Harry is a Tibetan Terrier. His official name is ‘Happy Haribo’ and the name suits him. He was the most happy and contented dog I have met for sometime. He has entered three dog shows receiving third prize in one for ‘the dog the judges would most like to take home’. He is extremely sociable and loves meeting other dogs. The shoot was held at Harrold Country park in Bedfordshire.

For a little background information, Tibetan terrier are a very ancient breed dating back 2000 years actually from monasteries in Tibet. Also known as the “Holy Dogs of Tibet,” Tibetan Terriers were never sold, only given as gifts by monks to promote good fortune. They were also given the job of retrieving items that fell down the mountainside from the elevated monasteries. A very interesting breed.

 

 

This is Mr Barnabas or Barney for short. Barney is a big beautiful boy who lives indoors.  He was adopted from a cat rescue centre after living on the streets for many years. He has a distinctive moon face and is such a friendly feller. He loves to rub up against you, chase ping pong balls and as most cats like, playing with his toys . After checking out the camera thoroughly he accepted my presence but drew the line at being picked up.

Earlier in the year I mer Rosie who at the time was a seven month old black labrador. A beautiful young dog full of fun and so obedient for such a youngster. She was very inquisitive and playful and especially liked playing in the stream with her ball. The shoot was held in Putnoe woods in Bedfordshire

Had a shoot with Toby who at the time was a  6 month old Labradoodle. He was one of the  best behaved 6 month old dogs I have met.  He did experiment by munching on a bit of charcoal but he had to find out what it tasted like and I m not sure he was that enamoured with it ? The shoot was at a lovely wooded park in Irchester.

 

Earlier in the year I was lucky to have the opportunity to have a photoshoot with a black Cockerpoo called willow but the shoot had an ulterior motive.  The couple were getting married in a couple of months and they wanted they dog Willow to be part of their big day. Any why not indeed….. The shoot was at Felmersham in Bedfordshire and very close to the church where they were getting married.  One feature of the shoot was  specially prepared bandana for the dog to be photographed in as featured in one of the photos.

Here are a few shots from the day.
