Fur flying love scratches

Fur flying love scratches, originally uploaded by phaird.
Ah to be back in the park. It was such a nice summer day. A little muggy but the sun was out, not super hot, and dogs all around. There are ball dogs and water dogs and stick dogs but in general, it breaks down to two types. Dogs that love other dogs and dogs that love people. This gal is a people dog. Before I took this photo, I was squatting down, shooting other dogs. When I put the camera down, She was standing right in front of me, waiting for a butt scratch. Very cute.
Toby was over the moon about being at the park again. No cone of shame so he got to run around, jump in the pond, chase other dogs and just be a dog. He has really been wanting to go to the park for a while now. I've been so busy with photo events on the weekends, that this weekend was the first time in 3 weeks we've been at the park. It's going to be a crazy summer so I'm going to be real hit or miss at the park but I'll try to keep up with posts and events.

Welcome back Sunday

June has been a crazy month for me.  I've been setting up my photo tent at different dog events which has been keeping me really busy.  Whisker Walk and Bark in the Park were both a lot of fun and I got to meet all kinds of great dogs and owners but I miss my Sunday at the park. It's the one day a week just for Toby and me to just be.  This Sunday, I'll be at the park again, camera in hand and dog at my side.  I'm still looking for people and dogs to photograph for the diptych project so if you're interested, drop me a note and I could come by some time since the park is not the best place.  Most people I've talked with aren't dressed for their picture.  I'm not worried because it's just fun and a portfolio builder for me.

Whisker Walk this Sunday

I won't be at the park this sunday.  Now that the nice weather is here, there are a lot of dog events going on and I'm going to try to get to some of them.  This year starts off with me actually setting up a booth at Whisker Walk which is a really big event.  It was the first event I did last year and even with lousy weather, I was really busy.  Now with GREAT weather expect, I should be totally slammed. If you're in the area, stop by.  I'm setting up a portable studio and will be doing 5x7 photos of dogs for only $25.  It is a lot of fun and every animal friendly group will be there.
