It’s always fun to photograph Dachshunds. Their big ears and long bodies are so adorable, and I love it when you can see them stretched out to get the full effect of being a wiener dog. Both Ben & Betty Lou had some energy going for their session. Not to mention they were both very attached to their mama. It can be challenging when a pup is very attached to their parent, but it is all worth it when I hear their parent tell me how much the images show off their pup’s personalities. That is one of my favorite things about being a pet photographer, as well as getting to photograph puppies!
I loved having Ben & Betty Lou in the studio because it reminded me of how much energy puppies have in those little bodies. Abby, my golden, is now five, and she still has a ton of energy. But, after seeing these two, they put her to shame! I am definitely thankful Abby isn’t as crazy as she used to be, but I like the reminder of what it’s like to be a puppy. I also use the term “puppy” somewhat loosely… I believe dogs that are two or younger are still puppies!
