you will have to share the portraits for this with us who aren't in the area---puppy pic breaks get me through my week :)

hi mindy! cuteness! we are going to offer multiple dogs with an additional fee (TBD). all money raised goes directly to NKLA though, so it'll be worth it!

@mary- you know i won't be able to help myself!!! :)

I love this! I'm trying to convince my friends to take their pups (and I'll go w/ to say hi to y'all!) Such a cute idea!

This is such a great idea! I wish we were in the area because we would be front and center!
