Dogs on Thursday - Posing Paws event

Sophia and Brandi - Posing Paws 2005

For the past eight years or so we have participated in the annual Minnesota Valley Humane Society's Posing Paws . After the first year, we knew better than to try and get our pets in a photo with Santa so now it's just the dogs and hubby and I.

This photo is the last Posing Paws photo of Brandi (the fox terrier-mix mutt in the front). She was such a wonderful, loving, gentle dog but oh! how she would get so nervous at this event!

If you've never participated before, and you live in the Twin Cities, MN area, I would highly recommend the event. It begins this weekend, Nov. 8 and 9 and continues the following weekend, Nov. 15 and 16.

You bring your pets (and family if you'd like) and they supply the photographers, Santa and three set designs to choose from. They usually have a table of festive attire that your pets can borrow for the photo shoot.

For only $50 you take home a CD with about ten professional quality high-resolution photographs of you and your pets. Because everyone volunteers their time it is a wonderful and easy way to donate to the MVHS.

If you see us there, be sure to stop by and introduce yourself.

  1. That's a great photo! Our mall has a fabulous Santa and they will take pet photos before the mall opens. I'll have to check into a fund raiser. g

  2. Posing Paws is open to all pets and their human families, not just dogs and cats. The cost is $50 and includes a professional photo sitting, as well as a CD with 6 high resolution, print quality photos from the photo session. Proceeds from Posing Paws go to support the Minnesota Valley Humane Society (MVHS), a non-profit organization dedicated to providing care for pets, and uniting pets with loving families throughout the Twin Cities and southern Minnesota.
