It’s the weekend of the Saskatoon Kennel and Obedience Club Dog Show here in Toontown. So come on down to the Soccer Center (behind the Lawson Heights Civic Center/Library) Saturday, Sunday, or Monday morning to have a peek at all the dogs and to catch some of the action. Best of Show will be happening just after lunch each day, and Chihuahuas will be in the ring at either 9:00 or 9:40 each day. The wee girlie will also be making her debut on Sunday. She’ll have her very first trip into the Juniors ring at about 1:30 – and we’re all super excited for her. 😀
Very honestly, the absolutely best thing about local dog shows is being able to have the wee girlie there with me. I’m not a huge fan of dog shows at home… they are FAR more work than away shows. When I’m away at a dog show, the only thing I have to worry about is the dog show. But at home? I still have to do everything I’d normally have to do – the show is just added on top of everything else. But having my little girl get to see me there, watching her have fun playing with the dogs (ours and others), seeing her totally enjoying the experience and taking it all in? Totally worth it!
Here’s the girlie, sitting in the pen with the Chihuahuas (Marnie and Ned), sharing a few treats:
Totally stole the first half of my post title from about a dozen places today. LOL Just so you know it wasn’t me who was clever, I’m just jumping on the pretending to be clever bandwagon (but actually owning up to it). 😉
Well… seems I’m a busy, busy grrrl.
Met with the bride and groom who’s wedding I’ll be shooting on Saturday, a lovely young couple. We’ll be doing some really fun stuff during their “formals” shoot. Including heading into some pretty industrial spots for some cool juxtapositional photography. I love shooting weddings – really, really love shooting them actually. LOL But when a couple is cool with letting me play? SOOOOO LOVE IT! It’s always nice to shoot a couple who’s willing to go along with my ideas and my slightly crazy aesthetic. It’s gonna be awesome!
Of course, I still have three other photo shoots that I’m working on editing too. So, yeah… gotta power through those. LMAO I did create another preset for Aperture though. Each of the last two shoots I’ve edited have inspired a preset – which is kinda spanky. This one is a slightly faded and washed out treatment with a slight blue cast: a little moody, a little vintage, a little romantic. Once I get a little further along in my edits, I’ll be sure to pull out a few pics to share.
On top of all the photography happenings, I’ve also got a dog show this weekend. Thank goodness it’s a local one. 😉 So I’ll be bowing out from the show on the Saturday to shoot the wedding, but will be there with Marnie (the Chihuahua puppy) on the Friday and Sunday – raring to go.
If you are in Saskatoon this weekend, be sure to check out the Hub City show. The club always puts on a great event. We’ll all be over at the Exhibition grounds – all day Friday, all day Saturday (well, the show will be going on all day Satuday, but as I mentioned above, don’t expect to see me there that day), and Sunday in the A.M.
Oh! And I also have to pull in a few hours for a planning meeting for the Green Party of Saskatchewan’s AGM somewhere in there. LMAO The important stuff is pretty much set, ready to go… but there are a few details still to be worked out.
Soooo….. yeah…. busy few days ahead. Anyone know who we’re supposed to petition for those 30 hour days?
