Meet Miss Mia, she is no stranger the the camera, she has her own instagram account with over 1500 flowers, @miathepompom
Mia was a true professional throughout the entire shoot, enduring cold and windy conditions down at the LIC pier, plus 9 wardrobe changes.
As you can see from all her these beautiful images, the smile never left her fluffy little face.
She has special outfits for all occasions, thanksgiving sweaters, New years eve sequined tops, even hula skirts and bikini tops for the beach.
My favorite was definitely the yellow duck or the green Christmas elf, they both made me laugh so much.
If all dogs were as well behaved as Mia and could pose like Mia, I would have the easiest job in the world.

Meet my 3 new Aussie furry best friends…Scrappy, Manny & Tish.
They are Australian Terrier’s and to be honest I had never heard of this bread before coming to America. I had seen the breed at home in Australia, but never knew they were called Australian Terriers. I first met Tish at “Meet the breeds” show in New york last month. Tish is an AKC Grand Champion and has earned her coursing ability title. The breeder named all of the dogs in Tish’s litter after characters in the 1960′s sitcom The Addams Family, Tish is short for Morticia.
The first addition the this little Aussie Terrier family out in North Attleboro, Massachusetts was Scrappy, the sometimes stubborn, soccer ball obsessed Scrapmandoo.
He is definitely top dog in this pack, ruler of his castle. Then closely followed by the lover of the ladies Manny moo moo, who was just quietly my favorite he he
He had many a story to tell me when I arrived, in his cute little doggie talk. I couldn’t resist those soulful eyes and free cuddles, he totally had me at bow wow…
As you can see from the images they are 3 very cute, close knit, cuddly kids. I can’t wait to visit them again.

This adorable little doggie is Daisy, she is a rescue puppy from the ASPCA http://www.aspca.org/nyc
here in New York, she has found her forever home with The O’sullivan family on the upper East side.
She is a Coonhound cross and has a very overactive sniffer, she is certainly living up to the reputation of a hound. Daisy likes to dig and sniff all around the garden and
no shoe, no iphone, no ipad, no remote control is safe when Daisy is about. Though when all three 3 children in her household have gone to bed, she knows it’s her time then and she gives a little wimper and waits for an invitation onto an available lap! Because she still is a baby, she is not always keen for a walk so that is where the nickname Lazy Daisy comes from, but afternoons seem to be her silly time of day and everyone calls her crazy Daisy then. She truly is a special little addition to the O’sullivan family.

I had been waiting for this event, since the moment I knew I was moving to NYC in January of this year.
The 23rd Annual New York City Halloween Dog Parade was defiantly all I had hope it would be, hundreds of people flocked to Thompkins Square on Saturday for this Kooky, crazy canine parade. We saw Pomeranian-pumpkin spiced chai latte’s, Chihuahua-Lobster bake, French bulldog/snails and more.
However not all the dogs seemed to be as excited as I was about the parade, which made it even funnier seeing sad face pugs, embarrassed Basset Hounds and just plain ashamed cheese-doodles ha ha. Though most people and pooches were happy to be out and about meeting and greeting lots of fellow dog lovers.

This black beauty is Miss Valla Petunia Wing, she was named after her human daddy’s grandmother, who was Icelandic and had 13 children, woman with a lot of character and determination. Valla is a city dog, however she loooooves to swim at her beach house in the Hamptons also, she will go from the far end of the backyard and take a giant mid air dive into the pool to get the tossed ball and frisbee. She loves to dive down under water to retrieve the ball or frisbee if it goes under water, she will go almost to the bottom. She also loves to be chased around the pool with her toys in her mouth.
While Valla is in the city she loves go for walk in the park and she also likes to watch TV, she has done this since she was a puppy.

Wow what a fun day out we had this weekend for the 5th Annual Meet the breeds show here in New York City.
Meet the Breeds is the world’s largest showcase of dogs and offers pet lovers a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the rarest dog breeds.
We could talk to responsible breeders and owners about these amazing animals and determine the right breed for our life style.
Plus we got to pat and cuddle puppies all day, which if you know what a crazy dog lady I am, you know that was the main reason I went.
There were around 160 dog breeds there, some I knew and some I had never seen before. As you can see from the images on my blog this week they were all such beautiful well behaved dogs, it was hard to only pick the images I did to show you.
So after my day at meet the breeds, I have narrowed down to some possible dog breeds that I think could be perfect for me.
1. Wire haired Dachshund
2. Australian Terrier
5. Dandie Dinmont
But knowing me I will end up bringing home the ugliest, strangest, most funny looking mix breed from a local shelter. Oh and they will probably be deaf or blind too.
