We responded by visiting the animal shelter with him the next day. A quiet little white and pink pit bull terrier gently crawled into Taylor’s lap, curled up and laid there, as if it was his very own lap-bed. The little guy manipulated us into adopting him! We named him Piglet, after a lot of negotiation with my husband about giving him such a name.
Piglet helped get us started with our home improvement projects for the year. He started by going spider-hunting and tearing up the white linoleum that my husband hated because he always felt compelled to clean it. I deliberately chose that floor because I like walking around barefoot and wanted to know when it was too dirty to do so. Piglet fixed that for us and we now have beautiful tile. It is NOT white and my husband Greg still feels the constant compulsion to make sure it gets cleaned.
We also had roofers, solar installers, electricians, landscapers, and installed a new stove and exhaust fan in the kitchen. The exhaust fan was installed after more husband-and-wife negotiations about putting in a microwave vs. exhaust. The wifey won again. CLICK HERE for a photo of this accomplishment.
Photographer Pam Esau is a long time Hayward resident and retired from Cal State East Bay after spending many years in Accounting. After retiring she started working with shelter dogs and has been a volunteer at Hayward Animal Services for eight years. Photography has been her passion since she was thirteen and decided to encompass her love of animals and photography together.
She has found, when allowed, that shelter dogs tell a story with their eyes if we just pay attention. When some of them have to go to the big dog park in the sky, she photographs them to solidify their existence. They mattered and at least at the shelter were loved unconditionally.
She thanks you all for your willingness to support these amazing dogs.
Pam Esau’s photography is being displayed through December 2013 in honor of SantaCon Hayward 2013, a fundraiser in support of the Hayward Animal Shelter.
