Charlie Bear here. October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, the time when shelters promote adoption in full force, but I’d say they’re always promoting adoption in full force. And why wouldn’t they? Shelters are overcrowded, with many animals in need of loving homes. (The sooner all my canine friends get out of those caged environments the better. — Hey, we’re all brothers.)
There’s a woman my mom knows who does BEAUTIFUL work photographing shelter dogs. Her name is Angie Hunt. She adorns the dogs with a bit of fluff or bow tie or feather boa…whatever will make them appealing to those who come upon their photograph when looking to adopt. The name of her book is “Snapping Shelter Dogs” and you can find it here: http://amzn.to/VIJ81p Mom downloaded it and devoured the gorgeous photographs and the wealth of information Angela Hunt shares about photography, and so much more. It’s a fabulous gift book for a dog lover.
My Mom Peep says it was my picture that made her fall in love with me. This one:
Then there was this one, too:
Angie Hunt didn’t take these, my foster mom did. I have an impish little face and a compact little body to go with it. No wonder Mom and Dad Peep fell in love with me. But seriously, a lot of dogs need a bit of help and Angie does just that. Thanks, Angie, for all you do to help my brothers (and sisters too). Woofs to you!
So do any of you know a shelter dog? Share with us….inquring minds like to know!
