Sun Joy’s Back to the Future litter

Last Thursday I had the huge pleasure of photographing Sun Joy Portuguese Water Dogs’ latest litter, dubbed the “Back to the Future” litter (all the pups are named after characters in the movie, at least until they go to their permanent homes :)).  They are a futuristic litter because they were conceived using frozen semen from one of Bev’s champion dogs of the past, Guarda (AM CH /CAN CH Sun Joy’s Guarda O’Mar Alto CD TT), and one of Bev’s beautiful and sweet current females, Emily (Pennylane’s Jewel to Sun Joy), who is an incredible mama and who also happens to have BIG litters–ten in this one, again!  Five boys and five girls.  Here they are photographed at 3 weeks and 6 days.  It seemed to me that this litter was very socially precocious, so curious about me and my camera and willing to get right on in there and explore!  I can’t wait to see them again :).
