Last weekend a local photographer, Allison Duffy, taught us just how glamorous dogs can be when she volunteered some of her time to help our dogs find new homes.
I call them glamour shots. That's Ellie up there. She's a 6-year-old Australian Cattle Dog looking her very prettiest.
And here's Mona Lisa, a slightly senior Hound dog. Good pose, Mona.
Next is Roman, who is unique. We're not quite sure what breeds are in him, but he is handsome and oh so photogenic. This youngster (about a year old) isn't much more than 35 lbs and has tight, wavy hair that doesn't seem to shed much.
