Albert Valles was in a shoot in Sylmar with Anthony Rodriguez, the son of a couple of friends, when the session was interrupted by the boy's dog, Sara. "She was barking as if she wanted to get his attention or asking for permission to sit next to him," Valles said.
Later Valles realized that he shouldn't have been surprised, as "the dog likes her picture to be taken and when someone is being photographed, she likes to get in the middle or in the crowd."
