welcome, Arlo!

We've added a new, not-so-small dog to the pack, and he's just terrific. This is Arlo. He was rescued from a shelter on the day he was to be euthanized, and we adopted him from the rescue. He's definitely a handful, but I know he will be worth the training and the patience. You'll be seeing more of Arlo (named after Guthrie, of course) on these pages in the future.

aging so gracefully

I recently shot a wonderful girl named FiFi. She's over 17 years old, and although frail and delicate, was such a love that I wanted to share her.

rest easy, Phil

One of my clients' dogs, the fabulous Phil, passed away on saturday a couple of weeks ago, the same day that Lola left us. I'm so glad I had the chance to photograph her family. Wishing Phil rests easy, and peaceful, happy memories for his family.

sending good thoughts and best wishes

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to photograph the most adorable couple: Mike and Berlinda, and of course their Boxer named Bettie :)

Mike is a Marine, has been to Iraq twice already and is going back in September. I won't hold it against him that he called me "ma'am" (it was actually awfully sweet, because he's this hulking guy).

Please send all your good thoughts and good luck wishes to him so that he can return safely to B & B.

now back to business

It's been a hectic and very sad last couple of weeks. Losing Lola was terribly hard on us, and we had some inbetween dog issues that made it even harder. But losing Ivan and A and D (they're moving tomorrow) is topping off the month, and it's only the 3rd!

But back to business tomorrow!

love, lola

Sadly, we lost another member of our pack today: the lovely Lola, who has been with us 11 years, passed away this afternoon. We miss her terribly already; she was an affectionate, lovely dog and the only dog I've ever known who had perfected the balance between "human" characteristics and dog characteristics. She greeted us every single time we came in the door, and she slept by the front door to guard us. She will be great missed. Especially her kisses. Love you, Lola. Miss you.
