So, Once again it's getting late and I'm still sitting here sorting photos. Getting there but not quite there and have an early morning tomorrow. Came across this group of photos though and thought they were worthy of the story behind them. Purple gave me a run for my money today as I struggled with his photo shoot. A busy little pup he was. And as it turns out, a quick thinker and brave too! As somewhat of a last ditch effort I decided to venture over toward the kennel where Serious and Majestic were enjoying a gorgeous day while at the same time out of my hair allowing me some uninterrupted time with pups and the camera. I discovered some time back, when pups follow me in that direction, the adults will generally offer a bark at the littles as we approach which stops them in their tracks as they cautiously assess the situation. That brief period usually gives me a decent chance at a shot or two before the pups realize all is well and carry on following. Purple was funny though... as he heard the bark, he looked at options and immediately saw a potential safe spot in the igloo dog house which sits along side the drive awaiting it's permanent placement. He wasted no time taking a glance inside and then, without a second thought, in he went with a quick turn around so he could see what was going on. He stood in there briefly and watched. He didn't seem particularly intimidated, just cautious. Then bravery took over as he hopped out and ventured over to say hello to dad. Serious greeted him with interest but fairly short lived interest. Once the interaction all but ceased, Purple ventured over to the other side of the shed to greet the girls, Getka, Skye and Remedy. He bravely and determinedly walked the line and said hello to each. For whatever reason, and worth mentioning I guess, he bypassed Galtero. He was a bit playful with Remedy but in the end settled in next to Getka. Pretty cute to watch. Some pups will boldly walk up to the adults... most don't though, without at least some encouragement.
Making the rounds!
