2nd Grade Dog Show Hosted by Mrs. Peterson

Today Sheeba and I attended our son Frank's grade school for a dog show hosted by 2nd grade teacher Mrs. Peterson. Pet awareness is taught by Mrs. Peterson along with her own Sheltie that she brings to class every Thursday. Her shelties are trained by her and are shown in agility competitions.

Before the show each child in her class did a report on a breed of dog that they chose. So they were more than excited for all the dogs that showed up for today.

First up was a demonstration from the local Police department. They brought along Lucy who is herself a K-9 police officer. I believe you can see her badge in the photo. She demonstrated along with her human partner, her abilities to sniff out drugs and what she does when she finds them. The children loved her and were amazed at how accurate she was.


Then Mrs. Peterson delighted the children by bringing them all out onto the field and using their own bodies as an agility course. This is one of Mrs. Peteson's Shelties.



One of the bigger dogs on display...a gorgeous St Bernard.



Then there was this little cutie, a Ruby colored Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Reba. Perfect name...doncha think?



Here's Mrs. Peterson's other Sheltie who demonstrated how she can put her scent on a numbered toy....looked like a little dumbell....and then this Sheltie can pick out the right number when scattered among a whole group of similar looking toys.



Once again, this Sheltie shows off her agility.






How about this Gordon Setter...? Beautiful....



Now comes the Irish Setter.



And a handsome German Shepard.



This puppy Papillon is Mrs. Peterson's newest member of the family and she came to show off what she can do after just a couple weeks of training.

My Doxie Has Moxie









Well, I finally had some time to play and turn Abby into a little bit of art to show off her personality. I had some real fun making the above tag, that I was able to turn out on loads of kool items. Click on the t-shirt and you'll be able to see what we've turned it into.








Keep in mind that when I do a photo shoot, chances are that I will take photos of your pet and put him/her into his/her own bit of art also.

Dachshunds Abby and Hoover



After going over the photos of Abby and Hoover, I realized that I just didn't get the two of them together. One would sit and look great and the other would would jump out of the shot. So in my digital darkroom, I took over and was able to put them both in the same shot. I think they look great together.


I also added Dachshund to my Mom, Dad, Diva and Dude graphic. Here I've used it on a new product we are offering - The Sigg Bottle.

Abby & Hoover Photo Shoot

Today was a gorgeous day for a photo shoot and I had the pleasure of working with two of the cutest dachshunds...Abby (red dachshund) and Hoover (black dachshund). At first, I thought Hoover was going to be the camera hog as Abbey seemed to be much shyer. But, that didn't last too long...I got some great shots of Hoover as Abby started to warm up. Then she seemed to smile and ham it up.
