Sneak Peek with Angus!

Angus is a sweet, 8 year old Great Dane who I had the honor of meeting (and photographing) just before Christmas!

Isn't he striking?!

No, your eyes aren't deceiving you. Angus only has three legs. He just had to have one of them amputated this fall. But that doesn't stop him one bit! I know these two photos aren't perfect... however, I wanted to show how much fun Angus still has romping about!

Angus gets up close and personal!

Crazy tongue face!

Hi Angy! : )

Getting some scratches... Mmmm... scraaaatches... Who doesn't love a good scratchin'!?

Hanging out with Mom!


Headin' out of Alpine Groves after an exciting afternoon!

Thank you Angus for spending some time with me. You are in my thoughts!

Ziggy's Sneak Peek!

I had so much fun playing with and photographing Ziggy last weekend! He's a 6 month old black lab/great dane mix with such a happy face! Everyone who meets Ziggy instantly falls in love... including his mom who adopted him when he was just a wee thing!

Ziggy wasn't entirely sure about the camera at first... but then I tempted him out with some yummy treats!

Ziggy loves to play "eat the leaves"!

"Catch me if you can!"

I love this one... with the sun shining right on Ziggy! : )


And relaxing for just a minute!

I bet he slept well that evening! : )

Kaylob's Sneak Peek

Kaylob is a five year old puggle who loves the beach... but not the water! He just loves the squishy sand between his toes! I got to meet Kaylob and his mom for a photo session last weekend. Here they are!

Kaylob stole Santa's hat!! Wonder what he'll be getting in his stocking this year? ; )

Enjoying a walk!

More beach time!

Apparently, Kaylob likes the feel of sand on his nose too!

Kisses for mom... even if he has to do acrobatics!

Berkley's Sneak Peek!

I got to spend Saturday afternoon with Berkley and his pawrents this weekend! Berkley is a lively and fun 2 year old black lab whose mom and dad love him very much! He's also very handsome as you can see!

I think he was a little excited about treats! Or maybe it was a ball...

I think it was treats! : )

Posing for the camera!

Gettin' some love from mom!

The whole family!

We sat around in the grass, relaxing. It was a gorgeous day!

Another family photo!

Berkley likes football!

It was a fun day and I bet Berkley slept well later that night!

Run Flopsy, run!

Love his "snaggle tooth" on the right here...

Mopsy hangs out...

With their pawrents!

My favorite breed

is Rescued.

Working for the National Park Service, I see a lot of abandoned pets. Many of us here have pets that were found within the park. I have found homes for others. And yet others wind up in shelters or who knows what else considering that there is an abundance of wildlife in this area including rattlesnakes, hawks, foxes, etc.

Last night someone tied this little guy up to the entrance gate and left him.

LOOK at that face! He is a total sweetheart too! One of my coworkers took him in to the vet where he got a pill to take care of the plethora of fleas eating him up. And he is going to take him home with the hope that his girlfriend will let "Rosco" become their third dog (one of who came from here as well). Good thing... or I might have been tempted myself. He looks like baby Max! Max came from the park too...

Seriously, I wish people would love and take care of their pets. I really don't understand dumping. If you can't take care of your animal, then at the very least, take them to a shelter where they will be safe and have a chance of finding a home.
I know I'm preaching to the choir...

Titan's Sneak Peek!

Titan is a gorgeous (almost) 3 year old Doberman who I got to meet and photograph this weekend. I had never been to Alpine Groves Park in Switzerland but it definitely lived up to the wonderful things I had heard about it!

Introducing Titan!

What's that you say? He doesn't look like any Dobie you've ever seen? That's because he's an albino Doberman, which is very rare... but quite beautiful in my opinion!

Titan is such a good boy with his new little sister. She's only 3 months old and already has her own pony/dog!

Nose to nose!

Titan was amazing! He is like a squirrel, climbing up on trees and posing!

Look at that majestic stance! His dad said this was a magazine cover shot... I think so too! : )


And just so you don't think we spent the whole time posing... we did some playing and treat eating too!

I have to close with my favorite kind of shot... the nose! Titan has that fabulous pink nose and he wants to show me!

My husband always says that someday he wants a Dobie... now I want one that looks like Titan! : )
