What a brisk Christmas day this was. We decided to take a stroll up to the Yale golf course here in New Haven for a quick walk with Maisy and Palmer. The lighting was quite flat at the golden hour so we made the best of things and still had a great walk on Christmas day. Maisy struck a nice pose,she is always quite easy in front of the camera. Then we had a quick family photograph with Marian, Maisy and Palmer. Wow does it look cold! The final image was our great Pyr, Palmer, looking off in the distance as he spots another dog in the golf course. Merry Christmas everyone!

    Here is Clara. Clara is an adorable, sweet, 8 month old Pyr/lab/hound mix girl pup that is perfect on leash and loves to go for walks in town and in the woods and parks.She is a great swimmer and has been in the ocean and rivers for a cool-off in the summer. Clara loves everybody and enjoys playing with her older sister and brother. She is good with cats and just such a joy to have around. A super happy little pup, who will probably only be about 40-50 pounds when she is full grown – her dad is a Pyr and her mom is a lab-hound mix. Clara is house and crate trained, loves to ride in the car (she just sleeps!) and could be just the dog you are looking for. She is super-sweet and loves to snuggle, but is also alert and independent, just like a Pyr. Clara has graduated from puppy kindergarten class, and she knows sit, down, stay, wait, come, go to your dogbed (well, when she is tired), off, no…she would also be great for agility training as she is such a smart girl, super easy trainable and she loves those special treats! Clara is just an all-around sweetheart ready for her lucky fur-ever family.To find out more about Clara contact the National Great Pyrenees Rescue.

      We had the opportunity to photograph the wonderful Kayla a 12 year old Golden retriever owned by Janice S at the Union Street Dog Park in New Haven. I met Kayla one day and knew that a dog with her personality would be great in front of the camera. It was hard for Kayla to keep her eyes off of Janice since they are very attached and have been together for many years. Janice who is 85 and Kayla who is 12 are virtually the same age!
