The Monday Herd | Ct Pet photography

I suggest, well I encourage you with a lot of encouragement(ha! like that?) to listen to Led Zeppelin’s ‘When the Levee Breaks’ at a volume that dosen’t encourage sleep or relaxation……after all the song is about a gnarly storm and levee breaking.  It’s not meant to be quiet…… BLARE THAT PUPPY!

So onto The Monday Herd, I think I am going to make this an ongoing theme, ya know every Monday.  I figure most of you hate Mondays, love coming home from work on Monday and are tired of hearing… “Hi (insert your name)… we need to talk about your TPS reports”.  So what better to brighten your Monday then read The Monday Herd.  Nobody wants a case of ‘the mondays’ and if ya got em, well hopefully I got the remedy.    So The Monday Herd, will be a short blurb about an awesome song, or an awesome something and a little slice of life of what’s goin on with the…………………… you guessed it!  The Herd!

So we covered the sick-nasty song of the week up above.  Now onto the wild ones. (at this point I have already wrestled with Tech twice and listened to LZ 4 times, on repeat, incase you where wondering.)

I have a queen sized bed, It’s an ample size for me, I am not jolly green giant by any standard, but I do like a good size bed.  Tech likes the bed too.   Take a queen size, divide by two (oh well it’s still pretty big!  Yea keep reading)   Ok, now divide in two again, and, again.  Now this is the size of the bed I woke up on this morning.  4 pillars of doggie gristle and paws pushing into me.  He had almost taken over the entire bed.  So anyways (this was totally not planned) I opened my eyes and thought “oh yes finally there is some sun today” and who do I see staring right back at me.  Tech.  His head was on a pillow, just hangin out.  Now just imagine this, You wake up on a literal sliver of bed and you see these huge dough eyes staring at you saying ” HI!  GOOD MORNING! I AM ON THE BED TOO!”  You could hear his little, well big tail wagging. ……….. This Monday was awesome.

Went downstairs, Jake was still sleeping; I ate crispix(which rule by the way) and Tech helped clean dishes.

The Monday Herd.. (sorry I wrote a lot)

Spring Fling | Ct pet photography

“Ruff Lauren”, “Vera Wag”, and “Liz Claibone” (get it!?)  were a few of the designer dog clothes that some of the adoptable dog models were sporting at the Connecticut Humane Society’s Spring Fling event.

It was awesome to be a part of this event, every dog in the fashion show was up for adoption and I think a bunch of them ended up getting adopted which was amazing!  It was a full house, full of vendors, people looking to adopt and dogs………dogs everywhere!

We were there too with a booth upstairs, we met a lot of cool people as well as some pretty rad dogs.

So on to the good stuff..

The author of “Blarney the Dog” book series was there with, yes you guessed it, Blarney!  I guess Tech isn’t the only one with his own book!

I am a total slacker and missed some of the dogs that went for the fashion show, so I only the highlights, but all the dogs were awesome and adoptable!

I wish I had a better picture of his whole outfit, he was dressed as a biker with leather pants and all, his theme song was ‘Bad to the Bone’!

And last but not least, Diamond was rock’n out with some Liz Claibone.

Dont forget to enjoy life

Crazy busy.
That pretty much sums up everything, as soon as spring has arrived I feel as if everything and everyone has punched it into overdrive, or so to speak.  Everyday after work Tech and I have been riding upwards of 2.5 hrs; meeting some cool freak’n people along the way.  More and more requests are coming in and there are a few events that are upcoming that I have been trying to get ready for.

Crazy busy.

Hey, but don’t forget to enjoy life…..it’ll go by before you even know it.

Oh, yea and I updated the blog a bit……. hope ya like it.  If you don’t well……… pretend like ya do!

It’s the little things | CT pet photographer

Grocery shopping is on the bottom of my ‘things that I love to do’ list and on the top of the ‘crappy crap’ list.

It’s not that I don’t like the place, it’s that I hate the place.  I love to cook, I just can’t stand shopping for groceries.  Don’t ask why, i’ll just answer ‘cuz’.
Anyways while I am wandering the halls of frozen dinners, frozen corn, frozen everything I saw the most amazing thing ever.

Ice cream for dogs……just for dogs; Yea i know…. it’s the little things.

Cool! I feel the same way about grocery shopping…it’s a chore! You can make your own ice cream for Tech. Just freeze plain or flavored yogurt cups. They’re cheap and probably healthier? Just make sure the yogurt doesn’t contain aspartame or artificial sweetners. Stick to the natural stuff. My RR, Bison LOVES his frozen yogurt cups.

Tech is one handsome dude!

alexa - April 9, 2010 - 2:02 pm

Topaz gets these on occasion. She loves them. Tech is a lucky pup! 😉

JK - April 9, 2010 - 8:08 pm

Aren’t they lucky, dogs I meant!
If only they sell ice cream for cats and guinea pigs.. I’ll be very broke.
I can relate to the “like cooking but don’t like to shop for groceries” feeling…
