More fun at Fleet People’s Park this week! Thanks to everyone I met for letting me play with your wonderful dogs. Everyone was so gorgeous, especially all the puppies- my lucky day!
Cotton August 26, 2007
I had so much fun with Cotton! She’s an English Golden with a gorgeous coat, a wonderfully sweet-as-home-made-pie demeanor and a love for the pool. She amused me with her love of flying
and her laid-back approach to swimming. She likes to recline on the step and soak. And she’ll retrieve a pool toy but there’s no rush- it’s not like it’s going anywhere.
After several hours of land-water-land-water rotations, we dried off…and wore the towel around for a bit.
I put my camera away four times, preparing to leave and each time she topped her cuteness so I was forced- forced, I tell you- to take it out again and again to continue photographing. Thanks for the awesome morning, Cotton!
Chelsea – 2008 SPCA Calendar November July 25, 2007
I had a bright and early shoot (as frequent during this time of year, to avoid afternoon gloom and doom) with Chelsea the other day and it couldn’t have been more peaceful. She is a very sweet, very thoughtful, very soulful golden with a white face that marks the wonderful years she’s graced her family’s life. She enjoys swimming but we didn’t partake in that activity that day. Instead, Chelsea let me watch her think her thoughts and sometimes played with a stuffed heart that I brought along- like she needed any more heart.
Okay, I have to poke fun here…somehow I also happened to catch her doing a REALLY ACCURATE IMITATION OF A SLOTH (see above) ha ha- she should go on Letterman.
Anyhoo, she recently had a bit of surgery so we kept it very low energy and the photographs make me feel relaxed when I look at them.
Thank you kindly, Chelsea. 🙂
Sasha – 2008 SPCA Calendar April June 16, 2007
Holy sweetest thing ever. This Golden was so gentle and so kind and so tolerant of how many times I had her do the tricks she knows. As I’ve mentioned before, it’s a 50/50 chance as to whether my dogs will decide to perform the 2 commands they know so I find it interesting when I get to hang out with good listeners. Watching other dogs do tricks with such speed and willingness is a novelty I can never pass up.
Sasha was a little camera shy when the giant camera got up close but you’d never know by the pictures (she’s easily comforted by treats :-)) as I was able to get a picture of the cutest set of teeth I’ve ever seen.
She was truly amazing and has a giant heart. I had a blast with her.
