Happiness is….a Puppy!

If you follow me on Instagram, you are familiar with Beau, my adorable Brittany Spaniel. Beau will be 1 in November and he is just growing up so fast and not really a puppy anymore. He is sure a handful some days but your forget his naughtiness when you snuggle with him. He is really cuddly.  

Beau if full of energy and most days, in order for me to get work done, I need to take him on a good long hike or run.  After that, he will usually sleep the afternoon away.

I had to get photos for a campaign and decided to bring Beau along since he loves getting outside and he can’t get enough of swimming. He wasn’t too fond of having to sit in the canoe because he just wanted to jump in the water to swim.

These photos were just too cute not to share. They really aren’t for any special event and anything. We really didn’t even canoe much to be honest. It was a fun morning though.

Beau is not even a year old yet and very much a puppy. He is still learning to obey and gets distracted very easy. Birds and squirrels are irresistible to him. For him, cat kibble is like crack so I use that to grab his attention when I want to get photos of him. It works for now.   🙂  It also helps if he is tired.

If you like cute puppy photos, follow Beau on Instagram.  He needs to get his act together and post more, though.

This is just the cutest picture of Beau babe!!!  I need to get a print made of this one.

Thank you to my friend Ben Prescott for the wonderful photos!
