I got to meet Harley (Scottie), Romeo (Greyhound), Rosie (Cocker) and Tess (Terrier mix) on a nice sunny Sunday morning. Everyone in this group has a unique personality and I enjoyed working with them all. Romeo did some running, Harley did some observing, Rosie did some sniffing and Tess did some lounging. They were all great subjects! I was also able to get a nice butt shot of Romeo and Tess. They have nearly identical markings as you can see from the picture below. Thanks Shanna and Bob for introducing me to your pack. I hope you enjoy the pictures. P.S. In need of a great groomer? Shanna owns "Doggie Doo's by Shanna" located in Milwaukee. Voted A-List's #1 groomer in Milwaukee for '08 and '09. More information here: Doggie Doo's by Shanna.
These guys were a blast to shoot! Anakin is the yellow lab/pit bull mix affectionately referred to as "Big Head" by his mom. Gus is the beagle/basset hound mix with a great snaggle tooth rivaled only by his brother Clancy. Clancy looks like a 20lb Rottweiler. What's even better is that they were all rescues from the Wisconsin Humane Society. Anakin is the tennis ball connoisseur. Gus chases the all mighty treat. And Clancy... well, Clancy is kind of a momma's boy. Thanks Erin for introducing me to the boys. It was great meeting you and John. Enjoy the photos.
We got to the Minooka dog park bright and early to capture some of the morning sun. Manning and Little Man were fired up and ready to go. For being 10 years old, Manning (the black/brown/white mix) had some spunk. His brother, Little Man, was one of the fastest, little dogs I've seen in a while. This is especially amazing since, before he was adopted, Little Man had a bad knee and multiple surgeries. We chased some balls, chased a bird and had an all around good time. Manning and Little Man's parents, Donna and Todd, do some great work with fostering for the Wisconsin Humane Society and helping with Greyhound Pets of America (GPA) Wisconsin . GPA Wisconsin is having their annual Greyhound Gala fundraiser on Sept. 26th. More information can be found here. Thanks Donna and Todd for your work with these organizations and for letting me shoot your dogs. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
