Meet Oliver, the metro dog behind the soon-to-be-open daycare and boarding facility Metro Dogs. He is a terrier-poodle mix who started off as a shelter dog, but is now a skilled therapy dog with his pet parent Amy – a true success story! We recently had a session in Oliver’s favorite part of the city – the Stone Arch bridge and surrounding area. First up: the Guthrie. I love how the blue makes his buff coat “pop” and you can see Amy’s reflection watching him. :)
Oliver is absolutely brimming with personality – his little pink tongue cracks me up.
There may have been tasty treats involved…
One of my favorite parts about on-location sessions is going to places of significance for pets and their owners. Oliver loves to be held up by Amy to enjoy the breeze over the river – “better than 1000 car windows,” she says. Unfortunately, we were short on wind that night, but it was a fair trade-off for the dreamy sunlight.
Good luck to Amy and Oliver on the upcoming opening of Metro Dogs in downtown Minneapolis – check them out on Facebook! Visit them in person, too – you might recognize some of the artwork on the walls. :)
PS – I’m on Facebook, too!
