Weasley is being featured April 21 - 8 years since the the Whistler sled dog cull - well, the first day of it. The second day of the cull was April 23 - which will be the last day of this part of my project.
Weasley is such a friendly guy that as soon as I got into my crouch position to photograph him, he wanted to come over for pets. He's a shameless pet-wanter!
When it came time to do his portrait, I finally got him to focus on a treat in my hand - every time I made a sound to get his attention, he wanted to come right to me and lean in for pets... it was pretty hilarious.
His mom said that she used to take him to visit hospitals - he's so friendly he just loved the attention.
Moments after his 10-minute photo session he was wiped out and went to sleep on the living room floor.
Weasley was photographed on location at: A Candyland Gathering!
Weasley is a survivor of the Whistler cull in 2010.
