Pets and other animals

Meet: Otis

I am definitely looking forward to sharing some photos with you today. I really love snapping pictures of my own pets (and Lucia is pretty much a trained model at this point…she sees the camera and knows what to do, I swear), but I’ve been toying with the idea of snapping photos of others’ pets more regularly. Being around animals not only makes me happy, but I love seeing how different their personalities are. And spending some quality time with them, of course!

Last week, a friend of mine was kind enough to let me stop by her home to snap a few pictures of her furbaby for some more practice with pets that are not my own and have never met me before. Meet: Otis.

Isn’t he just a gorgeous little guy? I love his coloring. Otis is a dachshund beagle mix, and has personality bursting from the seams. Isn’t it funny how such big personalities can come from such small creatures?

He definitely has a penchant for playing sticks strewn throughout the yard. Who could blame him?

Although (to me) he looks a lot like a dachshund, when Otis tips his head back to give a little howl there is no mistaking the part of him that is a beagle!

And of course, it should go without saying that Otis loves treats. Although, getting them out of a canister can prove to be tricky. I think he was suspicious as to why his mommy would leave an open dog treat container on the ground for him to enjoy!

Ok, one funny outtake for good measure. I can’t help myself. Thank you to Otis for being such a great dog model.

So, what do you think? Isn’t Otis such a cute pup?
