This is Week 1 for the 2015 professional pet photographer’s 52 Week Project and the theme is introductions.
This is my dog Boo Radley. He is a mixed breed dog that we adopted from the Maxfund in Denver, Colorado two years ago. I actually met him because I was taking photos of adoptable dogs for their website. The person that was holding his leash actually said to me, “you might want to back up, I’m not so sure about him.” He was making the same face as he is below. Turns out that’s his very serious focus face, he’s very focused on the snack I have for him.
He was in the shelter for a couple of months before I brought him home and I picked him because I knew he’d be hard to adopt out. A large, all black dog with terrible manners isn’t first on most peoples list for a pet. As it turns out, we hit the jackpot, what we got is a big, goofy, love bug (with terrible manners).
Boo is very smart and loves to learn new tricks and he loves to pose for me as long as I have a tasty snack for payment. He loves it so much that sometimes I have to give him snacks in another room so that I can break down the set without him in the way.
He’s really sweet and he loves people. Sometimes he can be a little too enthusiastic when he meets them but he just wants to get in their lap and lick their face, what’s wrong with that really? 😉
We are looking forward to a new set of challenges for the 52 Week Project this year and are excited to see our old friends and meet new ones in the blog circle. I hope you are excited too.
Cahlean from About A Dog Photography, St. Cloud Minnesota is up next. I had the pleasure of meeting her when she came to Colorado for a fall trip a couple of years ago, she’s sweet and talented and I can’t wait to see what she’s come up with this week.
Have a great week!
