What happens when you go to the Dogs…?

What happens when you go to the Dogs…?


I volunteer or sit on the board of a couple of charities.  It’s my way of keeping grounded and always giving back.

This is one of our participants in our Canine Calendar ‘Pin Up Pups’ to raise money for charity.  It had to be something a little different.  There are literally thousands of dog calendars out there.  Just check out all of the kiosks during the holiday season. 

So we set up several sessions at different locations.  Appointments were made and the fur was flying.  Working with animals can be a blast yet challenging.  But there is such unconditional love about dogs that makes photographing them a soulful experience. 

As I am a person of few words (unless they are sarcastic), here is Ms. November – DAMICA – Always Greytful (Greyhound)

  1. Not sure if I make a difference, but I try to volunteer with organizations focused on helping small business and the community. I love working with the local chambers of commerce and Rotary Club of Warrenton. Church is also a great place to find serving opportunities that can make an eternal difference!
    Thanks for all you do for this community Michelle!
