What a fantastic day for a spooktacular event for the pet community. Six Flags Over Georgia hosted the 3rd annual Spooky Walk n Wag that featured a parade through the park and a costume contest with some great prizes. The weather was perfect and everyone came out with their outfits to see and be seen. There were dogs of about every shape and size and breed represented, and lots of cute costumes. Some were purchased, some were very unique and custom made, but all were perfect for the pet wearing it. Some of the humans got in on the action, as well, donning clothes or costumes that coordinated with their pet. It was fantastic. Here are a few images from the day…..

These babies looked fantastic and showed team pride by wearing their jerseys.

Some Looney Tunes characters were on hand to show their support during the costume contest and meet and greet the attendees.

This adorable little witch not only looked fantastic but also showed off some tricks to wow the judges.

In case you were worried about anyone’s safety, never fear!  This trio of masked enforcers were on hand to maintain law and order.  Keeping the hats with the badges on was a different story but I’ll say this is a different spin on Blue Line.  🙂

A huge thanks to Six Flags for hosting the event and showing everyone a fantastic time.  Most of the attendees and dog were able to walk around the park for several hours after the event and enjoy the attractions.  A great time was had by all!  Happy Trick or Treating to you all.

What a fantastic day we had for the Spooky Walk n Wag event today at Six Flags over Georgia.  The weather was lovely, mild with a cool morning and then a bit of sun peaking through by late morning.  This is the third year of the event and the biggest crowd ever.  SO MANY dogs of all different shapes and sizes and breeds, and a wild variety of costumes.  Some were purchased and some were clearly custom made but everyone looked awesome.

I thoroughly enjoyed meeting and chatting with so many people after the costume parade and then during the costume contest.  Tomorrow I’ll post more images but here is a teaser from one of the finalists in the costume contest.   This is Chloe the Princess Pomeranian with her very detailed and impressive costume and ……transportation?!  Kudos to her humans Glenn Christian and Karen Lee-Christian on outdoing themselves as usual with Chloe’s ensemble.

Recently I got the opportunity to combine two things I love:  Crossfit and dog portraits!!  My friends Vanessa and Dom work out at Crossfit Resurgens and have three cool rescue dogs.  So we met up at the Box to shoot some Crossfit themed photos.

For most of us this the position you’ll find us in immediately post WOD:  belly flop on the mat, tongue lolling.  Nice.

Why crawl out of the tire yourself when you can make your mom flip it for you?  Exactly.

It’s Friday……hallelujah. Fun outtake from Medo’s photoshoot yesterday. His mom Brooke brought him in for studio portraits and he showed off some solid clicker training results……such a good boy! And in mid-bark his ears get some impressive ear flappage, which just tickled me to pieces. Kind of reminded me of Sally Field’s headgear as The Flying Nun.

The new sample metal desk print arrived today and it is gorgeous. Words really don’t do it justice. The finish is so rich and saturated that the colors pop right off the metal. The image is printed onto aluminum for a sleek, modern look. These smaller sizes come ready to display with a built in easel back. They are perfect for a desk, a great way to show off your furry baby to visitors to your office or coworkers.
