I always was a Lady Dog. If I am thinking at my long journey on design realm, probably I can say that I am a She Wolf kind of person, too :D.
In my life I had several dogs – all of them girls.
The story of the name “JAnovelty” started in 2009 when somehow I found myself with a dog that has chosen us as owner-master (not vice versa). By chance or not this dog was a local celebrity. At that time we didn’t know it but all bus drivers from the city I live in knew her. It seemed like everyone knew her but us! In short time we understood that our new blond lady-dog, had a secret life, she liked to attend Beer Festivals by bus, and local newspapers have written articles about her! She was a local VIP dog… when she choose us as masters.
Though, she was stray dog, it seemed that she had something nice from each breed. Sometimes I was surprising myself looking at her and thinking “ohh for sure she is a gigantic chihuahua” LOL… other times I said to myself that her mom was a beautiful cream Labrador, or… because of her expressive eyes when she was upset, from some reason, I thought that her father was a Pitbull. I could read and see all dogs’ breed in her behavior or appearance.
She was a happy and playful dog that knew to melt the heart of everyone she wants to. I must admit she was the best trained dog I’ve ever had (without me to have a minimum contribution on her education). She impressed me with her intelligence and witty mind. Because we got this street smart dog, with Oxford-like training we felt that she deserves more – and we made a personal blog for her.
This is how the first picture and stories started to appear.
We named her, JA but the story of her name is pretty long. Her tramp name was Lynda, initial we called her Iubiric (a diminutive for lover). But… in time… we progressively shortened her name until it was just simple JA.
JA was a model of living and my model in the photography of that time.
When she left us, I wanted to keep her memory alive so I adopted her name as mine. Lady JA still is my nick name I like to use sometimes and this is the root of this territory named “JAnovelty”.
