Felix Navidad!

Meet Felix - a former resident at a local high-kill shelter, where I have been volunteering as their dog photographer for the past 2.5 years.  Yep...DOG photographer.  I'm allergic to cats!  But when I saw these gorgeous green eyes peering at me from his kennel, how could I not risk the itchy nose and skin festival to snap a few pictures of him?  He was adopted shortly after this image was posted to the shelter's website.

Many amazing dogs and cats are anxiously awaiting their forever homes in shelters near you.  Why not give the perfect gift of a saved life this Christmas?  You'll get many tail wags or purrs in appreciation.

Runners up...
MacKenzie, my beautiful pit bull mix (rescue)

Angela, former shelter resident (adopted)

  1. Awww, so sweet, Jennifer! I'm sorry you didn't get this in before the deadline, such a great photo! I have trouble with those time zones, myself, but, you're right, those cat's eyes are beautiful! I missed the B/W deadline, last time, myself ... glad you commented on the theme page for this one, so others will come by ... I should have thought to do that! =\ You have a great week! :)

  2. These are really fantastic pet photos...just beautiful!
