite not being able to use her hind legs at all.  It’s always so amazing to see how smart and resilient dogs really are.  Kiya is most certainly a shining example of that.  So please enjoy these images of Kiya in Hampton Park!  Oh and you just might recognize this cover girl – she was the one chosen for the cover of Lowcountry Dog Magazine!
