Park and Puppies – Adopt Don’t Shop


This year I asked my 2019 MOD SQUAD members what they would like the theme of their introductory shoot to be.  I had several options but Parks and Puppies won unanimously! I mean I can’t blame them – who wouldn’t want to snuggle cute puppies?!  All of these sweet babies were part of a litter that a stray dog had and we rescued and adopted out to friends! They all have an amazing life now and a few of their sweet owners brought them back to be reunited for Parks and Puppies photo-shoot! We also wanted to use this photo shoot to spread the adopt don’t shop, message.

There were 4 puppy brothers that were reintroduced after being adopted.  It was so cute to see them recognize each other and then just start playing.  There were so many laughs, spilled water bowls and chasing puppies.  Hopefully you all were able to see the behind the scenes from this shoot on my Instagram stories because it was some of the funniest behind the scenes we have ever had.  The runt of the litter, Jax, was a fan favorite mostly because he was the most nervous and liked to cuddle.

The park we decided to feature was a local park that includes soccer fields, football fields, baseball fields as well as a dog park and skate park.  After the puppies left (we tried to keep them out of the heat too long) we headed over to the skate park.  It was probably very obvious we didn’t quite belong but the whole community was so kind and loaned us skateboards, helped us with poses so we didn’t look too awkward and tried to teach us some skills.  It was so fun to watch and we appreciated all the people we met!

Adopt Don’t Shop

In addition to the amazing time we had we would like to bring awareness to the fact that shelters in our home town as well as all over the nation are overflowing with animals that need homes! Please consider adopting and not shopping the next time you would like to make an animal part of your home and give these sweet babies a chance to have a good home!

Hope everyone enjoys the images and can see the fun we had with these special ladies and sweet babies!

Here are some links to local shelters that could use your help in adopting your new fuuuur-ever friend!
