Hugo is not my usual client, he has four legs for a start, but how could I resist a photo shoot with this wonderfully charming chocolate Labrador?

We headed out in to the charming Gelt Woods, walked past tumbling streams and through dense woodlands until we came to a clearing, still wooded but with a lot more space between the trees, ideal for Hugo to run about.

It appeared that Hugo likes two things – dog treats and running. ┬áHe has seemingly boundless energy and getting him to sit still, even for one photograph, was out of the question unless a treat was on offer!

The shot (right) was taken while trying to catch him running through the woods chasing a ball. On this occasion the ball fell short and not that far in front of me, resulting in the photograph you see.
