Kali + Kobe + Kase

Kali is such a sweet girl. I imagine that living with two rowdy boys can be a challenge, but don’t feel too bad for her – she can hold her own! Doesn’t she have the sweetest face? And of course, pink is the perfect color for her…she’s most definitely a princess!

Kobe seems to be the clown of the family. He took advantage of our off-leash time outdoors to do several rounds of full speed zoomies. And wow, can he fly! He’s such a handsome boy and I love-love his little toothy smile.

Kase is the newest addition to the Woof Gang family and while there was a little concern that he might not want to participate in our photography game, he did great. In fact, I think he could easily have a career as a doggie model!

Don’t these guys have the coolest matching collars? Just a guess, but I bet you can find them at Woof Gang Bakery. ūüôā

Woof Gang Trio

If you’ve ever stopped by Woof Gang Bakery in Lakewood Ranch, then you’ve likely met at least one member of their welcoming committee – Kali, Kobe, and Kase. They take their jobs very seriously and do a great job of greeting their customers and fans. I had the pleasure of hanging out with this adorable trio last week and let me tell you, they are a super fun bunch!

I’ll be sharing more pictures soon, but in the meantime ¬†here are a few group shots…*smoosh* – they are just too darn cute!

Clydesdales | Sarasota Polo Club

I had a great time at the first annual Woof Gang Bakery Cup at the Sarasota Polo Club this afternoon. I can’t believe that after almost 6 years of living in Sarasota, I had never been to a polo match! Since I was very busy judging the Woof Gang Bakery contests, I didn’t get a chance to watch much of the action on the field, but will definitely have to make a trip back!

There were so many cool dogs who came out for this event – we had such a hard time judging. Congratulations to all of the winners! I’ll be posting more pictures soon, but thought I’d start with these beauties – the Lake Run Farm Clydesdales.

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 РShow 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 Pet Portrait Preview

I had a great time at the new Woof Gang Bakery in Ellenton this past weekend! The owners, Chris and Dana, are two of the nicest people you will ever meet – and even though their store has only been open for a few weeks, it’s clear that they already have a growing fan club. If you are looking for top quality pet foods, fun toys, and yummy treats, be sure to stop by and check them out! (Note, I highly recommend their soft and chewy pumpkin treats – my three spotty dogs give them two paws up.)

If you missed our recent pet portrait day at the Ellenton store, I’m going to be at the Woof Gang Bakery in Lakewood Ranch this Thursday, December 3rd from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm for their monthly “yappy hour”. This is always a fun event which features wine tasting, appetizers, $5 nail trims, and portraits by yours truly! WGB is located in the Publix shopping plaza of University Parkway in Lakewood Ranch. Hope to see you there!

Doggie Dining at Lakewood Ranch

Last Thursday I attended the first “Dining with Dogs” event at Lakewood Ranch – unfortunately I couldn’t stay for the whole event, but I did manage to snap a few pictures of two very cute pups while I was there – the first is Yogi, followed by Zeppelin…as in Led Zeppelin!

Every third Thursday of the month, participating Lakewood Ranch restaurants will offer special incentives for those dining with their doggies (in the outside patio areas) from 5:30 Р7:30 p.m. Last week the Humane Society of Manatee County and Woof Gang Bakery were also in attendance. Thank you to everyone who stopped by my Simply Spotted Photography booth, and congratulations to Tina for being selected as the lucky winner in my portrait session giveaway!
