Discover Dogs 2012 Pictures

November 13, 2012 Leave a comment

Here’s some of the dogs I photographed at Discover Dogs at Earls Court last Saturday. It was good to be back there again and I managed to meet up with some of the lovely people I’d been corresponding with over the year. This is a great event to go to if you’re already a dog owner or are thinking of getting a dog as 200 or so breeds are there on show. Enthusiastic and knowledgable breed owners are there to fill you in on everything you need to know about their particular breeds. I’m always intrigued to see so many different dogs all together; tall ones, short ones, fat ones, thin ones, lively ones, docile ones. They’re all there. I even managed to see a few that I recognised (and photographed) from last year like Vinnie the Dogue de Bordeaux and Bobby the Schnauzer. One dog I didn’t get to see however (although I know he was there because he was tweeting) was Lucky the Chihuahua. I did a dog photo session with Lucky a month or so back and some of the pics can be found after this post and on my Facebook page.

I’m also going to give a mention to the person with the best hair of the day, namely Bridget Orlando. She was photographing the poodles at the same time as me so I just had to get a shot of her with her closely-cropped, pink spotty hair. Bridget is an artist who paints people and animals – her dog portrait gallery has some lovely images – check it out.

Friday at Crufts #1

March 9, 2012 Leave a comment

It’s gundogs this morning and there’s some seriously beautiful dogs out there.

I noticed lots of Irish Setters doing that lovely thing of resting their heads on the backs of other Irish Setters.

I overheard someone explaining the difference between Irish Setters and Irish Red & White Setters – apparently Irish Setters want to please you (the owner). Irish Red & White Setters want to please themselves. Wonder if this rings true with you owners out there.

Boxer Puppy’s First Trip Out

December 12, 2011 Leave a comment

On the same walk last week when I saw and photographed Stan (the chocolate Lab in the previous post), I also came across Ollie, a ten week old Boxer puppy.

Ollie was actually on his first proper dog walk and loving every minute of it.

Storywise, this just worked perfectly as the aptly-named canine equivalent of Laurel & Hardy were having great fun chasing each other around.

Last week surely was a good week for puppies what with also photographing Nigella’s Miniature Schnauzer pups.
