Dog of the Week: “Shem”; at the Center for Animal Health and Welfare; Easton pet portraits by tracy bodeo photography

Come visit the wonderful Shem at the Center for Animal Health & Welfare in Easton, PA– www.healthyanimalcenter.org .  Shem is an older guy but still lots of fun!  He loves being out and about and rolling around in the grass.  He is very friendly, sweet, and walks well on a leash.  Shem often takes a squeaky toy along with him on his walks.  It’s funny to watch him throw his ball down and roll on top of it in the grass.  Then he will snatch it back up and start walking again.  And as you can see, Shem has a great smile!  Shem could be the dog for you….

Our second annual Fetching Pets Portrait Day to raise money for the Center for Animal Health and Welfare, was a great success.  Not only did we raise $2003.00 for the Center, but all the dogs who participated in the event had a terrific time.   The event took place at AVH Veterinary Group in Pen Argyl, PA.  It was a beautiful day and we had a fabulous turnout for the puppy playgroup as well as the pet portraits.  Several dogs from the Center also came for a visit with the hopes of finding their forever homes.

Here are a some of the pets who participated in our Fetching Fundraiser:

The 2011 Center for Animal Health and Welfare holiday cards are now available for purchase to help raise money for the Center.  Each pack of eight 5×7 cards (2 each of 4 designs) costs $20.00 and all proceeds go directly to the animals at the Center.  You can choose a cat pack or a dog pack or get one or more of both!  If there is one particular style that you like best, you can also order one pack of 25 cards for $60.00.  All of the animals featured on the cards are residents of the CAHW and some of them have been there for 1 or 2+ years.  We are hoping not only to raise some money but also to raise awareness of our homeless pets and find them homes for the holidays.  If you are interested in adopting one of our homeless pets or in purchasing a pack or two of our cards, please visit the Center in Easton www.healthyanimalcenter.com or contact me directly at mail@tracybodeo.com .  Thank you to our sponsors who helped cover the cost of printing: “A Furry Tail Come True” Doggie Daycare and Boarding www.afurrytailcometrue.com  (Hellertown, PA), AVH Veterinary Group www.avhvet.vetsuite.com (Pen Argyl, PA) and Bob & Joanie Thompson of Thompson Photo Arts- nature and wildlife photography http://thompsonphotoarts.com.  Thank you for your support!

Meet Rexx, the adorable 30+ lb., 12 week old St. Bernard puppy!  This sweet (and super soft) dog was very well-behaved during his puppy session.  We were able to get some fun outdoor shots as well as formal images.  I look forward to working with him again in the future, when he will probably be close to 200 lbs.!
