Meet Rumble

Rumble and Keegan look so much alike that I wondered if I would be able to tell them apart – turned out to be much too easy! All I had to do is find the eyes that look like a child’s on Christmas morning! Seriously, Rumble is so animated and his expressions make me smile. He just recently made his agility debut and I’m really looking forward to seeing him at trials – I have no doubt that he’ll be a star just like his big brother Keegan!

Happy Rumble

Two Border Collies + A Princess

I headed up to Tampa this morning for a session with a few of my favorite agility dogs. I’ll be sharing more images soon, but here’s a quick peek!

The princess first – here’s Suzi…

Rumble is not a real Border Collie; he’s a cartoon character that just happens to look like one.

And last but not least, here’s Keegan. That’s newly crowned V-NATCH Keegan, who is sporting a very serious look here.

Pet Extravaganza Portrait Preview

The 2009 Pet Extravaganza was a success! It was such a fun day and I’m so glad that I had the opportunity to meet so many nice people and their pups. A special thanks to The GulfCoast DOG Magazine for all of their hard work, and for bringing the Florida pet loving community together for a great event!

Here’s a little preview of some of the portraits I took at the event – more coming soon!

I just had to include another shot of Owen, because he reminds me of a cartoon character – so animated!

Waste’ – Good Dog!

Meet Waste’ Tsunka, Waste’ (pronounced wash-TAY) for short. Her name means “good dog” in Lakota (Sioux) and I’d have to say that she has most definitely lived up to her name!

I photographed Waste’ while I was up in Lafayette, Indiana visiting some of my good  friends from college (I’m a Purdue alum – go Boilers!). Waste’s mom was one of my instructors back in my equestrian days and she too has left the horse world for dog training. During my visit, Waste’ showed off some of her many (very impressive) tricks! I’m so glad I had the chance to meet this sweet girl and spend some time catching up with her mom – here are a few of my favorites from our session:
