Even though we are continuing our trip through Holland, I have to get my puppy fix every day. Today, we found ourselves wandering the streets of Den Haag (The Hague, Holland) and, in particular, the Palace Gardens right beside the Royal Stables. It is there that we met this lovely furry face, named Fleur. She is an 11 year old dachshund who certainly knows how to make friends! She came up to greet us and then promptly lay on her back to allow me give her a belly rub…and then when I stopped, she begged with her two front paws for me to continue, all the while looking up at me expectantly.
Now, it was time for a real portrait. Look at the intensity on that little face, and the raised right paw, as she discusses things with her Dad.
And then what we were all waiting for…the pose and the head-tilt!
Such a darling to work with, Fleur obviously lives a good life. I hope her golden years are full of happiness and a full-time staff to dole out the belly rubs!
