Santa's Helpers

yes, it's a bit early to post anything Christmas related. i mean we haven't even gotten to Turkey day yet!  but mom was asked to photog a fundraiser for The A.R.K. Animal Shelter yesterday & we had sit in for the warm-up!  you know how self-critical mom can be so she wants you to know, she doesn't think some of these are very good, but she got better as the day went on.  most importantly, she learned a lot just in 3+ hours of shooting so she's looking forward to more practice!
Here we are making Santa look good
And here is miss Donna who organized the event.  that's Jordan on the left who we baby sit when ma & paw are gone & his dad Barry
the Westies were a crowd favorite. they came straight from the groomers to get their picture taken
mom loved this yellow lab & his friend. she said it only took 1 shot to get their photo. not everyone was so easy.
and then there was Hank (we called him Hank the Tank).  a 2 year old chocolate lab that weighs 120lbs & still growing.
The Ark had some of their own kids who are up for adoption at the event & this Yorkie pair was pretty popular too!
mom wanted to make sure everyone remembers that The A.R.K. has more than just us woof-types.  here is 1 of 2 cats that came to see if they could find a furever home too!
and we couldn't leave out a success story!  here is Sally who was adopted from The A.R.K. a few years ago by a wonderful hooman!  Miss Sally was just the sweetest little thing!
big thanks to Miss Tisha for helping ma keep everything moving, but not too fast!  and TONS of wags & wiggles to Donna & all the girls at Hair Masters Unlimited in Chillicothe for holding this event. they raised a bunch of money for all our furry friends to find their furever home one day!  woof woof!
