Shelter Dogs

It never ceases to amaze me how any dog in any situation still greets you with a smile and a wag. I really do think that everyone should have a pet of their own. It is a proven fact that owning any kind of pet can reduce stress: check out this article on I love my Thursday mornings spent at the SPCA of Texas as their “unofficial” pet photographer :)

Sneak Peak – Vegas

Nope, not Las Vegas – Vegas the lovable yellow lab! All of the dogs in Vegas’¬†extended family are named after cities – such a great idea :) Here are a few photos I wanted to share right away! Check out his incredible smile – such a sweet, sweet boy.

Vegas 10

He was so excited once we made it to the creek at the bottom of the park – he just plopped down in the water and enjoyed the cool water on his tummy.

Ready for my close-up!!

Vegas 04

Stay tuned for more photos of Mr. Vegas in the Highland Park area of Dallas!

SPCA Shelter Pups – all smiles!

Things are back on track after the holidays and the dogs at The SPCA of Texas are ready for their new home. I spent the morning at the shelter playing with all of them.

Meet Eva and Abbey! These two sister’s are from the same house and are too sweet. Eva is more of a goofball, while Abbey just watched us run around. I like how they both look like they are wearing eye-liner!

On the left is JoJo, she is an Australian Kelpie mix, which means she is super smart. And Germany, a shepherd mix, on the right just wanted to run circles around me!

This St. Bernard is just a huge love-bug, ready for hugs and big, BIG kisses. I just couldn’t believe these little legs were holding him up!

And last but certainly not least is this little girl – she was hysterical! First she was a little unsure about my camera, but once she realized it wasn’t going to hurt her she started hamming it up big time. I spent a little extra time with her because (1) she kept making me laugh, and (2) I think she needed some extra play time!

Just too much fun, I love my job as a pet photographer! Dogs are always happy and have so much love to give it is just amazing. Everyone needs a love-bug of their own :) Adopt a dog today!

Wishes for a Wonderful New Year!

Happy New Year! 

I snapped this photos on a recent trip to The Dallas Arboretum in November, I love the colors and it makes me hopeful for the New Year and the arrival of Spring. I am lucky enough to live in a city that doesn’t have much of a winter, however this Thursday the high is only 30 degrees and it is BIG news! Sorry all you guys up North, but just give me a call in the summer when we hit 110!!

Here’s wishing everyone a wonderful 2010 :)

By the way – I’ve named this little guy charlie… my nephew insists that every animal no matter how big or small they may be actually has a name. So I am constantly naming bugs and critters, birds and frogs . I’ve actually become very good at it to tell you the truth.
