I was first introduced to Pichu and Tico last year. My friend Natalie and her husband Greg rescued Pichu last year. At the time, Pichu was expecting a litter of puppies. Tico and his adorable littermates arrived shortly after Pichu’s arrival. I wanted to adopt one so badly, but knew that there was no way we could have managed a second dog. I admire them for their commitment and patience. They went from having no pets to having a dog and 6 puppies. For those that know, puppies are A LOT of work. Newborn puppies or baby puppies as I like to call them are a ridiculous amount of work. The feedings, the cleaning, and whatnot are endless. Of course, it wasn’t without its rewards. If you ask either of them, I’m sure Natalie and Greg will tell you its one of their best experiences. Aside from keeping Pichu, they decided to keep Tico who was one of the larger puppies in the litter.
I was looking forward to this shoot because I was excited to see how both dogs were doing. Rob and I had seen them over the summer, but really wanted to see how much they’ve both grown. I wasn’t disappointed. I couldn’t have asked for better dog models. They were playful, yet very well-behaved. They sat patiently. They ran around. Each dog had their own distinct personality, which I tried to capture. Time flew by and I took 200+ photos. I am pleased with the photos I got. Here are my favorites.
