Nelson, Cricket & Rusty

Last week I had the honor of photographing the Red Bandanna crew: these gorgeous rescues belong to the owner of the pet food stores all around Atlanta and the metro area that provide high-quality pet foods, chews, treats, shampoos and toys. Nelson is a 10-year-old coonhound/rottweiler/chow/take-your-best-guess mix, and Cricket is a 10-year-old sheltie mix. Rusty is the is the baby of the family, a 3-year-old Bloodhound rescue.

Of course Cricket is the boss and loves ordering the boys around even though they’re both bigger than she is. They are a great pack, affectionate and sweet. I had a great time getting to know each of them. (You might recognize Rusty from the Red Bandanna calendar, which is in stores now, or available for purchase here – all proceeds go to the Red Bandanna Angel Fund and Friends of Dekalb Animals!)

For the holidays, their mom had lovely bows for them to wear, and Cricket and Nelson happily smiled into the camera for us:

Rusty, however, had something else in mind!

He definitely has the widest range of facial expressions:

While Cricket has masted the “Diva in Profile” pose:

I love the wrinkles!!!
