Bio not provided
We fostered Willow for nearly 4 months before we decided to adopt her. She was extremely fearful of people and places but LOVED dogs, and that was the key to reach her. We brought her home to live with us and our Lab Corbin, hand fed her and little by little she began to trust us. I didn't really feel her as "mine" for a while though, and I didn't really feel we were in danger of failing as foster parents for a while either. We were determined to find her the right home. Then one night, after 8 or so weeks with us, she had started to get happy, wiggly and excited whenever she saw me, and actively looking for affection and touch. It had aken me weeks to earn those things... anyways, I was laying in bed, and she slowly crept up beside/nearly on top of me (she was around 6 months old then, big shepherd puppy), licked my face and hands and proceeded to fall asleep on my chest, allowing me to rub her and put my arms around her. That was a HUGE step for her and a giant honor for me. That was it. We belonged to each other. Today, my little "Maverick" is a special dog, more like a wolf or a cat, where a bond starts on their terms, and when it happens, it can be an unbelievably strong thing. I love her beyond words.

I am really curious as to what you think of this blog post I came across and whether you would advise photographers (and other creatives) not to upload or pin their own artwork. http://www.virtualmoxie.com/2012/02/why-pinterest-is-no-longer-of-great-interest.html
Honestly, I am on the fence and I don't know where the line is, I was terrified of posting any images to Facebook because of their copyright terms, and now I am wondering whether I should remove my own work from my Pinterest boards, we currently have pin boards dedicated to our work. Granted, I always credit what I find and pin, and all my artwork is watermarked, but I wonder if that is enough to justify having it on there considering the terms and conditions and other fine print I'm ashamed to say I neglected to read before I created my boards. I love Pinterest, I still want the exposure, and I still want to share our work and see/pin amazing work from other photographers, but as many creatives are, I am terrified of it getting stolen and used/modified without permission. What do you think? I would love to hear your thoughts as well as everyone else's.

Great post Zach! I am wondering if there is a how-to somewhere on how to add a Pinterest tab to your Facebook page, since my personal profile is somewhat more private, it would be more beneficial to have it on the page correct? I especially liked the part about adding copy to images, I did it with this one a little while back and people seemed to love it, plus it showcases our work: http://pinterest.com/pin/222646775297832765/
