I'm Out of Here
I was attempting to photograph the entire litter of Bernese Mountain Puppies. Showgirl would have nothing to do with being in the wagon. So happy that I caught her in action!

    I just love this, Barb!! The red wagon with the black, white and patches of rust on the paws of these lovable puppies....I love it! This is as cute as can be! I'd say you have a winner!

(my eye could be just failing me here, Barb... Image seems like it could be improved with a slight rotation to the right...so wagon is level... my two sense)

Congratulations Barbara! This is just so cute! Is that your puppy escaping there? You really had a successful photo shoot with those little puppies, broken arm and all!

Thank you Kathy.

Well, if it wasn't for your suggestion I would have NEVER thought of using a wagon. I used a tripod with a remote switch to photograph this litter.

I couldn't have done it without the terrific breeder, Mark Mohapp and my daughter, Ellens' assistance. It was quite comical with the two of them piling the pups in the wagon and Showgirl (now named Stella) kept on jumping out.

The first time I photographed this litter they kept on peeing and pooping everywhere. One would do it and then it was a chain reaction. I went through a whole roll of paper! This time they were a little older and not as many accidents.

My puppy, Tess is the third on the left. She is the timid, shy puppy of the litter who is finally, with a lot of work, coming out of her shell.

Thank you everyone for your positive comments. This was the second time I ever attempted puppy photography. It was a truly fun, exhuasting experience. So much so that I fell head over heels in love with the pups, we now own one of them.

With warmest regards,
Barbara

Barbara, I fell in love with Bernese Mountain dogs as a young girl. I think they are the very cutest puppies around and they grow up to be such beautiful, intellegent and loving dogs. You are so lucky to be able to own one! What a fun experience to photograph an entire litter. I tried a photoshoot with a litter of puppies and 4 kids, I can feel the pain. LOL

My girlfriend has a Bernese Mt Dog by the name of Brinkley. I show her your site last night and she fell in love with these photos.
