I met Sue at the Big Day Out for Dogs in December and she was very keen to get her youngest Chocolate Labrador, Flynn, (the latest edition to her family) photographed to capture his personality while he is still young and in that full’o’beans puppy phase.
Flynn loves to greet Sue with her slippers, carry them about the house and steal the socks. I know all about that one Sue! He loves the walks in the park, swimming and activities with Sue and her other dog Karla.
Sue flew Flynn down from NSW at just 8 weeks of age. She tells me that as a puppy he was so fat he could hardly walk and had so many wrinkles he could have been mistaken for a sharpie! He has just recently turned 1 and is growing into a very confident boy, a typical lab, body growing before brain, however he is very quick to learn, so much so that Sue has trouble keeping up.
Sue is currently training him in Obedience competitions and agility which he loves. I was surprised to see how well trained, focussed and attentive he was with Sue at our photo session especially at such a young age. This made all the difference during our shoot and made my job very easy! It’s obviously thanks to the extra time Sue has invested in him with obedience and agility training.
I currently have a set of Flynn’s images entered into the PDN Faces photographic competition and would love to receive your votes here.
