Things I Love | Dogs!

Jessica Velarde Photography

I love dogs! So much so that I have two of them.:)My babies are both named after Beatles’ songs – Penny Lane and Rocky Raccoon. Penny (left) is a 5 year old Dachshund/Lab mix (bizarre, I know. The lab was the mom, if you were trying to figure that one out.) and Rocky is a Dachshund/Chihuahua/Jack Russel Terrier mix who just turned 4. I got Penny as my graduation present to myself when I finished college (we always had dogs growing up, and I could barely survive four years without one.) I got Rocky about a year later when my co-worker came in with the cutest puppy that her dogs had “accidentally” created (although I think the dogs knew what they were doing) – and I knew he would be a great companion for Penny – which he is! They are best friends. Rocky has boundless energy and literally climbs trees – someday I’ll post a video. Penny loves food. And naps. 😉 And people. I adore them, they are my little family.

I love when people include their dogs in their weddings or engagement sessions. I’m pretty sure mine are too spazzy to participate in a wedding ceremony (the photo above was the only one that they semi cooperated on, haha) but I’d love to include them somehow in the photos. Here are some cuties that were included by their owners in the festivities.

Cute pictures :) We love dogs too. We have one dog but did have a second that we fostered for a while. He came to us as a stray. Our dog is a rescued dog as well. He was on doggy death row and someone was kind enough to foster him and then we found him. I’m so glad they did. He is so special to me.

Love the fluffy cutie pie in the bike and the one dozing on the couch! Too cute! I don’t know what I’d do without my pups! :)

i’m mad at myself for not including my pooch in our photos. and, i’ve never heard of a lab/dachshund mix!

Elizabeth {Bridal Musings} - October 2, 2011 - 9:23 pm

Awwwww this is such a sweet post. I LOVE dogs. Like Erin I wish we’d included our little pup Rufus in our wedding photos too {but he’s such a handful I’m sure I’d have ended up with muddy paw prints on my wedding dress!}
