52 weeks of Peanut Butter – part seven

52 weeks of Peanut Butter – part seven

I started the month with photos in the studio. I was playing with some different lighting so the youngest got to play model for me again. I've now learned that I can't use food rewards unless I want to spend hours in Photoshop afterwards cleaning up the drool froth...

When you share your home with the dog world's answer to Zoolander and Hansel it stands to reason that you're going to use their handsome faces to sell your services. My boys are very used to posing for me and they really brought their A-game to my studio that day....

52 weeks of Peanut Butter – part six

July was a hectic month of studio setting up and getting ready for the Dog Lovers Show but I'm so far into this project now I'm determined to keep going! Even if I have to cheat occasionally and do two shots on the same day. I always thought that cocking their leg...

52 weeks of Peanut Butter – part five

I got up very early to get this photo of Butters. Generally his obedience is pretty good but he's basically still a puppy and loves testing the boundaries. This rock wasn’t far from a walking track where people had their dogs off lead and Butters had major FOMO (his...

I shared one of April's 52 weeks photos in my last post so I only have three official pics in this round up. Butters is nearly 7mos now and still no sign of him stopping growing. He's overtaken Bruno but they're still the best of friends. He actually plays heaps with...

It's high time I spread some more Peanut Butter on my blog (messy, but yum!). It's week eight and I haven't missed a 52 weeks photo yet so I'm pretty smug about that. I have done a couple of lame last minute ones and the pain of having to see them included in the...

Introducing Peanut Butter – Sydney Puppy Photos

It will come as no surprise to anyone that we decided to adopt one of our foster puppies. The dog formerly known as Snoop is now called Peanut Butter – or Butters or Butterball or Butthead, depending on his behaviour - it's a very versatile name! With Chopper now 13...

In memory of Trixie (2006? – 01.10.18)

I collected a pretty blue brindle dog from Hawkesbury Pound in April 2008. I'd never met her but the rescue group said she seemed like a nice dog so we offered to foster her. I dropped her at kennels to be quarantined before she could be desexed and then brought home....
