I recently had the pleasure of meeting "Ryken" a 1 1/2 year old Nova Scotia Duck Trolling Retriever. I had never seen one of the breeds before, so what a treat to have him and his mom in the studio for a "Mini" session.
His mom, Rhonda is a local pet business owner, running a busy Canine Fitness & Fun Center here in Denver. Ryken gets to go to work with her every day and charm her staff and clients with his winning looks and personality. Gotta love his color and crimped ear hair! Playful and obedient he was gently guided by his loving mom through a wide variety of fun poses. Among the favorite images were these two of Ryken frozen between mom's legs waiting for the nearby treat and, in contrast, him actively playing with his red toy.
The final linen textured prints are on display at Rhonda's business and home, part of a collection of prints celebrating the lives of the amazing dogs that have touched her life over the years.
