Fun with Pets

As many of you know my daughter, Janae, has been very into her pet photography and dressing her pets for Halloween. She has done some amazing portraits for the contest! On my sidebar there is a link to her blog if you want to check it out. Anyway--today we went to the instore Petsmart pet contest. I was so proud of both of my daughters and how they dressed their pets, and themselves!


Here they are at Petsmart. This is Bunny biker Fufu with biker Mama Janae and Pirate Walter the hamster with Mama Pirate Chantel.



They had to sit calmly for over a half hour when people went on and on about how cute they were and took pictures. People were especially impressed with Fufu--because most people have not seen a bunny so well trained. There was only once that it seemed Fufu and Walter planned it and they both tried to escape at the same time. :)
 
 
Chantel and Walter led the pet parade around the store.
 
 

They had their pictures taken by many.



The lighting in Petsmart was horrible so I am not going to win any photography awards but you can see the fun they had.


Janae and Fufu won first and Chantel and Walter won third. The prizes aren't big for the in store contest --they got some cute toys and Fufu got a $10 gift certificate and Walter got a $5 gift certificate. Walter was especially thrilled with his toy. He chewed on it all the way home. Now we have our fingers crossed they do well in the online contest--top prize there is $10,000.00!

So I will end this post with a photo of the boys taken during spirit week. It can't be all about the girls:) This is the boys on Super Hero day--I made their capes. What cute kids I have!


Thanks for visiting!
