Ruger's Sneak Peek!

Before our session, Ruger told me that his pawrents call him Pretty Boy and I can totally see why! He is so handsome! It was hard to pick just a few shots for his sneak peek...
I brought Ruger a red tennis ball to play with rather than my usual orange bad cuz and that turned out to be well received. He loves to run and play!




This is a "Throw that ball!" face...


"What?!? I see that ball... I'll even point it out for you! Come on... throw it!"


We wore him out... but just for a minute. I think he looks like a puppy in the shot on the left! And I love his dirty tongue on the right!


The community where Ruger lives has a dog park! If we hadn't just bought a house, I'd want to live there! We walked over to play there for a bit and Ruger, smartie pants that he is, can actually open the gate all by himself! How cool!

Here we see Ruger "spinning" for the ball... or maybe it was a rock. He likes rocks too and there are lots in the park! : )


The worst part about summer shoots, especially with active dogs, is that it is sooooo hot! Thank goodness there was a way to attempt to cool Ruger off. He looks so funny getting all splashed!


Ruger's mom even let him jump in the pond for a minute. Although then he had to endure a bath later...


After the bath though, it was treat time! I wish my dogs were so patient...

See the goober treat? On Ruger's paw?!?!?

Apple would have bit my hand off for the peanut butter treat if I was waving it around in the air. Ruger makes some hilarious faces and waves his paw around and even rolls over... but waits until he is told it's okay!


And now I leave you with a couple close shots of this sweet boy's beautiful face!

Ruger is too fun! I love his "point" picture. You did a great job of capturing his personality. I can see his playfulness leaping off the page. :)

Ruger is gorgeous. I love the point! hee hee! The way you captured is "mature" ;-) hairs and his beautiful eyes in the last two are awesome.

Many years ago when an adored dog died, a great friend of mine, a bishop actually, said to me, "You must always remember that, as far as the Bible is concerned, God only threw the humans out of Paradise."
