This past Sunday I had the wonderful privilege of having a booth at the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ event at the gorgeous Smolak Farms in North Andover, Ma. The day was absolutely picture perfect – and the best part? The event was put on by Treadwell’s Ice Cream – So there was plenty of the planet’s best ice cream to go around! (What’s that you say? You want apple cider donut ice cream? Yup, they have that.)
The sun was shining, the frozen treats were delicious and the four-leggers were abundant! What more could one girl ask for?!
This event is put on annually to benefit the one organization that is closest to my heart – the MSPCA at Nevins Farm. I was absolutely honored to be able to take part in such in supporting such a wonderful cause.
I got to meet so many wagging fuzzbutts who came to visit the Dog Breath Photography booth that my head was spinning with joy. Would you just look at these faces? … (caution: there is a real risk of contracting ‘cute overload’ syndrome if you continue on from here. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!) 🙂 ….
Oh, hello gorgeous! …
How about these little sweethearts with the expressive eyes? …
I have to say – there is a hidden treasure in the background of this photo. I noticed it when I was editing and it warmed my heart. 🙂 As if the two in the foreground weren’t show stopping enough! ..
My favorite organization on the planet. The MSPCA was present at the event with a booth run by some of it’s most wonderful and dedicated volunteers..
And this guy! My best-looking customer of the day saying ‘HELLO! Where’s the treats?!’ ..
I’m a sucker for a Boxer smile …
And what about this outrageously beautiful little love? …
oh, those eyes! ..
Oh, hi. Nice to meet you little goober! ..
and two sweet little fuzzy friends …
I even met some two-leggers that were pretty wonderful! ..
Cleaning something good off your nose? ..
Attack of the blurry bobble head puppy!! …
Smolak Farms is absolutely breathtaking. I grew up picking Apples in their orchards as a little girl. The smells on the farm remind me of my childhood – who knew I would be back decades later with my very own business! …
Pittie smiles make me melt ..
Would you look at this next face? What a dream! …
A canvas print of one of my favorite images at my booth. This gallery wrap canvas showcases just one of the many gorgeous products you can make from your images when you book a Dog Breath photo session! ..
And no dog day is complete without a pair of ridiculously good-looking black labs..
Since the event was such a smashing success – I met and photographed over 80 different dogs that day! That left me with 120+ choice images to share from the event – which in turn means, in order to post all the images – the blog will be split up into three parts! This is only the first part of the exciting series! So never fear! If your dogs photo isn’t here you will find him or her in part 2 or 3 which will both be published within the next week! Stay Tuned!
It was such a pleasure to meet all of the wonderful friends (2 legs AND 4 legs alike!) that stopped by the Dog Breath booth. I can’t thank Treadwell’s Ice Cream – the event planner/sponsor – enough for including us in this exciting event!
If you see your dog’s photos here, but would like to see if there are more – don’t hesitate to drop me a line! I would be happy to put up a private viewing gallery for you to check them out in. 🙂 firstname.lastname@example.org
Part 2 of ‘Dog Days of Summer’ with more fuzzy faces than you can count will be coming sooner than you can say ‘TREATS?!’ …..
