I love dogs. My husband and I have had three over the years and currently have a 12 year old Shepherd mix who is older than all my children. He loves them and they love him. He is a member of our family. Just as I think it's so important to capture photos of our "people" children as newborns and as they grow, it's also rewarding to capture our "furry" children like this as well.
This sweet family's daughter has wanted a dog for a long time. She loves the neighbor's dog, loves on friend's dogs, and has been dreaming of having her own someday. Her parents took her to visit a litter of adorable golden retriever puppies and surprised her by picking one out together. They named him Olaf and visited him weekly until he was able to leave his mom and come home with his new family. He'd been home about a week when I came over to capture this cutie and the little girl who now gets to hug him everyday.
And his new best friend...
Just to give you an idea of how much she couldn't wait to bring her puppy home, her mom put together a photo collage of the drawings she made as they were waiting for Olaf to get big enough to bring home. Mom was kind enough to let me share it here. If you can't tell, she was pretty excited!
So yeah, this guy really is this adorable.
It makes me smile how loved this guy is! As I write this post, I know Olaf is already bigger and starting to look older!
