Fast asleep in the mid-afternoon sun, these Labrador retriever puppies couldn’t be cozier or more content as baby Ella screams with joy. Lisa Willey, a Maple Grove resident since 2000, took advantage of a great summertime photo opportunity while spending a day visiting a family friend. “Her daughter’s dog recently had a litter of puppies,” Willey says. “We thought it would be fun to do a photo shoot of them with the kids.” Willey brought her two daughters, Lexi and Brooke, along for the day of play.
