The AMAZING Kirsty Pilkington transformed a tired old storeroom in our tired old Hobart office into a Christmas backdrop for our special festive photo shoot. Eight pups, two puppy raisers, four staff, a photographic assistant and the talented Kirsty spent HOURS in our makeshift studio, capturing the pups at their best.
You know what they say about working with children and animals? Well, try putting just ONE pup in front of a camera, surrounded by wrapped boxes and wearing Santa hats or reindeer antlers! We hate to spoil the illusion, but we want to make it perfectly clear just how hard Kirsty (and everyone) worked that day. And would we do it again? Absolutely!
Maybe in a year.
We welcomed Riley and Ringo to Tassie on June 30 – a special ‘end of financial year’ treat! They are little, black, adventurous, and oh so adorable! Both pups have been placed with Puppy Raisers in the North and both are enjoying the many sights and sounds of being a busy pup on the go. For a little look at Ringo’s first walk , in coat, in public, visit our Facebook page. And, check out the tail wag!
Riley and Ringo’s Puppy Raisers are completely smitten, and know they are doing something wonderful to help blind and vision impaired Tasmanians who need Guide Dogs like these boys. Together, we’re doing our best; you can help by becoming a member of Puppy Love.
Yuri and Yoda are two little black Labs who have been placed with Puppy Raisers in the North. These guys both have a gentle nature and get a whole lot of ‘awwws’ when they are out and about in their blue coats. Yuri and Yoda were our newest recruits for the International Guide Dog Day ‘Pup Parade’ in Launceston, and were the main attraction (despite the mud) at Agfest.
They certainly know how to pull a crowd! You can help them become heroes by joining Puppy Love.
Little Olly is a gorgeous gold Lab. He arrived from Queensland at eight weeks of age and was placed with a first-time Puppy Raising family in Hobart. He was immediately in the spotlight, featuring on WIN News as Tassie’s newest resident, and then again on SOUTHERN CROSS, WIN, and in the Examiner with Hawthorn Football Club captain, Luke Hodge and four of his team mates, who helped us launch our Take the Lead fundraising campaign.
Olly likes a long walks along the beach, a fair bit of attention, and cuddles with his family. He’s a charmer who is going places! Follow Olly’s progress through the newsletters, and help his progress by becoming a member of Puppy Love.
