And the weekend is almost upon us. Here in Sydney we’re getting a 3 day weekend – yay! – and I’ve got everything crossed for some sunshine this weekend! I’ve also got my fingers crossed that this little guy finds a home! Meet Dino, a super special boy from the Sydney Dogs & Cats Home:
Dino is such a character, he is full of energy and just loves to play! Dino is a clever little boy who would benefit from obedience training. Dino is deaf but would absolutely love to learn sign language as part of his training. He loves to learn and will do anything to please you. Dino will be fantastic company for another young dog and would make an ideal family man. (Dino’s Details: Gender: Male, Breed: Fox Terrier X, Age: 1 year)
Who could say no to that gorgeous face? He looks like the perfect combination of gentle hugs and fun! What a great difference he would bring to any home. If you think you can offer Dino a loving home please contact the Sydney Dogs & Cats Home for more details.
Sure he was a tabloid favourite…known for staying out too late, drinking way too much champagne and spending far too much time with Charlie Sheen…but with that smile there was never any question about Doggert being crowned Colgate’s face of 2012. Smile on, Doggert.

Whenever Penelope felt bad about living under the couch, she would think of the boy wizard Harry Potter. He went on to save the world and he started under the stairs! Off to Hogwarts Penelope…

Hands up who spent the last hour going through adorable Husky shots? Ahhh… it’s a tough job, but someone has to do it. But I’ll have to admit, even better is the job of actually spending an afternoon with these guys and snapping their equally adorable pictures! Well, that’s just what Melbourne based photographer, Bec, from TriGr Happy Photography – sound it out, you’ll get it… – gets to do. Lucky girl. Check out her amazing work below…
This is one of my favourite shoots with Sasha, a beautiful Husky, and Jackie, a Husky Cross. Jackie was so funny, she is a very quirky happy girl who always looks like she’s smiling. During the shoot she was so funny, dog treats didn’t work, but get the dry crackers out and she would do anything. This shoot shows a great result of letting them do their thing, capturing a moment, and allowing the clean background to let the beauty of the subject stand out.
What’s the best thing about being a pet photographer?
Spending time with the animals, nothing beats hanging out with these creatures that are just full of personality.
What is your number one tip for people trying to photograph their own dog?
Don’t force them. Take your time. You will get much more natural expressions if they’re comfortable and not being shouted at to look at the camera constantly.
Why should people get professional photos of their dog?
These days pets are considered more a part of the family than they have ever been, you get portraits of your kids so why not your pets? For some people their pets are their kids! [Ed Note: Guilty]. Whether it’s just a framed photo or a big canvas display, there is no better way to keep their memory alive forever than to have professional pictures of the highest quality.
What’s your photography philosophy?
It’s been said so many times before, but I think less is more. A bright white (or pitch black) background can bring out more of the subject’s beauty.
