So it’s going to be even more quiet around here for a while….. I’m finishing up some last-minute things before we pack and head to Mexico! Dustin and I will be joining up with Pet Project Rescue in Cancun for a spay/neuter clinic. Cats And Dogs International is working with Isla Animals and Coco’s Cat Rescue to put on a huge clinic, (projected to do over 800 sterilizations) where volunteer vets will be training about  50 local Mexican vets to do low-cost, safe, high-volume spays and neuters. We’ll be documenting the last half of the week, much like I did at Red Lake Rosie’s last year, doing some volunteering at the clinic, and taking a much-needed mini vacation for a few days afterward. I’m really excited for this…. it should be an intense, amazing experience! So to everyone waiting on galleries and products, thank you for your patience in waiting just a bit longer  :)

Here’s a sneak peek of one of the things I’ve been working on today…. the 2012 Minnesota Sheltie Rescue calendar!

Huh. My “blog every day” thing isn’t going that well. If they perfect cloning I might need to get in on that. Two of me would get twice as much done, right?

Anywho, it’s high time I blogged Sidewalk Dog’s Sushi With Your Poochie event from August! (Even though it’s revealing how I’m sitting alone at my computer at 10:15 on a Friday night. And am still 2 months behind in blogging. But I digress) We had another fabulous turnout at the Tiger Sushi 2 patio. A huge storm rolled in about halfway through, but patrons and their pups braved the downpour and lived to tell about it. These events are always so fun…. seeing familiar faces (both human and canine) and meeting new ones, and finishing the night with some great sushi…. what could be better?

Charming little Gizmo did a Combo Session this summer, both in-studio and on-location. He’s a rescue from Safe Hands and his mom and dad are just head over heels for this guy! And really, who couldn’t love that smile?

When you open up today’s paper, turn your Target circular to page 27, and enjoy the Cavalier in the cauldron full of dog food, and the Cav mix on the bed. Then, of course, head down to Target and pick up all your pet supply needs! (Seriously, how cute are those cupcake toys?? Gracie’s birthday is coming up, I think I just found what to get her…..) Thanks, Target! It’s always great to work with you  :)
