These two great white Samoyeds are plenty ready for all this snow and cold temperatures! Cody is the older guy at 13.5 years old. He still gets around like a trooper. The younger one is Meika at 5 years old - still full of spunk!
About Mid-October I had a photo shoot to capture some candid moments of these two. I had a really good time trying to get some nice images. At one point Meika had decided the squirrels needed to be chased around the yard while Cody just stood by and watched. It was a lot of back forth between posing for the camera and off chasing the critters.
In the end I did manage to take quite a number of nice shots of both of them.
What else has been happening -
I have been attending various Artisan and craft Fairs these past few weeks. I have to say, a really slow start. The first event had about 20 people come through. I think the organizer thought just social media advertising would bring the people in. Unfortunately - people in the area did not know the Pet Expo was even happening. It was good practice at least. The second one was Barksgiving at Chestnut Ridge in Orchard Park, NY. That was going well until the wind. My tent did not blow away, thanks to the weights keeping it grounded. I ran into my side walls billowing in and out with such force to knock my small table over - not once but 1/2 a dozen times. I got frustrated and packed up. Next year I am budgeting in a new tent with properly attached side walls. The next day after Barksgiving, I went to an indoor show. Yeh, nice and warm...but not very well attended. Tomorrow I get ready for the last one on my list. Saturday in Elma, NY. Hope this one goes better. I got a few more sample pieces to display, too.
Don't forget - November 23 at Happy Paws in Derby, NY I will be doing Christmas themed photos - some spots still left.
