George and Mildred were away during most of the earthquakes, but they did escape from their house in Lyttelton during the June earthquake. George took himself directly to civil defence, while Mildred just lay in the middle of the road waiting for everyone to come home.Craig Bullock (Author) Craig Bullock has worked as a photographer for more than 10 years and found his rather unusual niche of pet photography very quickly because he's always loved animals. His pet photography business FURtography www.furtography.co.nz has gone from strength to strength and Craig has worked photographing pets for clients like Animates and Proud Paws and volunteered and fundraised for charities K9 Rescue and Rehoming, Dogwatch and Cats Protection League.
