Another shoot for late last summer. I got the opportunity to photograph two American Bulldog's named Elliot and Lola. This was another incredibly hot day. The great thing about these two is that they went full boar for about 20 minutes and then were spent. The rest of the session I could just hang back and shoot as we walked the paths, played in the mud and explored the park. Bully breeds are amazing!
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.
It was great meeting everyone at the March 21st Community Bark meetup. The weather was perfect, all the dogs looked great and I think the photos turned out really well. I'm looking forward to the next meetup and bringing my dog Chloe to burn off some energy! Thanks to Andrew with http://www.communitybark.net for putting together a great event.
