Their mom, Barbara, is a friend of Tucker’s humans. They won my Fur Ball photo session auction item in 2014. Barbara saw a beautiful canvas of Tucker on their wall and knew she needed to have professional pet photos taken of her pups.
When visiting her home for the pre-session consultation, I could see Barbara’s love for dogs starting with the 2 dog statues at the stairs leading to the front door. She had done an excellent job of having previous dogs photographed and has their images displayed on multiple walls in her home. She fosters often, however…..
Both Lacey and Archie are foster failures and follow in a long line of rescues. That’s what people have described when they are fostering a dog and then decide to adopt themselves. A few days ago I learned that Alice, rat terrier mix, who has been living with Lacey and Archie, also became a foster failure and now is staying in her forever home with Barbara, Lacey and Archie.
Lacey loves to have her belly rubbed and would easily roll over. You can see her poor foot that makes it harder to walk. Lacey had a malignant tumor on her foot in 2015, hence the two-toe amputation. Like all dogs, they work it out.
Archie was such a happy dog. Using the noisemakers and sounds I make, I could easily get Archie to tilt his head. Often it was a bit too much. I like this one with a slight tilt and a joyful expression.
My favorite of the two of them. I like this spot with the lake and colorful paddle boats in the background. Earlier in the year, the lavender was more profound as a backdrop.
Lacey likes to just lay in the water. Being it’s hard for her to walk, there was no romping in the water. She just took a stroll and then laid down.
