Dogs have always been a huge part of my life. I grew up with English Springer Spaniels. They were silly clowns who wormed their way into our hearts. And our beds. My first 4-H obedience dog was a Springer named Binky. Binky wasn’t stellar in obedience, and neither was I. But we had fun.
Years later a Springer named Cassie captured my heart and propelled me into the show ring. My first show dog, Cassie had both beauty and brains. Surprisingly, we won some big awards for our obedience teamwork.
Today I share my home with Parker, a standard poodle, and Simon, a goldendoodle rescue.
They’ve sat for many a portrait, silly and beautiful, and I know someday I will be very glad we spent the time to capture these beautiful images.
