This poodle is way more poised and prepared for Christmas than I’ll ever be. I guess I’m ok with that. β€οΈπŸΎπŸ’š #10daystochristmas #countdown . . #dogphotographer #poodlelove #commercialdogphotographer #lifewithdogs #animalphotographer #doglifestyle #yearofthedogs #christmasdogs
We had our largest #travelswithollie group hike on Saturday under beautiful sunny skies at George Washington's @mount_vernon estate! It was a little chilly but that meant all the dog sweaters were out in full force 🐢 (YESSSS!) β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € The hiking series started in January with the intention to take our amazing dog community offline –– A dog-friendly #optoutside if you will. Since then, we have organized monthly adventures for dog lovers all over the DC area. We explored local parks, the National Mall and climbed a mountain in Shenandoah NP. For photos and write-ups from each hike - check out our blog (link in bio). β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Thanks to everyone who joined us! See you in 2019! πŸ’™πŸΎπŸ’™ . . . . #dogphotographer #lifewithpets #commercialdogphotographer #wagmorebarkless #yearofthedogs #hikingwithdogs #dcdoghikes #travelswithollie #dcdogs #hikingwithdogsdc #dogsofdc #mountvernon #dogfriendlydc
I wanted to thank everyone who has reached out over the past few days with condolences, stories and love. Annie was a special girl (pictured here at her very first photo shoot with me in 2007) and we miss her very much. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € It's hard to find the words sometimes when you're in the middle of a loss. I find myself almost on a script with the usual "it was time...she was ready...at least now she's at peace" but the reality is that the feeling is deeper than that. I found this quote by Dean Koontz that I think so perfectly describes the love and loss of our dear pets: β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β€œDogs’ lives are short, too short, but you know that going in. You know the pain is coming, you’re going to lose a dog, and there’s going to be great anguish, so you live fully in the moment with her, never fail to share her joy or delight in her innocence, because you can’t support the illusion that a dog can be your lifelong companion. There’s such beauty in the hard honesty of that, in accepting and giving love while always aware that it comes with an unbearable price.” β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Much love to all of you. πŸ’™πŸΎπŸ’™
The end of an era πŸΎπŸ’”πŸΎ _ _ My husband and I adopted Annie in June of 2007 when she was about a year old. We had few details about her backstory other than she was dumped at a shelter in the middle of the night in rural Tennessee. When we adopted her, we had no idea what we were truly getting into or how she would challenge us in every way. _ _ With us, Annie was friendly, loving and playful. She made us laugh everyday with her ridiculous antics and strange ways. She could hold this position pictured above for hours––falling asleep with her butt in the air, ball in her mouth. She was obsessed with toys and would play ball until she puked. _ _ That said, life with Annie was difficult at times. Her past left some lasting fear and insecurity that she never fully got over. She suffered from separation anxiety, picked fights with just about every dog she met no matter their size and was never welcoming of visitors to our home. Those who took the time to get to know her, would be rewarded with best friend status for life though. _ _ Annie was diagnosed with a brain tumor this fall and we let her go last night. There's really nothing else to say other than she was the best dog, just like Murray (who we lost in July) was the best dog and your dog is the best dog. _ _ Life is always better with a dog by your side and I'm so grateful Annie picked us to be her humans. _ _ Rest easy my sweet, sassy girl – give Murray a squeeze for me. πŸ’™

It's #fridayintroductions time, here are 3 things you may not have known about me: β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € 1. #BlackFriday for me means hiking boots, fresh air and open trails. If I miss a good deal on something I probably don't need, so be it. #optoutside πŸΎπŸŒ²πŸ’š β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € 2. I 'm not a big decorator but I love making homemade sweets + gifts during the holiday season. I also love wrapping them up in pretty packages. #homemadeholidays β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € 3. Thanksgiving is coming up and I'm cooking this year! #help What are your favorite dishes? I love the stuffing, my bibb / fennel salad and chocolate cream pie (my grandfather's recipe). πŸ˜‹ . . . πŸ“Έ by @juliesocher #aboutme #dogphotographer #commercialphotography #optoutside #dcphotographer #dcdogphotographer #bio #bts #thanksgiving #behindthelens #hikingnerd

#AdoptMe | Meet Holly, Helix and Hazel: These sweet #jackrusselterriermix siblings came into the rescue together after being dumped out in the country to fend from themselves.

All three are available through @citydogsrescue β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Holly (1st pic) was found with a painful leg injury that never healed properly so the only humane thing to do was remove it. She seems to be embracing her new tripod status and will break you with those soulful eyes. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Helix (2nd pic) is a playful boy who absolutely loves his sisters. He would be happiest in a family with another dog he can roughhouse with and snuggle on. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Hazel (3rd pic) also loves playing with her siblings. At intake she kept sneaking kisses with Holly and rolling around on the sidewalk with Helix. She's a gorgeous girl who will make a fantastic companion. . . . #dogphotographer #lifewithpets #hannelelahti #jrtmix #commercialdogphotographer #lifewithdogs #dogphotography #petphotography #doglife #puppylove #wagmorebarkless #yearofthedog #adoptdontshop #adoptme #rescuedog #rescuedogs #dcdogs #dcrescuedogs #citydogsrescue #districtdogs #jackrussellmix
