Del Mar Dog Photos: Chase the Bearded Collie!

There’s a beautiful story that accompanies these Del Mar dog photos. Chase is a happy-go-lucky bearded collie who, at nine years old, keeps her mom company out in the San Diego desert, where they live. She doesn’t get to come visit the beach very often, but recently, she’s been staying with her human “sister” Haley in Carlsbad, and trips to the beach are becoming much more frequent! Even though she misses her mom (she even “sulked” on her sister’s patio her whole first day in Carlsbad!), she’s adjusting to a new pace of life here on the coast for the time being. Because what Chase doesn’t know is that, unfortunately, her mom was recently diagnosed with cancer. So Haley happily introduced Chase to her house in Carlsbad, to give their mom plenty of rest following a recent surgery. Now, I’m thrilled to report that that surgery went really well! That means Chase’s mom is on the road to recovery (yay!) and Chase will be back with her in a few weeks – double yay! But for the time being, Haley & Chase are spending some extra time together as sisters – and what better get-well gift could they give their mom than photos from a photo session? We enjoyed a lovely romp in the park in Del Mar, and the light was absolutely perfect for us. Take a look!

 I’m told that bearded collies (“beardies”) are typically low-energy, lazy dogs. So… did someone forget to tell that to Chase?? This girl is a serious athlete – and nothing, nothing gets her going like her tennis ball!

I know this post is about Del Mar dog photos, but can you believe this sunset? Oh wait – it’s this beautiful every day in Del Mar. Sigh.

  What beach photo session would be complete without a sopping-wet dog? Chase definitely loves the water – in fact, her favorite thing to do is plop herself down right in the surf!

Chase, thank you for being your hilarious, comedic self! Haley, thank you for a super-fun session – something tells me we’re going to have a LOT of photos in your gallery! :)
