Brace yourself – you’re about to see TONS of cuteness in this blog post! :)
I had an absolute blast at my session with Della & Clyde! Della is a 4-month-old German shepherd puppy, and even as German shepherd puppies go, this girl is beautiful. Clyde is an 8-year-old dachshund (half wirehaired, half shorthaired!) and he’s a super-handsome little guy with just a bit of scruff… but what was even more fun to see than their adorable faces was the way they’re so attached to one another! Della is much bigger, of course, and she’s still growing, but she plays gently with little Clyde (well, mostly gently) and they are absolutely inseparable! They constantly want to see each other, play with each other, be close to each other… their friendship is so touching to see!
For our session, we started at the studio and then headed to beautiful Balboa Park. Both dogs did wonderfully at each location, and even though we didn’t make it to the beach like we planned (boooo, cloudy weather!) I’m already a bit nervous at how big their parents’ gallery is going to be! There were already too many images to pick from for their sneak peek… so this is just a small sample of everything to come for these two pups!
This is Della! Can you even handle that adorable head tilt?!
And this is Clyde! He has a much more serious demeanor, and never likes to be more than two inches away from his parents or Della… but we managed to coax him away for a few photos with the help of some delicious treats!
We played fetch at Balboa Park – and this was Della’s first time off-leash in public! She did soooo well, and was totally focused on that squeaky ball, running straight back to her dad with it every time! Yay, Della!
Clyde runs with Della but can’t quite keep up… so sometimes he prefer to relax instead.
Okay, one more – I can’t resist – these two are such a sweet little pair!
Tom & Dale, thank you both for a wonderful afternoon, and for all your help wrangling these two! I simply can’t wait to show you the rest of our photos! :)
