As a self-taught hobby photographer the most uncomfortable part of the entire process is sharing my work with others.
Along my photography journey i’ve discovered that people can be very sensitive about photos being shared. I’ve learned to always respect the privacy of others and never share a photo of a person online without their permission. I’ve also discovered that the same can be true about dogs, people do not always appreciate having photos of their dogs shared online.
One of the promises I made to myself at the beginning of the year was to try and share more photos.
Its a never ending internal battle with myself; share more photos, get worried about the photos not being of my own dogs, admire all the beautiful photos i’ve taken, close the computer and not do anything.
In this post 2011- That’s a wrap I promised, promised myself to get over it. Being its the first of May I thought I had better keep to that promise.
This very handsome fellow is Burbrook Storm Chaser..
“Chase” bred by Peggy Wallace and owned by Carol Rose and Darlene Petralia. Chase and his sister Annie, Burbrook Storm Warning, were recently shown at the ACKSC National Speciality in Wisconsin with amazing results. A very big congratulations to their owners, and breeder on their incredible accomplishments.
And of course no photo share would be complete without sharing some pictures of my own girls! I seem to have a thing for bath photos.
Say dee dee (Sadie), growing up and doing very well.

Molly says pfft enough is enough!
To spring flowers and showers. Happy May 1st!
Well im so glad you shared these. Us Cavalier owners just cant get enough of the Cavalier eye candy can we even if they're not our own. They are all just sooooo gorgoeus. Dini is adorable and reminds me of my Jasper. And I learnt something new. I never knew the older dogs can actually start to go grey!!! Thank you so much for sharing today.
Great pictures but where is Zoey? She won't be happy if she reads this post.
You photos are great. We can never get all six of our dogs together for a good picture!
Oh my goodness your pictures are stunning! What a beautiful bunch of Cavaliers you know 🙂
Zozo can be tortured with a bath and a picture or two next time!
If Jasper is anything like Dini he is Trouble with a capital T! She is so sweet though, I really do love tri's. We have a few big events coming up like the CFSO specialty show in June, I'll make sure to bring my camera this year.
How can anyone be angry that you took their best friends photo :-)?
They are brilliant !

Thanks for including us in your blogs! I love the look of your dogs. Just beautiful!
Hello, my name is Christin Grant and I would just like to say that your pictures and Cavs are beautiful. I would also like to ask you how old Dini was when you took these pictures. Thank You
Thanks for commenting! I do like taking photos and love that people are enjoying them too. I believe Dini was around a year old in these photos. She has since finished her Canadian Championship and has matured into a beautiful girl.
Hi it's Christin again and I just wanted to ask you how much Dini weighs( I understand that you're not her breeder). She looks so adorably petite next to the other cavaliers. Thanks
Dini may look petite in the photos but she is a normal sized Cavalier, she's just young in these photos. At 2.5 years old I'm guessing she is around 15lbs. I'm not an advocate of breeding small Cavaliers (or anything else for that matter) as I believe that when you focus on enhancing one particular trait, in this case size, almost always other traits are overlooked such as health and longevity. I've been told by a few of my breeding mentors that Cavaliers should pick up heavier than they look. This means we like to see a Cavalier who will easily fit on a lap, but we definitely want some substance there!
Sometimes you will get smaller Cavaliers in a litter, but if I had a choice I'd always prefer to have everyone well within standard (12-18lbs).
Dini is a beautiful girl, one of my favourite tri colours and I'm fortunate to see her often!
Hi it's Christin and I have one more question ,if I may ask. Since breed standard in the U.S. (where I live) is 13-18 lbs, is a cavalier that is 15 pounds on the lower end of breed standard? Thanks
