Rusty & Roxy 12/26/2011 {Pet}

I’ve been asked recently how my kids are doing. So I thought I would photograph them and share it with everyone.

Rusty is now 15.5 pounds and doing great! He is a great big brother! He is kind, gentle and sweet! He allows her to tug and tear at his ears and bite his legs.

Roxy is now 5.8 pounds. She is a talker! She has started to sleep on the bed with Rusty and I. Not one mistake thus far! Let’s keep our fingers crossed! She is a puppy and does the puppies things. From what I can tell, she has adjusted pretty well!

For the both them, they play together well. At times a bit rough but I image that is just the way dogs do it. Just happens to be around the time I want to sit down and watch a movie. lol The cutest thing I’ve noticed is how much they are together. When we are out on walks or in the house she rubs up against him to say “hey I’m here”.  It’s totally cute!

Well enjoy the few photographs I have of them as of 12/26/2011.

Roxy – My 38th birthday gift to myself {Pet}

Roxy is the newest edition to the Lujan Family! Last Wednesday I went out unexpectedly and looked at this precious little Shih Tzu. Shortly after Rusty and I spent time with her, we took her home.

They got along. Rusty never been around a puppy before did amazingly!

He even started to share his toys.

Roxy has some amazing colors. The black is only on the tips. The vet said they will grown out
and become beige. But the black around her face should stay.

I Love puppies! and even more I love this little girl!

She loves the camera. I think I’m in trouble.

Rusty 5/1/2011 {Pet}

Yesterday I was playing with my strobe lights when I decided to photograph Rusty. He needs a bath and a haircut but still thought he looked cute enough to share his photographs from our mini pet session.

Java who is 15lbs & Rusty who is also 15lbs {Personal}

Yesterday I took both Java (my cat of 16 years) and Rusty (my dog who is 9 months old) to the vet to get checked out.
Rusty has a smelly ear with dark stuff inside & Java has been walking strange and needed a check up.

The vet tech weighed both Java & Rusty and to find out they weigh the same 15lbs.

When the vet came in I mentioned that Java seems to be walking a little funny and walking on more of his paws then usual.
She watched him walk and told me some bad news.
She said that Java displays signs of being diabetic and has “Plantigrade stance“, standing on its hocks instead of on its toes.
She suggested we do a full blood panel and urine same. I had to agree as I was now scared of what could happen.

Rusty’s ears were cleaned and tested. It came back he has a yeast ear infection.
She said Rusty has allergies which caused yeast infections. If could be food, home, outdoor or seasonal allergies.
They cleaned them out really good. Gave me ear drops and Prednisone (antibotics).
We are to go back in 2 weeks for a checkup for him.

Depending on Java’s lab results will determine the course of action we take.
It’s clear that things will have to change. I’ll have to wait and see what comes back.

It’s been a rough year. With my Grandparents passing and losing my cat Jessie and
my Aunt who past a few weeks ago to now having Java and Rusty having some form of difficulty, weighs a lot on my mind.

I’m blessed not only to have the people in my life but also my pets who are really like my children.

More then the people around me, Java and Rusty have helped me through these rough times.
Some people might not get it but many of you do. Special ones that are close to their pets.

All of these photographs were taken this morning. It’s been a while since I really photographed my kids.
It’s something I need to do more often. I should really put up my backdrops and lights and do a real session.

Thank you reading and viewing this post. I’m sure things will be all okay and just need to
wait and figure out a course of action for Java. As for Rusty, he still jumps and plays and tears up the house
As a little puppy should! But my old man Java has me a bit worried as he’s been with me for 16 years.  Hard not to worry.

Again thanks! Anthony

Rusty’s Haircut {Personal}

So a few weeks ago I gave my little boy Rusty a haircut! Well I used my hand and scissors thinking I could do a darn good job. Well I sucked at it! This poor little guy looked all chopped up!

So today out of guilt, I took him to the groomer and had him professionally groomed. They also cleaned his ears, cut his nails and they filed down his pads.

So now my little guy looks happy as can be! This Sunday he’ll be 17 weeks old. I bought a new toy for him for being a good boy at the groomers, which I didn’t photograph. Oh boy I’m slipping up!

I love side profiles of dogs!

