The Tea Cup from The Mutt Strutt by TeaPhotography The Tea Cup from The Mutt Strutt by TeaPhotography
Dedicated to my sweet friend Susan :iconsuezn: who asked to see photos from
The Mutt Strutt and to THANK her for her recent purchase of greeting cards on bahalf of
"The Shelter Project"
:la:

Chiko was one of MANY awesome dogs from The Mutt Strutt, our humane society's biggest fundraiser of the year, whose portrait I did on Sunday, August 18th.

All of the dogs did extremely well, except for just one who was a bit of a challenge... but that's not too bad, and there's always going to be at least one! :lol:

Anyway, it was a sunny day, so there was a BIG turn out, and there was no need to coax people to get their dog's photos done... however in Chiko's case... I had been watching this excessively cute dog from my booth for a while, and I could not resist, but to finally step out of my booth when I had a moment and ask the owner if she might be interested in a portrait for a donation to our humane society, and she was!

And, THEN, she made a custom order of both prints and greeting cards, using this image- which was one of three custom orders that day! :la:

Chiko did enter the actual Mutt Strutt event, in the category of "The Smallest Dog" being that he was a 2 pound Tea-Cup Chihuahua, but the owner said he did NOT win, because there was one Tea-Cup, smaller at 1.5 pounds!! :omg:

Well, Chiko, was a WINNER in our books, and in fact, all of them were WINNERS!
:icon1stplaceplz:

Feature of Susan's beautiful work:



Dear Susan,
I can't thank you enough for what you've done on behalf of the
of the animals, through "The Shelter Project"... it means the world to me,
but to think of what it means for the animals. I hope you will enjoy your cards!
:heart: Your Friend, Tea


~~~~~~~~~:rose:

[ :note: NOTE: Thank you, in advance, for any :+fav:'s I may receive for this image. :thanks: :aww: :rose: I am honoured and grateful that anyone would think well enough to :+fav: it. :nod: So thank you from the bottom of my heart :heart: . I understand if you don't have time to comment, but thank you for any kind comments, too. :aww:
It's important to know this NOW, as I may NOT be able to do individual thank-you's for :+fav:'s, or in case I cannot respond to each comment, either. Thanks for understanding. :thanks:
And, if you just came to view, I appreciate that, too.

He is very cute... oh yes, much like your little Buddy! :la:

You are so much welcome, but really its so much the least I could do, for what you've done!
:glomp:

The fact that you would join me in helping the animals with the order that you made, means the world... it really does take teamwork, and I'm just thrilled that you do like the cards this much!

Always, Much Friendship, Tea :cuddle:

 Every little bit helps.  It just doesn't seem right to not help the animals if I am able to somehow, and you have been able to show a way to do that through your beautiful work and efforts.   It's wonderful!  Flowering Vine

His little necklace is adorable!  :D  I wish I could dress up our cat... cats don't usually take to that so well though.  :laughing:

Isn't that funny??

I don't know too many cats who LIKE to dress up either... I've seen a few in hats or sunglasses or both, but I honestly don't know how people DO that!

Dogs seems slightly more agreeable, though I've not tended to be one to do this on my dogs either... but if someone else's dog seems okay with it, then... ? okay! :D

I've tried with our cat a few times, but he will usually only sit for a couple angry photos and then he's done.  :laughing:  One of our dogs absolutely loved to be dressed up.  He would get so excited and wiggly when we'd put something on him - it was adorable!

Thanks so much!! :la:
We literally had to scrounge up a background at the last minute! :faint: :no:

I had arranged for certain backgrounds to be there... and they weren't there... so we were looking around, asking people, but then one of my assistants, happened to have this in her car.. she was afraid it would be "too loud" but... well, everyone loved it... it was either that or a white sheet, and everyone enthusiastically wanted this.
So, there it was in all of its colourful glory! :giggle:
