Happy Friday. Must be time for your weekly dose of Yorkies in the Wild (I know it’s been a while). For this shoot Chewie was sandwiched between my camera and a picture of outside. That’s how we like to do the outdoors in these parts. Climate controlled and without insects.
We are super excited to release these photos today in our Etsy shop! Head on over and check them out. Favorite them, buy them, pin them, stare at them, etc. The holidays are quickly approaching, so keep in mind your fellow dog lovers out there. Over the next several weeks we will be releasing new Yorkies in the Wild prints each Friday.
Model | Chewbacca the Yorkie, age 6, 4.5 pounds

We’ve really been taking the time to enjoy our holidays and it’s been wonderful. One of the difficulties of having a blog is the pressure to be ‘current’ with posts, which means prepping stuff before it actually happens so you can read it on time. That’s way more stress than I need. Often I have a great post for you, but it’s on reflection, after some event is over. Today I’m saying, screw it.
We put together our Día de los Muertos altar for my father on the day of the holiday, November 1st. This a special day that people remember and celebrate the lives of loved ones who have died. I’m still enjoying it in the dining room, so even though the day has passed, I really want to share it with you.
Neither Dug nor Mini Dug had the opportunity to meet my father, since he died when I was a girl. This altar was a wonderful opportunity for them to get to know him, while I was able to celebrate his life and our relationship. This altar came together very quickly, so it probably missing many facets of Dennis, as well as some of the traditional elements like flags, marigolds and sugar skulls. But as I placed each new item on the shelf, I was able to tell my husband and son a different story about life with my father. It was an incredibly meaningful and wonderful experience for us all. I am so happy that they are getting to know him.
I am already looking forward to next year’s altar. Maybe it will even be photographed before…
Happy Monday. Let’s see what unexpected adventures this week brings. Put yourself out there into the world and let me know what comes back.
My Etsy shop is finally open! Hurrah! I’ve started with a series of 10 prints from one of my abandoned factory shoots and I’ll be adding more images and projects over the coming weeks. Wish me luck!
