So prepare yourself for 52 weeks of Izzie because it officially starts next week!

Ball Crazy

So i got a new camera today on Boxing Day sale, which means…
EVEN MORE PICTURES OF IZZIE!
You thought i took too many pictures of my Pug already? Well just you wait!
Anywho, here’s a picture i took while playing with aperture settings.

Winter Break!

So it’s been awfully busy around here due to finals and all but I'm finally free! Which means Izzie and I can do more fun things, even if we do work every day.
Anyways, we’ve not done much interesting lately, but we did receive a surprise in the mail yesterday! My lovely friend Allie over at Allie Pets (which by the way is a great place to get a portrait done of your beloved companions) mailed me a Christmas card along with some goodies! One of the goodies was this fabulous hand made fleece tug toy which Izzie just loves! So here’s a few pictures of her enjoying it.
Thanks again Allie!

The Great White North

Well… Sort of. It certainly doesn’t look so great or white outside, but we are fairly far north.
I ordered Izzie her Chilly Dog Great White North coat a week and a bit ago when it was really frigid and snowy. It finally came in today, though it was not so frigid and snowy out. Actually it was kind of nice out.
So even though i wish it was more wintery and awesome so i could use that to show how epic Izzie’s new coat is, i took pictures in the brown grass and small wind blown drifts anyways. All in fear of being slaughtered by Izzie’s adoring fans for no pictures, so here goes…
Dashing through the snow!
Oh eff you mum! Made me get stuck!
No pictures!
Pug on a drift
I can see the whole park from here!
Oh look, another dog!
Chaaaaarge!
It’s a huge hit. Izzie wasn’t even one bit cold (well her paws might’ve been a little chilly) and she wasn’t fussing with the coat at all. Her extra skin had some issues but that’s because of me shoving a collar on her and that kinda went funky. We’ll have to figure out a solution to that.
Anyways, a kind thanks and shout out to the folks at Chilly Dogs coats for getting this out to us so darn quick! We give the product two paws up! We’ll give it some more testing over the brutal part of winter and then give the coat another review!

Birthday Photo Shoot

So waaaaay back at the end of July i purchased a photo session with the lovely Tanya Plonka for Izzie's 2nd birthday. I know i know, ages ago, I've been holding out on you all; but being a university student and trying to scrape up money for that plus dog sports training I've just now managed to purchase the rights to the photos. So here's a few of my favourites with no commentary because I'm too lazy to bother!






Isn't she adorable? I swear she was a model in a former life, she loves to pose for the camera.
