Puppies visit the office

Laura brought Stella & Jake by to meet everybody in my office. Since I have a broken hand, I assigned Stan to cover the visit.

The grass didn't seem that tall! Great pic Stan!

Jana & Jake

John, Evanne, Rob, Amber & Sherry enjoy the furry visitors.

Amber really wants one of the puppies.

Stella gets a belly rub from Mike.

Then I get a kiss on the lips.

First Bath

After work, I went over to Laura's to help give all 4 puppies their first bath. Stella was a bucking bronco in the sink, but passed out when it was over.

Lucy was pretty calm getting a bath but was all wound up when it was over.

Pup-filled Day!!!

Rob & I went to Laura's house to shoot ringflash portraits of the pups, then take them for their first visit to the beach. We had a GREAT time!

Shooting a group shot of all 4 puppies is not as easy as you think.

Whew ... got one decent one.

Can you tell Laura is holding a piece of chicken?!?

Best friends ... Bailey & Stella play with their frisbee.

Stella took her first dip in the ocean.

Rob & Bailey ... I love how his ear is blowing ... Bailey's not Rob's.

Awww! Stella!

Here's the same shot cropped tighter.

These 2 pups are still available for sale ... one girl & one boy. They're so awesome! Everybody is trying to convince me to get two.

Me 'n Stella!

Bailey ... I love his ears!

Laura's got 3 of 4 pups

Stella looks like she's interested in seeing Rob's pix. She actually just wanted a belly rub.

The tuckered pups passed out as soon as they got home.

Stella's First Visit

Rob has been shooting some award winning puppy photos! I LOVE this one sooooo much!

Stella looks right at home ... awww, what a poser!

Rob couldn't fit Stella in the palm of his hand, like he did last week.

Stella strikes a pose for Alan.

All of this posing is making me sleepy!

Rob was the only one to decorate his waffle ... yin & yang.

Rob & I entertained 4 waffle virgins ... Laura, Alan, Sue & Scott (plus Stella).

Saturday at the Log House

Rob put Laddie's favorite toy on his head for a photo.

This is Bailey. He's gonna be Amy & Howie's pup.

Rosie & Laddie look like they're ordering takeout!

Stella has VERY sharp nails. OUCH!

Several times a day, Laura can be seen trying to fish a puppy out from behind the dryer.

Diver on 17

Today I went out to 17 with JR while he shot a diver retrieving golf balls from the lake.

I asked the diver if he could do a cannonball! Hahaha!

Besides golf balls, he was able to retrieve this cameraman's microphone. Ooops!

One bag with many more to come.

I looked in his bag & saw a golf ball in a clam shell.

JR was having fun.

Exhausting Day with the Pups!

Poor Rosie couldn't catch a break!

Rob shot a great fisheye portrait of Laddie!

I think it's a little too soon to be learning the steps. It's their first day in the yard & they're VERY curious!

Laddie likes me & the mini squeaky tennis balls I bought for the puppies. Rosie, well she's just happy to have a moment away from her pups!

Laddie is sooooo sweet ...

... until some innocent puppies try to play with his toys! (He was just kidding)

Guess which one is the alpha dog.

Isn't she adorable?!?

Rob & Laura try to wrangle all four pups.

He figured if he put three pups on their backs, we might be able to get a snap before they scattered.
