Over $1000 raised for Ottawa Humane Society!

It was a wild and crazy day as 50 contestants battled it out to win the flat screen TV at WAG's first annual Look a Like Contest! Some contestants were so original that no one could compare and they had the camera to themselves! Like Macko shaking below, a gorgeous Komondor! This was my first encounter with this awesome breed! WOW! And below is Eszti, a breed named Puli, with owner Heather! Love the hair do's!

We had a great time and were able to raise over $1000 for the Ottawa Humane Society.Special Thanks go to Realtor Tracey Arnett Realty, for donating the flat screen TV that drove everyone out to the event!

And a huge thank you to Wag Store owners Joan and Lynne for inviting me to photograph this event and be a part of making a difference in an animal's life at the Humane Society.

Enjoy some of the shots from the event!
Cheers everyone!

It was an early morning at the house, making the trip into the local news station for a live hit with Kurt Studley of the A-Channel. All in the name of the Ottawa Humane society and the fundraiser event at WAG the doggin it cafe tomorrow from 10:30 to 4:30.

We are having a look alike contest and I will be on hand to take the photos of all the entries. We are accepting a donation for the Ottawa Humane Society. But if you donate $20 to the humane society then you will receive an 8x10 print of your photo, but if you donate $30 to the humane Society then I'll throw in one of my limited edition perPETual calendars as well!

New Web Site!

With the new weather and the melting of the snow, I thought it was time for some spring cleaning and a little something new. I am sooo happy to finally launch the my web site

On a side note about the music chosen for my web site. Canadian Jenn Grant and American singer Alice Peacock both are dog lovers and both granted permission to use these songs when I approached them. To check out their music go to Alice Peacock and Jenn Grant.

I hope you enjoy the new look and keep posted for some new products.

Old Souls

Over the past month I have received three messages from clients that their beloved dogs had passed away. I think it is important to honor these old souls who help keep our lives balanced in so many ways. I thought it would be nice to honor, Zu Zu, Crom & B.J. with a favorite quote about the nature of these great friends.

" Noble and true, the dog will fight to mend all that is unjust, a loyal and faithful friend dogs make sacrifice for the sake of another, they will never abandon their post, a genuine listener and confidant the dog is keeper of all secrets. "
The Chinese New Year of the Dog

If you get a chance to stop by the magazine rack this weekend, grab a copy of the April issue of Dogs in Canada. The cover features a beautiful Pomeranian of Ottawa breeder Pomamania Reg'd. We had a blast during this photo session, many of you may recognize the little chair that I bring on smaller dog sessions.

Here is a sneak peek of the cover. Hope you enjoy!
