Client Session ~ Levi the Hungarian Vizsla

Levi’s owners were the lucky winners of a Valentines Day competition I held, scoring themselves a free photo session. Entrants were asked to send in a photo of their dog and write a paragraph about what they loved about them.

Here’s what Levi’s Mum wrote:

Hi Charlotte – this is Levi my Hungarian Vizsla.  He’s a big puppy who just wants a cuddle, his wagging tail and happy face are the best tonic after a hard day at the office.  This photo was taken in his ‘backyard’ Hope Island Resort Golf Course.  Every day he happily tries to terrorizes the rabbits, although they’re much smarter and faster than he is and he’d have no idea what to do if he caught one, it’s funny to see him chase them time and time again.  It’s kind of like watching Wiley E. Coyote and Roadrunner, he just never gets it.  The only rabbits he catches are the ones in his dreams.  I love my afternoons spent driving my golf buggy, watching the sun go down over the golf course and smiling along with my dog as he runs here and there tracking those waskly wabbits.

I love Hungarian Vizslas and couldn’t wait to meet Levi. I certainly wasn’t disappointed – he was all that his Mum mentioned in her email – and more. He’s got it all, the looks, the smarts, the fitness and manners to boot!

I was first given the guided tour of the golf course they are fortunate to have at their back gate. Levi rode the buggy like a pro and was equally as comfortable running along beside, I was impressed with his stamina. He usually runs 10 km per day!

We stopped at various places around the course. Unfortunately there were no rabbits on the day so I didn’t get to see him in all his ‘waskly wabbit’ chasing glory.

After we’d managed to get rid of some of this boys seemingly boundless energy, it was time to hop back in the buggy and head back for some quieter shots at home.

I was most impressed with Levi’s begging ability (which he showed off at every available opportunity).

Some more begging – great balance for a big dog!

To top off a great visit, Levi’s owners introduced me to their two gorgeous birds as well. First up, Marley the Eclectus Parrot. This little cutie is just 4 months old and is the sweetest, quietest little birdie I’ve ever seen.

This is Banjo the Sulphur Crested Cockatoo, he’s 6 months old and also super cute!

    Levi is beautiful! He looks so athletic! I love the begging shots. Buddy can only hold a beg for a couple of seconds, so Levi’s really good at that, espcially for a big dog. The birds are gorgeous, too. Great job on these, Charlotte! 🙂
