To show my gratitude for all of the helpful info, I wanted to share these 'mostly retriever' pics I have taken over the years. The labs hanging out in the middle of the pool are funny. Note: the picture that looks like it has 6 puppies swimming is actually 1 puppy photographed 6 times and combined with photoshop
That's almost like the story of your adult life so far.

Those are lovely photo's, you are a very handsome looking family, both canine and human

Love your pictures, those as well as those of Bess you took. Your dogs were beautiful. Looks like Bess will be coming home to a very loving home!
Thanks for the nice messages. It's been about 4 years since I have had a dog to photograph. So I have just focused on people, places and special events. I enjoy photography because it captures special memories. I look forward to taking some photos of Bess in the same spot every 2 weeks or so and then link the photos together in a slide show that shows her growth like this one below:
