I just received the preview of titles of the four calendars with my photos for 2010. I have to say I am very pleased with the result, both the dogs and the flowers titles are elegant, neat and eye catching. The rest of the calendars is not yet ready, there´s still time, after all.

Basenji on snow

Posted in Photography, The Dog Models Project with tags , , , , , , on January 26, 2009 by mirkawolf

This year, we had surprisingly lasting snow here in Brussels. I think it was a record – snow lasting even in the city for a week. Ponds frozen to the point that people could go ice-skate. And what I did? I chased people and their dogs around for getting photos of dogs on snow. And so here they are – little African dogs – on snow 🙂

Basenji are small, elegant-looking, short-haired dogs with erect ears and tightly curled tail. The basenji is an athletic dog and is deceptively powerful for its size. This breed does not slobber or drool, and very rarely pants (as dogs do). The Basenji has the unique properties of not barking (it makes a low, liquid ululation instead) and cleaning itself like a cat. The Basenji is alert, affectionate, energetic, and curious.  It loves to play and makes a great pet, as long as it is handled regularly from an early age and the owners are very patient. It can be reserved with strangers.

Australian Shepherds

Posted in Photography, The Dog Models Project with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 21, 2009 by mirkawolf

Today is the time to present dogs, that despite to their name, don´t come from Australia, but from United States of America. As the standard says: “Australian Shepherd is an intelligent working dog of strong herding and guarding instincts. He is a loyal companion and has the stamina to work all day.”

Translated into plain English, that means that if you don´t have a herd of sheep, agility course at hand or several hours daily to excersise your super active working dog, better don´t get one, even though he´s pretty 🙂
