I had a very busy day today with 2 photo sessions. It never feels like work though! It always feels like I’m just going for a walk with friends.

I started off my day with Norman and Pele, two beautiful elkhounds. My husband took one look at the pictures and started grilling me about temperment, size, etc. I assured him they were wonderful dogs, but that they had a lot of hair! icon wink {Teaser} – Norman, Pele and Pearl

Then this afternoon I met with Pearl. She was recently adopted from the Prairie Dog Canine Rescue. She has come to daycare a few times and has been a fairly quiet, reserved girl. It turns out she has been holding out on us. She is really a fun loving party girl!

Friday Faces

Here are two “new” faces for you all! Both of these girls started out a little shy but have gotten better and better with each visit.

Pearl is a Shepherd cross who is a very sweet and gentle player.

and Zaya is a Wheaten Terrier who is the life of the party when she gets going!

The big dog room on the 27th…

keep in mind this was filmed in the afternoon so the dogs are quite a bit calmer than they are in the morning!

I had a chilly photo session last Saturday with Taz and Nikko but it was still a lot of fun. They are both so full of life. Some people worry their dogs will be too wild for a photo session, but let me assure you… there is no such thing!

Even wild and crazy dogs like these two will eventually stop moving… at least briefly!

I love it when a dog runs with their tongue hanging to the side – it is the sign of a good time!

Getting a “traditional” family portrait with dogs can sometimes be a bit of a challenge. icon wink Taz and Nikko

Today was Maggie’s first day.
She pretty much had all of us wrapped around her little paw.

I met Stephanie, her brother, Taz and Nikko at the dog park yesterday for a cold (and quick) photo session. Taz and Nikko were fine – they were running around in the snow as if it was summer, it was the rest of us that were freezing.

 Big Enough for Two.

Maggie and Russell both really wanted the frisbee.
Thankfully it’s big enough for two.

the dictionary defines want as “to wish, need, crave, demand, or desire”

in this case Mac is hoping for the frisbee.
