Rest In Peace – Mrs. Peeps

A loyal friend.

A gentle beast.

A Perfect Pomeranian

Pure Poof

And a very talented model.

Peeps was very easy to work with. She took direction well and posed with a natural ease that made it look easy. Other models loved her laid back style and I swear anybody who ever met her loved her ( except for one person but that was before the rescue. ) She was a West coast native but fell into the sophistication and understated elegance of the New York K9 modeling scene with ease. Peeps was a natural and as a photographer I can say she rarely took a bad picture. That’s unusual for a K9 model. Peeps will be missed as will the love she inspired in all of us. Peep’s former master is a dear loved one of mine. I’m sad for her today. She gave Peeps the best of everything on top of her endless love and attention. Here are a few shots of Peeps that I had hanging around my studio today.

Peeps showed a lot of talent very early in her K9 Model career. Here she is in a snapshot with Jack, fooling around on the set in 29 Palms.

Peeps could hold her own with any model. Here she goes face to face with the devastating good looks of Luca Finotti. – 2010 – Italian Vogue Cane

Peeps could do beauty too. I don’t think most people realized that. She had a perfect face for it. I saved thousands on retouching because she simply didn’t need any. Here’s an out take from a Japanese campaign for Doggy Eyedrops that we shot in Kyoto around 2011. She loved to travel. She also loved sleeping.

Mrs. Peeps ( Peeps ) She was always a pleasure to work with. She would do anything I asked, but she wouldn’t wear fur…I mean another animal’s fur…she wouldn’t do that. Also, she never had an agent. She was freelance her whole career, that’s unique for a successful K9M. There will never be another like Peeps. She defined her breed. Rest in peace, Peeps.
