These two dogs have plenty of stories to tell. Both of them rescue cases and one of them having travelled to three countries in his lifetime. While it is not surprising that they did have their little quirks ( this is why I am thankful for the pre-shoot consultation) , the session went great thanks to lots of bribery and hard work by Jo and Rod.
We tried to start by trying to burn off some excess energy. Which proved to be difficult for Baloo since she has some collie blood and therefore infinite energy.
Cookie on the other hand had hip issues and took things more leisurely..
We did manage to get him to do a few tricks too
Not to be upstaged, Baloo also showed us some feats of balance
We then had her settle down for her “beauty shots” Easier said than done as she did get bored pretty quickly..
Then it was Cookie’s turn. Much easier as he is REALLY motivated by treats
And of course we had to try to get them together..
I love her little head tilts..
The best part of the session happens when you get the “pawrents” together with the furkids…
Took quite a while to get her to come in. You can see Jo desperately trying to get her in while Rob is like “this is familiar”
Out-takes are the best
While not perfect, I think this captures the relationship perfectly
Well Jo and Rod, hope you enjoy the pictures Those two are real lucky to have both of ya!
