Grace and and her Great Family! (Winnipeg Family Photographers)

Leave a comment

I love dogs and Grace, the 1-year-old Golden Retriever, featured here,  is as sweet as they come. Grace will be trained to be a Seeing Eye dog and will go to a blind person once she finishes her training, but the family that have raised for a year will miss her a lot and so they wanted some pictures of her before she went.

Needless to say, this family touched my heart. It must be incredibly difficult to give up a dog, but what a wonderful thing to do for someone else!

This is Grace:

This is Grace with her human brother.

These are Grace’s siblings!

Three Wonderful Dogs! (Winnipeg Pet Photographers)

I’ve been away from the computer for a few days as I’m painting the upstairs of my house. It’s taken me a while to get going on this project, but now that it is underway, I am really enjoying it and love the clean look of new paint. I’ve finished the kitchen and living room. The landing is next, followed by the bathroom. My bedroom only needs touch ups. It’s a great way to spend cold winter days but I need to get back to editing, so here I am!

Last Sunday I met and photographed this family of dogs. The temperature wasn’t too bad and even though it was very windy, we were fine in Bunn’s Creek Park. I always love meeting fellow dog lovers and the owner of these 3 beasts is a fantastic dog mom.

Here are 3 wonderful dogs:

We are Wonderful Beasts!

Don’t you love my face?

 

 

Two Adorable Very Fast Dogs! (Winnipeg Pet Photographers)

I met these 2 cute dogs last night and was very impressed with how cute they were and how fast they could move.

I love the shot of the owners with their dogs in this first image. It’s a pose I often use with families and it worked so well with these 2 dogs. Please note their bandannas from Leo and Co Pet Shop!

 

 

Fun Family Session! (Winnipeg Family Photographers)

This family of 6 was one of the funnest families that I’ve ever photographed.

This first picture is of their 2 dogs, Maggie and Brandi. Aren’t they adorable.

I love this one of the family with everyone smiling; including the dogs!

 

I told them to have some fun with it at the end of the session and I got this amazing image.

All in all, it was a fantastic session.
Thank you Tanner for buying your parents the gift certificate!

Life With Dogs! (Winnipeg Pet Photography)

Leave a comment

John, my fiance and I live with 3 dogs; all are rescue dogs with their own distinct personalities. At times life is a bit chaotic, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.

At times we are trapped in a small space as we are here in the car. Could they be any closer?

This is our pack taken on the top of my stairs, the perfect light was shining on their faces. It’s the best time to get a picture of the 3 of them.

ZARA

Zara is my dog and she the most playful. Zara loves find skeletons of dead fish, and bones of animals, as well as many, many toys scattered around my house. She loves Victoria Beach because she can run free and look for treasures. She’s a very active dog and loves her food. In fact, she growls at the other 2 dogs when they are getting fed. One can understand that as she was rescued from a reserve where most of the 2 litters that she was a part of  starved and died. She knows that food is something that can disappear and she’s going to get it! Zara is also very loving and we think she’s brilliant.

FERGUS

This is Fergus, the most gentle of our 3 dogs.  People are sometimes a bit nervous when they first meet him because of  how big he is but he’s a pussy cat. Fergus likes to go for walks and enjoys a good meal, but his main pleasure seems to be helping with the dishes by licking them clean. The odd time Zara can get him to play with her but it’s not often. 

MADDIE

Maddie is our one-eyed dog. She had blastomycosis when she was a puppy and had to have an eye removed. 

Maddie loves to play with Zara and often spends hours cleaning Zara’s ears. Zara seems to enjoy it. The most fun these 2 have is in the lake in the summer. Maddie likes to fetch rocks that we throw into the lake. She can retrieve them from under the water even though she has limited vision.  Maddie is not an active dog but she does like going to walk; just not too far. These 2 are best buddies!

Zara is 3, almost 4, so she should have a lot of years left. Maddie and Fergus are about 10 so they might not have a lot of years left. Losing a dog if the worst part of being a pet owner and we dread that time.

Needless to say we are dog lovers. Neither one of us can imagine life without our dogs. Our dogs, that follow us around wherever we might be; that patiently and quietly sit beside us at the table waiting for scraps to fall and that give us constant affection.

Next post will show some dogs that I photographed (besides my own!).

 

Gotta Love This Puppy! (Winnipeg Pet Photographers)

Last week we welcomed a new member to our family; an adorable puppy named Roo.

Roo looks like a miniature Zara but as far as we know, they are not related.

Here is the most adorable puppy I’ve seen in a long time with his new Mama!
