Two fat boy pups nursing—

To View Large


I visited my breeder friend last night. I needed a puppy fix. There are just two pups in this litter of golden retrievers. And, oh are they FAT! Laurie (the breeder) says that while she is sad there were not more puppies, with only two, she can totally enjoy them. The pups enjoy it because they get all the milk they can drink! No competition!


All the extra food seems to have gone straight to their fat butts. They ARE broad!


They are still fast movers, making them challenging to photograph. Fortunately, they returned to mama every few minutes for a snack, becoming stationary targets.


With any luck, I will be going on a road trip to Cape Cod with Laurie on the 28th of June to get my own new pup(not one of these guys)— I am going to name him BokehBoy, and call him Bo(or Bobo, or any of the other countless derivitives). His mom is Flicker (no kidding on the mom's name!). I won't find out until June 20th if we are getting a puppy from the Flicker litter, but right now it looks really good! Excitement builds!


Strobist info– simple setup– single 580EX shot thru a 42inch optical white umbrella from camera right, about 3 ft high. Not the best set up for fast moving pups, but ok, when they settle in for a snack.
