Week 41


Each week a group of wonderful photographers from Beautiful Beasties Network challenges each other to take on an assignment. This is a great way to network, get to know each other, and just try new things in general.

This week our project is Unique Collars. Honestly, I have three beautiful babies plus kitty and I don't have any extra collars in my house. My two girls are 11 years old and I have not changed their collars since they were about 2 years old. Good leather lasts! Their current collars have so many beautiful memories with my babies. You could say, I am afraid to change their collars, because I don't want to change what we have going on together. These collars were thru better and best. If I ever buy a collar I take it to the shelter I volunteer in. I feel bad that the shelter babies don't have any collars, no reason for my babies to have more than necessary...

Although, I don't have extra collars to show off, I am approaching this challenge in a different matter. I am going to display three personalities of Three Musketeers differently. I am new to our groups of photographers, so it is time to introduce my pack. I hope you will enjoy this photo story and leave me a comment :)  


Katchka is our princess. She rarely walks on a leash as she is fully trained and walks by my side at all times. Katchka is delicate beautiful girl, who loves to be pampered. As you can see Katchka loves to be glamorous. No collar for this delicate lady but pearls truly describe what kind of girl she is. Katchka is our very influential girl and runs Kika and Sarik for me. Her powers over my other dogs are noticeable and she never forces anyone, she is a quiet leader.

She was not impressed with this shoot, nobody was...


Kika is our tough dog in a family. This collar truly represents this 5lb dog with an attitude. I swear she believes that she is a Doberman! She wants things her way and she will fight others for her believes, my problem child. Kika is always ready to claim the lead position within the family... wild child and we call her crazy. 


Sarik is our newest addition. He is sweet and affectionate trouble maker who does exactly opposite from what we ask of him. Typical almost 3 years old boy, refuses to grow up. At least we all have fun watching him driving me bananas. He is very loving, certified Therapy Dog, who has so much love in his heart. When someone is stressed out, he will sit down right by your side to force you to pet him. He understands that touching an animal calms humans down, smart trouble maker. I have never met a dog who has so much love in his heart. Sarik is selfless and always ready to give more love.


Sarik has a long neck and needs a special collar. On this photo I bought him a new collar, didn't realize the collar was upside down. This collar is for hounds with tall skinny neck and it is padded, necessity.  

I truly hope you have enjoyed to read about my Three Musketeers, who are always willing to let me practice my craziness.  It was a time to introduce their personalities.

I hope you enjoyed my photo story and I would love to invite you to follow translation of our project by viewing work of Spotty Nose Pet Photography, Los Angeles, California. This is a circle and we always have lots of photographers participating. Please scroll down on each blog and visit the next photographer.

Have fun! 



Sarik was feeling left out, so I let him try the tough dog collar. He fits, almost! It just doesn't go with his loving personality.
