Heidi ~ BLOW project ~ Oshawa pet photographer

This is Heidi Ho Ho and her photos from the very popular BLOW dog photo series, otherwise known as Dogs vs Fans.  For those of you who aren’t familiar with this very popular pet photography series, I introduced the much-awaited BLOW project in this very first blog entry, and it has become a big hit on sites like Bored Panda and across the globe in the UK, France, Estonia, and even Japan among other countries.

Sadly, Heidi is no longer with us.  This sweet girl is a Dachshund Rescue of North America alum.  Found by the side of a country road as a paralized “stray” 12 years ago, Heidi was scheduled for euthanasia until DRNA stepped in.  Six months later Margaret adopted her –complete with wheelchair and diapers — and volunteers got her through the 2-day transport from South Carolina to Ontario.

Heidi had actually come here for a Tribute/Honor Session™ and I asked mom Margaret if we could take a couple of shots with the fan.

What a doll.

Stay tuned right here on the scruffy dog blog for more exciting entries in the BLOW photo series!  You can also see more of BLOW across different online publications like Dog Milk, Dogster and This Dog’s Life (sometimes called Dogs vs Fans) as well as real publications globally.

Luke, Lexi & Lucy ~ BLOW project ~ Brampton pet photographer

These stunning, fully-coated Shih-tzu are repeat clients, and seemed absolutely perfect for the BLOW dog photography project. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this popular pet photography series, I introduced the much-awaited BLOW project in this very first blog entry, and it has become a big hit on sites like Bored Panda and across the globe in the UK, France, Estonia, and even Japan among other countries.

First up, we have the super handsome Luke.

Luke was very engaged with the fan.

…even when inside a box.

Thanks for bringing all of your glorious hair to the party, Luke.

And this is Luke’s beautiful sister Lexi.  This little girl handled her modeling gig like a super star.

And this is baby sister Lucy … no slouch in the modeling department either.
