Big/Tiny/Same


Well I’m sure it’s obvious why I chose these two brindle puppy’s for my “big/tiny/same” subjects.
However, what’s not so obvious is what a challenge it was for me and one of my subjects to get these shots.

The picture above although not the greatest and a little out of focus…I will treasure forever… because that sweet little Dachshund is terrified of the camera. So much so I don’t believe I will ever be able to get another picture of my two brindle's together again.

In fact she was so scared she pee peed all over my chair :(


That ended the shoot immediately. Not because I cared she peed, but because I was not going to torment my sweet little girl…she broke my heart. :(
And it was a true miracle I was able to get these few shots. 

Incidentally that’s her name…Miracle. :)
I love her sweet face!

  2. Oh, how precious little Miracle is. I bet she got a treat after the photo shoot. Have you had her very long in your rescue?

    1. Miracle has been here for about 6 years. she was not always afraid of the camera. Just in the last few years she has just become scared of it. She is one of the easiest dogs in my pack. Here is her bio i wrote when she came in ...I keep one on all the dogs.

      (We found Miracle in the paper. This was the add: "Mini dachshund needs a new home ASAP !! she is also pregnant!! Bred to a shih-tzu kinda of a oops!! she is red brindle in color." Needless to say I had to call and rescue this baby. She was so underweight but had a belly at the same time. The woman only had her a few months, she said the reason she was getting rid of her was because she decided she didn't like little dogs anymore. Well I fell in love the minute I saw her. She literally jumped out of the woman's arms into mine. On the ride home she got sick and threw up a gross amount of other dogs clipped toe nails, the lady was a groomer so all I can figure is she was licking up the floor...YUCK! The woman had not vetted her so that's the first thing we did. Turned out she was not pregnant but had worms really bad. When I rescue a dog I always keep in mind this dog probable has some behavior problem that the people aren't disclosing for fear we will not take the dog. Not that I care because there is nothing I'm not willing to work through to get a dog whole. So I just kept waiting to find some issue ...like she isn't house broken or she has food aggression or some socialization problems...but nothing! She is housebroken, well trained and just an all around love bug.) Here is a link to a blog post I posted July 30th of last year that shows what Miracle looked like when she came to us. And you will see why we called her Miracle. :) http://goodlandranch.blogspot.com/2012/07/true-gratitude.html

  3. Oh, I love her! I wonder why she is so scared. She breaks my heart too. You can just see that she's sorry she peed :(. I'm so glad she is part of your pack and is in a safe, loving home. I forgot the pitty's name but how is her skin condition?

    Hugs,

  4. Oh my gosh, Miracle and Glory together! What a beautiful pair. The picture of the two of them together is "frame worthy."

    Hugs,
