Through the months of March and April, The Photographer’s Guild in St. Paul, Minn.,  will give you a FREE pet portrait session and one FREE 8×10 print (reg. $98) when you make a tax-deductible $40 donation to Pet Haven, a wonderful local animal rescue organization, through which we adopted one of our beloved cats, Xander, and our Westie, Keely.

(I also donate $2 from every copy of my book, “Good Grief: Finding Peace After Pet Loss,” sold through this website to support Pet Haven and four other local no-kill shelters.)

Check out the Photographer’s Guild website for more info or call them at 651-646-3239. They do an absolutely FABULOUS JOB on these photos. I’ve brought in my entire pack and gotten their pics taken several years running, always for the one low price of $40. But, to be honest, you’ll probably feel the need to purchase a few more of these adorable shots from the Guild directly—unless you have superhuman powers of sales resistance when you see all the choices featuring your furry (or feathered) friends’ beautiful visage!

You still need proof? Check out my Westies, Ambrose, Keely and Blanche (this was before Oliver joined us) in their ad!!!

Below is our free 8X10 from their March 2010 photo shoot.

Memorialize ’em while you can!—Sid

I was at the Pet Project’s MN Pet Food Drive to supply local food shelves with food for hungry four-legged family members who are suffering right along with their humans during this recession. One of my co-vendors there was The Dog Perk, creators of fun, unique T-shirts, sweatshirts and other products for dog lovers.

My personal favorite (for which I’ve put in a Christmas gift request with my hubby) is “Dirtiness is next to Dogliness.” Give them a look-see, as well as the pet portraits of Sarah Beth Photography, personalized products of Personalized Pooch—more about these two on my blog’s Pet Loss Memorial Products page—and the touching, profound book, 8 State Hurricane Kate, (below) by Jenny Pavlovic. My thanks to them all for supporting the Pet Food Drive.

I’ll be sure to let you know when I learn how much food was collected at this event.

Here’s what I learned from Lisa at Fetch Delivers, one of the event’s sponsors:

Looks like we just met our goal of 10,000#’s (American Agco gave me 3000+lbs for the event) And over $800 raised and counting, as Fetch will donate some proceeds from the promo we offered to the event goers.
