More Meows on Blue Mutt!

I was so excited to hear that my friend Blair, and her husband, who have been in the market for a new home – finally ended their long search… because they ended it in MY neighborhood here in Dallas. I couldn’t be more happy to have a great friend so close and as a new neighbor. My excitement reached a new level when she called me to let me know they had adopted a teeny-tiny little kitten. I ran over to snap a few photos of their cat as a housewarming gift and a great blog post!

Meet Honey, the sweetest little kitten in my neighborhood. She was a natural at getting her photo taken, but I did get a good laugh when her Dad asked me if – as a pet photographer – I knew how to talk to animals since she was behaving so well.

Another special fact about Honey (full name Honey-Mustard) is that somewhere out there, maybe not even born yet, she has a brother on the way! Her parents are looking to adopt a sheepdog, who already has a name… Ketchup! I’m sure that Honey-Mustard and Ketchup will be fast friends! Welcome to the neighborhood :)

Murray & Lucy

Every now and then I am lucky enough to get to spend an afternoon with a gorgeous cat or two. And that is exactly what Murray and Lucy are for sure! Talk about a change of pace. Photographing two beautiful cats could not be more different than photographing two dogs. The first thing I always tell my cat clients is “The cat is in charge of this session.” Murray and Lucy were definitely in charge of their own session and it couldn’t have turned out better. They were a bit cautious at first, but with a little patience and some loving coaxing they eventually came out of their shells and showed me their curious personalities :) That is Murray on the left and Lucy on the right!

I just love cat whiskers! Check out Lucy’s long white whiskers :)

Photo Day: Pet Resort Dallas

Blue Mutt Photography recently teamed up with Pet Resort Dallas for a fun filled Photo Day! Talk about some characters! I fell in love with each and everyone of these guys in an instant. From some of the goofiest to the shy ones, they all had a personality of their own. I met Phoebe – the sweet blind schnauzer; Mia – who has graced the pages of Modern Dog; Paris – who has her very own hot-pink wheelchair; Sammy – who is looking for his forever home; Snow – the deaf boxer; Easy (as in “The Big Easy”) – one of the biggest dogs I’ve ever met; the brother and sister team named Guns and Roses; Sadie – who’s missing half an ear; Freddie – who’s ears look as though she is always wearing pigtails; and so many more lovable fur-monsters!

Pet Resort Dallas is an incredible facility full of very happy dogs! The employees treat each dog as if they were their own and each day is topped off with an ice cream cone full of doggie ice cream! Talk about the life :) The best part of our photo day at Pet Resort Dallas is that 30% of the revenue from each photo went to Paws in the City, a local animal rescue group!! Thank you to Pet Resort Dallas and all their clients who helped raise funds for animals in need!

Oh, and be sure to tell me who your favorite is, especially if one of these is your fur-monster!!
