Bear and Barley

I met Rob and Pattie at Bethel Animal Hospital’s Second Chance Carnival in Port Orchard, sharing my tent for some shade, as Barley (a Second Chance guy himself) is a Saint Bernard, so it was much too hot for him. They decided they wanted to do a session with Barley and his best buddy, Bear (I swear, I didn’t strong-arm them!). We met at Manchester State Park, and had a spectacular time with those big, furry darlings. Here are some of my favorites:

Thank you, Rob and Pattie! I look forward to meeting the rest of your crew!

Gotta Love a Working Dog!

It was quite a summer of events and sessions – I’ll be catching up the blog over the next few weeks – you are in for some juicy, furry, cuteness!

 I was fortunate to participate in Mason County’s “PAWS  ‘n the Park” fundraiser for the Humane Society of Mason County on Saturday, August 18 at Belfair State Park. While there were lots of super nice people and interesting dogs, the most exciting part of the day for me was the bloodhound demonstration given by Sgt Trevor Severance and Cedar. Sgt. Severance is the Search and Rescue Coordinator and K-9 Unit Supervisor of the Mason County Sheriff’s Office, Cedar was only 15 months old at the time! We are so fortunate to have such dedicated people and amazing resources in this area – thank you Sgt. Severance and Cedar!

Picasso = Art

Allow me to introduce Picasso! This handsome dude belongs with Jeremiah, who I met at the Gig Harbor Mud Bay store (if you haven’t been there, you must check it out – they have great products and staff).  Thanks to Hollywood in the 90’s, Rotties have a bit of a reputation as tough guys, but I have yet to meet one that was not a big sweetheart, and Picasso certainly falls well within that category. Like good looking men everywhere, he was more than happy to show off his genetic superiority, and pose away. Thank you Jeremiah and Picasso!
