Every week a wonderful group of pet photographers from all over the world interprets a new weekly theme through their pet photography.  This week's theme is 'song'. My image is best viewed with the song I chose playing in the background,  so, before you scroll down, click play! In the words of Randy Newman, I give you... The Three Amigos! One for each other And all for one The three brave Amigos are we! These are my very own three amigos - Jack and Julie and their best little buddy Piper. The Spanish word 'Amigos' means friends and these three have been best buds since Piper met them as a little puppy over two year ago. I'm sure that they will be best buddies forever!  Everywhere they go invariably someone calls them the Three Amigos! Now let's see how other pet photographers interpreted this fun theme, starting with Pavlina Sanborn Photography, St. Augustine, FL.  Click on

Phoebe is a such a lovely spaniel - 10 years old and so loved by her family.   She is as sweet inside as she is beautiful outside!  

I first met Charlie when he was just a puppy.  Ever full of ENERGY, we were not quite sure he would want to sit still for his photo session.  Well, he proved us all wrong.  Could he be any more beautiful?  And we just had to add my two pups to the last photo as they have been such good friends since they first met!  

Meet beautiful Chompski - Mt. Diablo Veterinary Medical Center's July Pet of the Month. Chompski is a 6 year old female australian shepherd mix. She was chosen by the staff because of the very lengthy treatment she had to endure after a horrible rattlesnake bite on one of her legs. During the more than six week treatment period, Chompski was always upbeat and happy. How lucky for me that I was able to enjoy this lovely, happy dog during her fun photo session!  

I had a blast on Sunday photographing pets and their people at the Contra Costa Humane Society's Paws for a Cause Fundraiser.  In addition to a gorgeous day and hike, there were fabulous pet contests, great food provided by Rubio's of Pleasant Hill and Whole Foods, and booths manned and goodies provided  by amazing sponsors from Pet Food Express and Sports Basement. Big Dogs was another terrific sponsor of the event!  Pictures are available here and I am donating all proceeds from the purchase of these pictures to the Contra Costa Humane Society.  Here is a sneak peak at some of the furry goodness!

What a sweetie pie! Riley is just approaching his 4 month birthday and I had the totally fun afternoon photographing him! What a ham and so sweet. Can't wait to watch him grow up!
