There was a time... (let me pause here and say that every time I hear that phrase or say that phrase my mind automatically starts singing that old Harry Connick, Jr. song...you know the one I mean!! If you don't, we may not be able to remain friends...) (Take a listen....Here ya go!!) (cheesy video (sorry Harry!!), great song!) ...that my husband and I decided we needed another dog.
You can read more about it here>>>Aries' Story...it's a good story.
There are other stories, but this one stands out in my mind...Crazy Dog !! Fun times!!!!
All those stories to say we LOVE German Shepherds!!!! Like, really, really, love them!!! SO imagine my absolute surprise and honor when these precious people asked me to come to their home to do a photo shoot with some of their dogs for Christmas cards and such!!!!!
Meet MR & Mrs H. Some of the best people I know!!! Generous and loving!!!
GSD Breeders of the highest quality---very selective of who gets their babies!!!
Classic B&W...one of my "good" faves of the day!!
Such good sports with the wreaths around their necks!
If they look serious, it's because they are!!!
My child was behind me (and to my left a little) holding the prized B.A.L.L.!
B&W with Selective color.....
Some photographers say never do this, but I've never been one to listen to what everybody else says!!! Hahaha!!!
It is Christmastime...so why not?!
This is my favorite outtake!!!!
I LOVE how Koda's tongue is out!! He cracks me up!!
And....He's done!!! Must...get...ball....
Or so he thinks!!! HAHAHA!!!
Back, but hamming it up!!!
Looks like the girls are rolling their eyes in embarrassment!!! hahahaha!!
But....All's well that ends well, right?!!!
Such a fun shoot and we got to love on some puppies afterwards!!! SQUEEEEE!!!!
German Shepherds are the real deal!!! Great dogs and fierce protectors!!!
P.S. I think dogs are like children sometimes...It.Is.Hard. to delete photos of dogs (same as children) so it seems to take much longer to go through files to sort out which ones are keepers. I didn't think the family would want 100 photos that are pretty much the same!!
