Director Statement

When I first met Sunshine back in 2013, having only two feet, she dragged herself across the concrete to say hello in the way only Sunshine could. At that moment I knew I wanted to see her on all fours.

Then, three years later, I had the opportunity to document her journey and help her every step of the way as this dream became realized.

The result is a four-legged dog who is even happier than before and an uplifting story I'm proud to have been a small part of.
