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.
Great Hampstead Bark Off 2019
To benefit All Dogs Matter
Being a professional dog photographer in Hampstead means that attending events like this are part of the job. How cool is that? I got to spend my bank holiday Sunday meeting and taking pictures of so many fabulous dogs and chatting with their owners. As you’ll see in this gallery, Parliament Hill was teeming with dogs of all shapes and sizes.
This event was in support of All Dogs Matter, a London based dog charity that rescues and re-homes dogs, reunites dogs with their owners and delivers educational visits in the community. It was such a pleasure to meet so many dogs that were re-homed through this fantastic organisation. Have a look at their website, especially if you’re looking to adopt a dog - https://alldogsmatter.co.uk/.
