Hi, I’m Kira DeDecker (“key-ra dee-decker”) and I’m a pet photographer serving Arizona’s greater Phoenix Metro area. Welcome to my blog! This is where I share not only my most recent work but also my life with you. Client sneak peeks, Facebook recaps, announcements, updates, awesome new offerings and the occasional (okay, frequent) story about my crazy but amazing life with my three dogs – Sox, Bixby and Waffles.
Pull up a chair and make sure it’s nice and comfy because you will want to stay awhile. It’s great to have you here!
A very overdue recap from my Facebook page! Enjoy!
Black, white and re(a)d all over.
My world is you.
Sox has always been Tim’s dog. Since day one when we first meet him in a crowded adoption event, he clung to my husband’s side. But one of the most amazing things about Sox is when you need him, he is there for you.
The pouch is flooded? We only discovered a leak because he went out into the puddle and barked at us (and he refuses to get wet – when the ground is even damp he won’t go outside).
Waffles got stuck? Sox will let us know.
He has always been our watch dog,
I have the cold, it’s 2AM, I wake up, hot and in pain. Sox is quietly snuggled up against my stomach, apparently at some point during the night he left his bed to come and join on the couch. I get up and go the kitchen to get some meds. I grab a steak knife to cut the plastic but in my woozy state, I jab it to hard and it goes through the package and cuts my nail and finger, deep. I try to clean up the wound but my breath gets shallow and I can’t stand, I fall to the floor. Sox rushes to my face and tries to lick my tears. I try to cry out for Tim, but my throat is sore and swollen but Sox hears them and bolts to the master bedroom to go get him. He keeps going back and forth and barks until Tim is at my side.
Typically, I sleep in while Tim leaves for work. He gives me a kiss good-bye and Sox gets up and barks him farewell. The day after we lose Peetie, I wake up and it hits me. She is gone. And I start to bawl in bed. Sox comes to my side and starts licking my tears. I go to cover my face with my sheets and he not so gently slaps it down. For a whole year, until I was done grieving. Sox sat at the end of the bed. Waiting, watching and comforting me.
Happy Adopt-a-versary Sox.
Supreme Being of Goodness and Light.
Or Premes for short
(Y’all know him as Waffles.)
Meet Piccolo and Sophie!
Oh Lordy, these were the fluffiest poms I have ever meet (not even my three hold a candle to these two).
Have a super fluffy fun weekend y’all!
A little love from my loves!
Get in Touch!
