Barbet Cinna earns his AKC Therapy Dog Title

After 60+ therapy dog visits, including our training visits at the assistant living home, Cinna earned his THD (Therapy Dog) title with the AKC. His new official name is: CKC Ch. Cinna Di Barbochos Reiau Prouvenco CM THD CGC.

Since our therapy dog organization Love on a Leash offers a plethora of visit options, we had to painstakingly document each location which was well worth it! We are going to take a bit of a summer break (aka wedding photographer season begins for me this weekend) and get back to it this fall!

Our Beautiful Ginkgo K Barbet puppies born in America

I can’t begin to describe how enamored I am with our Ginkgo K Barbet puppies. They are 5 weeks old today. Time always passes too quickly when puppies are around. We have been having a grand time watching this pack experience the world. One even brought back a tiny ball today!

Here is a portrait I took of them a few days back. It is a dramatic lighting set up as I was testing studio lighting set ups. I love the highlights that wrap around the puppies showing their coat texture. k pups

Then here are their individual portraits…

A Barbet and a duck at sunrise

In early February I headed to New York City to partake in the Meet the Breeds at Westminster with the Barbet Club of America. Dena and Nick, the owners of Ginkgo de Isis Indigo (Indy) graciously let me stay with them and borrow their well mannered Barbet pup Indy for the show. Check out the Barbet Club of America’s facebook to see photos of that event.

Since Dena posts many gorgeous sunrise images on her instagram account: Pet Rivals,I knew there was a great photo opportunity to be had!

That morning, despite the -10 wind chill, Dena and I took Indy outside for some sunrise Barbet portraits.  A duck was loitering for bread crumbs and Indy went after the fowl. Even though Indy was going to be at the Meet the Breeds in a few hours, I was beyond excited to see her natural instinct at play. The resulting photos are some of my all time favorite Barbet images, too!

Indy is from our Summer 2015  CKC Ch. Treasures Biscay’s Sapphire RN x CKC CH Quaciendas Thunus Georgii “I” litter.

Left to right: Ivory (2015 summer Isis x George litter), Gaia (2014 fall Cleo x George litter), Cinna (from France), Allora (from the Netherlands), and Chester (Jupitor from J 2015 fall Carolina x Cinna litter).

It is very interesting to see the similarities as well as differences of them all. Thank you Susan for having us all visit!
