Happy Tails: Minnie the Toy Poodle

Small dogs generally have big personalities. This beauty, Minnie the Toy Poodle, is no exception.  These portraits by Photographic Forte, really shine some light on her personality. Minnie looks so sweet and peaceful, but in the later images, you can see she also rules the roost.

From photographer Shena Kaye:  “These portraits were captured with ambient lighting in the early morning.

Minnie is a 12-year-old  Toy French Poodle who weighs  10 pounds.  She was the smallest of the litter and is wholly devoted to Mrs. C.     The two became inseparable from the beginning.  Always together throughout the years.

What lovely photos! They certainly catch her personality and strong will. I love the way lighting highlights the texture in her fur.

    I wish every pet parent had photos like these of their pets!

Minnie sounds like quite a character! I love these photos of her, they’re really beautiful, kind of ethereal.

OMD, she’s adorable! Those ears! My family has always been a big or medium size dog family, but little dogs have more and more appeal to me as I get older. Want my next dog to be small enough to easily pick up! 🙂

    Beth says:

    After my older sister’s Labrador had arthritis and could no longer navigate stairs without assistance, my sister decided that all of her future dogs would be small enough for her to carry. I’ve always wanted a Newf, but I think I’ll have to stick with smaller dogs just for that reason.
