Dog Photography with the universal 'toy' a wooden stick

August 04, 2017  •  9 Comments

This week's word for our Pet Photography blog is "Wood".  I asked several different people what comes to mind when you think "Pets" (or more specifically dogs) and "Wood".  For me, the most obvious response was a deck, boat dock or perhaps a fence.  To my surprise, the first word they thought of was "stick".  I should have thought of it!  Our dog Abby is often finding sticks on our walks and bless her heart, she picks them up and carries them all the way home.  Sometimes that distance is a good block or two, but she will stop if she needs to adjust the stick - otherwise, she continues on carrying her stick.  Here's a photograph of Abby chewing on one of her favorites (free) toys, a stick.

Our next guest dog has crossed over the rainbow, but still remains very dear to many of us.  Hayden was one of those special dogs that becomes a soul mate with his owner.  Always there when you need him and just a great companion and dog his entire life.  Although he was not my dog, I still miss him and I'm very happy that I captured him and some of his personality in photographs.  Hayden loved to play with sticks and in the water - so here's our special guest having fun running from the shoreline of the river with a rather long wood stick!

A short pause to check what he is hearing (his ear is twitched back). My all time favorite of Hayden - this one reminds me of the "Here's looking at you kid" expression.

For those of you that love your pets and treat them as a part of the family - make sure you capture those special moments as one day, they will be your treasure to remember you friend.  For more 'wood' photographs head over to visit Terri J Photography capturing photos of your pets in and around Toronto, celebrating the joy and love between Pittsburgh pets and their people.  and then head around the rest of the blog circle until you end up back here.

Great idea for this week's topic! Great images .....I'm not sure I ever saw my dog with a stick - haha! Beautiful images and great memories captured of Hayden. Love Abby's expression with the stick - nice job!!!
Yes, we have a few dogs from that famous breed of "stick dogs." I don't think it's recognized by the AKC yet. :) Great idea!
The second and third image have me cracking up! You have such personality in those shots.
Well, I must own the only dog in the world that doesn't like sticks lol. But these images are great!And so lovely you captured them for his family. I'm sure they too cherish these.

Love that first image of Abby. It's so cute to see dogs carry stuff around that they are proud of. Too cute!
