Dog Photographer – makes my heart melt

Oh, how I wish I had a picture of Benny and me like this. I just couldn’t resist sharing this sweet moment. I couldn’t decide if I like color or black and white better, so I’m sharing both! What do you think? Which one do you like better?

Too precious! Every dog owner needs that special relationship on the wall.

Car Safety for Your Dog

One of my childhood friends had two standard poodles. The poodles were a major part of her family’s life, and usually accompanied her parents to our soccer practices and games. I was always fascinated (or perhaps bewildered) when the poodles would sit upright in the van’s bucket seats and wait to be buckled in—talk about obedience! Perhaps it is poodle habit, but these days, car companies are developing amenities to ensure that your dog is safe and comfortable during car travel.

This month, Bark magazine published an article about the most pet-friendly cars that included examples of cars that have pet safety elements. For example, the Toyota Venza–aka the “purebred DogCar”–partnered with Kurgo, a company that specializes in pet products for the car, to include an Auto Zip Line in the back seat. The zip line harness keeps dogs secure while allowing them to travel back and forth on the back seat. The Honda Element, advertised as a “man’s best friend’s best friend”, has urethane-coated floors, wide-open cargo doors on both sides, and a forthcoming package will include a dog bed, water bowl, and load-in ramp and rear ventilation fan, among other things.

According to the Traffic Safety Evaluation Guide, about 98 percent of dogs travel unrestrained in a moving vehicle. Another study found that animals are the third leading cause of driver distraction, greater than cell phone use and food consumption. Keeping your dog restrained in the car is important, and, as you’ve learned, it is possible to do this in a way that is both safe and enjoyable for your canine companion.

If you’ve got a small dog, you might want to consider Kurgo’s Skybox Booster. It’s one way to have company in the passenger seat while keeping your pup in one place! 


We hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend and if you’re traveling with your dog, consider some of these car safety elements. 

And, we’re glad to announce that Marcia is the winner of the Miss Lynn CD! Congrats!

I received the sweetest email from Monica stating that she would love to surprise her mother with a dog session of their two families for her birthday. What a great idea, right? We were a little nervous about the weather, but fortunately it stayed clear so that it could be a true birthday surprise. Our time together consisted of Monica, her mother, Precious, Zooey, Noelle, and Krystal – quite the dog family! I really had a fun time with them. Monica is such a giving person who is very involved with Nashville Humane and is actually quite the comedian as well – which always leads to a good time at a dog session! Enjoy a few favorites…


and I just had to share this one – I love Zooey’s ears. Her personality reminded me so much of Benny’s!

We thought this session was going to get rained out (imagine that, right?), but it held off. And I’m so glad it did! This was a group session and here are a few of my favorites. Meeting multiple dogs of various backgrounds – I really couldn’t have a better day!

Meet Taylor Mae and Riggs. I love the way Riggs is looking at Mary in this photo. And on the right, we have Ted and Kube. As I mentioned, I’m so thankful that the rain held off for this session. Later that evening Kube passed on. He had given a long, hard fight against bone cancer and I know he is greatly missed. Rest in peace, good boy.


Remember this cute one? This is Riley.


And I had to close out with these two, Ellie and Riggs. Comedians of the group!


Have a great weekend! Don’t forget the trunk sale going on this weekend and be sure to leave some blog love for our giveaway of the grooviest children’s music in town.
