Wiggles and woofs everybody! I thought it was time for a little cuteness overload this weekend, so I am sharing a few more of my photos in the Tales of Tails series. You have already met quite a few fabulous Hawai’i Tails, including my piglets, and here are three more.
These three cuties are siblings of different parentage, and are all rescue dogs.
Above is Little Lola Red Riding Hood, a sweet little Chihuahua girl, who just posed kindly wherever I placed her.
In the two images below is Daizy the Witch of the Forest. Sweet Daizy is a Pug-Japanese Chin mix who was rescued from a dumpster – can you believe! – but now has a very happy life. She was even the cover girl for the Fall 2014 issue of Island Dog Magazine, though not photographed by moi. Like a true little witch, Daizy beats to her own drum.
And here is Gizzy Indiana Jones of the irresistible head tilt. These are all little nicknames I gave these furry kids. Dizzy, a Papillon-Japanese Chin mix, picked up his toy and went exploring, hence the Indiana Jones title. He took his toy everywhere, and never forgot it.
I photographed these cutie pies during a two-day-all-over-Oahu-photo-thon as candidates for a Paws in Paradise calendar. Little Lola, Daizy and Gizzy did not get selected, but I thought they should still get their own feature at least here in the blog. Lola and Daizy are wearing costumes because of a special request. Gizzy said he is not a costume kind of boy.
The photo location for Lola, Daizy and Gizzy is Nu’uanu Valley Park, off the Pali Road on the way from Honolulu to Kailua, just behind Queen Emma Summer Palace.
A little tidbit: in Hawai’i, mixed-breed dogs are called Poi Dogs.
I hope you have enjoyed meeting these little fluffernuts. Do you have furry kids of your own? I would looooove to hear about them in the comments!
