A new addition to the Cable family - Our new puppy, Cooper

OK, I will be the first to admit that I was not thrilled with the idea of getting a puppy. We have our hands full with the kids, work, sports and so much other stuff, but the family really wanted a new dog. Since our gentle giant, Bailey, passed away, there was a noticeable void in the house. So, a couple of weeks ago, we got a cute little Labradoodle (labrador retriever and poodle mix) and named him "Cooper". He is a handful, but he is so cute that he makes for the perfect photo opportunity for me. :)

This is Cooper hanging out in the backyard, at the age of 10 weeks.

It is hard to resist this cute puppy face.

Time for some action shots.

I shot these last 3 images as a test of the new Sigma 120-300mm 2.8 lens. I love shooting this lens wide open as it gives great separation between Cooper and the background. I think Cooper will be a well photographed dog. Welcome to the family Cooper!
