Gimmie Some Action | Action Photos of Dogs

Oh how I love an action shot. I don’t get to do them with every dog. Some dogs are a little older or may have health problems that keep them from moving fast enough for an action shot and that’s ok. I want pets comfortable and happy at photo shoots. But, when I can get them running with ears back, mouth open, and their tongues hanging out, what fun! I love those photos.

This past week I was able to take a few actions shots of Boo Radley when we were in Evergreen. Right now he’s young, healthy, and fast. I don’t have to worry about him being comfortable with a run, now I just have to worry about keeping up!

Tails from the other side | 52 Week Project | Week 51

Tails, tails, tails. That’s our project for this week. Anything on the other side of the face. I have to say some dogs have really cute back ends and some are not so cute. So depending on the doggie or kitty I may or may not get a booty shot. One thing I do love is when a dog is curled up and wraps his tail around his nose. So cute and cuddly. So here is my shot this week for the 52 week project.

Boo with his tail around his nose. I just want to snuggle up with him.

Doggie DNA Test

Ever consider having your dog’s DNA tested? We adopted Boo Radley and we were told he was a lab mix but they weren’t sure. We had heard of the DNA testing but we thought that it would be several hundred dollars so we never did it for Cleo. We knew he was a pointer mix but pointer and what?

It turns out there is a do it yourself test kit made by Wisdom Panel that can tell you what kind of ancestry your dog has for $75. We bought the kit, did the cheek swab according to the instructions, sent it back and they emailed us the results. After you get the results you can upload a picture of your dog and they will send you a new certificate with the picture. It was easy and now we know for sure what Boo is.

Here’s just one side of his family tree.

I totally see the Pomeranian!

Does he look like a Pomeranian to you?

PS. You can buy the same kit at Amazon for $54 here.

Maxfund Open House | Adoptable Pets Visit Santa

This weekend we took photos of Santa with visiting pets and friends at the Maxfund open house and had a blast. We had a lot of return customers this year and we were able to raise some money for the shelter.

Here is a picture of Willow, a cat up for adoption, she is available at the Maxfund and would love a forever home.

Road Trip | 52 Week Project | Week 49

It’s not just time for another 52 Week Project… it’s time for a road trip! That’s the theme this week. Aimed to get us get up and moving. I love to find new places for photo shoots and this time instead of picking a beautiful outdoor park I picked a couple of murals around Denver. I love the bright colors with Boo Radley’s dark black fur and it’s nice to have urban shots sometimes.
