Samson and Griz :: Tubbs Hill

Meet Samson and Griz.

Samson is a two year old West Highland White Terrier, and Griz is his new baby brother (a mutt) at just 11 weeks old!

I met up with them and their parents in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho at the popular Tubbs Hill near Lake Coeur d’Alene.  These two little guys had a ball, running around the trails and rocks, making us (mom and dad included) all really work for the perfect shot!  They were quite the pair.




Samson has been known to be quite the little ballerina…


Marjorie, Samson and Griz’s mom, chose Tubbs Hill because it was Samson’s favorite place to run and play – he has quite the adventurous spirit!



And then there is Griz, he loved following his older brother around, but most often you would find him staying very close to his mom and dad.  He would always stop when he thought he was too far, and look back to make sure his people were right behind him.  Such a sweet heart!



Flying puppies!


These next two shots are a little different then the norm – they just sort of struck me in a way that I couldn’t discard them.



Marjorie and Gabriel, thanks so much for inviting me!  I hope you like the results 🙂

Daisy: Revisited

You might remember this face from 6 months ago, the sweet Daisy girl.

Now that it’s summer time, Daisy and I decided to have an adventure outside, and boy was she a riot!

That girl is one big ball of energy!


She loved that ball of hers, no matter how deflated it may have been 🙂






Look at this goof ball!


Did I mention that she was full of energy?!





Needless to say, Daisy and I had a great time!


Happy Sunshine everyone!
