This was a VERY exciting session for us, since we have never photographed an Alaskan Malamute before! Well — that is, not a purebred Malamute! Our dog Jamie is part Alaskan Malamute and part Border Collie (with a few little extra breeds mixed-in here and there!) So, needless to say, it was such a treat to meet these THREE Malamutes, Dezi, Lucy and Amber!!
Dezi weighs-in at a whopping 120lbs, and Lucy around 95. They are brother and sister from the same litter of pups. When their mom first opened the door to let them out, all I saw was a HUGE white fluff-ball barreling towards me — my first thought was OMG! HE’S GIGANTIC! Next was, OMG — his face is precious!!! Next came Lucy. Not as gigantic as Dezi, but BIG nonetheless!!! These two greeted us as if they were ready to get the party started! So, we did!!! And what a party! We had a blast!
Then, just as we were about to pack up, we asked if Amber could come out for a few photos — Amber wasn’t originally scheduled to have her photos done, since she is a little scared around new people, and because she’s a little older and more frail than the other two, her mom thought it would be best not to subject her to all the activity. Well — she came out surprised all of us! She was not shy at all, AND she was bouncing around like a young pup!! She was ready to PLAY! I am so glad we were able to capture a few of Amber — she is, after all, 12 years old!!! Can you believe it? Look at her happy face!!
And, finally, one of all three….
