Homeless, but not Down and Out

Look into their eyes and you will see stories of joy, love, compassion, respect, gratitude and unfortunately, heartache. They speak not a word, but if they did, they would have no complaints. This is one of the many great characteristics of a dog. No matter how much these puppies feel abandoned, neglected, heart broken or depressed, they keep positive and are willing to adore their next families. After all, these eight puppies just want to be loved, unconditionally. If you or anyone you know is looking for a canine or feline, please contact Pet Friends in Irwin or call them at 724-863-7722. You can also see these wonderful puppies in person at Burton’s Total Pet in North Huntingdon on Saturday, April 27th! In addition, Pet Friends has a great staff of dedicated volunteers. Perhaps you may like to join them?

Kelly and Brendon’s April Wedding


The city of Pittsburgh set the stage for Kelly and Brendon’s April wedding. The couple got married and had their reception at the prestigious Le Mont restaurant on Mt. Washington. One of the most memorable moments occurred during the exchanging of vows as they read what they wrote for each other. I am not one for getting emotional during a ceremony, but this was a different case. Maybe it was the spring season, or the vistas of our romantic city, or the smell of pink roses and glistening candles. What ever it was, Brendon channeled poet, Pablo Neruda and lyricist, Dave Matthews to create a lovely vow that left me wondering, “Dang! I bet my wife wishes that I could be that romantic!” I hope you enjoy! http://www.amcgregorphotography.com

March for Parks!

My latest adventure found me documenting the March for Parks annual fundraiser at Cedar Creek Park. This non-profit group is dedicated to raising money for the construction of dog parks. There were several teams, volunteers and happy tails enjoying the festivities. They joyfully walked a mile and collectively raised over $1700.00! Check out some of the photos of this well-organized event. Hopefully, you may want to bring out your puppy for some fresh air and exercise at their next fundraiser! Even if you raise one dollar, your puppy will have a terrific time mingling with friends and bathing you in kisses! What could possibly be better than THAT?
