From San Diego to Portland: Rudy the Basset Hound

If you saw my previous post about Lucy the newfoundland mix, then you already know where I spent my Christmas: Portland, Oregon! It’s where I’m from, originally, and although the idea of a sunny San Diego Christmas was veerrrryyyyy tempting, Mr. Shamrell & I made the 2-day trek up I-5 to be back home with family in the (chilly) northwest. And while some people take vacations to get away from work, I love the opportunity to work while on vacation! So I was thrilled to be able to meet Rudy the basset hound a few days after Christmas! He lives on the outskirts of Portland, in Beaverton – in an area that some might call “the Pearl of Beaverton” – and his parents are engaged to be married! How exciting is that?! (Even if you can’t see the excitement on Rudy’s face, trust me… he’s pumped.)

I thought Rudy the basset hound might have been named after the Notre Dame football player, but it turns out, Rudy is actually named after Rudy Fernandez, the Portland Trail Blazer! Since I’m a Notre Dame fan and a Blazers fan, I love it either way! haha! And I suppose it’s fitting that his namesake is a famous athlete – because believe it or not, Rudy goes running with his dad! On a regular basis! A basset hound!! I could hardly believe it, but his parents promised me it was true – and so of course we had to get some running photos with Rudy’s big ears swinging & short legs flying! But for now, let me introduce you to (the stationary version of) Rudy:

Don’t you just adore his big eyes? And his dashing scarf!



Oh Rudy… you kill me.



Josh & Lisa, thank you so much for the opportunity to work with the most handsome basset hound this side of the Mississippi – I had a simply fabulous time during our session & I hope you did too! (And Lisa, you’re a total trooper for braving a cold to come outside with us!) Talk to you both soon! :)
