This is Eli, the sweetest little 14 week old Dachshund puppy I recently photographed. I was so lucky to be given the chance to observe and record one of his first ventures out into the world of Hampstead Heath after his vaccinations. I can only guess what it must have been like for him with all the smells and sounds and other dogs! He wasn’t at all frightened. Just curious and happy and brave. His owners said he was so exhausted when he got home, he had a two hour nap — I’d love to know what puppy dreams he had that afternoon! Welcome to the world little Eli.
