The hard life of dog owners!

Melissa, her pups, Cinny and I enjoying our walk!

Last year we had a photo shoot adventure with the dogs. One of my friend's friend, who is a photographer,  asked us if we could help him perfection his photography skills. Of course we gave him paws up!! These are some of the photos:

Mommy and pooch!

Cinnamon being a super model! 

We had fun posing for the cameras and it was nice to have the dogs being part of the experience. I think Cinny wants to be a prawwfessional model ;)

Home grooming!

Shih Tzus are one of the most expensive dogs when it comes to grooming. Cinnamon needs a trim every two-three weeks and taking her to a doggie spa is something I cannot afford any longer :(
So I went to the store and purchased a dog clipper to trim my baby myself and save me some bucks.
I do not have experience trimming a dog, but after watching how-to-do videos online I trained myself to do it, and this is the end result:

I kept Cinny's hair longer, it looks like she has pants on! 

 And trimmed her face so I can see her beautiful eyes!

If you need a basic and easy to use dog clipper check the Andis Easy Clip grooming kit! I got mine at Petsmart and I really like it, comes in pink too!

Dog mommy of the month!

  Melissa, a happy dog mommy of two lovely pups!

 I present you Melissa. Melissa is mom of Burger (Westie)  and Derby (Maltese). Burger is Cinnamon's boyfriend.
I always wanted to have dogs, and when I meet Melissa and her pups I could not stop thinking about adopting one, and months later I got Cinnamon!

These pictures are from a photo shoot we had last year.

Melissa is a very sweet person with a huge heart. We both love our pups; we would be a real family if Burger asks Cinnamon's paw (wink, wink). 

Every time Mel and I get together, we talk about living in a big city like New York or San Francisco, being neighbors and going shopping everyday! How fun would that be? 
Since we both enjoy cooking and baking, we started our own little business called SUGAR THERAPY.
