This is Tommy, the latest in our poster series for the Dogs’ Refuge Home of WA. Yesterday he went to his forever home (Yay!!) but he’s had a tough life. He was found wandering the streets and his flea collar was so tight it had to be surgically removed. If you look closely you can see the stitches on his neck. We are so thrilled he will never have to know such trauma again, and wish him well in his new home. Adopt a rescue! ♥
Here are three of the pooch posters from our “New Home” project with the Dogs’ Refuge Home of WA. So far Georgie has been adopted, which is awesome news – now time for Snoopy and Rusty to find their places with forever families too.
EEKKKK! Been dying to share with you all – in just over 3 weeks I’m flying to Cambodia to photograph tigers, elephants, gibbons, bears (and many more) at the Wildlife Alliance sanctuary (https://www.facebook.com/

Look Twice – the animals of Bali as never seen before.
One Night Only
Photographic Exhibition & Fundraiser
6:30pm – 9:30pm Friday 8th June 2012
Tompkins on Swan, cnr Dunkley Ave & Canning Hwy, Alfred Cove, Perth WA
The Look Twice exhibition showcases the animals of Bali as never seen before. These uplifting and poignantly beautiful images reveal their strength and spirit, and are a testament to the valuable work undertaken to save their lives. You will fall in love with every one.
Just like our pets at home, Bali animals deserve to be loved, cared for and nourished. Yet thousands of street dogs, cats and other domestic animals in Bali endure starvation, disease and neglect. Left unattended these animals suffer enormously. Tourists in Bali can be overwhelmed by the distressing sight of animals in pain and often don’t know how to help.
The Bali Animal Welfare Association (BAWA) is dedicated to reducing the suffering of Bali’s street dogs and other animals by running a 24 hour animal ambulance rescue service, a mobile sterilisation clinic for population control and rabies eradication, a fully staffed veterinary clinic and rescue centre in Ubud, an animal adoption program, and a continually expanding range of community education programs to improve the health and welfare of Bali animals …but it is increasingly difficult for BAWA to continue this amazing work without the desperately needed funds to support these operations. BAWA is funded entirely by individual donations, fundraising projects and the kind efforts of volunteers. They don’t receive government support and urgently need our help!
In January 2012 we flew to Bali and photographed more than 50 rescued street dogs, cats, puppies, kittens and other species including rabbits, piglets, ducks, lizards, turtles, snakes, roosters, ducks and monkeys in temporarily constructed studios around Ubud. This is the first time Bali street animals have been photographed in the clarity of a studio environment and the results are deeply moving.
Sixty exhibited images will be available for purchase in two sizes and fabulous silent auction items, generously donated by compassionate businesses, are up for grabs.
We invite you to be a part of this special one-night-only exhibition. Together we can help BAWA change the lives of Bali animals. 100% of profits from “Look Twice” go to BAWA.

Little Sahara flew around Australia in December to raise awareness for shelter dogs. We had the pleasure of photographing her at the Dog’s Refuge Home of WA and in the studio. She was such a joy to take pics of!
Here’s the fab video clip of her travels – can you spot Team Houndstooth, LOL?
Last week we did a special photo session with Sahara, a sweet and clever ex-rescue pooch. She just finished travelling around Australia courtesy of Jetpets raising awareness and funds for shelter dogs. Yesterday, on her 1 year anniversary in finding her forever, she visited the Dog’s Refuge Home of WA in Perth and met Koko the kelpie, star of the hit movie “Red Dog”! Sahara took it all in her stride – on the other hand, I was totally star-struck by Koko, LOL!
A big congrats to Sahara on her one year milestone. She now has the best life a dog could wish for and deserves every minute of it.

A Houndstooth Studio first today - photographing a Grabbit sent to us by Fetching Dogs! Yahoo! These are seriously fabulous dog toys made with lots of love! Can’t wait to set ours loose on some pooches in the studio. Don’t be fooled by his toothless smile though – these things can take your hand off! Plus, did you know, proceeds from Grabbits sold go to Sydney Pet Rescue and Adoption, a non-profit charity that rescues and rehomes dogs and cats in NSW.
