SHAMELESS PRIDE FOR MY DOGS (or good news about me)!

I had a couple of article and photo opportunities with Lowcountry Dog Magazine in May for the June issue and am excited to share them here!

The first feature introduces newcomer Veterinary Emergency Group to the Mount Pleasant area. Having been there to prepare the article and seen the facility firsthand, I can honestly say I am glad to know they are there if we ever need them - and it's true 24/7 care, holidays included! Click here to read all about this new kind of care (page 18).

 

The second article is related to LowcountryPetFixers.org, our new low cost spay/neuter voucher program for pets in Berkeley County SC. Thank you to LCD for the print space and a forum to share the news! Click here to read the article, browse to page 40.

My almost 10-year-old Roux gave me some "agita" in May when we had a biopsy performed on a lump. Cainhoy Veterinary Hospital was incredibly accommodating of my schedule as we were heading out of town for my niece's graduation - Roux came through his anesthesia like a [stoned!] champ and was an absolute trooper during his recovery. We never even had to consider using a cone! He did have a somewhat resistant infection so he continues his antibiotics for another 10 days or so, but I tell you I do understand that the anxiety is palpable when our furries are facing the prospect of something potentially terrifying. THE GREAT NEWS is it was NOT cancer and instead was just something inflammatory. The relief I felt when I received the report was indescribable. Thankfully, I did his unboxing reel for the Untamed Pet Company (Instagram) the day before so I didn't have to photoshop his puffy post-op face in all of his pics! Once he's all healed up, he'll back back in front of the camera.

 

EVENTS

Some time back, my friends at Hallie Hill Animal Sanctuary asked if I would photo candids at their Animals, Art and Automobiles fundraiser on Mother's Day. If you'd like to get a sense of this event, you can view the album here. Another volunteer was able to photo the cars as they arrived, thankfully. This was my second time attending/shooting and it really is such a fun event with a great mix of activities - fun cars (and this year there were some VERY cool cars with a LOT of effort put into their "personalities"), beautiful art, vendors, rescues and shelters and DOGS! As they are now underway with construction to build The Hub at Hallie Hill, these fundraisers become even more important so when you see one pop up locally, please try to support it somehow, even if it's just through helping to spread the word. Their next one is coming up on June 10 - click here to view details for Putting for Paws! My husband (you know him as "Santa Jack") will be running the putting contest for this golf event so go say hi!

Look at the paint effort, y'all!

 

CLIENT SESSIONS

Bring me all the beautiful people and their pets! While the early part of May was pretty busy with the Untamed Pet Company project, and then I had a week away later in the month, I still was blessed to work with so many wonderful clients and their pets, everything from puppies to seniors! Following are a few representative pics from the month.

What a goof!

 

SHELTERS/RESCUES

My shelter work now totals 216 adoptables through the end of May across seven local groups. Please adopt or foster if you can. The animals need you.

I'd like to also post here a special foster dog named Buckshot - special because he's a VERY GOOD BOY! But the glut of adoptable animals is so vast around here with more dogs flooding in daily, that he seems to be getting overlooked in foster. He is available through Carolina Coonhound Rescue - I've met him, he's a sweetheart! He's 4 years old, sooooo friendly and outgoing, loves other dogs, cats and kids, is housetrained, knows some commands, LOVES his toys and just look at him! He's so easy on the eyes too. Help me find Buckshot his forever family?

 

LOCAL BUSINESS PLUG!

I wrapped up my commercial project with Untamed Pet Company and am so excited for their upcoming website refresh and new product launch. ICYMI, they are a subscription service, but here's the twist: unlike some others, they only curate the healthiest treats and chews for your pets! No overseas junk or cheap rubber toys or five minutes of playtime. Nope! Even their packing peanuts are vegan and fully digestible! Once they are ready to promote their new site and SAFE Harness, I'll share it too. Meanwhile, you can check out their site or follow their socials as they have wonderful things in the works for our pets. You can also hit their site and subscribe to save on your ordering. You'll thank me later.

REMINDERS - GENERAL

My current event schedule is always posted on this page as well as my main page. If you don't feel like checking back from time to time, you can subscribe to the mailing list. I only send ONE email per month (and sometimes, not even that!). You can unsubscribe at any time, and I never sell your information to partners or third parties.

My session calendar does fill quickly and I do encourage reserving your space about 3-4 weeks out from when you want your session. This allows you the most opportunity to secure a preferred date/time of day and to have sufficient time for grooming appointments, etc. As of 5/31/24 my next available weekend session slot is the morning of 6/29/24. June is pretty-well committed locally and with my Northern VA clients, but if I had to fit in a studio session, I could do so mid-June; otherwise, the month is obligated. I'm now focused on scheduling July through the fall months. Reminder, I don't shoot outdoors in SC in July and August so those months are studio sessions ONLY. Scheduling a rain date is also recommended at the time we reserve your session (no charge to hold the 2nd date).
