We try and get a daily walk in, taking different routes around the neighbourhood and Bohdi has responded well but is still learning how to act around other dogs. He is not aggressive but does not really know his own strength and the play biting behaviour might be mistaken as aggression by someone that did not know better.
One of the upsides is when the light and the weather are good there are always opportunities to make some images but holding still is not one of Bohdi’s skills yet, so they tend to be things we encounter along the way.
Let’s face it. Not much photography taking place right now so all I have to share is dog news.
Progress is good. Scars are healing and we have enlisted the help of trainer to iron out the behavior issues. We are able to let him off lead in the yard but can’t leave him alone for long. Things that can get chewed have been moved out of reach.
Chew toys don’t last long around here and this one is less than a day old and already missing a tail. Documenting their destruction might make an interesting project.
Never met a dog that didn’t want to chew on something. We figured he needed to catch up on lost puppy time, so play is becoming an important part of the new routine.
It’s easiest to photograph him when he’s asleep. Lenses don’t get licked that way…
Rescue dogs have a range of issues to resolve and needs to be met and it will take a while for that to happen so the focus has been on working out how to make this work. Everything else gets back seat for the time being so apologies if the posts are a little lower in quality and frequency (and for all the dog photos).
I did have time for one folio. Tim Walker is a portriatist who makes his own rules
