Earthdog Adoptables

I recently had the pleasure of spending time with some of my favourite people and dogs at an adoption event held by Earthdog Terrier Rescue of Manitoba. Here are some of the adoptables…


Would you believe Eugene is only 5 months old… he will be one big gorgeous boy when full-grown.


Fiona is one very loving, sweet gal… the ultimate cuddle bug.


Lacey is a fun-loving gal… she would do great with an active family and would love a canine playmate.


Pumpkin is an energetic guy who gets along with everyone… cats, kids, dogs.


Ava is a calm, mellow girl who is larger than she appears in the photos. She is about 50 pounds or more.

Some of these dogs are long-timers in the rescue. Having known them, I can’t help but wonder why. They are such good dogs and would make wonderful companions for the right families. If you would like more info on any of these dogs please contact Earthdog Terrier Rescue of Manitoba.

Meet Nora – Available for Adoption

Nora is a very sweet, active, happy 9 week old Great Dane mix who is looking for her forever home. She is currently under the care of Earthdog Terrier Rescue of Manitoba and is doing very well in her foster home.

Such cuteness!





If you would like more info on Nora please contact Earthdog Terrier Rescue of Manitoba through their webpage.

Sweet Nora is a mix-breed Dane, not a purebred… but I thought this verse very cute. I have a feeling she will grow into it.

The Great Dane
Yes, it’s a Great Dane..
No, I don’t have a saddle for it.
Yes, it’s a house dog.
No, I don’t have a huge house.
Yes, it’s friendly.
No, it doesn’t eat that much.
I know it’s the biggest dog you ever seen.
It’s the biggest dog I’ve ever seen, too.

Happy News: Nora has been adopted!

Miss Daisy Needs A Home

Miss Daisy is a most beautiful girl… a Shar Pei / Shepherd mix.
Miss Daisy

Found alone and homeless on the streets of Winnipeg she is now safe and waits for a new family at Winnipeg Animal Services.

But, the wait has been long.

Daisy first came into the shelter way back in April, almost three months ago. That is a long time for an active girl to have to wait and be patient. Daisy does have Entropion in both eyes which needs to be addressed but otherwise she is a healthy, sweet, friendly gal, who loves to play and loves being with people.

It is difficult to understand sometimes why certain dogs are passed on by. It certainly baffles us at the shelter in Daisy’s case. She is a most awesome dog who simply needs a home.

“All great friendships start with a paw-shake. Reach out.”

Update: Happy News! Daisy is adopted!!

Pet Photography Session – Aaron

“Too cute for words”… that’s what jumps to mind when first seeing Aaron. I met up with this dapper little guy and his family at Maple Grove Dog Park here in The Peg. This was my first experience at this park and I fell in love with the many winding trails weaving in and out of the forest area. I also fell completely head over heels for this darling long haired Chi.

Aaron came to Cindy and Jeff as a foster but it was soon realized that they were indeed his forever family. This cutie has very poor vision and is hard of hearing, but one would never guess that by watching his antics. He is one happy, endearing little fellow who very much adores his “mommy” and “daddy”.
















Thank you Cindy and Jeff… it was such a pleasure meeting and photographing this sweet little man.


Pet Photography Session – Serena

Meet Serena, a twelve year old Cocker mix whose energetic happy nature belie her years. The venue for this photo session was the lovely St. Vital Park in Winnipeg. The day was perfect… sunny, warm, wrapped in all the good things that spring has to offer.




Such cuteness… I love how her grey fringed ears frame that sweet face.







Getting together with Cindy and Jeff is always a pleasure. This couple is amazing… their love for animals apparent in everything they do. Serena first entered their life as a rescue but now has permanent residence status in both their home and in their hearts.
