So excited to share a little about our Limited Edition Porch Session Contest Winner Dominique and her 2 babes, Red and Buddy. This fur family was so much fun to be out working with. We met at a local off leash dog park called Rotary Park in Duncan, BC. I arrived just before 7 pm to get set up and met up with Red, Buddy, fur mom Dominique and fur dad Sebastien. What a fun and energetic family - check out the video below of our session (thanks to Sebastien for being my assistant). I love the park we shot at because of the gorgeous open fields and trails around, so many options to work with. To top it off it is also the puppers favorite park and we ran into a few of their friends during out session.
Both these pups are rescues from Nanaimo SPCA buddy is 5 years old and Red is 10 months and a very recent addition to the family. These are some energetic dogs, and I had suggested that they have a good run prior to our session, but even with their daily run they were still ready for more and have energy for days. Speaking of energy, their fur mom Dominique is a professional IFBB Fitness Pro and keeps them all in tip top shape both mentally and physically with daily jogs and the occasional pup work out. If you live in the Duncan area, and frequent the Someno's Dog park you will likely have seen them along the dyke. Anyhow, our session took a bit longer than expected as they were very playful but the evening was gorgeous so we just took our time and strolled along to great spots.
If you don't know by now, I am animal crazy (although I may have some challenges with spiders) I really enjoy them around the house. The past few months have seen a major change in how much time we spend at home, and my brood of critters are loving the change. It also offers opportunities to foster. I saw a story about Kings Harvest Animal Shelter that have had to shutter their doors as they have temporarily emptied out their shelter, having all their dogs find foster homes ! How amazing is that?
So, that brings me to Fred. Life can turn on a dime, and put you in a position you never though would happen, but that's what happened to Fred. He needed to find a new home through no fault of ANYONE's. After some time he came for a day visit to see if he would like to live with us. Did he fit with the busyness of the home, and the number of other animals etc. He walked in like a big brother to Honey and 2 weeks later he came to us for fostering. Since that time, he has settled in like a champ and learning to get along with the smaller critters in the household. He is a big bro to Honey, and they are constantly tussling and playing chase. I never thought I would foster and this may end up in a 'Foster Fail' with Fred remaining with us but either way, I adore it. So if you are able I strong suggest looking at Fostering a Dog in need, they do so much better in a home vs a shelter and who knows you may end up being a 'failure' as well.
