What is a GriGri? If you’re a rock climber you may immediately picture the device that will save your life if you happen to fall. I know that this is what GriGri’s mommy named him after. Later, I also found that a GriGri in Africa is an every day accessory worn that protects the wearer from evil and brings good luck.
It seems as though GriGri’s name fits him far beyond the average puppy name, as he has become a life savor… as many dogs are for the person who supposedly saved them (we know who saves who). A protector from evil and I am guessing good luck is coming their way too.
He is such a love bug but once the modeling began he was attentive, alert, and very well trained for a puppy only a few months old.
His mom Nikki is the owner at Moxie’s Pet Services… they provide in home dog care, dog training and dog walking services in King County based in Kirkland, WA.
GriGri is being trained to become an ambassador for their training program, and has already become a wonderful role model in his young age. I personally could see him being a therapy dog…he has that calm casual sweet well behaved nature about him.
GriGri’s puppy photoshoot left him pooped out and ready for a nap … by his favorite spot in front of his heater (he thinks it’s his).
Gina & Matt are excitedly awaiting the arrival of their baby, who’s due date was October 29th and has yet to make an appearance. Many of us are stalking their Facebook waiting for news and I figured posting their blog would be a nice way to pass time as we all wait.
We photographed Gina & Matt at Balboa Park in San Diego CA during our west coast photo tour 2013. As our friend Kimberly said we FINALLY got to photograph them! She’s been telling them every year since she had her baby and now that an important milestone for them was here it finally happened.
One of Gina’s favorite places is amongst the trees at Balboa Park, she was glowing with happiness in the fall colors. It is obvious to us that their baby has wonderful well ‘rooted’ parents just waiting to begin a life of adventures together.
We ended within the halls of Balboa Parks Prado and enjoyed some stripes to show off her baby belly, keep in mind this was about 4 weeks before her due date with some room for growth.
Matt & Gina decided to keep their baby’s gender a surprise for birth. No matter what, it is clear that this baby will be loved with all their hearts.
…besides gender isn’t nearly as important as finding out if their baby will be a Spartan or a wee little Fighting Irish on the way out!
