Rat Terrier Puppies for Sale

Our little rat terrier dog “Lollypop” has recently had a litter of pups and they are way too cute not to share!  The pups are 5 weeks now and will be ready to go to new homes on April 13th 2013.  Both the parents are pure bread rat terriers.  The pups will be between 10 and 14 pounds when fully grown.  There are still three that are not spoken for.  The puppies are $350.00 with their fist set of vaccinations.  You can e-mail me or call me at 250 428 3417 to reserve one.  Here are a few photos that I took of them to tease you…


The puppies are 5 weeks old in this photo.  I’m sad that we only have them for a few more weeks before they go to their new homes.  They are so much fun!!!

The next two photos below were taken when the pups were 3 weeks old, the basket they are in is just big enough to fit a loaf of bread…



And finally here is a collage from when the puppies were just one week old and about the size of a hamster.  We named them “Hot Dog”, “Smarties”, “Cookie”, “Oreo”, and “Smokey”.

Creston Valley Beauty

Just over a year ago I released a book showcasing the beautiful Creston Valley in photographs.  I consider it such a privilege to live amongst such beauty as the Creston Valley holds and each photo I took holds special memories for me.

The book is called “Creston Valley Beauty”.  I am completely sold out of them, however there are still a few left at various places around Creston if you’d like to snag one before they are all gone.  The books sell for $23.95 and can be found at Pharmasave, Creston Card & Stationery, Black Bear Books, Truscott Farms, The Blueberry Patch, or Creative Fix.  Special thanks to these venues for their support!  I’ve included some of my favorite photos from the book in this post…

My Little Angel

One of my top favorite subjects to photograph are my children.  Lucky for me, my daughter loves getting her picture taken.  I took these studio photos of her last fall, but I havn’t shared them till now._MG_9117_1_MG_9054a_MG_9032a

We also decided to go outside and try some shots jumping on the trampoline.  Here is my favorite photo from that attempt.  Part way through our photo shoot our dog snatched up the wings while we put them down for a moment and he tore them to pieces, so that was the end of that.  My daughter was quite upset about that & so I quickly ordered a replacement pair for her.  I guess she’s grown quite attached to them, lol.


If you havn’t seen the angel photos I took of her the year before on the swing, here are a few of my favorites from that photo shoot…_MG_2613 Fav_MG_2648Fav_MG_2670Fav_MG_2607 Fav_MG_2654 FAV_MG_2563 Fav_MG_2574Fav_MG_2589Fav
