Miss January :: Daisy the Boston Terrier

Next up is Mavis’s sister, Miss Daisy.  Daisy is a 7 year old Boston Terrier who is super sweet.  She was quite the natural model, especially compared to her sister, who wanted nothing to do with me.

I love that first one so much, I got a giant print made for future displays… or just to hang in my office.

She’s such a serious little dog, like a tiny, wee runway model…

Miss April :: Mavis the French Bulldog

This adorable Frenchie is one of the thirteen lucky fur-kids that got voted into the 2010 Humane Society of West Texas Calendar.  She and her sister Daisy (who will get her own blog post soon) got their own mini session to show off how completely adorable they are.  I really did love all of the great pets I got to meet through the contest, but Mavis MIGHT just be my favorite.  I love. her. face.

A great pet photographer once said that you can get some hilarious shots by feeding a dog and shooting wide.  This shot on the left cracks me up.  She was totally chomping away on some turkey.    Otherwise, she was totally not interested in looking at the camera.

This last one is my favorite shot of Miss Mavis, and is the shot we used in the calendar.   I just love her big watery eyes and wrinkly face.

Reilly’s Ranch

Holy cow… its been almost two months since I last posted.  I’ve been incredibly busy with work, and the holidays, and a GIANT project for the local Humane Society.  Luckily that’s been more or less wrapped up, and now that the holidays are done and over with, my goal is to get myself organized and get caught up on all the blog posts that I’m behind.   There certainly are enough of them waiting in the queue.

These shots are from an afternoon spent out at a local horse rescue called Reilly’s Ranch.  If and when I am ever able to live out in the country, I really want to adopt one of their horses.  You know, in addition to the alpacas and the camel…

Reilly’s Ranch is run by a lovely gal by the name of Amy, and her husband.  She wasn’t there when I went out to take the shots so her husband showed me around.  It was cold and windy, and my hands were frozen by the time I was done, but I had a wonderful time getting to meet all the fantastic horses.

Amy’s place reminded me a lot of my own house, though with horses instead of dogs.  Her husband gave her a strict limit on the number of horses they could take in, which she promptly blew past without a second thought.  And many of the rescues have now become permanent residents.

A big thank you to Amy and her hubby for showing me around and introducing me to all the sweet horses.
