SESSION NOTE ~ Storm is the one sleddie that both tops out and is as wide as the box. A few others come close, but I think he's the biggest sleddie in the project.
Storm has a bunny tail - not sure what happened to his tail but when I first met him, that was one of the characteristics I made special note of when I photographed him! I don't think it would've been tucked during the photo session - he was pretty cool with it, but he was much more comfortable flaked out on the cool vinyl studio kitchen floor - it was a hot summer day but even open windows didn't help. There was a fan, but not only was that was too scary for many of the dogs but it blew up the fur they were all shedding in HIGH volumes this time of year!
How about those adorable pointy ears and nose freckles?!
