Winter Carnival…

has gone to the dogs!

20170226-dsc_2505-edit-2Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

There’s a lot to be learned from our four-legged friends.

This week-end had a special event sponsored by some amazing local business’ all in the name of raising money to support the Panhandle Animal Shelter.

A little snow didn’t keep the crowds away and the dogs ran their hearts out pulling size suitable empty kegs down a snowy track to raise money for their less fortunate friends.

There were dogs of all sizes dressed in all kinds of gear sporting EzyDog harnesses for the Keg Pull.

This was my first time attending the event and I had the pleasure of being in the thick of the action. Some dogs gave it their all, seasoned veterans returning to better their times from past years. Others, new to the game, took more leisurely runs, pausing for photo opportunities along the way.

Great group of dog loving people supporting a wonderful cause and lucky me…I got to spend a few hours combining two passions, dogs and photography.

February’s Tip: Double your pleasure and try to find a way to combine two passions in one. Really think about what gives you the most joy to photograph and seek out opportunities that combine those things. Your heart will thank you!

  1. It does look like a very fun day. The dog looks so determined in his efforts to pull the barrel.I’m sure you had a wonderful time.

  2. What fun! And what a photo! I adore your reminder to combine your passions. My favourite example is Jason deCaires Taylor, who has combined his love of photography, scuba diving, sculpture and environmental conservation… rolled it all into one…pow!…growing new coral, drawing new species into previously barren areas…my idea of fabulous. I’m sure you know of him, Sheryl (he’s a British sculptor) but if not, google his name and go to his website xxx
