The many faces of the running bulldog! I couldn't pick a favourite from this running sequence I shot during Taco's #SquishyFaceCrewbook session so I made a video. Behold his majesticness (it's a word!) 😍 Taco is one third of @tacos_frenchies I wrapped up shooting last weekend and sent the files to the printer a few days ago. Dave(less) and I will be cheersing ourselves tonight for surviving another book project. --- I encourage regram-ing and sharing to Facebook, but please do not download or repost without my permission. --- #ruthlessphotos #sydneydogs #dogsofsydney #canberradogs #dogsofcanberra #yearofthedog #bulldog #aussiebulldog #squishyfacecrew #flatnosesociety

Belated birthday wishes to the very beautiful @beretta_theamstaff! (Try saying that after a few vodkas 😄) This stunner is one of the faces of my #2019Rescued BlockheadsCalendar and the pre-sale will be opening soooo soooooon. This was taken on my Autumn trip to #Canberra. I'll be heading back down there for sessions in a few weeks so drop me a line if you'd like to book a shoot.. --- I encourage regram-ing and sharing to Facebook, but please do not download or repost without my permission. --- #ruthlessphotos #sydneydogs #dogsofsydney #canberradogs #dogsofcanberra #yearofthedog #amstaff #blockhead #rescuedog #americanstaffordshireterrier #adoptallthedogs

Taurus from @fetchingdogs had his adoption photos shoot yesterday. He’s equal parts handsome and dopey. --- I encourage regram-ing and sharing to Facebook, but please do not download or repost without my permission. --- #ruthlessphotos #sydneydogs #dogsofsydney #canberradogs #dogsofcanberra #yearofthedog #rottweiler #adoptme #rescuedog

I've agonised over whether I should write this #ruokday blog post or not but I just squeezed my eyes closed, clenched by teeth and hit publish. I'm now going to hide from the internet for the rest of the day! I hope it helps even just one person (link to recent blog posts in profile). --- I encourage regram-ing and sharing to Facebook, but please do not download or repost without my permission. --- #ruthlessphotos #sydneydogs #dogsofsydney #canberradogs #dogsofcanberra #yearofthedog #pugmix #underbite #ruok #overshare

Oh hi 👋 It's been a while between posts! I've been working like a mad woman to get my #SquishyFaceCrewbook finished. I have just two shoots left and if the weather Gods are kind I'll be able to send the artwork to the printer NEXT WEEK!!! I'm just a little bit excited. People have been asking about my fundraiser calendars, diary and Christmas cards ... they're on the verge of being finished too. I'll be sure to tell you all about that when the pre-sale opens. Chopper went from bad to worse then got better then had a reaction to the meds and then came good and I thought he was ok to go for a short walk but ended up having to carry him home. It's been a rollercoaster and way too many tears have been shed but I *think* things can only get better from here. Cross everything please. Because you're all here for the dog photos, here's one of Prada, Gucci and Taco. You guessed it, stars of my book. Keep Gucci in your thoughts as well please, she's also been going through the wars with health issues 💗 You can follow @_tacogucci for updates. --- I encourage regram-ing and sharing to Facebook, but please do not download or repost without my permission. --- #ruthlessphotos #sydneydogs #dogsofsydney #canberradogs #dogsofcanberra #yearofthedog #frenchie #frenchbulldog #bulldog #aussiebulldog #squishyfacecrew #flatnosesociety

Chopper's been really unstable on his back legs since yesterday afternoon. Of course it's Chopper so he wouldn't just relax and stop trying to follow us everywhere, it was really hard to watch. We were worried it might be vestibular disease but I took him to the vet this morning and she thinks he's just hurt his back somehow. Fingers crossed that's all it is, I wasn't mentally prepared for anything more serious. He's nearly 13 but he's always been very healthy and active so hopefully he'll be with us for another few years. --- I encourage regram-ing and sharing to Facebook, but please do not download or repost without my permission. --- #ruthlessphotos #sydneydogs #dogsofsydney #canberradogs #dogsofcanberra #yearofthedog #staffyx #seniordog #rescuedog #brindledog

