Coozie Howell {Nashville Dog Photographer}

Sweet Coozie recently had a mini session with me at Smith Park, one of my very favorite locations. Coozies full name is Coozie on the Spur, and she is a 2 year old Black Labrador Retriever.

Here are some fun facts about Coozie, from her pup parent, Therese:

How did you come up with the name for your pup?

We own a house on the Tennessee River, and the community is known as Peter's Landing. Our first Retriever was Bella of Peter's Landing, so we tried to come up with a name related to the river. I wanted to call her Tenn Lizzie, and she responded to the ZZZ sound in her name. But my husband came up with Coozie, since we use coozies at the river. The road our house is on is known as the Spur, so she became Coozie on the Spur!

What do your dog love most / like least?

Coozie loves food, treats, toys, and her family, and I think that is the order in which she loves them! She absolutely hates squirrels, and people walking by "her" property!

What's your favorite thing about her?

We love that Coozie is a "chill" lab - she's calm, and sometimes a little shy. And we like that she is smaller than most labs; she is fun-sized!

What do you love most about the breed?

Labrador Retrievers love people, dogs, food, and life! The breed is loyal, loving, and smart.

Hope you enjoy a few of my favorites of this sweet girl!

The Holland Family {Nashville Cat Photographer}

I’m so excited to have some sweet kitties on the blog today!

Meet the Holland family: Adam, Andrea, Aidan, Austin and their cats KitKat and Kisses.

Even though they aren’t sisters, both girls are about one and a half years old and were adopted together. Kisses is a domestic medium hair tabby and KitKat is a domestic short hair calico.

Andrea told me the boys named them. “Aidan chose KitKat before we went to pick her up, and Austin chose Kisses after we got home that afternoon. Their names fit their personalities well! Kisses is very affectionate. KitKat is Miss Independent and constantly getting into mischief. Kisses takes on the Momma role and is more timid. She can definitely be a “scaredy cat” at times.

They love to chase the little balls from the boys’ Nerf guns because they can easily fit in their mouths and bounce high. They also love to chase the laser pointer. They love laying outside on our screened porch. They love to pounce on each other and can get pretty rough. It’s hilarious to watch them, and they constantly keep us entertained!

We rescued them on December 1, 2017, from the Nashville Cat Rescue at Pet Supermarket in Cool Springs.”

Aidan is 13. He plays drums and is in a rock band called Donut Creme. He’s in 7th grade at Woodland Middle.

Austin is 10. He loves karate and is currently an orange belt. He has his green belt and will get his purple belt in April! He’s in 4th grade at Crockett Elementary.

Thanks for looking!

Harry Wilson {Nashville Dog Photographer}

Harry is a 13 year old mix of who knows just what exactly…..(mini schnauzer, terrier, Chinese crested…and the list could go on).

This handsome guy got his name from a book from the 50’s called Harry the Dirty Dog. It is about a mischievous little fella who gets into lots of trouble. A very fitting name for this pup.

He loves his hedgehog toy, sleeping in the bed with his people, and bird poop. He is not a fan of barbershop quartet singing, tuna, the mobile groomer, or his dad’s rancor star wars toy.

His mom, Kate, says that she loves the little twinkle in his eye most of all.

Harry was adopted from the Wilson County Animal Shelter. He actually crawled right into Kate’s purse as a tiny puppy... so of course she had to take him home.

When I asked Kate what she loved about all his mixed breeds she said: ‘Everything! I love ALL of them. Ha! I love his crazy hair (Chinese crested) to his sharp intelligence (terrier). He communicates. He has a sense of humor and he actually tries to tempt me with his toys. Right as I am about to grab his hedgehog he rips it away and runs down the hall. He definitely has a little devilish side (mini-schnauzer).’

Enjoy a few of my favorites from his session!
