Stars are Born!

We wrapped up the shoot with Summer and Legend's puppies on the beach today - what a great time they had!  The afternoon started out sunny, but the clouds began to roll in, along with a brisk breeze.  Still our little stars were great troopers and entertained us all!  The photo crew was awesome and were totally taken with the wee wuns, snuggling them and keeping them toasty warm between shots.  After the beach, we headed back to the house where we met the lucky families getting these little darlins and another couple of hours of filming and everyone was warm, happy and ready for a good night's sleep!  Watch for this episode of "TOO CUTE" on Animal Planet sometime in January!
