The first time I saw this photo by Elke Vogelsang of Wieselblitz my heart skipped a few beats.  This incredibly handsome dog is one of Elke’s three dogs.  This photo is titled “Pirate of the Baltic Sea.”

From Elke:  “I got Ioli when he was 6 months old.  His eye was swollen due to an abscess when he was only a few weeks old and it never healed.  There was no other way than to remove the eyeball.  When the infected eye was removed he changed a bit a nature, become much more active and happier.  He is now a very happy and charming guy.  Ioli can be really cheeky and perky.  We love him to bits.”

I encourage you to check out Elke’s blog and Facebook pages, you won’t be disappointed!  I’m happy to say that I have more photos of Ioli to share with you soon!  Elke also has an Etsy shop.

About Wieselblitz:  Based in Hildeshiem, Germany, Elke photographs pets, portraits, and weddings.  She has 3 dogs of her own, Ioli, Noodles and Scout.

I hope you have a great weekend and enjoy these links!
