Well I am going to have to subscribe to the magazine as I have been fortunate to have another of my images published in the Best Dog Photographs in the World section… have had a look at all editions and I have been lucky to have one in each copy up to the most recent December edition. I will post the details of those at another time.
I have really got into the magazine too, there are lots of great articles to read. Lots of breed information, problem guidance and training tips and also many informative stories. If you like dogs then it’s definitely worth picking up a copy.
The image in the September edition is of Flynn aged 12 yrs, a rescue dog from Charney Kennels who is sadly no longer with me. He got me interested in Agility and we learnt together. Those of you that have loved and lost a dog will know the pain and the gap it leaves. He was a very faithful boy and we miss him lots.
The image was taken in the poppies at the Folly Tower in Faringdon. I am fortunate enough to have many nice images of him to choose from and this one will definitely find a space on the wall. It was an image I also used as part of my licentiate Qualification panel with the Societies.
I would like to thank Jackie A for finding him in Dogs Today and letting me know he was there as I had no idea it was being published.
Thank you for reading my blog.
I had a phone call the other day from a friend stating that she was admiring one of my dog images in a magazine. Dogs Today. I thought it must be a recent one so went out to buy it only to find one of my images in it but not the one she had told me about so I decided to order back copies of the magazine since the first image of mine that they published in the July edition.
Totally thrilled to be published in their Best Dog Photographs in the World feature in another one of their magazines. This time the image was of a little wire haired Portugiese Podengo Pequeno puppy. Lovely little character and we had great fun in the bluebell woods, although clearly there are no bluebells in this image. I chose this particular spot as the tree roots really helped put his size into perspective. Sadly the print run on the magazine has a few blue streaks in it. see below for actual image.
Here is the actual image.
The Portuguese Podengo Pequenos are a happy, hardy, intelligent breed and love the active life. They come in two hair types – smooth and wire – they are known for their erect ears, triangular head, elegant lines of body and agile movement, and have been hunters for many centuries in Portugal. loving and lovable but are not lap dogs. They are independent thinkers who listen to their owners and delight in pleasing them.
I know the owners of this little one, love him to bits.
Thank you for reading my post and if you would like to have a Portrait session with your dog then please give me a call.
