The Babe 10-01-07

I have an absolutely wonderful dog, her name is Babe and we adopted her when she was a 9 week old puppy. We adopted her from a wonderful organization called The Animal Defense League. If you live in San Antonio and are looking for a dog or cat, I strongly recommend looking here! The ADL is the largest non-profit, no-kill shelter in the Southwest and I think thats a good thing. When you consider the fact that the San Antonio Animal Control euthanized 32,799 pets in 2006 while only adopting out 2,389 you can see how an operation like the ADL is needed and valuable.

Anyway, I’ll step off of my soapbox now. Babe has now gotten old enough and calm enough that she will sit for pictures without being exhausted! Previously one of my favorite techniques for photographing her was just to tire her out enough that she would lay down, which is pretty effective. However, it leads to her having her big tongue dangling out for every picture. The tongue wagging is cute for a few shots but you can’t have them ALL that way! This time however we had a major breakthrough, I got her to sit for some photos involving lights, umbrellas, reflectors, the whole works. The trick was simple…small pieces of hot dogs. Babe will do just about anything for food! Some of her “head shots” are below.
