2015 PUGSTOCK: PAWSH PET PHOTOBOOTH

2015 Pugstock Dog Festival 2015 Pugstock Dog Festival 2015 Pugstock Dog Festival 2015 Pugstock Dog FestivalGuess what? Pawsh is returning to Pugstock 2015 in Ottawa this October and we’re bringing a lovely pet photography photo booth with us to capture all of those adorable pug wrinkles and mannerisms!

We had a fantastic time at this festival last year and learned a lot from our experience. We hope to apply those lessons to this year’s photobooth to make it even more fun for all who come out! The event takes place on October 25th 2015, but visit here for all the details.

THIS YEAR’S OFFER… $20 PUG PORTRAITS!
– two final retouched hi-res files (emailed directly to you within 7 business days)
– a beautiful contemporary white background
– the option for just your dog or you and your dog to be photographed

What we still need help deciding is how to dress up our set for these portrait sessions. Should we bring pumpkins and hay bales for a seasonal feel or keep it very minimalist to ensure a more timeless aesthetic?

Looking forward to seeing everyone again and to snuggling those adorable puglets!

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 ofย  _____________

For example, Lucy’s recipe would read as follows:ย  “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!