You might have seen Kozik and Sakura from @fetchingdogs in my stories during the week. They stayed here for a couple of nights when they were between foster carers and much #puppyspam happened. It was a busy couple of days for me but I managed to do their adoption photos before they got picked up. They took to modeling like absolute pros 🤩. --- I encourage regram-ing and sharing to Facebook, but please do not download or repost without my permission. --- #ruthlessphotos #sydneydogs #dogsofsydney #canberradogs #dogsofcanberra #yearofthedog #puppies #mixedbreed #rescuepuppies #cute #adoptme #volunteerwork #givingback

Gorgeous Scoop from @fetchingdogs dropped by our holiday rental last week to get some new adoption photos. Isn’t she a pretty girl? If we didn’t already have four she would be ours now. --- I encourage regram-ing and sharing to Facebook, but please do not download or repost without my permission. --- #ruthlessphotos #sydneydogs #dogsofsydney #canberradogs #dogsofcanberra #yearofthedog #pinknose #blockhead #rescuedog #headtilt #adoptallthedogs

@bruno_the_blockhead took the @embarkvet DNA test. Does anyone want to guess what he is? (Sorry, drop dead gorgeous isn’t a breed 😄) I’ll post the results on my blog tomorrow. --- I encourage regram-ing and sharing to Facebook, but please do not download or repost without my permission. --- #ruthlessphotos #sydneydogs #dogsofsydney #canberradogs #dogsofcanberra #yearofthedog #embarkdna #blockhead #rescuedog #whatami

Happy #NationalDogDay - isn’t every day Dog day?? 😊 Are you doing anything special to mark the occasion?

Because album flips always come in threes, meet the gorgeous Buddy! He was adopted from @fetchingdogs when he was a puppy and grew up to be a star of their 2019 Rescued calendar (coming soon). This is the album his person ordered from our shoot together. His cousin Bentley makes a cameo at the end, you’ll meet him properly soon. I always get asked how I do these album flips so please look at an old post for the answer. --- I encourage regram-ing and sharing to Facebook, but please do not download or repost without my permission. --- #ruthlessphotos #sydneydogs #dogsofsydney #canberradogs #dogsofcanberra #yearofthedog #rescuedog

If you dropped by my stand at the @thedogloversshow you might have seen this 12x12” album of some of my work. It lives at @thecaninecollective.nb so if you’re dropping your dog off for a groom or daycare, or you’re an @amyspuppypreschool student, feel free to have a look through it to get a feel for the quality of my albums.

It's my birthday today and the first person to post on my timeline said she hoped my day would be filled with dog smiles. What a perfect day that would be! This photo of Zari is from a commercial shoot I did recently. Hopefully I get to see many more happy smiley dog faces today 🐶 @peitynandzari --- I encourage regram-ing and sharing to Facebook, but please do not download or repost without my permission. --- #ruthlessphotos #sydneydogs #dogsofsydney #canberradogs #dogsofcanberra #yearofthedog #rescuedog #workingdog #petbarn #winterdog #dogsinhats

#TailsofSydney star @Noahs.Bark27 came along for little brother @Toby.Wan.Kenobi14 ‘s #SquishyFaceCrewbook shoot. I suggested doing a photo of them together. I guess Toby didn't think much of my idea 😝. --- I encourage regram-ing and sharing to Facebook, but please do not download or repost without my permission. --- #ruthlessphotos #sydneydogs #dogsofsydney #canberradogs #dogsofcanberra #yearofthedog #frenchie #frenchbulldog #bulldog #britishbulldog #squishyfacecrew #flatnosesociety

After stalking this family on Instagram for several months I decided they just had to be the cover stars of my #squishyfacecrewbook - I have no regrets!! Thank you @larger.than.lurch, Marge, Oprah and Wilma for being perfect models. Thank you @nickvisser for assisting me and thank you @troyparaphernalia for designing me another gorgeous book (I can’t wait to share the rest of it with you all in November!).

A couple of months ago @FetchingDogs held their annual trivia night. I donated a prize to the silent auction – the winner would get their dog photographed for the cover of my "Rescued" calendar. I've never given that spot to anyone before, usually the cover image is an adoption photo, so it was snapped up pretty fast. This is Banjo, but I think we should rename him Super Banjo and get that man a cape! He was adopted from Fetching Dogs before me, or anyone else, ever got to meet him. This isn't the cover image, I'll wait until I launch my calendars and diary later in the year to share that one.
