Polo is 5

Polo is 5

Personal

Polo turned five years old last week. We missed his birthday since we were out of town, but we made sure to spoil him {rotten} when we returned. Even as a puppy, our dog had the appearance of an old soul, so it’s common to call him Gramps. This morning I photographed him and the following photo proves Polo is ready for the retirement home. I worry his modeling days are over.

    I LOVE that tshirt he’s wearing! So cute. I think the old soul thing may be a Maltese thing, because my Maltese, Maisy is like that too!

    He may be slowing down a bit, but he’s still just as cute as ever. And who says there isn’t room for elderly in modeling? 😉

    Polo is a beatiful dog and he is very lucky to have you as his owner (he looks a bit like a Santa with all the fur).
    I hope he had a beatiful birthday, cheers!

  18. Katie -

    Oh my gosh – this is ADORABLE! I wish I could get my Boothoms to yawn for the camera. He just smirks… is it just me or are dogs camera hogs? 🙂 Happy Birthday Polo!

  75. Mikkel -

    I don’t know how you’ve kept his beard white for so long. Usually white dogs’ beards get stained brown with time. AMAZING! I think he’s still in for modeling!

    Aww Happy Birthday Polo! My little Riley Mae love of my life (she’s a miniature pinscher) will be turning 5 in February and her little face is turning grey which is both cute and makes me realize how fast time is passing all at once. Polo still looks young at heart!

  79. Toby Cummings -

    Your dog is so cute. You must have so many photo shoot ideas rolling around in your head for Polo photography setups. 😉

      1.20.11 - 2:19 am

  80. diane (www.sagephoto.com) -

    Jas, you need to explain how many photos it took to get this, how long he sat for it and how you got him to sit for it. Please share the experience with all of us!

      1.20.11 - 2:27 am

  81. Jenna Danelle -

    Such a sweetie – My dog is a great subject – but he doesn’t do clothes… He’d lick me to death before I could get a paw in!

      1.20.11 - 8:38 pm

  82. Kevin -

    Polo clearly needs his own website. Never seen such a photogenic dog with such a great personality!

      1.22.11 - 11:58 pm
