My challenge for Archer and Atlanta's photo shoot was their differences in age, energy levels and size. Archer is a 3-year-old Australian Shepherd and Atlanta is a 13-year-old Chihuahua. Archer is an agility star with boundless energy and Atlanta is more of a laid-back cuddler. They are both absolutely wonderful but in entirely different ways. And, although they are both super friendly, I'm told they aren't normally chummy with each other. As you can see, we got a photo of them together, in spite of all that! Honestly, it was probably because they are so skilled at a relaxed "sit-stay" and "down-stay." It's a good reminder I need to keep working on my own dog's manners. These two put my pup to shame!

Seriously, I think it's so cute how he holds his paws when he jumps! We took actions shots at a nearby park which was surprisingly empty for a Saturday evening. We didn't even see geese or bunnies. I think I may have found a new favorite location. Chihuahua-ColoradoChihuahua-ColoradoChihuahua on yellow chair

We also took lots of photos of Atlanta at home since that's where she's most comfortable. I fell in love with her the first time she sat in my lap! I wanted to put her in my camera bag and bring her home.
