Meet Scout, The World’s Most Patient Dog Who Can Balance Anything On His Head

10 Jan

Stuff On Scout’s Head is a Tumblr which does what it says on the tin. Scout’s owner puts stuff on Scout’s head. And then photographs him.

“If anything comes out of Scout and all this attention he’s received lately, is that I want it to be known that he was an adopted pitbull and to shed light on how ridiculous it is that pitbulls are illegal in Ontario,” writes his owner.

And with that – and without further ado – check out some of the very silly, and really rather sweet, photos of Scout doing what he does best, below…

The Dogs of Oakville by Maria Bell

11 Sep

Maria Bell has always had a lifelong love and respect for dogs and has never been without one. Currently she includes two tiny Chihuahuas in her family. Growing up, she was inspired by the immense photographic talents of her father and brothers. Her mother, a fashion designer, was also an artistic inspiration. Her career history includes working for Walt Disney Productions in graphic illustration and photography. Maria has lovingly combined all her talents and passions into creating The Dogs of Oakville, Tails of Distinction, a photo book to help raise funds for the Oakville & Milton Humane Society. Combining her great love for dogs together with her creative talents, she imagined a showcase of photos in book format, featuring the dogs of Oakville. Over 180 dog owners took the time to present their pets for photo sessions at a variety of locations throughout the Town. Against the canvas of Oakville streets, gardens and parks you will see images of over 175 dogs and be given a peek into their unique personalities. The Dogs of Oakville is sold out in print format but is now available as an eBookContact Maria for more info and to purchase a copy. Maria has already started taking photos for the next edition of The Dogs of Oakville MORE Tails of Distinction!

Here are some shots that were taken in the process of putting together the first book…






























Adoptable Dog Of The Week: Meet Avery, the Siberian Husky

10 Apr

 

Meet Avery!

Siberian Husky: An adoptable dog in Toronto, ON

Medium • Adult • Female
—————————–

Hi! I’m Avery! These kind people at T.E.A.M. Dog Rescue rescued me and my friend, Brandy, from a Montreal Kill Shelter where we ended up through no fault of our own! I am smaller in size and weight than my sister but we look very similar and people always stop our foster momma to remark on how beautiful we are!

I am a 3 year old, spayed, Siberian Husky and I am a sweet, submissive girl who loves people! I grew up outside so I am still learning what it is like inside with a family and I love it!!!!  I am a quick learner and am almost fully housebroken! I am good in the house otherwise and will not chew anything as I really like being inside where it is warm and cozy! If I am left alone, I prefer not to be crated but you can leave me a room and I will be a good girl.

I am GREAT with dogs but truth be told, cats and other small animals  should definitely stay away from me as I am a husky after all and I think they could be tasty! I have boundless energy and would do very well in an active home where I can get lots of exercise!  I also need a patient owner who will learn to understand me and teach me how to walk well on leash!

I love my humans and the kind folks at T.E.A.M. Dog Rescue say that I would be just fine being adopted on my own and I agree!
Are you the one for me?
