To Puppy, or not to Puppy

Since the day that I married my husband I knew that at some point in my life I was going to have to have a dog.  Before we had Beau, it seemed like a great idea.  We even went puppy-hunting at one point, driving out to the Inland Empire to see the largest dog I have ever seen in my whole life: a 250 pound English Mastiff.

In the end, we decided to have babies rather than puppies.  Well... one baby.

Then we sold our house and went back to living the life of renters, renting in homes that did not allow dogs.  Puppy talk was tabled.

One of the first things that my husband mentioned when we toured our new home for the first time was what a perfect space it would be for our dog.  Oi-vey.

So now we are back to talking about puppies.  I know it is my inevitable fate.  But I am not going to do puppy and baby at the same time, so for now {for now}, Nathan is being patient.

Then my dear friend Sylvaine sent me a link to her husband's new venture: Dogma Pet Portraits.

These faces just might get Nathan's dog home sooner than later.

You may remember me mentioning David before because he is the amazing photographer that shot my current line.  I love David.  I think he is an incredibly talented man.  He captures the most beautifully natural images.  I know that those of you with furry members of your families will be thrilled that he has opened up his business to the canine species.

David's studio is located in Costa Mesa.  If you are in the area, give Sylvaine a call {714.642.9021} and schedule an appointment.  You won't be sorry.


  1. I love the photos and boy do I love my Miniature Schnauzer! Can't wait to hear what kind of dog you choose! :)

  2. LOVE those pics! Our french bulldog Walter is a staple in our family and we couldn't imagine life without him. Our two kids fell in love with him the minute they came home from Ethiopia and he loves them right back.

  3. What great doggie portraits, too bad I'm not in there area. I have 4, yes four, furry friends and I couldn't imagine life without them!
