wally & maggie!

Remember my cutest dog contest from fall? Well, Wally was the big winner with over TWO HUNDRED votes! Unbelievable. I was finally able to meet Wally & his sister Maggie this weekend for their photo session. We’ve been so fortunate to have an early spring here in MN and I was so happy to see that the grass at one of my favorite parks is already green! This session almost looks like it was done in the middle of summer!

When I arrived at the park, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, having only seen Wally’s submission photo. I thought he was some kind of retriever mix… about 50 pounds. So when Cortni opened the trunk and these guys jumped out, I couldn’t believe how BIG they were! Wally & his sister Maggie are both about 100 pounds and TALL! Maggie is an English mastiff & Wally is an unknown mix. Cortni rescued both of these guys at different times (and from different states!), but they get along beautifully.

This is my favorite photo from the day… the two dogs, cheek-to-cheek. [Maggie is on the left. Wally is on the right.]

Cortni is such a great mom… although if these two teamed up on her, they could pull her small frame right over! I’m not quite sure how she successfully wrangles 200 pounds of dog on a daily basis. My favorite photo in this next series could probably be considered an ‘outtake’… it was when I asked her to give the dogs a big hug and Maggie decided it would be the perfect time to plant a big sloppy kiss on Cortni’s face!

Then we spent some time enjoying the beautiful morning & that bright green grass!

This last photo helps depict Wally’s true size…. he comes up to Cortni’s hip!
