The First Annual Pet Palooza at Poet's Walk in Rhinebeck!

Jennifer Morris of Pre-furred Pet Sitters organized the first annual Pet Palooza, held last weekend at Poet's Walk in Rhinebeck, NY. Her intention was to both raise money for P.A.N.T., the Partnership for Animals Needing Transition, an animal welfare organization, AND to help gain more exposure for many of the pet-related businesses in the Northern Dutchess area during these difficult economic times. Some of the vendors present were, Melissa Crapser of Healing Paws, Pause Dog Boutique, Sirius Play Dog Training, Positive Paws Dog Training School, Russell Refuge, P.A.N.T., Pre-Furred Pet Sitters, Aussie Pet Mobile, Agway and Scenic Hudson. There was food provided by Spacey Traci, and music by 93.3. It was a huge success -- and I want to congratulate Jennifer for the amazing job she did! It was really a lot of fun for everyone who was in attendance!

Yappy Hour at Pause in Rhinebeck 6.12.09

What a great event! Laura went above and beyond to make her store and sidewalk outside her store a great place for both dogs and their people to hang together! Her new store is in such a great space, it really looks great. Thanks Laura!

Mickey's Mile Pics

I had a great time at Mickey's Mile! I'm still learning about events... but this is one that I would highly recommend and will definitely return to next year! When I first spoke with Camille on the phone, she brought tears to my eyes, and, gave me goosebumps. She lost her soul dog Mickey to a rare form of cancer 5 years ago, and turned her grief around and started this walk to raise funds for Canine Cancer research. The event has grown significantly each year, and everyone I met could not say enough good things about it. There were many vendors, a steel drum band, food, demonstrations, raffles, and of course, the walk with all the dogs. There were all sorts of dogs too... dressed up, au natural, dogs with cancer, humans with cancer, it was really a moving event in many ways and I feel honored to have been invited.

Beautiful Betty!

Betty is all wags, and would make someone a very nice co-pilot! For more on Betty, visit the Animal Farm Foundation Website


I'm so excited to announce that Printz Photography is going to be collaborating with The Unexpected Pit Bull on future projects to benefit the breed we both love! They have been making fabulous calendars for several years with the help of Photographer, Laura Moss, and though the calendar will remain exclusively her project, Printz Photography will be working with them to start some others!

If you don't have their 2009 calendar yet, you can purchase one HERE. Of course, all proceeds go to an organization that works to help this wonderful breed.

We just started a FB page together, so please, check it out and become a FAN and show your support! Thanks so much!

Sgt. Stubby has MY attention!

OMG, this is one VERY cute little guy! Sorry for some of the blurry shots, but he got a case of the zoomies and BOY is he FAST! Hopefully, blurriness aside, you can see the CUTENESS factor in Stubbs, is way over the red line! He's a little squat guy... with this adorable tooth that gets stuck outside of his lip from time to time.. Remember to double click on the images to see HIM full sized, and if you're interested -- please go to Animal Farm's website:

Meet Ramsey!

What an sweet, sweet boy Ramsey is! He's got a very soft, gentle nature with an inner comedian laying beneath it all... I believe he's around 10 months old, but he really has a lot of wisdom about him... If you're interested, he's at Animal Farm and you can fill out an application at
