Day 3: What I learned today…
One: I’ve learned to love the simplicity and character of a dog’s profile.
Two: Owners of prize-winning show dogs can be very obsessive. I don’t blame them really. Especially given how much time and money (tens of thousands of dollars in some cases) they have invested.
Three: How can dogs see with all that hair in their eyes? Quite easily, I’m told. The hair is mature’s strategic dust buster.
Four: Dogs that look alike aren’t necessarily from the same breed. Some of these dogs look so similar I’m starting to loose track of what I’ve shot and what I haven’t.
Five: It was comical how many times we overheard owners and handlers use the word “bitch”, which was incorporated into every sentence. Some examples: “How’s your bitch doing today?” “That’s a might fine bitch you have there.” “Which bitch are you showing today?” And my favorite, “Look, we’re teasing him with the bitch!”
Here are few of my favorites from today’s shoot. 100 down, 64 more to go.
