Basset Hound

Obi-Wan Kenobi and Rhett Butler

You may have seen me gushing over these two on Facebook for the past week but did you know they are brothers?!? Well, not blood brothers, but live-in-the-same-house kind of brothers. Imagine these two handsome devils greeting you every morning when you wake up! That would certainly bring a smile to my face!Obi-Wan Kenobi is a Basset Hound with a look to die for! Seriously. Could you say no to this face?Rhett Butler is a French Mastiff, or Dogue de Bordeaux if you are fancy. ;) He is 150 pounds of wrinkles, slobber, and cuteness!We kept most of Rhett's drool under control but every now and then, a little bit couldn't help but slip out. It's totally part of his charm!Again - Obi-Wan with that "give-me-what-I-want" look. I love his splayed out feet...This is what happens when you ask brothers to pose together. Cracks me up!Now we got it!Just in case you didn't get it before, here's another magical Obi-Wan Kenobi look. May the Force be with him.Now that's a handsome goofball!Back in the woods, both Obi-Wan and Rhett took turns working it for the camera...Poor Rhett is dealing with a heart condition that makes him a little on the slower side. However, he knew his mom really wanted a running shot so he turned it on for us! This is the tame version...And a crazy outtake.! Hehehe!As opposite as these boys could be, they were equally fun to work with (as well as their parents)! I can't wait to see them again and bring some more drool home with me! ;)

Cliff, Molly & Linus - Basset Besties

Eeeeek! I've been having so much fun editing this session and I'm so excited to share a sneak peek! Cliff, Molly and Linus (shown below from left to right) are your typical Basset clan but with some fun and unique personalities! They had me (and some on-lookers) giggling the entire session and they impressed me with their fabulous modeling!

These three typically spend most days at doggy daycare doing what they love most - lounging around and sniffing hound-style. When they get home in the evening, they are ready for the most important thing...sleep! Haha! The day of our photo shoot was no different. They were pretty tired after daycare which made them very cooperative subjects. How else can you get three dogs to pose for the camera at the same time?

Miss Molly is the youngest of the pack at only 8 months old. She still has her baby puppy-dog face and it just kills me! :)Cliff, who is named after the Cheers character, was probably my favorite (am I allowed to say that?). If he was a person, I could totally see him going into a bar like Cheers, grabbing a beer and telling jokes. He is such a funny boy! Can't you tell?!?Last but not least, there is Linus. He is ALL Basset with his nose to the ground and some huge, floppy, adorable ears! Such a cutie-pie!Don't you just love their little stubby legs and paws?Um, does anyone have a napkin for Cliff?It was such a pleasure watching these guys do what they do as they explored the park. Near the end of the session, the sun popped out over the lake. The pups were more than happy to pose in front of the warm, sparkly light.And Molly was ready for a puppy nap...The end! :)
