I’m a reluctant winter weather fan: I love the snow, but not the bitter cold that we’ve had too much of this year. I am excited to share these gorgeous images by Sarah Liz from LinneaLiz Photography that let us enjoy the snow while staying warm!
From Sarah Liz: We live in Indianapolis and my husband went to Indiana University so it was only appropriate we name our first dog Hoosier. He is our 3 year old, 90 lb, Weimaraner, and we got him at the ripe age of 6 weeks just before we got engaged. I don’t think I slept for a year and I am still convinced he was worse than a human newborn. The personification continued as he sits upright on his bum, makes eye contact whenever he is called, has staring contests, and snores. I truly believe that the entire time he looks at me when I am talking to him he desperately desires to know what I am saying, and he is probably getting to the point where a lot of the time he just might. Once over the newborn stage he became a couch potato (unlike most Weimaraners) and loves to cuddle more than anything in the world. He is calm, sweet, caring, obedient, and loyal. He is our first baby and I am fully convinced will be the best dog we will ever own.
A year and a half in we get the itch to get another perfect dog…. and Haley arrives. Adorable puppy that she was, she is FAR from the sweet Hoosier we know and love. She is a bit smaller at 55lbs, but she is high maintenance, energetic, loud, and OCD. She could not be more opposite than Hoosier. She is our hunter and has brought birds, bunnies, and the like to our back door in hopes of high praise of her accomplishments. We usually scream and yell for her to release the innocent creature while here eyes drop to the floor in disappointment. BUT all in all, she gets us every time with her beautiful puppy eyes and she loves cuddling just as much as Hoosier. She plays with Hoosier for hours on end, and he likes to pretend he doesn’t love her, but when you catch her licking his face, ears, and nose you know he loves her just as much. At the end of the night when she finally calms down, the only spot for her to settle is right on top of him which happens to be on top of us, and that is where they are the most happy.
These dogs have made us happier than we had ever expected, they are a part of our family. Most people probably think we are crazy because I take them with me everywhere, we plan trips to include them, and refuse to leave them home alone for long periods of time. They are just dogs to most people, but not to us.”
