Kai + Paka + Poki | Lab Friends

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!

Meet Eva | Adopt Me!

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!

Meet Angel

Angel is a 5 year old Lab/Golden mix – I think that makes her a Labragolden? In any case, she is a very sweet, very playful, and very pretty girl!

Angel is pretty much a frisbee nut  – *all* she wanted to do is play with the frisbee. So we played! I just love her expression in this image…so intense!

Frisbee Nut

Unfortunately Angel got pretty hot playing outside and started to look a little like a grizzly bear with the world’s largest tongue…

Oh my!

So we decided to move inside so she could cool off. Luckily for me, I had a beautiful red wall to work with!

And finally one more image of Angel’s kitty friend. Sorry kitty…I don’t remember your name, but please don’t jump on my head!

Thanks again to Angel and her family for a great session!

Mick Chicken?

Remember Mick, the extremely cute great dane/lab puppy I posted about a few weeks back? Well, he’s getting bigger every day – and apparently he’s decided that my camera is *not* to be trusted. I really can’t blame him…I have heard that big cameras are known to swallow up cute puppies!

With the help of some cookies, I think I almost have him convinced that being a doggie supermodel isn’t that bad. Almost. In the meantime, he’s earned the nickname “Mick Chicken”. Thankfully, even though he doesn’t love the camera, I think the camera still loves him – I just love his expressions!

More of Mick Chicken and his big sister Blue coming soon…

Mick

Yikes!

I see you
