Evening everyone. Hope you all enjoyed Diva Dogs Day – I’ve never seen so many pampered pooches in one place before. I will start to add the photographs from tomorrow and will probably put a few posts out during the week so be sure to come back and have a look for your dog.
For now, this is Daisy, a Lhasa Apso who had been blinged-up in purple.
Unlike this morning’s depressing weather, last week was blue skies all the way and great for early morning dog photography. I walked Barney over the farmer’s field to the Bidborough side and came across a woman walking five dogs. I’d not met Llinos before but she runs a business called PuppyPals offering dog walking, dog care and boarding services. I was immediately drawn to the two Dalmatians, Tia and Poppy, she had with her. They just happen to be one of those breeds that is so striking to look at. So when two come along together, it’s no contest – the poor old Labrador didn’t get a look in.
It’s nearly a year since I started this dog photography blog and I’ve only come across one other Dalmatian during this time. It was a very fortunate meeting though as I met Dizzy, the Dalmatian on a snowy day back in February and the picture worked so well, I now use it on my business card.
Tia (with red collar) and Poppy (purple collar) looked particularly good on this bright, sunny morning and I love the way the brow of the hill leaves a nice, clean, blue sky backdrop.
Made the long trip over to the other side of Southborough last weekend to visit the Honnington Country Fair. There was lots to do and see and of course, being a country fair, lots of people brought their dogs along. I had my camera so the dog photography oppotunity couldn’t be missed. Lots of different breeds and shapes and sizes, so this was all good.
I’ll put a few more on my Facebook page so if you like what you see, please ‘like’ my page and share.
