This adorable creature is Kuma, a 10 year old Pomeranian with a very happy life!  He looks like a little red panda to me.  We had a gorgeous, sunny day for our shoot - pretty lucky for this time of year - and we made the best of it by shooting at home in the yard, then trekking to Lincoln Park for some beach time.  Kuma was a natural - very agreeable and SO easy to get good shots of - and a good time was had by all!
