Since many of my sessions these past couple weeks have been for Valentine’s Day surprises, I can’t share them on the blog. Which probably works out for the better because I have been battling a mean and relentless sinus infection and there is nothing but ringing and static in my head so I wouldn’t have anything coherent to say anyway. In fact, I feel a little like Cole:

(Don’t worry, Cole is actually a very sweet — not to mention gorgeous! — kitty I met last year during a session for his big brother.)

Jack & Luke

Jack and Luke are lab mixes both adopted from the Atlanta Humane Society seven years apart. Jack is a (mini!) black lab mix who is now seven years old, and his little brother Luke, a chocolate lab mix, just joined the family two weeks ago and is only 16 weeks old! Usually in sessions like these, it’s the puppy who steals the show, but Jack was quite the camera ham and had such a myriad of expressions that every time I turned the camera to Luke, Jack would do something new that I had to capture.

Jack knows any real lab must be OBSESSED with tennis balls, so other than his mom and dad, this is truly his passion. Anytime there’s a tennis ball in the room it’s all he has eyes for, and if you try to hide it he’ll just sniff it out! He fetches, jumps, and even plays a quiet game of nudging it with his nose and rolling it across the floor or bed to you if there’s not enough room for fetching and jumping.

And as Jack: The Tennis Ball, Luke: His Big Brother (haha, bet you haven’t seen that since the SAT!) — little Luke is totally enamored of Jack and follows him everywhere. When I first walked in the door, Luke barely registered a visitor because he was too busy trying to get Jack to play with him. He’s always watching him, following his lead, and wanting to be near him. They are going to be great buddies…

Joni Solis - I just love the looks Jack gives! What a ham he is. So nice to see people not only adopt one but going for a second rescued dog!

Eli & Elvis

Eli and Elvis are very handsome six-month-old brothers who were found abandoned in a park when they were only nine weeks old. Luckily for them, they were found by Maddie and Abby‘s mom, so they now have a wonderful home where they’ll have everything they need and more. Sometimes I hear about how littermates taken into the same home can cause issues since they will bond to each other instead of the owner, but this is definitely not the case with these boys. They follow Lori around 24/7 and the main challenge of this session was getting them unglued from her!

But the hilarious thing – they follow her around together, and anytime she’s addressing them or giving them a treat, they squish together as close as they can and both look up at her with these big brown eyes. Who could have abandoned these faces?!

Eli is the on the left below, Elvis on the right (Eli is the redder one, Elvis has the widow’s peak):

Betsy - “Hey Elvis…do you think she’ll notice if we grab that steak off the counter?” “I don’t know Eli, but if she does, I’m going to give her my ‘it wasn’t me!’ look!”
