The first thing you will notice about Blitz is that he is adorable. The second thing you will notice about him is that he looks like a familiar breed but there is something a bit unusual about him.
That’s because Blitz is a 4 month old Alaskan Klee Kai puppy. (Bet you’ve never heard of one of those huh?). Which is essentially a miniature husky, but not quite. Blitz is just 10 pounds right now, and has a teensy-tiny body, and oh did I mention- keeyooote?
Blitz’ mom told me she gets asked all the time what kind of dog he is, and now to save time she just says ‘mini husky’. This was proven to me about 5 minutes into our shoot when the first puppy-lover stopped to say hi.
What cracked me up the most was an interchange that happened during the shoot after I noticed Blitz shivering. “Hey- I thought you were supposed to be from Alaska?!” I said. “No, actually, he is from California”, his mom said. Yeah, I guess he wouldn’t have been used to 45 degrees and windy in So Cal. 😉
