More Minion Puppies

I think we are overdue for some puppy photos.

As I said in my last Minion Puppies post, I took far too many photographs of Lily and Miss Kay, two Chesapeake Bay retriever puppies that were dressed up to match some marvellous Minion costumes for Halloween.  Aren’t they cute?!

Lily and Miss Kay were dressed up as Minion Puppies for Halloween (to go with some of the best Minion costumes out there).  We took them to an unused ball field and let them run around free for a while on a gorgeous sunny fall afternoon.

All puppies are cute, of course, so I took far too many photos of them for one blog post.  You can expect to see these cutie pies again!  They were bred by my friend Terry Dancey of Tsunami Chesapeake Bay retrievers – just like my girl Rivet.   They are both lovely girls but I have to say that I would have slipped Lily into my pocket and smuggled her home with me if I thought I could get away with it.

 

My old dog Caiman ~ B+W portrait

Yesterday I took this photo of my old boy Caiman, and posted it to my Facebook page. I wanted to record the gray on his face, and how much it has progressed from this time last year.

Library photo exhibition ~ Squamish Valley Photo Club

The Squamish Valley Photo Club is holding an exhibit in the Squamish library foyer in December. We were all asked to submit the photo that we considered to be The Best of 2012.

I had a difficult time choosing one photo that I thought could be “The Best” one of the year for me. In the end this one won, mostly because the effect is exactly what I was hoping to get when I set up my lights. Also, this is a good photo of my dog, Caiman, and I am rarely happy with the photos I take of him.

There is an opening reception at the library tomorrow (December 5th) from 6-8pm, and the display will be up for the rest of the month. Please come by and check it out!

Kona – Gone Before

It seems fitting for the first post of my new blog to be about the one dog of mine who has gone before. Kona was a truly great dog. This photo was taken less than a week before he left us in January of 2011.
