Puppies 2nd Place Winner, Cat Race, UK
Title of image: "The world awaits"
Dog: Holly, Cocker Spaniel
“After looking through some of my older work I came across this photo and felt there was something magical about it. The picture has an evocative feel of a little puppy sat waiting for her owners to come home. It epitomises John Grogan’s saying ‘dogs have such short lives, and they spend most of it waiting for their owners.’ The pup in the photo is my friend’s dog, Holly. She was just weeks old at the time and had yet to go out and explore the world (in this photo it’s almost like she is pensively contemplating what could be out there) I offered to do a shoot for my friends to capture her adorable puppy. Although Holly’s dad works from home, her mum works at a local college during the week, and when it’s time for her to come home Holly sits herself in front of the glass door, peering out at the world, waiting hopefully for her return. Holly still does this to date, although she’s a little bigger now!"
