Holiday Pet Portrait - Guido the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

For #throwbackthursday, this is still my favorite holiday pet portrait, taken at a 2012 photo shoot I did in San Francisco, California, as a fundraiser for Animal Care & Control San Francisco at Bernie's Grooming City Dogs.

This handsome Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Guido trotted in with a Santa hat in his mouth. It was supposed to end up on his head, but he was so pleased to be carrying it that we just left him to it. So cute we could hardly stand it.

Patrick Saunders particularly liked Guido because he didn't need any help posing. (Patrick was roped into playing Santa that day to help wrangle nervous dogs, and survived the experience with only one minor head injury.) - Kimberly

Pet Portrait Photo Shoot - Perry the Yorkshire Terrier

It was hard waiting to post outtakes from this pet portrait photo shoot, and Patrick Saunders' painting, because Perry is a hoot, and so stinking cute. His lovely family pulled off a great Christmas surprise.
