Bandit & J.D.

Bandit and J.D. are such an awesome duo. These boys complement each other perfectly – Bandit is the epitome of chill, always lounging around, and J.D. is the life of the party who’s always ready for a game of fetch. A few times each day, their moods align and they’ll play a friendly game of chase or tug. Bandit runs like a bunny, and J.D. has the best. ears. ever.

Bandit is a Cavalier King Charles spaniel/Dachshund mix, but J.D.’s ancestry is a true mystery. (J.D. stands for Just Dog.) Can you believe they’re eleven and ten years old?!

J.D. has the most soulful eyes.

Bandit’s signature pose:


Last Wednesday was National Puppy Day, which must have added some good mojo to our session because it was perfect! Not only is Dolly the cutest little fluffball, we had gorgeous weather too. Dolly was 12 weeks old last week, and is 100% puppy – rambunctious and adventurous, but also adorably clumsy.

It’s pretty difficult to not be cute as a Golden Retriever puppy, but Dolly really outdid herself. I could have photographed her all day long!


Coco, Winston, & Lacie Gracie

These three make quite the pack! Coco and Winston are five-year-old littermates who actually look nothing alike – Coco got mostly the chihuahua genes while Winston got the terrier genes, and Lacie Gracie is 50 pounds but thinks she’s a 15-pound lap dog like her siblings. (She is not one of their littermates, ha!)

Lacie is the baby of the family, nearly a year old, so she has boundless energy and loves to play and run. She is extremely gentle and sweet and loves everyone (person or dog!) she meets, especially if they have a toy to share. Winston is a scruffalicious lovebug who just wants to be wherever you are, checking things out. Coco is the smallest, so of course she is the boss of the house. She loves treats and cuddles in equal measure!
