The problem child and the regal one: Meredith Wilcke Photography Winter Park Florida Newborn Child Family and Pet Photographer

Meet the problem child and the regal one. AKA Gus and Gunner.
Their “mom” Meagan let me photograph them for a little experience in pup portraiture. She runs an awesome doggy day care and overnight care called Downtown Doggy Lake House. I was warned by Meagan that Gus is her problem dog that needs extra training and that I better lock up my cats. She also said Gunner would be eager to please and a great model. Well … she lied. Ha ha ha, I’m just kidding, Meagan.
It’s so funny how dogs can be one way at home and act completely different somewhere else. Gus was very interested in everything and loved to smell around. Gunner wanted to cuddle with me, but when I’d grab my camera, he acted like he was at the vet. He would hardly look at me. I put the camera down, and he’d put his face by my knee. Hilarious. Thinking it would help, I had Meagan and Gus go outside to chill for a bit while I tried to get Gunner to relax. I got him up on the ottoman covered in fake fur. WELL THEN HE DIDN’T WANT TO DO ANYTHING BUT NAP. It was like a pet bed for him. Stinker. Ha ha.
Gus. That “kid” is so funny. I took Meagan’s warning that he was, um, interested, in cats. So to get him to look at me, I meowed. He fell for it, hook, line and sinker. Meagan and I were laughing so hard. It was just precious.
So first off is Gus the cat lover and then Gunner the shy one. 🙂
