Two unexpected friends.  Both looking for their forever homes.

Cricket, a brindle colored Pit Bull Terrier.  She’s only a baby at 1 1/2 years old and is the sweetest teddy bear.  I mean look at her, she looks just like one!  Cricket has also been through training and has passed her Canine Good Citizen test!!!

Fritz is her buddy.  He is an adult Jack Russell Terrier, Italian Greyhound mix.  Watching these two play is pure joy.  If you have the heart and home for two dogs, this is your pair!

Cricket and Fritz are in a foster home through the wonderful Havranek’s Rescue.  Won’t you consider a soft teddy bear or spunky little guy, for your home?

I photograph animals looking for their forever homes, with the support of HeARTs Speak, an international non-profit group of artists and photographers.  To learn more, on how I can help your animal rescue in the Northeast Ohio region, please contact me.

Last Saturday, some of the advanced Rally dogs of Ohio Air Dogs, demonstrated their skills for a great group of children and adults at the Brunswick Library Pet Palooza!  It was so much fun to watch the faces of the young ones, as the dogs did tricks and followed commands.  Rally is so impressive to me.  It’s the ultimate way to give your companion dog “a job” while still having lots of fun!  Enjoy all the photos from the event and even purchase prints of your dog, right on my website!  Choose “Clients” from the menu bar.  Enjoy!

Meet Snoopy!  Snoopy you’ve met before.  He’s part of the Rally class from my March posting!  He is a Toy Fox Terrier/Italian Greyhound mix.  Snoopy is a wonderful Rally dog and also “prays’ for people, as one of his cute tricks as a Therapy Dog too!

The best part for me with photographing at Ohio Air Dogs, is the unobtrusive candids I can get of the dogs, while they “work.”  This is what I love and a specialty of mine.  Outside of the training facility, my dog photography sessions are unique, fun and candid.  I love to make funny noises and get them to look inquisitively!  It’s so much fun.  These dogs were training as part of the Rally Level 2, advanced class on 3/24/12.  View all the photos and purchase them, on my website by clicking on “Clients.”  Enjoy!

Meet Snoopy!  He’s a character in his own right!  He’s a Toy Fox Terrier / Italian Greyhound mix.  A little body with big aspirations!  He’s training hard at Rally and he stole my heart!
