One photo a day challenge: Day 260. We have been fortunate to have more opportunities to get out with our dog Colton lately. The weather has cooperated. Not so hot for this big fluff ball. Now there are a few community events he can attend to help him get used to being out in the public. He needs to get readjusted to public life, just like the rest of us. Today we… Read More
Dogs are amazing, right? I love dogs. You love dogs. Who doesn’t love dogs. I literally live a life of dogs. Dogs are a part of my daily life. I take vacations centered around my dogs. Taking trips to see other dogs. I get involved with organizations and not for profits that are involved with dogs. Dog Shows I will drive over an hour to see dogs thyat aren’t mine. Dogs that… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 234. When I photograph dogs at a dog show I am usually focusing on their movement. I like to capture moments in time as the dogs move across the show ring. I like seeing how they move. How they express themselves in the ring. Photographing their behavior during the show is always fun. Dogs are amazing creatures and capturing phots of them performing at their best… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 105. I thought I knew exactly what I was going to do for my photographs today. Our white husky, Mojo, had spent a lot of the day outside in the rain. I wanted to photograph his damp, muddy, and stinky self and talk about how much he loves the rain. But, Colton had other ideas. I called Mojo down to the bedroom so I could photograph… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 63. Something I always struggle with in my photography is the conflict between trying to photograph something new and returning to the familiar. Should I look for new things to photograph or stick with things that I love? There are so many things I love in life. I always want to photograph these familiar loves. I know what to expect and they bring me peace and… Read More
One photo a day challenge day 7. I headed down to my office tonight to perform my daily practice of one photo a day. Our dog Colton followed me to my office and laid on the floor and whined at me as I got things ready for some photography. Clearly a sign that he wanted to be my subject for today. I take a lot of photos of our dogs. This project… Read More
We recently did something that from the outside probably seemed rather rash to most people. We woke up one day with no immediate plans to get a puppy and the next day we had added a new puppy to our family. While it was sudden and unexpected it was not exactly unplanned. It was less rash from inside our little bubble than it may seem for anyone seeing our updates on social… Read More
If you told me that my adventure would begin with a 6+ hr drive each way to meet two dogs and possibly, just possibly adopt them if all went well, I would never have believed you. But that was what we did and that is how Josie came into our lives. It was one of the best days of my life. Josie fit right into our home, our heart, and our lives…. Read More
I have seen this breed of dogs a few times in the past but at this years Wine Country Circuit Dog Show at Sampson State Park I totally fell in love with these Finnish Lapphunds.
I love this series of photos of this American Staffordshire Terrier moving through the weave poles during agility competition at the Wine Country Circuit Dog Shows at Sampson State Park in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate, New York.
