I have had such a bad week… To top it off, this morning I went over to the shelter to get ready for the fundraiser at Care-A-Lot Pet Supplies. I was going to transport Eddie, but I ended up locking my keys in the Jeep and when Kristie offered to carpool Eddie and I to […]

Missing You Already!

Well Hollis and Dottie are being adopted. I decided to take moment to get one last shot of precious Dottie since I may never get to see her again (which would signify a good thing)! Hopefully the adoption is finalized and she is taken to a wonderful forever home! She really deserves it. And then […]

I know this is going to sound either extremely typical or very stupid, but seeing the dogs go makes me so sad! Don’t get me wrong, I’m so happy that they are being adopted and finding good homes… But at the same time, the shelter is starting to get pretty lonely! Amelia was first to […]

Hollis is an incredible dog. Julia likes to bring him along on our fundraisers because he’s such an attention grabber! When Hollis came to the Animal Aid Society his coat was so matted that they had to trim his fur. They ended up styling his coat to look like that of a lion! Here’s a […]

Today was pretty exciting. We got three new dogs at the shelter; Jeff, Gordon, and Bill. Jeff is a beautiful, rambunctious Golden Retriever, Gordon is a mellow, loveable American Bulldog, and Bill is a crafty little Beagle. Jeff had to be taken to the vet today so I was only able to get pictures of […]

Day one at the Animal Aid Society was incredible! My shift didn’t start until 9pm but I arrived an hour early. Fortunately there were other early birds, and I was able to get out and introduce myself to the other volunteers. Patty offered to show me the ropes, and I helped her with her routine. […]

Today I took a trip to the Virginia Living Museum. The visit was just to pass time, but I ended up getting quite a few great shots of the animal exhibits including the otters, coyote, and red wolves… Actually the red wolves were sleeping in the back of their exhibit as usual. I’ve never had […]

One with Nature…. NOT!

I had a pretty incredible weekend. It started off with a 30 minute workout, followed by dinner on Friday night with Nate, Vince, and Alex. Then on Saturday I visited Bluebird Gap Farm for about an hour where I saw the most adorable kids playing with a flower pot: After watching the baby goats for […]

Sheesh, there’s been a lot going on lately and I haven’t updated the blog in over a month! Well to get you up to speed, let me explain what has happened within the last two months. In March I joined the Hampton Roads Bird Club on my very first Sunday bird walk at the Newport […]

Crafty Cardinals

This morning my goal was to capture a shot of a beautiful cardinal. My journey began at Sandy Bottom Nature Park where I walked carefully through the park, eyes peeled for anything red amidst the brown and orange of the woodlands. I managed to spot only one cardinal in the almost three hour search! Unfortunately, […]
