Josie was one of our sweet Bernese Mountain Dog tribe that we have gathered in our home over the years. We were fortunate enough to adopt Josie from a rescue out in Ohio. Josie was such a sweet and shy girl. She loved to spend time with us. Unfortunately we did not get to spend as much time with her as we would have liked, as is too often the case. One… Read More

My family is full of dog lovers. Dogs have come into all of our lives in a variety of ways. Hiro was such an adorable dog who somehow ended up at our local shelter. My wife worked at the shelter at the time. We shared information about Hiro with people we knew. It was so nice when Hiro was able to be adopted by members of our family. That way a cool… Read More

One thing I love about dog shows is discovering new dog breeds. Having the opportunity to be introduced to new dog breeds and learn more about dogs is one of the best things about dog shows. I like to get the program for the dog show and looking at the Index of Breeds that lists all the different dog breeds that will be at the show and reading all the names to… Read More

I will photograph dogs at any opportunity. Show me a dog and I will take its picture. In 2009 we visited Mount Desert Island in Maine. We 3were there camping at Acadia National Park. All the natural beauties of the park and the island. But there is always time to photograph dogs. This pair of Golden Retrievers were out at the park in Bar Harbor with Their humans. I couldn’t resist taking… Read More

It is happily one of my favorite times of the year. It is Wine Country Circuit Dog Show week. I will be spending the next three days hanging out and photographing all the amazing dogs. I will try to photograph a variety of dogs as I normally do unless someone asks me to photograph their dog for them. If you see me there feel free to say hi.

Over the years we have had many fun experiences with dogs. We have had the opportunity to have foster dogs pass through our homes. It is always an interesting and often exciting time to have new dogs around. So much fun and energy in the group of dogs that the dog featured in this photograph came to our home with. The group of puppies got along so well. All the puppies even… Read More

The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon. Like many dog breeds, I have not seen much of the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon at dog shows. I love the look of these dogs. Although I wouldn’t even know how to describe it. Medium long wiry fur coat. The fur is colored brown and gray. The dogs head is mostly brown. This description really does not do the dog justice. I think this is just a breed of… Read More

The Windsprite (Whippet – Long Haired). The Windsprite is a relatively newer breed. One I have been fortunate enough to spend some time with. I was invited to photograph a breed specialty event. I was able to watch these graceful animals compete in agility. They showed in conformation. And then they ran in lure coursing. It was a really fun day. I love the combination of coat length and color on this… Read More

The Whippet. I like this photo of a Whippet and their handler as they begin to move around the dog show ring during conformation. Whippet’s are one of three dog breeds often at dog shows that have a similar look to them. The Whippet, The Greyhound and the Italian Greyhound. The most noticeable difference between the three breeds is their size. The Whippet is the medium size between the larger Greyhound and… Read More

The Welsh Springer Spaniel. Trotting around the show ring at a state park in New York. This Welsh Springer Spaniel look so happy. So much energy expressed in this dog’s face. I love the trail of spots up the dogs snout and onto its forehead as the brown migrates from its nose up the white stripe to the top of its head. There the white stripe parts two beautiful rusty brown patches… Read More
