In my repertoire of strange noises to attract a dogs attention, I now have a crying baby. Yes, a crying baby.

Winston the French Bulldog doesn’t respond to your usual cutesy noises or names that often work with getting their attention, he wants small humans. Fresh ones.

Had I known of his considerable interest in small people I might have avoided using the home of several children as a location! As you can probably guess, he was on the lookout for them, and if he couldn’t see them he was searching them out with his face firmly pressed to the window. Naturally, a middle aged pet photographer wasn’t going to be of much interest to him!

When he could no longer hear or smell the little people, his interest in the little people finally waned and Winston started to co-operate a little more. That said, I’m not sure having his photo is top of his to-do list – his Saturday mornings are definitely for brunch and being social!

I’ve only ever crashed a party uninvited once before. It was when I was living in London and my flatmates and I were enjoying a few snifters on a Saturday evening on the third floor of our building. As the evening wore on, we spied a house party across the street in the opposite building. It was almost an invitation. Almost.

So, drinks in hand we wandered across the road and made our entrance to a rather cosy flat that was rammed with people we didn’t know. We had a few chats with random guests, clinked glasses with some others, grinned like idiots at each other and then went home. At the time, it seemed like the funniest thing in the world.

Now, I don’t get many crashers on my shoots, but occasionally you get a random passing dog who just steals the show and stands between the camera and the dog I’m supposed to be photographing.
Bandit was THAT dog! It was during a shoot with Abby & MacKenzie at the Sandringham dog beach and Bandit took a fancy to the squeaky toy belonging to Abby, a Border Collie and MacKenzie, a Golden Retriever.

Fortunately we had shot most of what we needed so Bandit’s interruption wasn’t a problem – it was more like the entertainment had arrived! Handsome entertainment at that!

Now, I’m keen to track down Bandit’s owners so I can send them a photo or two – they might as well enjoy them rather than them sitting on the Pupparazzi hard drive! Can you help? Do you recognise this handsome hound? If so, please CONTACT ME or leave a comment on the facebook page.

If you’ve met me, you might know how much I love loving in the Bayside area of Melbourne. By ‘area of’, I mean not in Bayside. Just close enough to the sea that the houses aren’t astronomically priced. Cheltenham is a functional, rather than ‘sexy’ suburb but it suits my needs, and seems to suits my clients too as I don’t have to charge the insane prices that some pet photographers in Melbourne currently do!

The area as a whole is great for pet photography with numerous locations overloaded with plenty of greenery, trees, beaches and even some colourful urban type backgrounds if you know where to look. If you’d like some suggestions for great locations for pet photos in the area then please feel free to get in touch with me.

Anyway, this post isn’t about me, it’s about a young at heart pooch who stopped counting her years after the age of two. Talk about having some energy!
Phoebe is new to the bayside suburb of Sandringham so it was a pleasure to be able to introduce her (and her human companion, Helene) to the Sandringham dog beach and surrounding locations which are good for a run around as well as photos. I hope you like them!
