I’ve had the opportunity lately to take some pictures for some pups who were from various rescues…all staying with my friend Amy for a little bit of training. Some just needed to be tweaked, a few needed more extensive evaluations…either way its fun to see how much they progress in a really short time in someone’s home. I think its cool that she’ll work with these rescues, so that the dogs CAN be re-homed a little more easily. Plus…Amy helped us find our first rescued dog, Boo. So, I guess I hold her in a little bit of a special place because of that, too!
Valentine’s Valley girl is still up for adoption. If you want more information about her, hopefully either Amy will comment, or you can email me and I’ll forward it to her. We’d love to find her a home! The hot dog and the floor mop, two of my favorites, were fosters here at our house for 2 weeks each and have both found their forever homes!
Its a really fun challenge to me to be able to take portrait-style pictures of dogs. They’ve got so much personality, and you’ve got to be cautious, because not all of them are ok with the camera and some of them are flat out afraid of the flash (maybe it reminds them of lightening?). Either way…its fun to be able to capture their personalities. That being said, I’m crying “uncle” with Sasha, our current foster/adoptee and asking for help from one of my photog friends. She doesn’t want me to move away from her, LOL!
Hope you enjoy the pics!
Deter – incredibly inquisitive and entirely too smart for his own good. He also had a little bit of a Napoleon syndrome…. 😉
Oslo – sweet, young little guy who just loved everyone. He was totally mellow, too. I’d absolutely have kept him but he just wasn’t “quite” right for our family. Don’t know if that makes sense, but hey. :-S He’s SO loved in his new home.
Deter and Oslo playing together, and in Amy’s home with the 30 lb cat. 🙂
And last (but surely not least!!) Valley – she’s the strangest combination, but kind of cool!
Isn’t her ear the coolest?
