Dog Days part 4 (Winnipeg Dog Photographers)

These 3 dogs came for pictures last night and kept us hopping, but it was a ton of fun. I loved every minute of it.

I had photographed this first dog a few years ago so it was great to see him again. This is Murphy, who is 9 years old and is a German Shepherd, Husky cross. Murphy was the best behaved dog last night and was easy to manage.

This is gracious, elegant Murphy.

Rocksy is a Boxer, Bulldog cross and is 11 years old. Rocksy had a few issues being with the other dogs and reminded me of my Zara with all of his snarling.  It took us a while to get him to sit like this but he actually sat and left the hat on  long enough for me to get this great picture of him.

Doesn’t he look gentlemanly with this hat on?

I love retrievers and this 4 year old was as handsome as they come. Buster has a beautiful coat and lovely eyes. He was very excited to be in the studio and it took a while for him to settle down but look at him! He’s gorgeous.

I’m having a blast editing these dog pictures and I have 3 more dogs coming today! Here are 3 more of the dog portraits that I’ve done.

My first dog today is a mix of St. Bernard and Italian Greyhound named Opoho.  Opoho (usually called Opi) is 8 and came to his forever home from The Humane Society.  Opi was nervous in the studio and kept going to the door to show that he had had enough. But treats won him over and we got some cute pictures of him. I love his gorgeous coat!

Presenting Opi!

This is our dog, Fergus. Fergus is 13 years old and is mostly Lab. Fergus was not happy to be in the studio and was anxious to leave but I got this one image that I like.

He is our biggest dog but he is the most gentle of our 3 beasts. He is laid back and doesn’t get too excited about anything. He lets Zara, my dog, do whatever she wants but when he’s had enough he only has to look at her and Zara backs off. Zara has a healthy respect for Fergus.

Isn’t he adorable!

I took Zara down to the studio again and this time I took her dog bed and it went a lot better. She actually lay down and relaxed, although she was none too pleased. The interesting thing was that the other 2 dogs howled while she was down there. I’m sure they thought that Zara was in grave danger.

Zara is mostly Corgi but she has a lab head and body. Zara is a very nervous dog and will sometimes act aggressively when she is afraid. Zara loves walks and toys. She will sometimes carry 2 toys around and will always choose one to bring to bed with her at night.

This is Zara, my heart-dog and the best friend a girl could have.

Today I am featuring 3 more of the dogs that were my models for the book I want to do featuring dogs.  I am thrilled with how these images turned out and how much fun these dogs were.

This is Sadie, a dalmation/whippet cross, who is 15.5 years old. Sadie is an active, busy dog who hasn’t slowed down very much. She has a lot of personality and is very expressive. Her eyes tell you everything. We got some amazing images of Sadie and her human person Kim, who have an incredible bond that shows in the pictures. Kim describes Sadie as her heart-dog and anyone watching these 2 can tell what an beautiful bond there is between them.

Sadie even obliged me by sitting on my dog couch! Isn’t she the sweetest?

This is Jerry, an 2 year old German Shepherd/Greyhound cross. Jerry was rescued from Spirit of Hope, the same place that I got my Zara from. He has the biggest pointy ears and a huge smile. Jerry loves walks, food and treats. He was bursting with energy when he first came in but cooperated beautifully for his portrait. Jerry is lucky to have 5 people in his family who love him and give him lots of attention.

Isn’t he handsome?

My third dog featured today is Roo, an Australian herding dog. Roo is just over a year old and is full of beans. I’ve known Roo since she was adopted and she has calmed down a lot since she was a puppy and is learning to listen and be a good girl. Roo is probably the most affectionate dog I’ve ever known and likes to sleep right beside you at night. There is never a dull moment with Roo around!

I love Roo’s big smile and how her ears go out sideways!
