Connecticut animal photographer, Connecticut pet portraits
Those of you who know me well know that I have *always* been an animal person. I have never met a dog that I didn’t like, and give me ten minutes, and I’ll probably love him/her. So when Bev, the breeder whose work brought our two adorable pups into the world, revealed that one of her females was having a Valentine’s litter, I asked if I could come photograph the pups while they were REALLY young. OH MY GOODNESS. The pups are 3 weeks old in these photos, just starting to crawl around on their own, holding their noses up occasionally to sniff the wide world around them. They were each small enough to easily pick up off the ground with one hand. Mama Emily is a fantastic mother, and considering her litter included TEN puppies, it isn’t a small job!
Portuguese Water Dogs are a smart, sensitive, loving breed, and I can’t recommend Bev at Sunjoy Portuguese Water Dogs enough if you’re considering adding one to your family. She has been showing her dogs for many years and consistently breeding champions, which means that she takes great care to match dogs that are absolutely healthy, with excellent temperaments. For the 8 weeks they are with her before they find their “forever” homes, they are cared for around the clock and loved with great passion.
