Jack Attack meetup

Personal

Emma and I went to a Jack Russell Terrier meetup today and had so much fun. There are pug and boxer and chihuahua and all sorts of other dog meetups so I’m surprised it took this long to get one together.

Today was their second get-together. They’re held at Mountain Lake Park in San Francisco at 4pm every other Saturday. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to make most of them due to a busy wedding season, but you can bet Emma and I will be there on my free days. If you have a Jack, or really any kind of dog, you should definitely show up next time. The people are so friendly and welcoming and so are the pooches (especially Bacon!).

Here are some of the sweet pups we met…

Sweet little Daisy was the first JRT there.

Freckles, Brulee, and Brownie had also shown up after a long walk.

Freckles is a people-dog and a recent adoptee. She’s a bit timid but not afraid to come around if you have a snack or two. And just check out her eyes!

Brulee is one of the sweetest dogs ever. He was just so personable and soft and adorable. He is apparently quite the cuddler too.

Poor Brownie had to deal with Emma. Emma is quite annoying at the park – soon after she shows up she’ll find a dog that will run and she’ll chase. Once the dog stops, she’ll bark incessantly at him til he gets up and goes again. The problem is that she just won’t keep quiet. Sooo annoying, but Brownie took it well and made sure to keep her in her place.

Bacon, an old man of a dog, was particularly friendly and I’ll leave it at that.

Chooley/Chew-li/Chuli was the spunky JRT whose owners organized the whole shindig. She was well trained and had quite an affinity for sticks.

This scruffy Jack mix (I think her name was Safari) was just a happy little thing with a long un-JRT like tail.

And cute little latecomer Spike was trembling a bit from all the newness and dogs but was really adorable. Just look at that face!

No offense to the others, but long haired jacks are definitely cuter. I mean, look at my dirty little thing. Totally filthy with a mouth like a sailor but the most lovable pooch in the whole wide world.

Thanks, guys! Emma certainly got her exercise – after falling asleep on the ride home she’ll probably remain sacked out til the next one. Can’t wait!

Free Photoshoot + DVD
Here's a deal for you…My grandmother in Scotland is very sick and probably won't be around much longer. I'll be flying out to see her this Sunday. When I get back I'll need to turn right around and fly to Connecticut to shoot a wedding on Halloween. This means I'll need to be away from my sweet pooch for about 2 weeks. I just hate to board her so I want to offer this awesome one-time deal: a Lindsay Docherty Photography Photoshoot plus a DVD of the images in exchange for looking after Emma for me while I'm away. This is an $875 value ($325 session fee + $550 DVD). Details on Emma: She's a 5 year old Jack Russell / Beagle mix. 16 lbs. S ...

The summer? Bah! That was nothing compared to what’s coming this fall. Hold on to your hats because there is a world of Lindsay Docherty Photography coming at you over the next few months. My mind is spinning and it’s hardly begun yet. This is my last totally wedding/engagement session - free weekend til December (yes, December!) so I’m taking a wee trip. I’ll be incommunicado til Wednesday because I’ll be paddling down the Delaware River for the next few days. “My, Lindsay, I had no idea you kayaked,” you say. Well, that’s because I haven’t. It will certainly be an adventure and will likely hurt. But I’m one tough cookie. I am und ...
