May 4-10 is National Pet Week.  If you book a session during that week, I will discount the sitting fee 10%.  The weather is getting better so this would be a great time of the year to have your pet’s photo taken.  Just drop me an email at

Good Golly Miss Molly Belle

4 - Molly official portraitI’ve been taking pictures of so many dogs lately that I thought it was about time I included pictures of one of ours.  It’s Molly’s 4th birthday today and I found a beautiful pink bow to put in her hair.  Actually it’s a stretchy dog collar but I thought it looked rather cute as a headband.  She acquiesced once I bribed her with a homemade peanut butter cookie.  Molly loves those cookies so much I decided to share the recipe here.  Doesn’t she look adorable?

Peanut Butter Dog Cookies
1 cup oats (regular not quick oats)
2 cups flour (rice flour can be used if your dog needs to eat wheat free)
1 cup chunky peanut butter
1 cup water
1 slightly beaten egg
1/4 quarter cup canola oil

Cookies CollageMix together to form slightly sticky ball.  Roll out between two pieces of waxed paper. Cut with  cookie cutter. (I use a 2″ dog bone shaped cookie cutter and make about 36 cookies).  Heat oven to  350 degrees.  Bake on cookie sheet for 20 minutes.  Flip cookies, bake another 20 minutes.  Cool.  Refrigerate – will keep for about 10 days.  I freeze several packs.

Thornton Rocks!

LOGO THORNTON WITH STICKI stopped by my favorite nursery today – Egan Gardens – to pick up some geraniums and ended up spending a good half hour on an impromptu photo shoot with the cutest 12-week old Scottish Terrier.  The nursery’s owners recently lost their Scotty who had been a well-loved fixture on the grounds, so now Thornton (such a big name for such a little guy) will be learning the ropes and greeting the customers.  He is absolutely adorable.  He’s already finding his way around and has become buddies with the resident cat.  Thornton is a busy, curious guy and I can’t wait to go back for more plants and watch him grow!
