Transcript of phone conversation: June 20, 2009, 13:47 Mountain Time. Begin transmission…..

Ricky: (Ring, ring) “Woof, Debbie, this is Ricky, your favorite dog model. I heard you started a blog and I wasn’t your choice for your premier issue of your new blog….what’s up with that?”

Debbie:Ricky, that’s true.  I’m sorry.  I was focused primarily on setting it up and it was a lot of work.  I still don’t even know what half the stuff is on the column to the right….meta?  I started with Rosie because she just happened to be the dog I had photographed the week before. Yes, you are still my number one guy.  How about she will be my first ‘bitch dog’ post and you will be my first ‘male dog’ post, OK?  Have you checked it out yet?”

Ricky:No, no, but I will….woof…good-bye”

Ricky: (Ring, ring) “Raaaargh…raaaargh….raaaargh….!  I saw your blog. Wow, she’s smokin’ ….what a cutie.  I had no idea.”  Debbie, please, please, can I have her rabies ID number…woof, woof. I can take her to the Los Altos Dog Park, maybe some dessert at the Flying Star or maybe a couple of biscuits at the Three Dog Bakery.

Debbie: “Ricky, Ricky, whoa….hold the phone, I don’t know about this.  How about I have my people call her people, then her people can call my people and then my people can call your people.”

Ricky: “Ok, OK, woof, woof, I’ll be waiting, panting by my phone. But, please hurry up and in the meantime please post some of my pictures…pick the best ones.  I want her to see what I look like…too bad you can’t post my lovely scent on the web as well.”

Debbie: “OK, Ricky, will do.”

The many poses of Ricky Miller

The many poses of Ricky Miller

Ricky is on my speed dial for modeling opportunities.  Only 17 months old, Ricky is an extremely well behaved, adorable and sweet Bedlington Terrier.  Bedlington Terriers are small to medium-sized dogs bred to be agile hunters whose head and back along with a soft curly coat makes them look very much like a lovable lamb. http://bedlingtonamerica.com/index.htm

Barely a teenager, Ricky has undergone extensive training and just graduated last week as a therapy dog for Therapy Dogs Incorporate (TDInc). http://www.therapydogs.com/ He will be working along with his mom, Deborah Miller, as volunteers at Lovelace Rehab bringing joy and smiles to those who are hospitalized or bedridden.

Ricky is extremely confident and hits many of his poses with absolutely no problem.  He possess a wardrobe… the quantity and variety that would be the envy of any fashionista.  As you can see above he is a versatile model….cool Harley Dog, dancing with his toy, the Harry Potter look, and the “I’ve had enough primping look.” I hope, in the future, to be able to shoot him in all his different regalia.

    I like that you separate fate from destiny. There is something to be said for trying to account for the idea that we can sometimes fail to fulfill our destiny.

    Vivalkakira: Vincent Versace, photographer, wrote, to always do one piece of (personal) artwork a week….by the end of the year you will end up with 52 pieces…you will end up with great practice and have pieces for portfolio, web, gallery show whatever. That’s what I am trying to do…but every week can be daunting….so I’m going for every 10 days. Thanks for your comment

  6. Extenze says:

    Wow! Thank you! I always wanted to write in my site something like that. Can I take part of your post to my blog?

  7. Debbie Klecan says:

    Extenze: If you are talking about Versace’s quote, I’m thinking he said that in an Epson Printing Tutorial online not sure….I have his book, notes and internet tutorial..it get’s all mixed up after a while.

  10. AntinsSon says:

    Sry for writing Off-Topic but which WordPress template do you use? It looks awesome.

  11. Debra Klecan says:

    Sorry for the delay. I use Default Enhanced 1.5.3 by Clay McIlrath (http://thinkclay.com/) as a template. Not my absolute favorite, but of the 20 plus templates I’ve played with, it is the template that works. The purple of the right column seems to go with the illustrations posted on my site.

  12. Team Roster says:

    You you should change the blog subject Three Dogs a Month | A place to view and discuss dog photography and illustration | by D. Klecan to more catching for your subject you make. I liked the post however.
