San Diego Golden Retrievers Lucy, Gracie & Scarlett

I’m often asked if I own a golden retriever – probably because, let’s be honest, this breed is all over my website! I show canvas gallery wraps of golden retrievers at events, I have a sample coffee table book featuring golden retrievers, and they’re in each of the photo galleries on my website – well, except the feline gallery, of course! But the truth is, I don’t have a golden retriever. I just have my Bailey, and I’m sure she doesn’t have any golden mixed in her heritage. However, I loooooove to admire goldens from a distance! They’re indescribably beautiful; I just think they’re the supermodels of the dog world! I’d happily adopt a golden retriever in the future; they’re happy-go-lucky dogs with a fabulous temperament, and this family of goldens I photographed recently is no exception! Let me introduce you to Lucy, Gracie & Scarlett!

This is Scarlett, the youngest of the pack at only six months. And let me tell you – she’s a fireball, but I’ve worked with older & more mature dogs that didn’t have half the obedience she knows at such a young age!  To get a puppy to sit, lay down, and then stay long enough for her mom to inch out of the frame… now that’s a challenge! Good girl, Scarlett!

 This is Gracie, the blondie! Her gorgeous light fur is vastly different from her sisters’ rich red coloring, but her personality is just as sweet. The only times she didn’t have a big goofy golden smile on her face was when she was chasing down her ball, like in this photo! The girl is an athlete, for sure!

And last but certainly not least, this is Lucy, the oldest and noblest of the pack. With age comes experience, and she’s impeccably trained. A photographer’s dream to work with! Plus, I love white faces like hers. :)

 And finally, here are all three golden girls together! (Don’t you love how the orange in the trees matches Lucy & Scarlett’s fur?)

Bobbi & Teri, thank you so much for an absolutely marvelous session. We have sooo many photos, thanks to all the adorable poses your girls struck for me… thank you for training them so incredibly well!  :)
