Puppies in training

Day 54, 2012 When Joy from The Joys of Assistance Dogs told me the puppies were taking their first outing to the park, I knew I had to be there.

Of course, it was during work, so when I saw my boss that morning, I told him I was either going in for brain surgery or a root canal, but I was slipping out of the office for a couple of hours. Yo boss, if your looking, I decided it was brain surgery.

These puppies are so darn cute. I sat down in the grass as I was taking pictures and before I knew it, they were climbing on me as if I were a mountain. We were all soaking wet from the grass before we were done. It was so much fun. How dare Joy say it was time for them to go!

Before any children arrived to play in the park, the puppies did their paces on the playground equipment. It makes sense, playground equipment is developed now so that young children learn to go up and down stairs, balance on the swing bridge, climb… why wouldn’t it be perfect for puppies?

These little guys are so smart and so eager to please, it will be a joy to watch them grow through the lens.

My little rustic studio is located in the heart of the Willamette Valley. Nestled in NE Salem each session begins in the studio with lighting and ends with a romp in our pet-friendly acre of gardens.
