3 Rat Terriers & a Papillon

Oh, what a FUN session this was! I keep smiling when I look at these pictures. These four dogs have a pretty great life: a loving mom + dad, a huge backyard to hunt lizards and mole crickets, and agility trials to keep them extra busy! These pups just don’t know how good they have it! :)


I also love these dogs’ names: they go A-B-C-D! First up is B for Boomer, a sweetheart and toy hoarder.

D is for Dottie, who keeps a lookout in the yard. I imagine this is what her prey sees, seconds before the end… if I were a lizard and saw this look on her face, I’d be TERRIFIED.

 Dottie sometimes looks less intimidating! (Cute ears, right?)

Here’s Arnie, the lone papillon and bark-a-holic…

And last but not least, Callie can be a real sweet girl…

Thanks for a wonderful session, Cindy! Now I get to start the task you gladly handed off to me: whittling down the MANY photos I took to the absolute best ones. It’s a good thing your dogs are so cute – I think you’ll have plenty to pick from when we get together again!
