Calling all rescued Boston terriers and Boston terrier mixes! I am really excited to be sharing this project announcement with you all today. Pawsh Studio is partnering with Pinups for Bostons to shoot their 2016 creative calendar, the proceeds of which are ALL donated to Boston Terrier Rescue Canada (BTRC).
For those of you who aren’t familiar with BTRC, they are a wonderful registered charity organization with a mission “to provide safe, temporary refuge leading to a loving, permanent home for Boston Terriers through rescue, education, advocacy and compassion.” They do incredible work all year round.
In order to make this calendar a reality, however, we need 13 dog models (yep, a baker’s dozen of dogs!) So if you have a pup who would be interested in modelling here is what we are looking for:
– Boston Terrier or Boston Terrier mixes, preferably with a rescue story
– dogs who respond well to ‘sit’ and ‘stay’ (this doesn’t mean dogs who will sit still for hours or anything so drastic. We are merely looking for a 5-10 second stay, if possible)
– all shoots will be taking place in downtown Toronto at Pawsh Studio
– shoots will be commencing in February and will be hosted on Sundays only
Please include in your dog model submission your name, your dog’s name/age, a current photo of your dog, a list of their obedience training and a few lines about their story. Submissions can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org. Only successful applicants will be contacted.
These shoots are going to be a lot of fun! Your pup will be spoiled rotten with treats and bellyrubs and it is all for a truly great cause!
PAWSH PERK: Here is last year’s BTRC calendar if you’re interested!
Winter can be a bit drab here in Canada – it’s grey, it’s cold and it’s dark. In short, we could all use a little sparkle these days, including our pets, which is why it is a delight to introduce the new Sparkle Collar Collection from our friends at BlanketID.
Strong enough to weather the great outdoors, but pretty enough to add pizz-azz to any social or lounging event, the Sparkle collars bring bling and pet safety into focus. Each collar is designed to show off that ever important visible ID tag as well as your pup’s dazzling personality! Handmade, durable and pretty darn darling — and just imagine these on a dog at a wedding? Almost – can’t – handle – the – cuteness!
Happy New Year ladies and gentlemen! It’s that wonderful time of year once again when we all settle down with our notebooks to scribble down our aspirations and goals. This year I have only one for Pawsh Magazine — to have fun.
Last year we allowed ourselves to be pulled in too many directions at once and as a result we lost the sense of fun that comes from chattering away about our favourite furry friends. So this year, I am going to attempt to ‘take the pressure off.’ We will be focusing on fun, lively topics that inspire and bring joy to this blog. Short and sweet pieces that hopefully make some sort of small impact will be our go to recipe.
This blog will be taking on more of a hobbyist’s persona moving forward. After all, Pawsh started off as a passion project way back in the day and after a great deal of thought that is how we would like it to remain. So yes, we will be embracing fun, focusing on pieces that make us happy rather than pieces that will ‘perform well’ or have some sort of ‘design’ behind them and hopefully nurturing a more personalized approach to this ongoing discussion about pets.
They’re baaaaacccckkkk! It’s our favourite studio event of the year — Holiday Pet Mini Sessions! These photos make wonderful, quirky Christmas decorations to bring out each season or stupendous custom holiday cards to make loved ones smile!
There will be lots of treats for the dogs, festive music, fun props and laughter! It is the jolliest time of the year in the studio and we hope to see you there! In order to make every experience the best it can be the number of sessions available is limited and will be booked on a first come first served basis.

Happy Halloween! Last weekend Pawsh packed up and headed to Ottawa’s ‘Howl-o-ween Pugstock’ show, a wonderful fundraiser for and hosted by Under My Wing Pug Rescue. We ran a little photo booth, capturing sweet portraits of all the pug visitors and other furry friends! It was a delightful day and it was such a joy to meet so many adorable dogs and their lovely pet parents! Here are few of the portrait results…
How I wanted to bring all the canine visitors home with me! Thank you for hosting such a wonderful event Under My Wing Pug Rescue! And thank you everyone who dropped by! For ALL the pug and dog portraits, hop on over to our Pugstock Facebook Album!
