Lots of "stuff" to share!!!!

First I just "read" the news that I made the DT for Dustin Pike! This is very exciting! I absolutely adore his images! So you'll be seeing lots more Dustin Pike stuff from me very soon!

Second, please be sure you stop by and play with us at the Digital Tuesday Challenge Blog. All you need to do is follow the challenge with a digital image somewhere on your card, there are tons of freebies around! We've got great digital prizes for those that participate, and who couldn't use more stamps?

Third, we have returned from yet "another" horse show, this one was a bit smaller than we are used to, but the clients seemed to have a good time and did well in the showpen, everyone came home with something good. While we were there, a photographer had a booth set up for pet pictures...so I went grabbed my hounds of "h.e.double hockey sticks" and headed up... she wanted to put them in a bathtub she had found in Texas and was anxious to use it...so first up were the heelers...now if you've ever, EVER dealt with animals and photography it can be a "grueling" process...I've done plenty of pictures with horses (win pics) and trying to get the animals to sit still and "smile" can be harrowing at best...then start multiplying that by the # of animals in the picture and well...you get the jest of it...LOL...so first up were my red heelers Hank (left) and Ruby (right) and once I got them settled in the tub...you are looking at a 2 minute photo shoot...star models they were...HOWEVER the Jack Russell (JR...how original for a name I know...I DIDN'T name him, that's what he came with) proved to be 4 DIFFERENT photo shoots and a 1/2 hour later, why one SMALL dog took sooo much longer than 2 Larger dogs is beyond me...but the photographer was oh.so.patient and I think our photos turned out oh.so.cute. (in fact the photographer used the Heelers photo for her display table...mmm, proud fur-mommy moment). So I thought I'd share, I don't have any 2 legged children, so I'll share my 4-legged ones!


Thanks for joining me today! Be sure to stop by tomorrow, I'll have a cute little gift type project up for the Digital Tuesday Challenge!

Hi there,
love your four legged friends pics. And it was worth the effort to get JR's shot (hmmm...should I have JR and shot in the same sentence??).
My pooch thinks it's her right to be in every photo that we take...lol**

Congratulations! Your doggies are so very cute! I'm surprised you were able to get the jack russell to stay in the tub, they are a handful but very, very cute!
