“Aye, fight and you may die. Run, and you’ll live… at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin’ to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they’ll never take… OUR FREEDOM!”
Can you recognize that quote? I hope so! I wanted to start my blog post about Tuppence & McTavish, two Encinitas Westies with thoroughly Scottish names, with a quote from one of the most famously Scottish movies of all time, Braveheart! And these dogs have just as much passion as William Wallace! … although, I should probably mention that it’s not so much passion for freedom and for Scotland… but for treats, fetch & butterflies! Haha! These dogs live with their mom & their grandma, and they’re definitely enjoying the good life in Encinitas. Tuppence can play fetch all day the in backyard, while McTavish prefers to keep a lookout for butterflies and chase them anytime he sees one. And they both go crazy over Dentastix (especially Tuppence)! I just loved working with them & learning to navigate their independent personalities… we had such a fun afternoon together!
This is McTavish, on butterfly patrol. Don’t they have a gorgeous backyard to watch over?
And this is Tuppence, the snuggly little girl, enjoying a belly rub! Yep, it’s a hard life for these pups. :)
And I just have to include one photo from Tuppence’s hose frenzy at the end of our session… this girl LOVES the hose, haha!
Jeanette, thank you for a lovely afternoon, two adorable dogs, and a gorgeous backyard to work in! :) I’m excited to show you the rest of our images soon!
