What fun it is to photograph dogs in fresh snow! Throw in a newly groomed white, standard poodle that loves to be outdoors as much as it loves its owner, and you’ve got a chance to make some enthusiastic images.
Meet Oliver and Cheri! A woman that adores her standard poodles and shares a zest for life outdoors with them. When she showed up in a red coat, I knew we were off on the right foot, or paw.
One of Oliver’s specialties is ball playing. His ball is as accustomed to his mouth as his tongue. With a light snow falling, Cheri started tossing the ball and Oliver not only caught the ball consistently but did it by earning hundreds of ‘style points.’
I think my favorite of the jump shots, however, was this image:
After a little rest, Oliver was treated to some yummy treats. As he waited patiently, he threw his head back and jutted his chest out as if to say, “hey – look at me sitting so pretty!”
As one of my Snow Dogs, it was a pleasure to meet him for the first time and make some memorable images of he and Cheri together. Thanks for the laughs, Oliver!
