Who remembers the last Koolie I photographed, Paxy? This is her little “brother” Rufus. He’s pretty cute, right?

I have a dog loving friend (who I won’t name and shame) who doesn’t like puppies. I don’t understand, they make me happier than just about anything else on the planet!!

Rufus (and Paxy) belong to a dog trainer so even though he was still really young at his session he already had some basic obedience. That really helps me do my job well.

The day of our shoot was one of the windiest I’ve ever worked on. Rufus did well to avoid getting blown into the water!

After we’d had enough of being blown around we moved up to the park to shelter among the trees. It was quite a long session for a puppy and I was starting to lose his attention (and cooperation) until he found this stick. Apparently sticks are more exciting than hotdog! (Don’t worry, we didn’t throw the stick or let him eat it.)

After all of the things we had to offer had lost their appeal we packed up and let the tired puppy go home to sleep.

Rufus’s wall art and album are currently being produced but I’ll share a photo on my Facebook page once they’re ready.

I’ll be launching an exciting project for puppy owners soon. If you sign up to my mailing list you’ll be first to receive all the details.
