Forgotten Keepers

Every now and then I go through and purge “junk” images from my archives, and as I’m deleting the throw-away images, I always discover forgotten keepers like these shots of Suki.

Fuji X100 | 1/200 sec, f/2.8, ISO 200 Such a historic day for Suki, and as you can see, she’s quite happy about it. Today we granted her the most off-leash freedom she has ever had.

The Suki Wash

It’s been quite a while since Suki had her last bath, and today was the day. Do you think Suki has any idea what she’s in for at today’s pet store visit?  My guess is no! The Shiba Inu is a very fastidious and clean animal, so we don’t need to do this too often. […]
