Judging by the amount of wagging tails last night, the yappy hour at the Heights at Park Lane was a resounding success. All the attending pups were free to roam off leash to play with old friends and make new ones! There was such a diversity of breeds – from a Toy Australian Shepherd to a Bull Terrier and what I believe is an Ewok (below). Thanks to everyone who came out!

Seamus is 10 year old Wheaten Terrier who loved exploring Klyde Warren park during his photo session.  We went early on a weekday morning so we could have the whole place to ourselves. Gorgeous light + gorgeous location + gorgeous dog = awesome photo session!   After sniffing lots of flowers and meandering down the paths, we finished off with a visit to the splash fountains so he could cool off and have a drink. Thanks for a great session, Seamus!

I love photographing my clients at a location that is particularly meaningful to them. This fun family loves hanging out at Bishop Arts District. Its got a great vibe with so many cute shops and restaurants plus tons of super colorful murals everywhere you look! Bella is the the blue pit and Pancho is the black Rottweiler mix. These two are seriously close. They don’t like being apart and I’m told that after a long day they’ll cuddle up together and Bella puts her arm around Pancho. (Isn’t it funny that we call them arms but they are really legs? lol!)

Lastly, I’d like to thank the stray cat that showed up in the alley at the end of our session (bottom photo). He kept Bella and Pancho looking alert even though they were both exhausted at the end of the session! I may have to hire a professional cat handler to replicate the experience for future sessions! 🙂

A friend of mine is fostering this beautiful and super sweet guy and when she posted pictures on facebook, I knew I had to meet him! Bruce Wayne nearly died before he was rescued. A terrible case of mange, an abscess on his face and various other health issues meant he stayed at the doctor for months in order to recover. At first, he was very wary of humans and was too afraid to even make eye contact. Since then, he has had months of love at his foster home where he gets along famously with two other dogs and a cat. Working with Bruce, I would have NEVER guessed he had such a hard life. He was SUPER sweet, very gentle and very, very mellow. He was very confident walking around the Shops at Legacy during our session and even came right up to me. He is a very chill dog and any family would be incredibly lucky to have him! He is neutered and house-trained.  If you’d like to meet him, I know he will be at Taste of Dallas this weekend! Click here to check out his profile and get more info on adopting him.

Large black dogs are often stereotyped and overlooked because people are afraid of them, but this guy truly is a gentle giant (he took treats out of my hand so gingerly – a welcome change from my labs who practically take my hand off!)  Please spread the word to your friends and family and let’s get Bruce a forever home!

Meet Rufus! Doesn’t he look dapper with his red bow tie? This old man is full of personality. At 12 years old, he still loves to chase balls and chew on squeaky toys. He is the apple of his mom’s eye and I can certainly see why! Thanks for letting me photograph you, Rufus!
