Albert is a little rescue terrier type….he and he owner, who is a woodworker, are inseparable already…he is utterly charming, incredibly well behaved, and whoever dumped him, (as he was,) in the first place is missing out on one gorgeous boy..

I am seriously considering starting a small dog portrait ‘thing’…I am having such a good time photographing friends dogs, and meeting them all.
Sundays afternoons only to start with as I work such long hours in the week..what does anyone think? If anyone tell me the pros and cons please B’mail me!! xx

    ooh he’s a beauty and you’ve made him look so charming.
    If you can spare your valued free time then I’d say go for it Polly. I’ve a lady who lives a few doors down from me who takes in rescue dogs for a few weeks at a time, trains them enough to be rehoused and she has the most gorgeous dalmation, but I feel I don’t know her well enough (as she’s nearly always at the rescue centre working) to ask her if I can photograph the lovely pooches she walks past my door most mornings.Besides I’m normally having a manic moment trying to get the kids ready for school!
    I say go for it and enjoy xx

  • Seriously considering it….film business hours are for slightly younger people , like I used to be…need to start thinking of alternatives I think….not ready to give up stardom JUST yet, but good to build up something else I reckon..

    He is gorgeous Polly and sometimes you gotta wonder how people throw away so easily such a wonderful could be friend! Your work and textures are excellent as always! And my vote is a YES, you should do doggy friend portraits! Youre really good at it and you would make plenty and could quit your time consuming job you have now! Good luck with your decision!

  • Thank Tina!! If I start slow then I can always build it up if it goes well..might not get any customers for ages!! Or take rubbish pictures!! I will keep you posted..thanks for the thumbs up and the encouragement!!
    Hugs,

    I agree Polly, you could do some great books too of all kinds of animals, can never understand people being cruel to them. Say hi to Albert from all of us :)))

  • LOL!! Will do Margaret…he would kiss the back of your hand in an old fashioned way I think, he is that charming!
