Little Cold Noses and Big Happy Smiles.

As she snipped away at my split ends, I felt a tiny cold nose inspecting my sandaled feet.  He sniffed and nosed around, then crawled underneath the sink and flopped down, eyes half closed, not a care in the world.  I came back later to photograph him with his sister.  They tumbled down the stairs of the back deck, still figuring out how to run and coordinate all these floppy limbs.  Whimpering, romping, tussling, and nibbling on my shoes when I wasn’t looking, they explored their new world.

My fabulous hairstylist added two new members to her family – these adorable Swiss Mountain Dog puppies.  Photographing them was sheer joy and summery delight – I just got down on my hands and knees and followed them, the grin of a six-year-old spreading across my face.  Their grass-level view that won’t last for long – they’re going to be enormous in very short order!  So happy I had a chance to capture a little slice in time.  Soon, their new family will barely remember the time that these two were smaller than a basketball…

Moose, the big orange cat, supervised the proceedings:

Thanks again, Jennifer, for allowing me to enjoy the pet party and create some images of these cuties!  I hope they help you remember these little sweeties when they grow up to be HUGE little sweeties.  🙂
