Smushy Shar Peis turn me to mush, and this squishy Shar Pei puppy was no exception. I was actually in Long Beach shooting another event when I ran into a couple and their Shar Pei puppy enjoying the beautiful sunny weather. (Seriously, I only run into adorable puppies while I'm shooting events!)
When I was in high school, I dog sat for a couple who had two Shar Peis, and I've loved the breed ever since. They're such sweet, gentle dogs with the squishiest Grandpa-just-removed-his-dentures faces that you just can't resist. I had never seen a Shar Pei puppy in person before and seeing this little guy just melted my heart.
His parents were gracious enough to indulge me a few shots of their popular pup. How cute is he?!
