Back in November we held the first ever Steeple Leaze Farm Christmas Fair and this is where I met Blade's owners Pam and Nathan.
Nathan contacted me shortly after the event asking if I would do a portrait of their Malamute Blade
, he said he has been looking for someone to do a portrait for a while and when he saw my work at the Christmas Fair he knew I was the right person for the job!
I arranged to head over to Bridport to meet Blade properly, although I had seen some photos it's always great to meet them if I can as it helps to get to know their character. At first he was a little shy but soon came out of his shell when we took him out to a nearby field for a run, it was great to see him outside, he really is an impressive pooch!
