Client Session ~ Herbie & Bamm Bamm the Havanese
Continued on from Harry’s post, Herbie and Bamm Bamm are Harry’s two little brothers. Both Havanese, they are gorgeous little dogs. You could say that this breed quite popular with Bec’s family, as I’ve also photographed Mali who belongs to Bec’s mum!
Bamm Bamm is three years old and the most independent of the pack.
He has the most silky, softest fur and I was especially taken with his little white fluffy feet, how cute are they!
While he loves attention from people and is a lovely friendly little boy, he’s also quite happy being off on his own, doing his own thing.
We took a trip to the park for a change of scenery and poor little Bamm Bamm got bitten by a nasty ant on his paw. He was valiantly limping around but with some persuasion in the form of delicious treats still managed to pose beautifully for these shots.
His little brother, the youngest of the three at almost three years of age, is Herbie.
Herbie is Bec’s special boy, in her own words “Herbie is my soul mate dog, he has 100% stolen my heart”. He was a wedding present from her husband, arriving on a plane from Melbourne and straight into Bec’s arms. He went through a lot of pain and health problems when growing and as a result, has bowed front legs that don’t quite function as they should and are still quite painful. Perhaps because of his ordeal or perhaps just because thats’s just the way he is, Herbie doesn’t really feel comfortable with pats and cuddles from anyone other than Bec or her mum.
Luckily for me though, Herbie is quite interested in food and it was no problem to get his attention!
With a bit of patience, we even had him sitting and staying at a distance for some gorgeous photos with his big brother Harry in the background.
I just love his brown eyes against his lily white (super soft and fluffy!) fur.
We ended our session at the park with Herbie looking adoringly up at his mum with the sun sinking down behind the trees in the background. Awwww!
