Pet-Palooza & The Burlington Regional Dog Park – Part II – Wendi Riggens Photography

During the event, we offered free mini-portrait sessions for the dogs. I tried to narrow my favorites down to a few, but ended up with a couple dozen!!! Be sure to take advantage of my special event pricing, and remember, 25% of all proceeds are being donated to the dog park. Also, book a pet session for the month of September or October, and your entire session fee will be donated as well!

If you had your dog’s portrait taken, visit the Pet-Palooza gallery to order prints:

First, a thank you to Officer Bloomer and Reno for their demonstration. Seeing him at work was incredible!

This is Kenra, of Jen & Kenra’s in Ft Madison. She’s such a diva!

Hi Maddie! She’s the star of the Free Of The Leash blog! BTW, I love the dog park tshirts. I bought two!

This is my cousin Tedra and her cute pooch Monster. Tedra owns Peavine Lane Pet Spa in Ft. Madison, and yes, she did paint her pretty pooch blue! I spotted a couple dogs sporting “doggie tattoos” on their bottoms after visiting her booth!

And just a few more of my favorites from the day:

She wasn’t sure about me at first, especially since I have to get so close with my fisheye for the effect we were going for, but after a few minutes, she gave me some smiles!

I have a soft spot in my heart for English Bulldogs. My parents raised them for 20+ years, and my grandparents for twice that long. I shot several on Sunday, but this was my favorite!

When I saw this beautiful boy, I cried. Even though he is a harlequin and our great dane was all black, he reminded me so much of Salem. He is the first dane I’ve seen since Salem passed, and all I could do when I saw him was pet him and cry. He was just beautiful! Then we saw this super cute little puppy, and I couldn’t pass up a chance to photograph them together. It’s amazing the difference a year makes in size!

This little lady won the “Ugliest Dog” contest, but I think she is beautiful!

Just a few more…
