There are three types of dogs; dogs that prefer dogs, dogs that enjoy hoomans and dogs equally, and dogs that prefer their hoomans. Micky is definitely the latter, so much so that he must be sitting on, or at least touching a hooman at all times. As you can see in the photos, Micky melted into his mums arms. It is important to me to capture the character of the pets I photograph. And that’s why some of my favourite pics from this photoshoot are the ones of him being patted, with that heavenly look on his face.
Mickey is a typical wolfhound in that he is a calm, intelligent, dignified fella. Wolfhounds can be sensitive to changes in their environment, and especially so if they have had a bad experience in the past. The fact Mickey loves and trusts his hoomans so much is testament to his patient parents.
