Small boy. BIG energy!!

Friendly Giants Dog Rescue

I've been searching for a way to do something positive with all the dog photos I take. I approached Friendly Giants Dog Rescue to see if they needed dog photos. Lucky me, they had an event going on this weekend and I was able to make it just in time to take a few photos. The dogs available for adoption are so incredibly sweet. I am not kidding! Shilo, Bree, and Zeus had me considering taking him home. (the closeup of the dog in the grass, he's a kisser!)  I hope these dogs find loving homes soon otherwise I'm going to have to buy a farm and take them all home with me.

Feeling lucky.

People come and go in our lives and even tho' it's been a few years, I feel really lucky to have been asked to photograph this beautiful family. I kinda, sort of met little "A" when I photographed Mom while still pregnant with her.  It's an honour to be given the opportunity to capture a few happy moments on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon.

Best word to describe the session today. Cute!

Words can't describe how fun this was.

This session was an adventure from the get-go. Let's see. I have my map / directions from Google Maps. Yes, I know. I'm probably the only person who does not own an iPhone. It's true. And because I am so terrible at finding places, I was smart enough to leave early....just in case. Good thing because I ended up on a dead-end street, in a residential neighbourhood. No farm to be seen. When I have moments like this I call my GPS service aka 'the boyfriend'. Ok, he's not answering. He is at work afterall. But really. I'm lost. I call the client. Then there is that crazy beeping sound that indicates time is running out on your phone. Oh crap. I have been paying through the nose for cellphone charges only because my curent plan is a 'pay as you go' plan. Great when we had a landline, not so great when it's your only phone. I managed to get myself turned around and after a few zig zags along the road, I managed to find the small white sign attached to a fence, hidden under big trees, that I had finally found the farm. Yay. After all that, I was still on time and we had a blast. Now the cute cow trying to mount me.....I don't know what to say about that.

She looks so sad.

I heard sad news from a friend. She said good-bye to her furry friend. I can't imagine how hard that was for her. I look at Tika and I see how much she is slowing down. She's 13. Stairs are a little bit of a challenge. No more jumping on the bed. She's all about sniffing the grass and walking at her own leisurely pace. She's all about comfort, relaxation, and snuggling.  I can't tell you how much I love this dog.

Good news!

It was nice to see Billy and her Mom at the park recently. Even better was the exciting news she shared. Very excited for her.
