Meeting Archie, you would not expect him to be 9 years old. He has all the energy of a youngster. Running around continuously during his session, and a very real obsession with his spiky ball thing.
When asked to pose, he would ham things up, and as much as I tried in the sea breeze, I could not get him to prick up his ears, while capturing him up close.
Instead, he decided to hold off until we had a rainbow to work with.
Archie's human tells me he is a bit of a food thief, with a penchant for apples and vegemite on toast.
After a bit of a play on the beach, we headed inland for a more bush setting, and Archie kept up the posing like a rockstar.
