2015—And They Called It Puppy Love
I can hear Paul Anka now, singing his anguished heart out. But Rosey, my friend Peggy’s pooch, has a different kind of “puppy love” for her stuffed reindeer. And, it is far from anguished…more like satisfied, I’d say. In this shot, she spent a moment caressing her “love,” making sure she licked off all of the peanut butter Peggy rubbed on the reindeer’s eye to keep Rosey’s attention fixed on one thing. It is so difficult to photograph a constantly moving target when you have no idea where they’ll move or what direction they’ll be facing. Once again, Rosey was another photographic challenge for me. This was one of a very few successful shots.
