"New Year’s Eve is the one party that the whole world is invited to, and it’s just days away!  As we get ready to ring in 2013 with a loud, colorful display of festive fireworks, we need to remember to keep our furry friends safe.  The excitement of the sparkling, popping and cracking sounds might be fun for humans, but it can make many pets agitated and scared. Without proper care, pets can get lost during the festivities.  
Here are a few helpful tips to keep your furry friend safe this New Year’s Eve: Make sure your pet is wearing a collar with identification tags with current in…

Is it okay to give a pet as a gift?

What our pet photographers do to get that perfect shot!

My guess is there muscles in their necks, arms, legs and backs must be painful after a flexible shoot!They must drive to the pet owner. This is for your convenience as well as to have your photographs taken in the comforts of your own home or yard. Purchasing all of that equipment! Yes, there is a lot of equipment that professional photographers have to carry around. The camera is not the only impor…
