Gypsy, Paco & Elvis on a Saturday Morning

Tammy Wolfe - Love and Caring at the Animal Lodge!

Vegas is a 190 lbs. Great Dane who was paralyzed from a cancerous tumor that was removed from his spinal cord. He spent some quality time in the underwater treadmill while Tammy Wolfe gently massaged his back legs. Three very large (did I mention that they were very LARGE) black Newfoundlands had some exercise time in the hydro pool. Of course, there was Henry and Tigger that needed some massage time in-between the other patients.

This is a standard morning for physical therapist - Tammy Wolfe. Tammy Wolfe is not just a physical therapist who specializes in canines at the Animal Lodge but also a kind heart that loves all of her furry "patients". Tammy truly loves every minute of her job. My morning was filled with smiles and laughter - Thank you Tammy and Jessica for letting me share a slice of your wonderful life...Enjoy the pics!

Cowbelly Workshop

In September, I had an opportunity to attend the Cowbelly Pet Photography Workshop ( in Seattle with 12 other women from the US and Canada. It was a weekend full of laughter, sharing, scratching bellies (specifically Fergie's belly - see last photo), and of course, taking pictures. Pet photographers just starting their biz and some happily on their way joined together to spend the weekend together.
The highlight of the weekend was taking pictures of some adorable pugs down by the Puget Sound. Pugs are such characters - little guys with a lot of spunk and love to go around. Walter, Dizza, and Frank (the one-eyed rescue pug) spent the afternoon with us down by the water on a beautiful Seattle day (a rain-free day!).

Jamie Pflughoeft (she rocks!) of Cowbelly Pet Photography ( and her dog, Fergie (see pic below) lead us through a whirlwind of awesome information during the weekend. Jamie is a fantastic, sweet person and an incredible pet photographer. ;-)

I will be posting all of the women pet photographer's websites that attended the Seattle weekend on my website: in my Links tab shortly.

Wag N' Trail

Is it a Meow day or a Woof day? Well the Wag N' Trail fundrasier was definitely a Woof day! I decided to join the dogs last weekend for a 1.5 hike that was filled with photo spots, ice cream and plenty of water for the pooches. The Dumb Friends League did a most excellent job on the event. Here is one of pooch who "owned" this water dish at the end of the hike - Love those ears (cold or hot ears? you be the judge?)
