The Twos Have It

We were warned early on that Spinoni don't really "turn on" until there two. Well, our first is just now turning two and by golly, she seems to have matured over night. Even little things just all of the sudden work. I have been trying for a year to get her to catch a tossed treat, and every time I tried the darn thing hit

Living with a Goofball

Nonstop entertainment and pure joy! Our little bug, note the antennae length eye brows, keeps a smile on my face and joy in my heart. Leo is so stinking entertaining that I rarely bother to turn the TV on. I'd much rather watch him than anything that primetime has to offer. He is growing so fast! It is a little bittersweet to watch him grow

A Day with My Boy

The camera was in LOVE with Leo today. What a wonderful time we had exploring the dunes. We had the WHOLE place to ourselves! We were out on the dunes for hours and only ever saw one other person at a distance. It was wonderful... So peaceful, and I was able to let Leo run without fear. A couple more weeks and the

Confessions of Neurotic Pet Mom

This weekend absolutely did not go as planned. Nothing like a sick puppy to bring the world to a screeching halt! The details of my topsy turvy weekend are detailed in a previous post (link to the previous post in the upper right corner...). This one is dedicated to the confessions of how absolutely crazy I am about my fur children, and all the not

Thankfully Reunited

Wow, what a scare we had over the weekend! My body is still recovering from the stress, as is Leo's. Still not sure exactly what happened, but Leo obviously got into something that did not agree with him. After his lunch feeding on Friday, about 12:30, he started throwing up. The first two seemed like a regurgitation from eating too quickly, which he does regularly

Welcome Home Leo

So sorry for the lack of communication lately, I have been very busy lately getting puppy prepared. We are so excited to welcome Stella del Nord Tolstoy's Greatest Work, Leo for short, into our pack. The greatest Christmas gift ever! He has been a pure joy so far, and is fitting well into our little family. I can't wait to share lots of

Camping with Dogs

We had a wonderful weekend escape out at Muskegon State Park. The dogs kept us busy and also gave us a laugh or two. Life wouldn't be the same full wonderful joy without them. So many things I can attribute to my fur children. They keep my healthy by getting my butt off the couch to walk them. They keep me calm by

The Back Home Edits

I love to edit on the road, to still have the feel of the place in my blood while working the images. However, it is often the ones I work on when I get back to the studio that are dearest to me. I am often too in the moment to see the completed image in my head when I am on the road. Knowing

Fun with Quail

Had a wonderful training day with our bearded gal. Invested in 20 quail so that she could have some fun and build some confidence. Wicked good fun watching her hunt them down. Nothing but smiles and tail wiggles
