I had a balct last Monday at Milo’s pool party with many of his furry friends. Majority of the pictures taken on dry land are over at the facebook album . What I had fun with was my little canon S90 compact in this waterproof bag/case.
Dogs and water, a combination that works to create plenty of fun especially if the dogs are the hyper sort. It was this sort of combination that I had during a recent pool session with two JRT’s and a mongrel at the Mutts And Mittens pool. Needless to say I had plenty of fun but from the pictures, it would seem the models had more
Russell demonstrates the correct launching technique. As the pool sides are slippery, he uses his hind paw to push off the wall
He does look kinda awkward in flight though..
Leo, on the other paw, has a much better form
Although his entry is kinda awkward as well
It was quite fun watching him climb out the opposite side…
It is quite well known that water and camera’s do not really mix well but thanks Camera Rental Centre who lent me the underwater case and waterproof video camera, it seems they CAN mix quite well! I think I’ll let these shots speak for themselves..
After this pool session, rest assured I will definitely be looking forward to future shoot involving dogs and water. Oh and you you remember I mentioned about the video camera?
Here’s a short collection of shots showing just how some hot sundogs like to cool off in the tropical heat courtesy of the Mutts N Mittens Pool.
Yellow and Mika just enjoying the water
Leo and Nereus waiting to retrieve their fav toys..
(left) If you don’t throw it soon enough he will make this face.. (right)but once you do he really goes for it!
Here are some of the very agile little JRT’s with their jump techniques. First up is Leo
And Russell who manages to get a little bit more hang time
Leo does like to take alternative routes at times and will climb out on the side with no steps!
And of course there is the shake-dry…
Hope you enjoyed the pictures and have or are having a great Sundog!
