I'm a lousy photographer. I admit it freely. (I'm equally lousy at being photographed but that is another story.) I keeo meaning to get some new pics of the dogs taken as I have been remiss in updating Karen and Courtney with pictures of Dublin and Willow respectively.
Having said all that, I still need to take pictures of them but the weather has been so lousy and I'd like to get some on a nice sunny day if possible. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
Puppy owners have no such issues. They send me tons and tons of photos which is something I absolutely love. Some of the photos are simply fantastic and I am deeply envious of the talent (and patience) the photographer must possess. I find myself wondering why my dogs never pose so beautifully for long enough for me to grab the camera, point and shoot.
Each year I take some of my favourites and put them into a calendar for family and friends. This year's cover girl is Penny. Penny has a wonderful family who helped me name our last litter (Becca x Dundee - the coffee litter - Beans, Mocha, Latte, Cappucino, Espresso, Java and Machiatto). They sent me the following picture from a fall walk and it is simply too good not to share.
Other favourites for this year include this one of Mojo retrieving two geese from the water - courtesy of Betty & Jay
This one of Bella on the beach. Bella is a foster dog, who lives with a great family in eastern Ontario and her best buddy, Puck
These two of Pixie, another eastern Ontario girl
