The struggle is REAL. We'd actually travelled to the breeder to pick up Peggy's sister Agnes, an apricot parti. Well Agnes wanted nothing to do with us while Peggy smothered us in kisses and trotted at my heels.I'm not going to lie, I did not want to choose a black poodle because of how hard it is to photograph them. For each photo that turns out well, you get many duds. It can be a challenge, but I guess it makes the good photos that much more precious.
Before you call me anti-black, I will say that my wife and I lovingly care for our black cat Leroy.
I saw a photo of her on the breeder's website, when we were still planning to get her apricot sister, and I laughed so hard! Just these little glinting eyes peering out from flat blackness. I actually showed my husband and said "THIS is why we can't get a black poodle." I am an avid photo taker and loved photographing my dappled girl.Poor Peggy! They need a better camera. Black pets are so hard to photograph, but they are so beautiful.
What a sweet looking girl!Some white around the eyes makes them easier to photograph. Here's our beautiful Rue. She was solid black when my sister adopted her, and she started greying very young. The early picks of her look like a black streak--can't see her eyes.
Thank you ? I think it might be time to upgrade to a new iPhone, though. I'm currently using a 7, and the newest ones are a huge leap forward.
What a sweet story!The struggle is REAL. We'd actually travelled to the breeder to pick up Peggy's sister Agnes, an apricot parti. Well Agnes wanted nothing to do with us while Peggy smothered us in kisses and trotted at my heels.
I asked the breeder if people found black partis hard to photograph, and she said many people won't take them for that reason. My heart broke and our decision was made. We just had to take her.
Haha! Yes! This is a very real problem, too. Peggy will be having the sweetest, stillest, most adorable moment, but the second I pull my phone out, she's back to her usual antics.
I see those sweet soulful eyes!When I went to look at Raffi's litter, I had my eye on a black and white tuxedo sibling- and maybe that was partly because it was not just a black furry blob! (I was set on a dark color though, since we are on a farm and I want to hide the dirt lol.)
It seems like the only time he is still is when he is curled up, so in most pictures of him I'm lucky to be able to pick out his muzzle and that's about it.
