Opportunity knocks at the strangest times. One of my client’s was picking up her dog and had her daughter along. I grabbed the camera, as they were walking out the door and snapped a few photos.. who knew if they would come out.
I saw the love this beautiful little girl had for her 13 year old dog and wanted desperately to capture, what I felt. I made these photographs in black and white because Rosie the old Bloodhound Mix was so white in her face it looked odd to me in color. I personally like the way the images came out. I hope you enjoy them too.
Thank you to Elisabeth and Rosie.

Today I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph a litter of Dalmatian puppies. I had a blast. There were puppies running and playing with one another. It brought back such fond memories of all the larger litters of puppies I had bred over the years. The smell of pine chips and puppy breath, mmmmmm only a true dog lover will totally understand what that means.
Thank you Susan for allowing me to shoot these beautiful, gentle puppies. Much continued success with all of them.
More photographs can be seen in the Canine Gallery

A Splash of Color can totally change the look of a rather ordinary photograph. I’ve chosen to highlight the color you would typically imagine. This can really be done with any photograph that has that special focal point. I will continue to explore this form of photographic editing.
Until next time…

Welcome July. The past week we have had outrageously high temperatures. There were many concerns about how hot it was with people, let alone all the animals. I know my concerns were with keeping all of our animals and the dogs vacationing with us at Hound Hollow Boarding Kennel cool.
Featured is a charming Blenheim and White Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, her name is Gwen. She’s a difficult one to photograph. Being a “spaniel” her head tends to lead her which makes her always look down. It was my challenge to get at least one good shot, where her nose was not buried in the ground. She is just a very grounded young dog. There are more photographs of Gwen in the Canine Gallery
Be well, until next time.
