Meet Deja!

December 26, 2019  •  6 Comments

The Christmas holiday season is meant to be a very special time of the year.  Although it can be busy and hectic, this is when families and friends get together to reconnect and exchange gifts, enjoy home cooked meals, watch kids open presents under the Christmas tree and also to spread kindness and good cheer to people outside of our close knit circle.  Sadly there are those who do not find this time of year particularly joyful for many different reasons.  Since I was a little kid I have always loved Christmas time but last year was not the same, there was a palpable feeling of loss and emptiness.  Many of my clients and followers of this Blog are aware of the devastating loss of Lizzie in April of 2018, our cocker spaniel that succumbed to cancer.  Lizzie's presence is sorely missed and even with the passage of over a year I still feel the pain of her absence.  But life moves on...

 

In October 2019 I began to think about what I would be doing for the upcoming Christmas holidays.  I knew what I didn't want.  I didn't want it to be sad like the year before and thus began the initial thoughts of perhaps bringing another dog into the household.  Not as a replacement for Lizzie but as a new, energetic life force that would light a spark and reignite the joy and happiness that should be experienced at Christmas time.  On December 22nd, I welcomed an 8-week old Miniature Schnauzer puppy at home and she is such a blessing!  She is cute as a button, funny and sweet but because she is a puppy, she is also quite challenging!  I am excited to say that Christmas was so wonderful this year and most of the credit goes to that 3.6 pound bundle of fur.  So without further adieu, I'd like to introduce you to Deja!

Puppies can't help it but they sure do sleep a lot!

Ken/Nadine, it's great to hear from you! Thank you for your kind compliments. As if the holiday season wasn't hectic enough, adding a puppy to the mix can be a recipe for a perfect storm! Fortunately Deja has been an angel ...most of the time. I hope that your family and "Cookie" are doing well! Best wishes for a Happy New Year!

Oh Oscar, Deja is cute as a button! We are so happy that you were finally able to open your heart and home to a new dog. I am sure that she will inspire your photography in the days and months ahead. The pictures you took of our border collie are photos that we cherish because we know that we won't have her forever. Visitors to our home always admire the framed photos on the wall and can't believe you captured such great portraits of our high energy dog! Please know that the photos you made are priceless to us, especially since my wife and I are not good with a camera! We hope you and your family enjoy your new puppy and have a great New Year.

Hello Sharon, thank you for taking the time to comment here on my website. Deja certainly stole my heart but let me tell you, she is a puppy through and through so she can be a handful at times! She was very well behaved for her Christmas portrait and I am very happy to report that she is not bothered by the bright flash when I take her picture. Thanks again for writing and have a Happy New Year!

Deja is adorable! The Christmas photo of Deja is amazing! It looks so festive and fun yet it is humorous and has an element of mischief. Thank you for sharing your new puppy with us as well as your wonderful photography!

Happy New Year,
