When I originally did the pre-session consult for this shoot Jack and Alfie were the only resident dogs. On the day of the session I turned up to find they had just bought a puppy – Milo. Unfortunately my back was out so I had to make massive apologies and told them I’d be in touch to reschedule. A year and some house renovations later we finally went ahead with the shoot.

Milo is far from a puppy anymore, but he’s grown into a gorgeous dog who LOVES having his photo taken!

Jack is the eldest. He loves chasing water so that’s why he looks a little bedraggled in most of the photos!

Alfie is just adorable. He would’ve happily swapped the posing for cuddles though.

They live opposite a dog park. Lucky boys!

Jack loves his ball. And make no mistake, it’s his ball!

When all excess energy and camera shyness was well and truly burnt off, it was time for a group shot… such little cuties.

Remember Bamboo whose photos I posted a couple of weeks ago? [AKA Miss April in the 2013 Rescued Bull Breeds calendar.] She ended up at the pound with her five tiny puppies. Even though Fetching Dogs had Kimono and five of her pups at the time [and Quidditch and their own four dogs!] they made room for this little family.

Grey’s siblings and Bamboo have all been adopted, but this little guy hasn’t had any applications for some reason. How the hell not, he’s ADORABLE!!

If you’re interested in adopting this cheeky little munchkin please fill out the enquiry form here. There are more photos of him there too.

Lynn from Happy Paws Training Treats has always been very generous with her donations to my fundraisers so it’s nice to finally be able to return the favour. Recently one of her family members died in a tragic car accident and her husband is still in the ICU fighting for his life. Auctions are being held to raise funds for the children and pets during this difficult time. Full details are on the Help the Hooler Family Facebook page. Please bid if you can.

A few weeks ago, when there were still 13 weeks left in the year, Serena from Pretty Fluffy invited me to take part in a project. In her words:

“It’s called The 13 Project and it’s all about little ways we can help animals in our daily lives. I’m getting bloggers and animal lovers from across the globe to be involved to help as many dogs as we can.

The premise is simple, with 13 weeks left of 2012, you list 1-13 goals you’d like to achieve to help animals. The whole idea is even the simplest of tasks can make a big difference in a dog’s life and no matter if you have time for one goal or thirteen you can take part!”

As Serena said in her email, I’m already doing a lot of things, but there’s no harm writing them down and adding a couple more. So here goes!

1. Share Axel, Quidditch, Caprica and Dusk‘s profiles [pictured above] to help them find forever homes by Christmas
2. Sell all my 2013 fundraiser calendars before Christmas
3. Get Bull Breeds in Need page fans to 5,000 to help reach more people
4. Get Who’s the Bully? page fans to 2,000 to help reach more people
5. Take photos of the Fetching Dogs looking for homes
6. Make Fetching Dogs Christmas cards
7. Donate a photo session, canvas and custom-made collar to a Fetching Dogs fundraiser raffle
8. Help organise a bull breed only training workshop with all funds raised going to Fetching Dogs
9. Give Arctic Breed Rescue images to use in their 2013 calendar
10. Give The Unexpected Pitbull images to use in their 2013 calendar
11. Auction some Ruthless Leather samples and donate the money to Fetching Dogs
12. Plug the secret project I worked on over winter at the end of November when it’s not a secret any more! [This!]
13. Foster another bull breed puppy… or two… am I insane??

I’d love everyone’s help with the first four. All it takes is liking and sharing, it’s not hard, but it will make a difference.

Thanks heaps to Serena for doing this project. Lots of good karma coming your way!

Caprica is the last of the three Fetching Dogs baby mommies to be photographed [the other two were Kimono and Bamboo]. She was a stray that found herself heavily pregnant at Taree pound and it was touch and go whether she could get into foster care in Sydney before she whelped. She did though and then gave herself a couple of days to settle in before giving birth to eight beautiful healthy puppies. That was back in July, so she’s well and truly ready to find a wonderful forever home of her own now.

Caprica is such a fun little dog. Really food motivated and so eager to please. She’s going to make someone a wonderful pet. Her and her puppies profiles are on the sooper dooper new Fetching Dogs website.
