Today, Kodachrome the Dog, my beloved 3 year old Japanese Spitz, got to go to the dog park for the first time for a play date with Mahina the Shiba Inu! Mahina’s parents Addison and Gina are fellow photographers, geeks, and Spitz-type lovers, so it was about time we hung out with our fuzzy babies. Herding Spitzes is like herding cats, but hopefully this will be the first of many times we get these “cousins” together to play and photograph.
As many of you know, Ed and I are blessed to have the most wonderful dog in the world – our 2 year old Japanese Spitz, Kodachrome. We often brag that her only downside is the excessive amounts of white fur that plague our house and wardrobes (wearing our photographer-blacks means lint rollers are kept everywhere!), because she stays very clean on her own, despite being a white dog. However, there are times when she manages to somehow get herself dirty enough to require a bath, and so it’s off to the laundry room sink for her! Here are photos from today’s bath time, and I hope they amuse you as much as they amuse me – my dog makes the best expressions!
