I always have the best intentions to keep this little blog up to date, but somehow I lost a week. How does that happen!? In any case, I have had some super fun sessions that will be shared here very soon (I promise!), but in the meantime, I’ve been keeping a few (very patient) Lab friends of mine waiting…
First up is Puppy, the honorary lab of the bunch. She’s actually a Flat-Coated Retriever, but don’t tell her that! Aside from being one gorgeous girl, Puppy is also an agility superstar. She’s earned 10 (yes, 10) MACHs. And for my non-agility friends, that’s 10 AKC agility championship titles…quite an accomplishment, to say the least! I just love-love this girl.
Pukui Lekos is a very handsome boy who was rescued around the same time as Poki (see previous post) following Hurricane Charlie. He thinks that photo shoots are rather boring…I didn’t take it personally. : )
And then there’s Keiki Lekos. Keiki is also a well known Florida agility dog. She doesn’t have any MACHs (yet!), but she is one of the fastest and most *entertaining* dogs to watch on course. Just check out those muscles!! And those ears! She reminds me of a cartoon character…all she needs is a superdog cape!
Big thanks to my lab friends (and Puppy!) for a wonderful session!

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing a big ‘ol (extended) family of Labs. Labs = fun. Labs + purple door = SO MUCH FUN!
First up is Kai Lekos, a very handsome guy! Around here he’s known as MACH4 Kai (that’s 4 time Master Agility Champion to my non-agility friends). He’s a sweetie…love that lab drool. : )
Next up is Poki, and if I’m remembering correctly, she was found and rescued after Hurricane Charlie. She’s a bit of a fearful girl, but she photographs *brilliantly*. There’s just something about her…I’ve worked with many, many dogs over the years, but very few have eyes that seem to tell a story quite like hers do. Beautiful.
And last, but most certainly not least, is Paka Lolo! I love this girl – she’s also an agility champion and I remember meeting her a few years ago at a trial when she was obsessively trying to stick her nose in my armpits! Apparently she likes deodorant. : )
That’s it for part 1 of the lab tales – check back soon for part 2!

My new friend Eva is looking for her forever home! She is one of the sweetest little labs I’ve met and I know she’s going to be an awesome companion to some very lucky person. I could say all kinds of nice things about her, but I’ll let her do the talking (translated by her foster mom, of course)…
“Hi, I’m Eva, a three-year old Labrador Retriever with a BIG heart but only half a tail. As I am a very happy lab, my half-tail is always wagging. I am very sweet and affectionate. I walk nicely on lead, have basic obedience training, and am becoming very good at agility. I love car rides and am very well behaved. I have perfect house manners and am very devoted to the people around me. While I love children and other dogs, I have been known to steal their toys and then I keep the toys for myself – so it is best that I not be around other dogs and children.”
“I am a small lab (45 lbs), have been spayed, up-to-date on my vaccinations, and am on monthly heartworm preventative.”
If you would like to find out more about me and/or make an appointment to meet me, please call my foster mom, Hera, at 941-922-5704 or send her an e-mail to OceanWolfAgility@comcast.net.
Thanks, Eva, for being such a sweetie…I hope you find your forever home very soon!

I’m starting to think that it must be black lab week! No complaints here though – I happen to love labs and Lucky was no exception. This pretty girl is almost three years old and is also a rescue. (Hooray for rescue pups!) She was a great little model and even though we had to cut our session short due to thunder in the area (she is *not* a fan), I still managed to get some nice shots, and had a great time with her and her family. Lucky is one very lucky girl!
I love-love her eyes, and that smile – what a happy girl!
Here Lucky is demonstrating her awesome “leave it” skills…very impressive!
And finally, Lucky showing off her pout – who could possibly resist that face?!
