BOSTON TERRIER RESCUE CANADA 2016 CHARITY CALENDAR NOW AVAILABLE!

boston-terrier-rescue-canada-2016-calendar-front-coverLadies and gentlemen the 2016 Pinups for BTRC Charity Calendar is now available for purchase! For a $15 donation (all proceeds of which will be donated to Boston Terrier Rescue Canada) you can have your very own copy of this tea-party inspired calendar!

This was a really fun project to creatively direct and photograph — and for such a great cause! Inside you’ll find 12 different tea-party inspired vignettes of little Boston Terriers and mixes getting into all sorts of mischief!

Tremendous thanks needs to go out to my fantastic assistants, Sondra and Sloan, who helped to wrangle our 13 dog models and prop hunt. Also thank you to Simple Sugar Design, Bark’n Up The Green Tree, Pomtree, Bowzer Box, Amelia Biscuits and Julie’s Elegant Crafts for donating items for our set dressings.

Thank you to Kim and Laura from Pinups for BTRC for a) inviting me to shoot this project and b) being so awesome to work with on all the admin and design aspects (Laura Mark is the wonderful designer for this calendar!)

And lastly, of course, thank you to our wonderful dog models without whom this calendar could not exist! Your fine art print bundles (if you opted in for one) will be mailed out next week to you!

Toronto dog photographerWell, it has been a busy few months for Pawsh Studio as we photographed the 2016 BTRC Charity Calendar by Pinups for BTRC. We had a baker’s dozen of dogs visit the studio and all sorts of fun vintage props, pearls and puppies to play with! Today we would like to share a little sneak peek outtakes of our shoot (without giving too much away about the final product!)

DOG BEHAVIOUR: HOW TO DESCRIBE YOUR DOG’S PERSONALITY

toronto-pet-photographer-dog-magazine-personality-testI recently discovered a beautiful quote by American composer and teacher James Mumsford that perfectly describes the shih-tzu breed personality like a sweet little recipe.

“Nobody knows how the ancient eunuchs managed to mix together: a dash of lion, several teaspoons of rabbit, a couple of ounces of domestic cat, one part court jester, a dash of ballerina, a pinch of old man, a bit of beggar, a tablespoon of monkey, one part baby seal, a dash of teddy bear, and, for the rest, dogs of Tibetan and Chinese origin.” ~ James Mumsford (source)

This darling breakdown of traits perfectly describes Miss Rory, who is (believed) to be a shih-tzu and poodle muttlet. It got us wondering, what would your dog’s personality recipe read like? So, naturally, let us play a game and fill in the blanks! Leave your answer in the comments below!

My dog called _________, who is a ____________ breed is comprised of:

  • a dash of ____________
  • a couple of ounces of ___________
  • a pinch of ___________
  • a tablespoon of ___________
  • and a bit of  _____________

For example, Lucy’s recipe would read as follows:  “My dog called, Lucy, who is a spaniel and poodle mix breed is comprised of a dash of lamb, a couple of ounces of kangaroo, a pinch of toddler, a tablespoon of pushover and a bit of teddy bear.”

We would really, really, really love to hear your dog’s personality recipe so please share with us!

TORONTO DOG MAGAZINE: BACK TO BASICS

toronto-pet-photographer-pawsh-studio-golden-1-webJust a quick note to say thank you to everyone for your patience while Pawsh took a little hiatus this winter. We needed to get away and recharge, destress and seek balance, spend some time detatched from the constant computer time and really just hug our dogs to help get us reinvigorated about the Pawsh project.

Happily we will be returning to regular scheduled programming next week. The past several weeks have been spent cooking up new fun, bite-sized features for the blog that you and your pupsters can enjoy on the go!

We are so looking forward to getting back into chit-chatting about dog wellness, behaviour, fantastic products and living a dog-friendly lifestyle on a regular basis. We have missed it deeply. Thank you everyone again and again for sticking with us while we worked to rediscover our own ‘pawsh’ voice amidst the general noise of life and the media world. We can’t wait for next week!
