Coronado Pet Photography: Marty, Sally & Tag!

For this fabulous Coronado pet photography session, I knew three shelties would be my subjects – and since they’re all the same breed, I was a bit nervous about being able to tell them apart, to tell you the truth! But as soon as I walked up to their front yard – and all three of them announced to the world that I was there with nonstop barking! – I knew I wouldn’t have any problems figuring out who was who! It’s not possible to mix up these dogs; for all being the same breed, each one of them is incredibly unique! Marty, the biggest, has the darkest coloring and the most outgoing personality. Sally, the medium-sized and light-colored girl, is a total cutie – just don’t approach her on wheels! (She has a “thing” against skateboards, bikes, and basically anything on wheels… it’s a good thing I left my rollerblades at home.) And Tag, the littlest one of the bunch, was rescued from an abusive situation (poor thing – he’s an absolute sweetheart) and so he has very different fur than his brother & sister. It doesn’t grow quite right – but that’s okay, he makes up for it with adorable floppy ears! :)

And just to prove that you won’t have any trouble telling them apart either, I’m going to mix it up for this sneak peek blog post: instead of featuring the dogs individually, I’m going to show you all their group photos instead! These dogs take a great family portrait, haha!

Can you tell which dog is which from my descriptions?

We even got them together on the pitcher’s mound! These dogs’ human brothers are avid baseball players – and incredibly talented ones, from what I hear – so this family spends plenty of time around baseball fields every day. We figured it was only fitting to let the dogs have their moment on the diamond!

The real showstopper, of course, was the Coronado Ferry Landing. What Coronado pet photography session would be complete without getting a few photos with the San Diego skyline in the background? It was an absolutely gorgeous spot, and as a little bonus for me, all the dogs were on their best behavior! (Okay, if you’re still not sure: Marty is on the left, Tag in the middle, and Sally is on the right in this photo!)

Brenda, thank you for spoiling me with your ridiculously well-behaved dogs! I had a great time with all of you, and I’ll talk to you soon! :)
