You won’t believe what these Super Dogs can do….

I was lucky enough to photograph Assistance Dogs Australia’s Dogtober 2013 Launch last week 🙂

Dogtober runs the entire month of October and is dedicated to celebrating your dog – in fact ALL dogs across the country. This event raises much needed funds and awareness for Assistance Dogs Australia.

Vegas, Nellie, Paws and Skoota (who are assistance dogs in training) were the drawcard for this event and the crowd enjoyed watching them show off their repertoire of AWESOME skills and techniques.

Sunshine (the Ambassador dog) was there getting lots of pats and attention from the crowd and Benson, the Facility Dog from Lake Illawarra High school showed us what he’s been learning 🙂

Did you know an assistance dog can pick up for the phone for a disabled person? Will bark for up to 30 minutes if their owner falls out of their wheelchair? They can even press the button for their owner to cross the road and open the fridge!!! How fantastic is that? It really is amazing what these dogs can do…

I’m so proud to be involved with this wonderful organisation 🙂

Wanna fall in love with a super cute Labrador Puppy?….Click Here…

It’s really easy to forget how cute puppies are 🙂

Last week I was asked to photograph a gorgeous Labrador puppy for Assistance Dogs Australia .

Her name was ‘Poppy’…..She was SUPER cute. She was full of energy and did all the cute things puppies do…I just smiled and smiled.

Assistance Dogs Australia are a wonderful organisation who train Labradors and Golden Retrievers to help people with physical disabilities lead more independent lives.

Cute, no, SUPER cute puppies….

It’s really easy to forget how cute puppies are 🙂

Recently I had the pleasure of photographing three 8 week old labradors for Assistance Dogs Australia .

They are a wonderful organisation who train Labradors and Golden Retrievers to help people with physical disabilities lead more independent lives.

These three labs were wild, hilarious, sleepy, cute, fun and just plain adorable.

I am their volunteer photographer and have been sorting through all the work I’ve done for them over the years.

I’ve found some pics that are gorgeous. Too gorgeous not to share with you.

Some of them are cute puppies, some show the dogs working and others just show the beautiful nature of golden retrievers and labradors.

Over the next few weeks Im going to blog a handful of photos every couple of days. I really hope you enjoy them. 🙂
