We got to spend time with Nash’s little niece this past weekend. Her name is Chuva (“rain” in Portuguese). She is a sweetheart and a little explorer. She has no fear when it comes to the adult dogs and she also has no problem spending some time alone in the yard exploring and digging! I called her the little “independent adventurer” from day 2 of her life, as I watched her leave the pack on her own while all other pups were nursing just to do a big loop away from mom and then back to find a warm place to get nestled under her arm, and she seems to be living up to that independence and sense of adventure so far! I can’t wait to watch her grow! And I can’t wait until Nash realizes she is not a little alien, but another dog! Hahaha!
This blog is my way of opening the door to the world of photography, and learning along the way. Also, it is a look into the life of my dog, called Nash. He is a Portuguese Water Dog (or portie) that was born in August 2014. Every day he grows and changes and I have been documenting this through my amateur photography. I love his different faces, as they change and evolve every day. I found that when I researched the breed, I didn't have a great look into what makes a portie, a portie. I am attempting to do this with my blog and I hope you enjoy the photos! If you have questions about him, the breed, or raising a portie puppy, please let me know in a comment!
