Smile For the Camera

So we did it. We went on our first outing with the pups. We set out early because we had an appointment at 10 AM and we had almost a 2 hour journey ahead of us. Dad placed all the pups in a crate. I sat with Angus and Roxie in the far back of the car behind the doggie divider. The pups were really good. A few of them cried for the first five or ten minutes of the trip, but soon enough they settled right down and were great travelers. We were going to visit the studio of a photographer friend of ours. You know what they say. A picture is worth a thousands words. I am at a loss for words to describe how I feel about my pups going off to their new homes. In fact, I'm not really sure I know how I feel about it. But I do know that I want some great photos of this sweet moment in our lives. Also I thought the new owners might want to order a photo or two of their pup or a shot of their pup with all of his or her brothers and sisters from the photographer.

This photo shoot was a lot of work. It was also a lot of fun. The time flew by really quickly, but at the same time the session lasted for what seemed to be a very long time. Does that make any sense? Well that's how it felt to me. By the end of it the pups were pretty sleepy. They fell asleep in their crate even before we left the studio and they slept all the way home.

I'll be sure to share some of the photos when I get them. Since you couldn't be there with us, here is a short video that I think captures the feel of our studio visit.
