GOT HIS WHEELS!

We also have another fantastic Jakk update. Thanks to the support of SavourLife, Jakk received his custom built wheelchair from Eddie’s Wheels for Pets in the USA. He’s now seeking a special home, and human, to transition him into the next phase of his life. Yep, he is up for adoption through WA Pet Project! We hope to reach as many people as we can with this news, with the view to finding the right forever home for Jakk. If you know anyone who might be suitable, please be sure to share this post with them.

 

CLICK TO VIEW LARGE! Look how much Jakk from the WA Pet Project has grown since April. This special boy is now available for adoption. Check out his profile on PetRescue at http://bit.ly/2ieeqKR. #AdoptDontShop #AnimalsAreNotTrash #JustJakk

‘RED DOG : TRUE BLUE’

A FILM FOR ALL! Last night we went to the  VIP home town screening at Event Cinemas Innaloo and it was everything we hoped it would be, and then some.

Attended by 400+ guests, dignitaries, and cast members, including Producer Nelson Woss, Managing Director of Roadshow Films Joel Pearlman, Minister of Health, Culture and the Arts the Hon John Day, the US Consul General for WA Rachel Cooke, and the canine star himself Phoenix (AKA ‘Red Dog’), everyone was thoroughly entertained and brought the house down with applause at the end.

‘RED DOG : TRUE BLUE’ is an exceptional film for all ages, with everything you could possibly want from a prequel – drama, action, excellent acting, exquisite cinematography, a fantastic story, iconic Australiana, and an unbreakable bond between a boy and his dog. There’s even a cameo from a Dogs’ Refuge Home of WA puppy.

I was privileged to photograph the original Red Dog, Koko, several times before he passed away and loved that ‘RED DOG : TRUE BLUE’ was dedicated to his memory. Without giving away the storyline, I needed my tissues in the first few minutes, when flashbacks of Koko came up on screen. He was such a clever, beautiful boy and has been represented honorably in his early years by new pooch on the block, Phoenix.

It’s a 10/10 score from me and a bonus sense of pride that it was filmed in the Pilbara, and mentions Tom Price, my home town.

‘RED DOG : TRUE BLUE’ is officially released on Boxing Day. Put it on your MUST SEE list and tell your family and friends.

Thanks to the best event photographer in town, Julie K Photography for these pics.

Red Dog himself (Phoenix) gave out a Houndstooth Studio prize valued at $1890 tonight. Love these pics of him holding our voucher and meeting the lucky winner. Oh, and I would like arms like his trainer for Xmas (at left in first image).
