Puppy Horse Super Bowl Commercial

You’ve probably already seen the 2014 puppy horse love commercial from Budweiser, but it’s so cute, we had to post it just in case you didn’t watch it (or perhaps you want to see it again). Enjoy!

We love this super cute commercial, but does anyone know what it has to do with Budweiser beer?

Amazing and Inspiring Dog Photographers

Loose Leashes – Ron Schmidt
dog photographersWe came across Ron Schmidt, dog photographer, a while ago and just love his work! As he states in his website: “Ron’s love of photography started at age 9 with an old camera that his Uncle Russ gave him for Christmas. That day, he snapped his first dog photo of his collie Nicki and hasn’t stopped taking pictures of since (but now he has a way better camera)! Ron’s whimsical images have captured the hearts of dog lovers worldwide. His images can be found on stationary, home décor, calendars and in his latest Random House children’s book Dog-Gone School.”

Dog Photographer (and more) – Tim Flach
dog photographerTim Flach has such an unusual, creative (and sometimes very funny) perspective in capturing dog images. We think his work is truly a piece of art. He’s a world renown photographer,  received numerous awards and has worked for top clients including National Geographic and The New York Times Magazine. As quoted in Intelligent Life (The Economist), “I like to use photography as a way of extending people’s experiences”. Eloquently stated on his website, “Possessing an enduring ability to challenge, surprise and provoke, Flach’s work provides a unique glimpse into the extraordinary nature and complexity of our relationship with animals.”

Senior Dogs Across America – Nancy LeVine
senior dogs across americaPhotographer Nancy LeVine has received a lot of press (including the New York Times) about her inspiring eight-year endeavor, “Senior Dogs Across America.” Most of the dogs she photographs are more than 15 years old, but LeVine says she makes exceptions for larger breeds, which often don’t live as long. Although she captures images of canines in their final days, LeVine says “Senior Dogs Across America” isn’t about the dogs’ deaths, but the dignity of their aging. As she states in her blog: “I saw how the dog does it; how, without the human’s painful ability to project ahead and fear the inevitable, the dog simply wakes to each day as a new step in the journey. Though their steps might be more stiff and arduous, these dogs still moved through each day as themselves — themselves of that day and all the days before.”

Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade Photos

It was amazing as usual, check out our photos in the gallery below:


It was a beautiful, sunny Saturday afternoon and Tompkins Square Park was packed to the gills. The 2013 Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade did not disappoint and yet again truly raised the bar on doggie Halloween outfits. Kobi, dressed as Indiana Jones (sans hat as he hates hats) and masculine, was ready to check out the scene.

After taking the subway and walking over to the park, we could see the crowds – dogs and owners in costumes were lined up around the fence to the area where the judging was taking place.  Kobi was having a ball meeting and sniffing all the other dogs, but was a bit concerned having to dodge all the humans that were around.

We saw loads of costumes outside the arena and then went into the inner part of the park where the judging is. This is just an amazing sight of dogs and owners, that have obviously spent a lot of time and thought into these costumes. Not to mention, it’s absolutely hilarious! Once you’re in the inner park, contestants for the Dog Halloween Costume Contest line up at least twice around the stage. We were there to check out the scene, not to win an award. Seeing all these costumes was award enough for us.

There was loads of press and as such we’ve included the photos here from other media outlets,which we think came out really well. As you can imagine, it’s hard to take great photos when there’s a huge crowd of people and dogs in a small space.
