Lots of Moxie

I think Moxie's name, fits her to a T.
Moxie - noun  
vigor, verve, pep
This girl only stood still when waiting for the toy to be thrown and even then you could feel the energy radiating from her.
One of my favourite things about watching dogs run is that you can tell that they are doing something that they LOVE to do. 
Thank you Pat and Moxie for a great time.  We can do that again any time!


Teaser - {Moxie}

I met Moxie and Pat this morning for a photo session down at Popson. Moxie was the perfect model. This is hands down, my favourite picture from the morning. I think it captures her intensity, athleticism and sense of fun. More to come soon.


Popson Park

Popson Park is one of my favourite places to take pictures of dogs. As it is an off leash park, dogs can run freely there. I think it is the least busy of the dog parks (the fact that you are sharing the space with rattlesnakes might be a reason for that!), it is next to the river so the dogs can swim, there is a mix of natural grasses and mowed areas (which are great if you have a short dog and are trying to get pictures) and if you are feeling energetic you can even climb the coulees.

At this time of year there are lots of flowers in bloom. I am sure lots of them are weeds, but their colour can still add to the beauty of a photo.

I'll be heading out there again tomorrow morning to meet Moxie, the red and white border collie that won the photo contest a few months ago. I can't wait. I just hope I can keep up with her!


A New Site

Sorry for moving things so soon after starting. I wanted to try a new blog hosting company for the photography blog and I just wasn't liking it. I kept thinking that I just wasn't familiar enough with it and that it would get better, but I just wasn't finding the other blog site easy to manage despite a few months of trying. So back to Blogger I've come.  Pixel is excited about the change.

I know have been horrible at doing regular posts on the photography blog. I'm sorry! I've been debating whether or not to combine it with the daycare blog, but have decided that it is a separate enough service to deserve it's own space. So please be patient, as the business grows, so will the blog.

If you are here for the first time and want to see the original blog you are free to check it out here.
