Elvis the Cane Corso Pup

This is 8 week old Elvis he is one of the survivors of Ravens last litter.

We are babysitting the grandkids this weekend and this puppy. He went to his new home yesterday in San Antonio. The grandkids go back home today lol.

He just had his ears cut on Thursday and has white stiches so if you notice a thread coming out his ear its just the stich thread.

He has a cleft lip but it’s just the lip, not the roof of his mouth that is why he is called Elvis see his little gap in the middle of his mouth. I can just see how cute this will be when he gets his big teeth in showing off a new tooth.

This pup has a cute personality and followed me around all day long yesterday and slept in Jacks lap.

Puppy breath and puppy kisses will make anyone’s days brighter.

Weenie Dog Puppies

Little Lady was so big I honestly thought she had 5 pups in there. Last Tuesday she finally had 3 pups.

Two of them are quite rare the black one is a full piebald tuxedo this one is a female. The multicolored brown is a shaded red OR a chocolate-based red it is a male it depends on the nose color and that changes a bit. The brown is a solid chocolate female.

They weighed .85, .80 and .65 on day 6 Monday morning. Not even 1 pound yet lol.

They are AKC registered miniature long haired Dachshunds.

These pictures were taken on Sunday I was using a metal bed Jack had made me to use in newborn pictures and a wooden barbie doll bed my dad had made.

The joy of fuzzy little puppies make everyone happy.

The perspective of pictures

A picture of a flower can look totally different by the way you frame it.

Try moving to the left or the right or shooting from above to see how you can change up the look.

Leaving negative space in the picture below allows for an interesting perspective.

Cropping the picture much closer changes the look of the image.

In this case I prefer the one with the negative space because I feel like it draws me into the picture. For some reason I like the negative space on the left hand side I have no idea why.

This flower is the Agapanthus ( Lily of the Nile). These were beautiful this year and they were clearance flowers from Lowes.

Creativity is in the eye of the beholder.

Colors in the landscape

The mexican heather with its green leaves and small purple flowers provide the perfect backdrop for the purple heart wandering jew.

The moss rocks balance it all out with there neutral tones.

We have this combination on the edge of our koi pond and it has worked out quite well and adds to the natural beauty of the area.

A splash of purple

Mexican Heather is one of those plants you can buy that keeps putting on a show all year long.

It is actually false heather not sure how it got its name.

It’s fairly inexpensive and works out great as a border around a flower bed.  We probably have somewhere around 30 of these plants. They work out great for a spot of color in an area that might not have a lot of colors.

They seem to like it in the sun or partial shade they do well in both areas.

 

 

Happy 2nd Birthday Zoee

Zoee is two years old today she is one of our two boxer dogs.

Happy Birthday Miss Zoee.

She is just as hyper as she was at 5 months old when we got her.

Of the 3 dogs, she is the one who is always running, jumping, and hopping all day long.

She lives to run like a greyhound across the yard making tight turns and leaving the other two in her dust in the 1/2 acre back yard.

You can not water your plants with her in the yard because she loves to get the spray of the hose and you spend all your time playing with her.

We love our Zoee she is the sweetest boxer dog shes a snuggler and a lightweight compared to the other two.

She was a great addition to our family as a companion for Daisy and she has been great playing with Cricket and teaching her tricks of the trade. All 3 dogs get along great probably because they are all 3 females.

She was not cooperating for her photo session so hopefully more pics soon.

Dogs will put a smile on your face and find a special place in your heart but most of all they will change your life forever.

Cream Colors

Sometimes there a picture that you take that requires some special editing.

This one was one of those pictures I added a cream tone to the coloring and a vignette on the edges.

This picture of the rose was taken with my macro lens. I use that lens a lot.

Up close and personal

Daisy loves to distract me when I have the camera.

She came up to me when I was sitting down outside and looked straight into my macro lens. I could not resist taking a picture of her but did not realize how good it would turn out.

Its moments like this that capture your heart and make you want to get your pet’s portraits done.

Sunrise Rose

The morning sunrise kissed the petals of the rose and the dew sparkled like diamonds.

The bokeh is the glitter in this picture.
