Isn’t it funny how people get a dog once the ‘having kids’ thing is all done?
That’s what happened to us. And every morning I see lots of the mums and dads walking their little kiddies up to school, past our house and loads of them now have a dog in tow. It would seem to be the thing to do.
So these photo session pics are of a newly-acquired pup called Ruby (a Jack Russell) who belongs to our friends who live around the corner. She was only about 12 weeks when these were taken. Ahhh.
After a few days off from the blog, I’m back with some pictures of Pip, my neighbour’s dog. He’s a Jack Russell X.
I’ve had lots of people commenting on the K&S Courier article from a couple of weeks back. Barney even got recognised in the vets this morning when he went for his yearly jabs.
I’m off to Crufts this week so if anybody knows any local owners/dogs who are going to be attending, showing, exhibiting up at the Birmingham NEC, please let me know. Or at least pass this blog site on to them. It would be good to get some pictures of local dogs/owners/businesses who have an association with the world’s largest dog show.
I’m hoping to get some blog posts done while I’m there so don’t forget to come back and have a look from Thursday onwards.
These last two from 2011 are both crossed with a Japanese Spitz.
Sydney is a very pretty Japanese Spitz / Papillon cross whereas Jack is Japanese Spitz / Jack Russell.
Came across three new owners I’d not met before around Christmas on the way over to Bidborough. I had photographed one of the dogs though, Rafferty, a Border Terrier.
As you know, the weather has been very wet and the ground is boggy and squidgy. This was reflected in the way Shankly, a two year old Jack Russell, looked. He looked great in his own scruffy way, with his wet, curly, muddy coat.
Slightly more refined looking was Bear, a 22 month old Welsh Terrier. I think he’d just had a nice trim in time for Christmas. Unlike the others, it looked as though he had better things to do than hare about in the mud.
This lady certainly has her hands full. From left to right we have Snoopy, Teddy, Spotty, Bella and Buddy. That just looks like hard work to me.
Well, the title almost worked, but this tigger is actually spelt Tigga. She’s a most chilled out Jack Russell and loves nothing more than going on fishing trips. In fact, I believe she’s gone on one tonight. Rather her than me – this dog photographer is now kicking back with a nice glass of wine.
I’ll be out after the first Rugby World Cup semi-final tomorrow morning. BFN.
Just had Frodo’s owner come up to me saying he saw the previous post. Great stuff. Really glad you’re all starting to view the blog. More (other) dog photography to follow, but in the meantime, here’s another couple of Frodo, this time with Rush (a lovely rescue dog looking for a home). Latest Update – apologises to the owner, as Rush is not looking for a home and is definately with a loving family.
