James took these amazing photographs of Cody and Tala.
I told James I wanted some good shots of the pups for some new frames I bought. Allan and I are decent photographers, but more so of scenery than moving objects. Plus, our digital camera is not very good, and we've been too busy (and money is too tight) to deal with our better film camera. I knew James would oblige, but these are even better than I anticipated. Have a look.
The photos were taken on Victoria Day, when James and Lori and their puppy Cobalt were at our place. We were supposed to take all the dogs to Jack Darling Park, the huge leash-free park in Mississauga, but we couldn't get in! We're usually there on weekdays when there are maybe 10 cars in the whole parking lot. That Monday, the lot was filled to capacity, and the overflow lot was also completely full. That's one of the benefits to working weekends: we never see those crowds.
We ended up just barbecuing and hanging out in our backyard. Tala is very possessive of us around other dogs, and very territorial about her backyard. I'm a little concerned about folks bringing dogs to wmtc2 (I'll be in touch about that), and Cobalt was a bit of a guinea pig for the party. Tala wasn't aggressive - no teeth, no violence - but she was seriously dominant. As the day went on, she relaxed and the situation improved, which is a good sign.
I love these pictures!
