Daneridge's Penelope Steele, NJP, NAP, NA, CGC, TDI, TT

October 10, 2005 – This week's DaDane features a formal portrait of Suzzane Kelleher-Duckett's 9-year-old Penelope. This was a commissioned piece derived from a photo I took at last year's National. The finished portrait, which measures 20 x 25 inches, was printed using archival pigment inks applied to satin canvas. It was then stretched and framed.

Penelope has appeared several times on DaDane of DaWeek – and for two reasons. First, she is quite lovely (the prettiest merle I've ever laid eyes on); and second, Suzzane loves to put her in front of a camera. (Or, more accurately, I could say Penelope loves to find herself in front of a camera – she's a ham.) You can view Penelope's earlier DaDane appearances here, here, and here.

Last year Penelope competed in agility, at the venerable age of 8, and won High in Trial at the GDCA National in Texas. It was her first time in the Standard Novice Agility Preferred class, and she earned a perfect score and ran 21 seconds under time. She gave new meaning to the phrase, "You're only as old as you feel." Take a look at Penelope's personal Agility Page, and you'll see what I mean.

As I mentioned last week, this year I'm not hosting a booth at the Arizona Nationals due to the long travel distance. Instead, I'll be watching the Danes in the ring and taking lots of photographs. For those of you who are interested in commissioning a portrait, I've prepared a brochure in PDF format that provides information about pricing, scheduling, etc. You can view it here:

If you'd like some quality photos but you aren't quite ready for a formal portrait, I'll be happy to photograph your Dane in or out of the ring. You will find more information about photo sessions in the brochure linked above. Or, you can visit my Dane Portrait website at
