Bloopers! | 52 Week Project | Week 35

Happy Friday!

The theme for the 52 week project this week is bloopers. As you can imagine as a pet photographer we tend to have a lot of bloopers. A lot of them are the handlers reaching down to pet the dog or give the dog a snack in the middle of the shot and then, well, there are these.

This is the, “let me smell your face through the camera lens” blooper.

This is the, “yummy, those snacks look good, and I haven’t eaten in years” blooper or the, “I just had Novocaine” blooper.

Last is the, “oh you’ve run out of snacks?” blooper, because if Hammy don’t get paid, Hammy don’t work. 😉

Have a great week.




Cleo’s Favorite Things

I loved Oprah’s favorite things show. A lot of the stuff I didn’t have a need for, heck, a lot of the stuff I couldn’t even afford, but sometimes you’d find a gem. Something you didn’t know existed but it would solve a problem or it was just something you just fell in love with. So I thought I’d do a “favorite things list” for Cleo, things that I loved for him. But I think first I need to create a list of Cleo’s favorite things.

Snacks and Toys:

Zukes snacks are a favorite it doesn’t matter what flavor. I use them for photo shoots and Cleo has broken into my camera bag more than once to help himself. He loves them. He will do anything for them, when I grab the bag he runs over and starts doing random tricks to try to get me to give him the snack sooner.

Thinkers by Plato are a snack made with Duck. Duck has DHA which helps their brain function, they appear to be yummy too because he gobbles them down pretty fast.

Greenies – Cleo loves munching on these and I love them because they really do help stinky breath.

Cleo doesn’t fetch. He likes to play tug and he really likes to kill the squeakers in stuffed toys. But this duck from Multipet has hung on for a year. For some reason it’s the one stuffed toy he hasn’t torn to shreds. He carries it around with him and squeaks it but he hasn’t murdered it yet. That doesn’t mean I won’t come home tomorrow and find duck stuffing everywhere but for now it’s his friend.

Crackle Heads toy from JW Pet Company. Like I said, Cleo doesn’t fetch but he chews on the Crackle toy to make noise when he wants to play. He crunches it and pretends to give it to me and then runs. Crinkle, run, repeat.

What else does Cleo like besides snacks and toys? Walks, belly rubs, naps, and a nice cool drink from the toilet. He’s a dog, he doesn’t have a long list. And since he’s a dog he can’t give away bundles of his favorite things like Oprah did.

Does your dog have a favorite product? Let us know, maybe Cleo would like it too.
