Smiling, With His Eyes

Smiling, With His Eyes

Personal

Okay. Okay, okay, okay. I know there are many people who are over Polo’s cameos on my blog, but there has to be a little grace proffered. Besides being my best buddy in the world, he also happens to be adorable, sweet, and cuddly. And, dang, he sure can give one heck of a back rub. If JD wasn’t such a good kisser, we’d likely have to see a marriage therapist for this little love triangle I’ve created.

As I mentioned in yesterday’s blog post, Ann Hamilton invited Polo to San Francisco for a photo shoot in preparation of her WPPI Presentation. We had a blast and Polo worked it so ferociously Tyra Banks would be proud. And in case anyone is wondering, he TOTALLY smiled with his eyes.

Here are a few pictures from the shoot, but you can see more on her blog!

Many thanks to the blog readers and Facebook friends who invited me to dinner or proffered restaurant suggestions…oh, Internet, you rock my bright world! Unfortunately, I was only in San Francisco for a few hours, but the next time I’m in the Bay Area, I’d love to host a Starbox Lunch and meet new friends! 🙂

    I can’t remember how I came across your blog but I must say how absolutely stunning your photos are. You have such a talent and are so blessed to share it with the world. I hope that one day when I get married, I can have you fly out here to the good ol’ Midwest (Chicago!) to photograph my wedding. Just beyond words gorgeous. Keep sharing that wonderful gift. 🙂

    Polo’s fur is beautifully white, like a doggy angel! I love it. I bet you gave him the STAR treatment with a great bath before his photo shoot! 🙂

    The first words that came to my mind when I saw this were totally adorable, but since someone already used that description I would have to say utterly darling!

      1.15.09 - 9:30 am

  26. Tiffany -

    He is so darn cute how could anyone be over his cameos. I didn’t get a chance to comment on his bday photos but that picture of him smiling is PRICELESS. I heart Polo!

  32. Andy Rhee -

    I have to admit, Polo is awesome. How do you keep Polo so white and clean?! My dog (Chubby) is also a white fluffy dog but she investigates and sniffs every little thing during her walks. She comes back with a black dirty beard and brown paws. BTW, Polo has a great smile!

      1.15.09 - 12:55 pm

    Don’t ever apologize for posting about Polo! I could just eat him up he is so precious. I love all the photos, but especially the one where you are JD are holding him with his one paw just hanging over your arm…Just being casual, hangin’ out.

  56. Jane -

    Louie’s mama wants to know how you get Polo to stay still and look in the general direction of the camera. Louie prefers to face his rear to the camera. Every. single. time.
