Boris is very lucky to have escaped euthanasia when he was rescued just in time from the pound by Staffords in Need and in turn by Carly with whom he now shares a happy life. With his engaging smile and striking brindle coat it is hard to imagine he was abandoned. Perhaps his first home was a misplacement with an owner who preferred a sedentary lifestyle. This would not be something Boris would be happy with.
After inclement weather thwarted several attempts to photograph Boris and Carly we finally met up at an inner city oval in Melbourne to record Boris running around with his frisbee, ball and tug-of-war toy. They are the favourite activities of this friendly and excitable Staffy cross. He also loves to run alongside Carly’s bike and to jump into puddles; the muddier the better. Such a boy thing to do!
Boris is indeed a busy boy and just loved tearing around in the open spaces, occasionally stopping for a cuddle before racing off to expend more of his boundless energy.
I couldn’t believe it when half way through the pet photography session the skies opened up and it bucketed down with rain. Luckily we could take cover in the grandstand and I just love these two photos that I took while we were sheltering there.
