Woof Gang Bakery Cup

The first annual Woof Gang Bakery Cup is this Sunday, January 24th! The event starts at 1 pm and will take place at the Sarasota Polo Club in Lakewood Ranch. In addition to some great polo action on the field, Woof Gang Bakery will be  hosting a dog parade during halftime and will have some fun contests with awards to the top two dogs in the following categories:

Best Tail Wagging – Dogs (not the handler) will be judged on the exuberance of their tail motion.
Most Original Costume – A class to judge the dog and/or handler on their entertaining attire.
Most Mysterious Heritage – A class for those lovable pets whose features cross all lines of breed characteristics. You will not find this class at Westminster.
Terrific Pet Tricks – Show off your dog’s talent to do anything. It does not have to be outrageous!
Best Vocal Performance – Move over Barbara, get out of the way Celine. This category features canine crooners with the most unforgettable talents.
Most Glamorous – Paris, Milan, New York, Dupont Circle. This category is for canines with class and a little bit of attitude. Watch out for the paparazzi!

This should be a really fun event and I’m looking forward to being one of the contest judges! For more information and directions to the Sarasota Polo Club, click here. Hope to see you and your pups there!

Woof Gang Bakery – Sarasota

I stopped by the Woof Gang Bakery in Sarasota last week to drop off a few of my gallery wrapped canvases, and I just had to take a few pictures of some of the “help”.

But first, the store – I *love* the decor! Recognize that pretty girl with the big smile up in the corner?

And here’s Tito – seriously one of the coolest kitties I’ve ever met. I think he must be the supervisor…

Then there’s Finn, who is one of the greeters. Isn’t he handsome!? My dogs would all like to know how they can apply for such a cool job…

Not pictured are Ozzie and Dixie, but they will be making an appearance here very soon! Be sure to stop by the Sarasota store and say hello to these guys (and to see some of my work!) – Woof Gang is located on Osprey Avenue (right off of Hillview) in Sarasota.

Meet Mysti

Saturday morning I had the pleasure of photographing Mysti, a 6 year old Lab/Border Collie mix, at GT Bray park in Bradenton. What a sweetheart! Even though it was incredibly hot, she was more than happy to romp around and explore. Mysti’s dad wanted some pictures that actually show some detail in Mysti’s pretty face, so I’m hoping that he’ll love some of these shots as much as I do. Thanks Kevin, for letting me capture your sweet girl!
