Where a picture’s worth a thousand woofs!

I met Zoe at the Annual Paws in the Park fundraiser at Lake Eola in February and could tell right away that it was really not her thing. Dogs are so…I don’t know, below her. You see, of course, she’s a human that happens to look like a Weimeraner and the indignity of being strapped to a leash around hundreds of drooling heathens was just ridiculous. “What made you think I’d enjoy this and where can a girl get a cosmopolitan around here?” she seemed to say.


And so it was, we met again- just us girls- on a quiet morning at Lake Eola for her photo shoot. She really enjoys bird watching, and there was no mistaking that she couldn’t care less about any other dogs that strolled by. After all, she’s not a dog so that would make sense.

She has no interest in toys but she’ll do anything for a snack (we have that in common). She loves hanging close to her Mom, must have Starbucks every morning, and is a very sweet and highly sophisticated city girl.

What I really enjoyed was being able to spend a couple hours with her, where she allowed her “vulnerabilities” to show through displaying sweet, comical and almost dog-like qualities. 😉

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!

Spirit the Weimaraner April 23, 2007

All of us have those dogs that know simple commands. They’ve done them over and over and over and yet still they test us when it’s showtime. For mine, it’s “down”. Easiest thing ever, yet I somehow have to repeat it, like 7 times before they might actually look at the floor and think about it. This is why, when I met Spirit today, he completed me. I don’t make a point of using commands during a shoot but for some shots it’s helpful. Well, Spirit had a “down” like no other. He would drop immediately, despite his large breed size and gangly limbs. This is why I got carried away. As soon as I saw that reaction, I couldn’t get enough of the novelty and got whisked away to “down” town. I knew that I would probably never see this again -especially from mine- so I probably said “down” about 150 times in my excitement (sorry Melissa, it’s the little things.) “Erica, I told you he can ride a tricycle while twirling a hula hoop around his neck”. “Yeah, but he does that “down” thing so well, I think I’ll stick with that”. That’s pretty much how I felt so I thought I’d write some silly paragraph about it. Overall, Spirit was an absolute pleasure: A snugglebug, a lizard hunter and an incredibly endearing fellow with looks to boot!
