Christmas Puppy Wallpaper Anyone?


Hey everyone, Merry Christmas! Below  I have put a high-resolution version of the photo so you can download it as a wallpaper. I now have it set as my computer wallpaper, phone wallpaper, and my TV wallpaper! I might be a little biased since this is my little guy 🙂  Can’t go wrong with a cuddly doggy in a Santa outfit during Christmas season…enjoy!

Home for the Holidays: Dog Rescue


Last weekend I covered an adoption event being held at the local animal shelter. It was a pretty cool event with a lot of vendors, food trucks, and of course, a lot of animals that wanted a new home. I chose to edit this set in black and white because I wanted all the focus on the dog with no distraction, so you can get a glimpse into his/her personality and see the real emotion residing in these loving animals. I have not yet rescued a dog from a shelter, but you can be assured that I will when I am able.

Being at this event and seeing so many dogs (and other animals, but canines were dominant) that were in such ‘good condition’ with such sweet personalities blew me away. I suppose I have blocked out the reality of animal shelters, but this brought it home to me. These little furballs of joy only want to love and connect, how can they be locked up in a cage with no family to bring smiles to? As you look at these pictures, see yearning in their eyes, you won’t have to look hard. I don’t mean for this post to be a sad one, just to give a glimpse of the beautiful dogs that can use a helping hand. At the end you see a shot of a doggy and her brand new owners, happy day!

Beauty sleep can be a profession…


Say hello to Sarah. She is a proper young woman weighing in at a whopping 4.5 pounds. She manages to stay so beautiful because she has mastered the art of beauty sleep. If you ever are fortunate enough to meet her, let me pre-warn you that you may want to bring your nose plugs…because as good as she is at beauty sleep, she is even better at stealthily licking inside one’s nostrils. You have been warned.

 

Happy Saturday!
