    After a couple of years of my family begging to get a dog, I had a weak moment and agreed that we should go look at the "Adorable Little Yorkie Puppy" that was advertised in the newspaper.  I was thinking I didn't want a pet in the house - like I need another thing to do!  But, after looking online at the characteristics of the Yorkshire Terrior it seemed he would have all the qualities we are looking for in a dog.  He isn't supposed to shed - #1 prerequisite for me.  He is very sweet and has been sleeping through the night in his crate in Marissa's room.  We had a hard time coming up with a name that all of us liked, but have settled on Riley!  He looks like a Riley, don't you think?

     

    Pets can sometimes be difficult to photograph.  Riley kept coming to me when I got down on his level to get a good angle.  I photograph animals by filling the frame with their face or body and limiting background distractions.  It works well to stand over them and make a noise to get them to look up at you or to get down on their plane and zoom in.  I like to control the settings on my camera so I can use a high aperature that puts the eyes in focus and the background out of focus.  Don't forget to photograph your pets when you first get them - they are only babies for a little while!

    Does anyone have advise on training a puppy?  I'd love to hear from you.  Also, are there some of you who are interested in having your pet photographed?  If there is an interest, I would schedule a couple of days and run a promotion or a fundraiser for a non-profit animal service in our area.
