Melbourne Pet Photography - Better Homes and Garden Show

Lesley O'Donnell - Saturday, March 03, 2012

Waiting for the gates to open on day two

A huge thanks to my lovely friends, Leanne, Susie and Fi for assisting me to man, or should that be woman, my stand at the Better Homes and Gardens show last weekend. It was Melbourne’s hottest weekend this summer and was a real scorcher with two of the days reaching 37 degrees with the third cooling to a mild 34! The fierce heat was replaced with winds so strong the perimeter fence blew over so our endurance was certainly tested. Non of us would normally choose to be outside in such heat so ladies your efforts were all the more appreciated.

Thanks also to my partner Richard who helped me hang the display and put it all together. Top effort!  As always, you were a supportive gem.

And a special thank you to all my wonderful clients and their pets for allowing me to share a snippet of your lives. You bring fun and satisfaction into my life.

Wow what a time you have had and what great friends you have to help you in such HOT weather. Have been over there in heat like that and thought I was going to die after getting lost and having to walk a long way back. Just the same wish I could be over
there again one day. Who knows?

Melbourne Pet Photography - Giant Lap Dog

Lesley O'Donnell - Saturday, March 03, 2012

Isla takes a rest on my lap

Isla stole the scene at the Better Homes and Garden show in Melbourne last weekend. As big as a pony, this Great Dane was an irresistible draw card for the Toorak Road Vet Clinic who had a stand next to Pet Shots Photography.

Unlike the current weather which is cool and drizzly, last weekend was hot, hot, hot! In these testing conditions I was amazed at how patient Isla was with the hundreds of people who came up to marvel at her size, cuddle and pat her.

She made me laugh as she took many opportunities to rest her rear legs on accommodating laps. Too big to place her whole body across you she was still able to sit on your lap, with legs curled under her rump, and position herself perfectly for a back massage. 

This giant of a dog also had the most interesting ears that she could move into different positions, including bringing them together over her forehead to act like a sun visor. Too funny!

You do have some interesting animals to photograph at times. All loveable I am sure but you would need a big house and backyard to accomodate this one. Well done. Love the ears too.
