Halloween was a success this year! There were so many local events to choose from, we decided to spotlight Halloween on the Mile in Coral Gables, Florida. The event was held at the Coral Gables Museum, and there was quite the turn out, over 40 dogs registered for the pet costume contest and they did not disappoint! There was everything from tiny clowns to superhero's, and they were all very well behaved pooches too :) All the pictures taken at the event is on FlickR page (CLICK HERE- to be redirected) We did our best to capture all the pups so if you see your fur-baby and would like a digital image, please contact us and we would be more than happy to email you a digital full size image.
Here is a sneak peak of the event...

Who said cats and dogs don't get along? Meet Kumbali the cheetah and his pal Kago, a yellow lab-mix. When Kumbali became separated from his mother, he was adopted by Metro Richmond Zoo in Virginia and introduced to one another and now they have an adorable bond, see for yourself :)

Another important cause we would like to support is Pitbull awareness month. Pitbulls are sadly very misjudged and are not given fur-ever homes because of the reputation they were given. We came across this beautiful photography series of rescue dogs named, Not A Bully, in which photographer Douglas Sonders showcases 'bully breeds' and shares beautiful photographs and stories of bully breed pups. Did you know that 22% of shelters euthanize Pit Bulls and a staggering 40% of shelter dogs are 'Bully Breeds' :( Please help create awareness.
We're trying to do our part to support these fur-babies, so if you or someone you know is a Pittie lover check out our Pit Love Collection...

Watch this sweet fur-baby tuck in this sleeping baby and once he knows the baby is covered he does a little yoga stretch and lays in the sun, after all taking care of babies is hard work!
