Man’s Best Friend

This week on the international pet photographer blog circle our theme is Man’s Best Friend and our mission is to show the bond between a grown man and his dog. For this theme I issued my first ever model call and got some amazing responses from guys who love their canine companions and weren’t shy to show the world!  I really only had time to do one session and had a tough time choosing just one man/dog couple.  All the applicants were worthy and you might be seeing them in the future.

There were two things that made The Chosen One stand out amongst the rest.  One was a photo of him on the floor snuggling with his sleeping dog under a blanket. Didn’t look entirely comfortable but adorable!  The other was a snippet of the email he sent:

Our strategy is to win based on the strength of “Mutual Adoration” between said man and dog, a love affair at times perceived by outsiders as worthy of hurling one’s lunch all over the carpet.

Sounded perfect!

Short of making you losing your lunch, I hope I have captured even a hint of the bond these two share. They absolutely adore each other.

LOL, I love his quote! Too funny. Nice shots. Boy a dobe can just penetrate you with the stare can’t they!

I love the dobe’s expression in the second one. He’s so tuned in!

You can definitely feel the love! These two look like besties – and very worthy of winning the shoot 🙂
