This summer I decided that I wanted to increase the amount of fun I incorporate into my life on a daily basis. I started going to art exhibits, going to the movies to watch a documentary on a whim, and go out and listen to live music even if I've never heard the artist before. When Propelle made an announcement that they were going to Jenny Lewis, who was opening at the Three Rivers Art Festival, I said yes immediately. An hour and a half before the show, the sky opened up and dumped a huge amount of rain on Pittsburgh. Typically I would have said screw it, and stayed home. Instead I headed downtown after the rain subsided. I'm so happy I did because the concert was fabulous and Jenny Lewis lyrics are a treasure chest of magic.

It was hot, hot, hot, but it was a blast! Below are a few of my favorite portraits. To see all of the photos visit Jenny Karlsson Photography's Facebook page and tag your dog.

When I was on my way home from work last night it was a nice surprise to see that the picture I took of Jake, the winner of Molyneaux's Pet Photo Contest, is now up on billboards all over Pittsburgh. Look at Jake's smile! Isn't he just adorable?!
On Pet Parents Day, Karen Litzinger, publisher of Heal Your Heart - Coping with the Loss of a Pet, and I teamed up with Color Me Mine in Squirrel Hill to support the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society. Several pet parents brought their dogs and one brave cat while painting water bowls, treat jars etc for their fur kids. Some dogs got their paws (and snout) painted and it was adorable to watch. Smokey Joe and Maggie, two super-sweet adoptable dogs from WPHS visited the store. Smokey Joe was mostly found with his head buried in the prop bin looking for my tennis ball, and loved trying stuff on.
