White Cat

Cali - A Puga-what? A Pugapoo.

When I heard that Cali was a Pugapoo, one of the first things that *unfortunately* ran through my mind was the Destiny's Child song, Bugaboo. Yeah, that song is old and definitely not one of my favorites but I just can't get it out of my head when I say the word Pugapoo. I mean, who doesn't want to sing it and substitute in Pugapoo? Anyway, music aside, I was beyond thrilled to photograph my first Pug-Poodle mix! Cali certainly didn't disappoint! She quickly warmed up to me and the camera and I'm pretty sure we bonded over a couple treats and a fluffy dog toy. I think I have a new best friend for life!

We started her session in her back yard where she showed me some of her best modeling looks. Forget Zoolander's Blue Steel. Cali's "La Dent" (a.k.a. "The Tooth") takes the cake!

Cali was born missing a couple toes on her front paw. It doesn't bother her too much but she likes to keep it off the ground from time to time.Despite her minor handicap, she doesn't hesitate to chase her ball!I couldn't resist posting this one. I'm not sure what to call this look...Cali loves to swim so we took a short trip over to the lake access area in her neighborhood. This is one happy dog!And she's off to retrieve her ball!Who needs a hair dryer when you can hang your head out the window?Cali wanted to be sure we showed off her feline sister, Bella. Bella thinks she's a dog but is one of the prettiest cats I've seen!

Thanks so for such a great session, Cali! I can't wait to hang out with you and Bella again!
