Buddies for Life

February 4, 2013

At just twelve weeks old, brothers Chase and Rascal still have some growing to do! Currently, Rascal is about half the size of Chase. It will be interesting to see what they look like when they’re fully grown.

Now don’t let their size throw you off…Rascal may be little but he is mighty! He wasn’t named Rascal for no reason! He’s quick, vocal and quite the busy body. He wanted to be anywhere but where we wanted him. Squeak a toy, he’ll come running. Sit, maybe for a split second, but then he’s got things to check out and explore.

Chase, on the other hand, being the bigger pup, you would think makes the rules. Nah, he’s laid back, easy going and, best of all, extremely treat motivated. He has the sit-for-a-treat thing down like a pro! More than once, Rascal would jump right on top of Chase to get the treat, but it would not even phase Chase…he just kept on sitting! Making noises, or funny sounds and he would twist his head back and forth.

Individual photos of Rascal proved to be the most challenging part of the entire session! Any time we had the treats out Chase would be right there. When we actually had Rascal hold still for a second, here came Chase putting his body right in the way! If we held Chase out of the photos, so that we could focus on Rascal, Rascal went crazy. He wanted to be where his brother was, and nothing was going to stop him from getting to Chase!

These two are definitely buddies! I expect they are going to master the art of getting each other in trouble!!

Happy Girl

February 1, 2013

There’s nothing quite like starting the new year with a happy, energetic, very busy one year old! Although Annie did share some serious faces, and a few tears with us, her go-to expression was definitely one of happiness and delight!

She shared her adorable teeth with a wide open grin, and let me hear a few squeals of delight, matched with wide open smiles!

She gave Mommy a good workout, as we chased her around the studio. Annie may not be walking yet, but with her crawling, she can get anywhere, and fast. The only saving grace was that the dresses Mommy brought for Annie to wear slowed her down…but just a bit! She couldn’t quite figure out how to crawl without putting her knees on the dress fabric. A bit of a challenge…but not enough to stop this busy little lady!
