A really neat story...

The best part of this video is when they get back from their walk and the dog gives his owner a million kisses to say thank you for all that you do. Just so sweet. So get out your tissues!

Best Friends Pet Care at Walt Disney World

I recently had a couple good friends of mine, Gina and Matt, go down to Walt Disney World for vacation. While they were down there they stopped by Best Friends Pet Care to check out my work!  Here are a few pictures that they sent.

Two portraits are hanging in each of the Luxury Suites.

More pics to come soon!  I have a few more portraits currently being printed for the grooming room.  An awesome facility!  Check out their website below.

Spirit Day at Animal Friends Humane Society

What a great day! I had a blast volunteering at the Animal Friends Humane Society yesterday for my Spirit Day through work. One day each year my work gives us a Spirit Day, which is treated like a vacation day only you are required to volunteer at the place of your choice for the day.

A few coworkers and I went together yesterday and gave our time to this wonderful organization and beautiful animals. We started the day out with breakfast at Bob Evans, delicious! Then it was off to work.

We spent most of the day walking each dog individually, then did some other much needed odd jobs. I met some really great dogs yesterday, and below are a few of my absolute favorites that I may have spent just a little bit more time with.

Sarge - a gorgeous Pit Bull with a great disposition!

Roofus - this guy was bouncing up and down in his kennel when he saw that I had a leash and was coming to take him for a walk. I was a little nervous that he might be really hyper, but he walked great on a leash!

Donte - Oh Donte...I just love you. Sweet, gentle, playful, perfect.

Wallace - What can I say I am a sucker for black lab mixes. Wallace is an absolute joy, and just smiles at you the whole time you are walking together.

I am going to become a regular volunteer at Animal Friends, orientation is October 23rd. I urge you to give some time at your local shelter. I had a wonderful time, met some great people and animals. Donate some time to give back to these wonderful animals that give us unconditional love.

A couple new portraits!

Cranking out some new stuff!  Here are two new portraits of mine.  

Above is one of my new portraits that will be hung in Best Friends Pet Care at Walt Disney World in the grooming area.  Once all are installed I will add some photos!

Rico - a coworker's dog that he rescued from Animal Friends Humane Society!

Speaking of Animal Friends Humane Society, I will be spending the day there tomorrow to volunteer.  The place where I work full time does this wonderful thing called a Spirit Day, which is kind of like a vacation day but you just have to use it as a day of volunteering.  I think it is a super cool idea, and much appreciated!  I think I will be walking dogs, giving them baths, cleaning out cages, etc.  Pics from the day to come later!

Happy October!

Took a great walk this morning with Zumaya, I love this weather! Here is a pic of him after the walk and his bath enjoying his chew flip! It's amazing how happy a 30 minute walk can make your dog.

And here is a recent cat portrait I finished and delivered. I was really excited about the way this one turned out! I had a great picture to work from, and really like the layout.

And finally, congrats to the Cincinnati Reds!! They made the playoffs this week, and I am pumped to root for them through it all the way to the World Series! Let's go Redlegs!!

I fell in love today...

Thor is an amazing dog! Wanted to share his video of his visit to my work today. I want to help him get adopted! Thor is pretty close to a pure bred Rotweiller, around 5 years old, and has the best temperament you could ask for. Please share this video with anyone you may know that is looking to adopt a wonderful dog.

He is at the Animal Friends Humane Society in Hamilton, Ohio.

Zumaya's photo shoot with Love Mutt Photography!

Zumaya had his very own photo shoot held by Love Mutt Photography! The photo shoot was a blast, and Ashley and her husband Matt make a great team when it comes to getting the perfect shot of your pet. I was really surprised at how smooth it all went; they make taking a photo of your dog look easy!
Check out some of the pictures below of Zumaya's photo shoot with Love Mutt Photography. And make sure to check out the Love Mutt Photography website and blog!!!!
