Morning Dog Walk: 3 Pictures Say 3 Thousand Words

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestmail

As the old saying goes; “A picture says a thousand words”, well in this case, 3 pictures of Lupi tells a huge story. It’s been just over 6 weeks since we collected Lupi from the Kennel and although there is still a long road ahead, he is a very different dog to the shy and frightened boy we decided to give a life of freedom to.

Obviously, when we first collected him, there was no way he could be let off the lead, just look at the photos, this post needs no further text!

Morning Dog Walk: Lupi Is Settling In

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestmail

It’s been just over a week now and Lupi is starting to settle in. He just about realises that he isn’t going back to the Kennels and that this is his new home. We are having a few trust issues still and he’s found that he likes to chase Cats, but this is something we continue to work on.

Just in case you are wondering, in this photo he is on the lead, but I removed it in Photoshop. He’s not ready to be off the lead yet because we have no way of recall. So he walks on the lead until we are completely satisfied with his trust in us and of course, his hearing issues make it even more difficult.

Please also remember, I offer Dogs-In-Nature Photo Shoots for you and your greatest companions. Dogs-In-Nature Gift Vouchers are also available should you wish to give something different as a present!

Lupi’s 1st Portrait

It was the first “Wally & Lupi Morning Dog Walk” this morning, yes there were a lot of bird life around including the Bee-Eaters, Kingfishers and Golden Orioles, but today it was all about Lupi.

He is, of course, still very timid and doesn’t really understand why he’s not at the kennel anymore, but in time, I’m sure we’ll see a personality start developing. If it doesn’t, then it really doesn’t matter, Lupi can be whatever he wants to be.

He was sat on the river bank this morning taking in his new surroundings and I snapped this headshot of him. As you can see, he has very similar orange eyes to Wally!

So here is one of many photos you’ll see over the coming years of this special dog.

There Will Be No More “Wally Walks”…..

….but there will be “Wally & Lupi Walks”.

At the weekends Fair we spotted Lupi at the Lagos Canil (Lagos Dog Kennels) Stand and immediately both agreed that he’d be the perfect brother for Wally.

It’s going to take a while to settle him in as he is a little timid. He also is hard of hearing and possibly deaf but I have noticed that he reacts to a loud high-pitched whistle.

As you can see, Wally is so happy with his company. I look forward to bringing you some exciting stories of our morning walks.

Here they are in the back of the car on the way home today.

Morning Dog Walk: Today It’s All About Wally And Sort Of The Kingfishers

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestmail

I have been so busy the last week, either shooting Real Estate or stuck in my studio processing Real Estate photos. Last night we decided to head into the village for some well-earned beverages and Wally was looking really sad……..

….he’d clearly been missing his daddy. We came back last night and he was like my shadow, it kept nudging me to get under my arm for a cuddle.

So this morning we headed out to the river for a big splash about, I took some photos and today, I’m going to spend most of the day with him! The river level is dropping quickly and will soon dry out leaving large pools. It’s been an issue for my Kingfisher perch because every time I place it in location, before I get a chance to photograph them, the river is too shallow. This morning we wandered further upstream and have located a place I thought was perfect for the Kingfishers. The fish are considerably larger and the river will pool here, soon enough from behind an overhanging tree I heard a splash followed by the high-pitched call of a Kingfisher. I watched it fly away complete with a fish. 5 minutes later it (or another one) returned. So yet again, I will be relocating the perch in hope of some close-up shots.

Here is Wally splashing around enjoying life, as usual!

Don’t forget about my Dogs-In-Nature Photo Shoots capture your own best friend in stunning quality as above!
