Tyson’s a sweet young pit mix, not yet 2 years old. We met out at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve – a spot I’d been wanting to have a session, but hadn’t yet (note to self: tall grass = chiggers… and chigger bites if you’re an idiot and don’t take precautions). After several minutes of taste-testing the various grasses available, Tyson was ready for his photo shoot. A natural model, that boy. His mom’s been working hard with him, and their work is definitely paying off.
I always think “sock puppet” when the bullies tip their heads back and smile their jumbo smiles (see left below).
The boy’s got some moves.
That green frog appears in a lot of photos — I had brought it with me but Tyson took a VERY strong liking to it. It’s by far the cheapest dog toy I’ve ever purchased – I only bought it because it has a good, loud, easy squeak. Tyson didn’t care – he carried it around the entire session (luckily, he killed the squeaker almost instantly).
How great is the heart patch right on his chest?!?!
