AHH!! The Spring air!

You know it's spring when the dog's nose gets moving a mile a minute! Had to let you see this shot of Timmie, the famous dog of Timmie Doggie Outfitters in Toronto. We had a great time during Timmie's photo shoot at his local dog park hang out! Timmie's now offers a spa for the papered pouch! If you get a chance to go by you can check out the photo exhibit featuring three of my images.

On a different note I wanted to direct your attention to a link that I have added called "Walking for Veronica". In March I lost a dear friend to a Brain Tumour. Veronica was a close family friend and was only diagnosed a year prior to her death. It was a journey that nor myself my mother or father will ever forget. If there was a day that deserved a good walk in the park it is May 12th at the Ottawa Spring Sprint at Vincent Massey Park. In honour of Veronica, her family has started a blog and foundation in her memory. Their team "walking for Veronica" will be at the Spring Sprint raising money. Please visit their blog to read about Veronica and this great cause. Walking for Veronica

Thanks to everyone for coming out to the Pet Lover's Expo and stopping by the booth. Although the weather was not exactly great, Merrickville is still a beautiful town to visit for the day! All of you were the first to grab the new brochure featured here. The cover image is of Scooter, the proud owner of Gloria. I wanted to point out a great pet friendly place to stay! Only a couple of hours away from Ottawa is the pet friendly cottage resort that you can bring your loyal canine with you! Check out www.lakeedge.com.

And....you need to check out this artist! Lee-Anne Healey's Carvings in Wood! www.healeycarvings.bravehost.com

May 6th
B.A.R.K. Woofs and Wags walkathon
So everyone has to come out this event! A great day at the arboretum raising money for an awesome organization and cause that helps a ton of dogs! The day includes a free barbeque and vendors that have provided their services for free. In fact the line was large for photographs that I have enlisted a great photography friend of mine Brigitte Bouvier.

Last year B.A.R.K. spent close to $175,000 in vet bills. Any money raised during their largest fundraising event of the year will go towards a great cause. I have been working with B.A.R.K. for close to 6 years and I have been inspired and propelled to action by the awesome conditions that Sharon and Peter go into to rescue these dogs. If there was a day that was worth a walk in the park, it is this day. Plus the trees are always blooming in the park! It is a beautiful day. Everyone do the non-rain dance please! So stop by, grab the new brochure, get your photo done....but most of all enjoy raising money for an awesome group!

Well it has been a crazy spring and it continues to get even more busy! March was a great month with a great trip to Vegas for a great workshop with one of the world's top wedding photographers, Bambi Cantrell and the WPPI.
