Pets bring us so much joy. Studies have found that pets provide us with many mental and physical health benefits. Dogs in particular have the power to reduce anxiety, stress and depression, as well as ease loneliness and increase exercise. Dogs scamper their way into our hearts and become our friends for life.
Photographer and dog-owner Amanda Jones came up with the perfect way to honour her 16-year friendship with her Dachshund, Lily, who sadly passed away. Jones’ photography project, Dog Years: Faithful Friends Then & Now, features portraits of a range of breeds, showing how they age over the years.
The photos are heart-warming portraits that capture the spirit and life of each dog, and have been published in a book now available for purchase.
