From Nicki: “Pepper is a seven-year-old Westie. She loves to let us know when anyone is walking in the neighborhood or if there is a squirrel in the backyard. She loves going on walks and saying hi to the other neighborhood dogs. Pepper also loves to sit in our chair, right next to me.
Axyl is a three-year-old mixed breed. He is part Lab and part Mastiff. Axyl is mostly laid back but has learned how to spot walkers and squirrels, thanks to his sister. He can be a bit scary at first but has never met a stranger. The UPS and FedEx folks are getting to know him, but I still go out to make sure they know his name and that he’s very friendly. He is a rescue, but not from an organization. He was born to a family who could not keep him, and we asked to be considered. We adopted him after our first lab/mastiff mix, Cooper, passed from cancer. Ax is large, goofy, and as sweet as he can be!”

Those two seem very different but seem to have great personalities. They are cute together and a nice couple for a family.
Amber Myers says
I love photos like this. When we do another family photo, I’d love to include the cats and guinea pigs in at least one, but I imagine it would be tough, ha. But amusing!
Eileen M Loya says
The photos turned out great. The dogs are very well behaved and they seemed to “pose” for the camera. Nice choice of location for the photoshoot too.

Hey, that’s near where I am from! Axyl looks like a reliable and good dog. We have had two westies and we adore them.
It was wonderful to learn more about this dog, Ax looks like such a lovable fur baby.

It’s a great setting for family (including dogs) images. The picture of Axyl on his own is my favourite. He’s so cute!
I love seeing family photos. What a great place to get them done too. I always love it when the animals are in the photos too because they’re family as well.
Monica Simpson says
These turned out beautiful. I would love to have our dog in our next family photo shoot.

What a great family photoshoot. It’s nice to see a pair of furry siblings together with the rest of the family. Beautiful shots and memories captured for the lifetime.