They trimmed his backside, They did a much better than I could ever do! I’m always afraid that I’m gonna nick something!

Look at his funny face!

How can you not love me????

If you won’t, I’m gonna lick you until you do!

You guys make me happy when you come and visit my page!

As you can see he’s getting bigger and longer. He is still as handsome as when I fell in love with him. I remember the first time I saw him and said he is mine!

“Rusty” after bath time {Personal}

What a beautiful day here in Southern California! The sun was shinning bright and the birds were chirping. I think the temp was around the mid 80’s here in Corona, California. So I figured if it was still warm when I got home, I was going to give Rusty his first bath. If you remember Rusty is my Shih Tzu I got myself as a Father’s Day present.

So for the first time my Rusty had a bath. Surprisingly he did great! I thought he was going to jump and shake all about but he didn’t. I talked to him the entire time giving him kisses here and there.

I couldn’t multitask bathing and photographing  him as water and camera doesn’t mix! So I took some photographs of him running around the house after his bath. He was happy as a clam! You’ll also see Rusty and Jessie together. Then I had to include my oldest kid, Java. Can’t leave out all my kids right!

“Rusty” a Father’s Day gift to myself {Pet}

Everyone meet my new addition, “Rusty”. “Rusty” is a Shih Tzu and is 9 weeks old today. This was my gift to myself for Father’s Day.

After every thing I’ve been through these last 10 months (including being forced to give up “Roo” or lose my apartment) I have been extreamly lonly and needing love and affection. So I decided on getting anther dog that will be allowed in my apartment complex and a breed that is super smart and that has a super Temperament.

The Shih Tzu (pronounced SHEE-tsoo, is a breed of small Tibet of very ancient dog type, with long silky fur. The breed originated in China. The name is both singular and plural.

A small dog with a short muzzle and large deep dark eyes, with a soft long, double coat, the Shih Tzu stands no more than 26.7 cm (10 1/2 in.) at the withers and with an ideal weight of 4.5 to 7.3 kg (10 to 16 lbs). Drop ears are covered with long fur, and the heavily furred tail is carried curled over the back. The coat may be of any color, although a blaze of white on the forehead and tail-tip is frequently seen. The Shih Tzu is slightly longer than tall, and dogs ideally should carry themselves “with distinctly arrogant carriage.” A very noticeable feature is the very crooked bottom teeth.

The traditional long silky glossy coat that reaches the floor requires daily brushing to avoid tangles. Often the coat is clipped short to simplify care, in a “puppy clip”. For conformation showing, the coat must be left in its natural state, although trimming for neatness around the feet and anus is allowed. Because Shih Tzu noses are small and flat, owners often wipe the dog’s face with a damp paper towel to remove food remnants after the dog has eaten a meal. Shih Tzu may be trained to drink out of a water bottle. The water bottle keeps the face clean and dry preventing red yeast from growing on the Shih Tzu beard and moustache. Owners often tie strands of hair from the Shih Tzu’s head into a pony tail that sticks up.

The Shih Tzu is a friendly lap dog that at one time was bred to be a companion dog for Chinese royalty. Some say living in the imperial palace gave the Shih Tzu an arrogant quality although they also display qualities of devotion and adaptability. They are not afraid to stand up for themselves. They tend to be sweet, playful, and trusting as well.They should be introduced to young children at a young age. It ranks 70th in Stanley Coren’s The Intelligence of Dogs, considered one of the lowest degree of working/obedience intelligence (train-ability).

The life span of a Shih Tzu is 12-16 years although some variation from this range is possible.

I hope you enjoyed these photos of my new addition”Rusty”.

Jackie a Wire-haired Dachshund {Pet}

Today my Aunt Rezi and I visited my Uncle John who is my Grandfather’s brother living in Vista. He was kind enough to help my Aunt and I out with some Croatian documents needed for our trip in May. It was a long drive but my Aunt and I loved it as the flowers on along the 15 were in bloom.

My Uncle has a dog named Jackie. He’s a Wire-haired Dachshund. I had fun and got my exercise running around chasing him as he that didn’t want to be photographed. Gotta love pet photography some times. The tough part was photographing at the worst possible time of day, direct sunlight. Can you say “Sunny 16 rule”!

I hope you enjoy the photographs of Jackie.
