I’m not a great photographer, but practice makes perfect and I have the best model. Little Diva arrived Thursday, March 12, 2015. It was an exciting day. I introduced her to my friend Julie in a Google+ video chat. She was glad her long trip was over and she was delivered in my arms by 2 PM PST. It was a long day for her. She snuggled in my arm and took a little snooze. Then she wanted to eat. So, of course, I fed her. She was a hungry girl. Then some water and a nice romp outside and she was ready to explore her new home.

Here are a few pictures:

Yes, I know she looks like she has a plant growing out of her head, but I assure you she doesn’t. The lighting and background aren’t the best, but you do what you can with what you have available with lighting and a safe work space. Diva is being cooperative and indulging my whim to take pictures.

Diva is a little tired from her romp in the backyard and telling the neighbor it was time to stop their party making. She tore off barking, then came back very satisfied with herself.

To tell you the truth, I think she got a little scared (as did I) by going out in the night with such a burst of energy.

Diva doesn’t have her top knot today. We decided to be a bit casual, but when I got the camera out she wasn’t too happy to be photographed with a flat head . . . but she positioned herself in front of the vase so the flowers would substitute for her top knot . . . or she was trying for moose antlers. I don’t know for sure, but the next pictures need to be a lot better if I’m to satisfy my little Diva.

I’d like to thank Yvette, Diane and Jerry for getting Diva safely to me. Diva is a Firebrand Yorkie from http://firebrandyorkies.com and Pacific Pet Transport picked Diva up and brought her from LAX to my door. It was a busy, exhausting day for Diva, but she arrived safely and happy. I couldn’t be more delighted with my beautiful Diva.

I’m looking around for some great bows to tie up Diva’s top knot. I kind of liked the snap on bows in this video:

I hope this video was informative and gave you an alternative to the bands and bows you’ve been using. YouTube has plenty of tutorials on making some fancy top knots for your four paws and a tail sweethearts.

Here’s a great video tutorial I enjoyed:

I hope this gave you some food for thought when creating an impressive bow for your loving pet. I know Diva will really be styling when I put them in her top knot.

Thanks for stopping by.
