Loose Leashes - Ron Schmidt We 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 Tim 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 Photographer 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."

Are you thinking of adopting a dog to bring home to the kids but are not sure which breeds can be considered safe? Because as much as we love dogs and their company, some breeds do not mix well with children. It could be due to several factors like personality traits, dog sizes, aggression, and more. What is clear is that these pooches are the ones to watch out for the most and should not meet your kids.
If you want to adopt a new dog, there is a chance that you may be conflicted between a big dog or a small dog, am I right? This decision can be tough to make for some. So, why not make it easier on yourself and consider a medium size dog instead?
Did you know that dogs are just as much at risk of getting skin cancer as we are? Seriously! Most of them are strongly susceptible to skin damage from sunburns, but not many people think that. And with the temperatures steadily rising, as we get closer to the spring/summer seasons, this can also mean more visits to the veterinarian if we are not careful.
Are you looking for a way to keep your overly-excitable pooch distracted and busy when you are too busy to play with them? If this is the case, then what you need is a dog treat dispenser. This is because boredom is one of the many reasons that lead to dogs chewing up furniture or even acting overly aggressive sometimes.
Are you trying to figure out what is the best dog breed to bring home to your family? There is no question that dogs make great companions, and if you have kids they are a great way to help teach them the value of responsibility and unconditional love. The tricky part is choosing the right dog to blend in with your family lifestyle, and if you are looking for some medium sized dogs, then you have come to the right place!
