Steve Plocher and his wife capture family pet Freddie’s loving persona.
“Freddie likes everyone. My wife has Freddie certified as a therapy dog, and she and Freddie are a therapy team,” says Steve Plocher, amateur photographer. “They have visited students and staff at the University of Minnesota and seniors at a senior living facility, although visits were limited in the past two years due to COVID-19. My goal for the photo was to capture the soulfulness and love in Freddie’s eyes.”
