About A Dog Photography in St. Cloud, St. Paul & Minneapolis MN |  52 Weeks is a blog circle with a theme for every week (which means we all link to each other, links are found at the end of the post).


The scene: a massive lodge, designed and curated for dogs with a massive fireplace, ornate chandelier and oodles of collars, toys and foods for dogs. (The location is Stone Mountain Pet Lodge an upscale dog boarding and doggie daycare.) In the massive indoor play area, there are a collection of vendors (Dog Gone Sassy & Val’s Brew Treats, Pet Wants, an antler vendor, CBD oils and a pocket of others) along the walls as well as the booths for Doberman Rescue MN (bake sale & swag, dig in!). About A Dog was tucked in near the window, next to the tail end of the DRMN swag table, a weathered wood backdrop hung and proceeds from the portraits going to the rescue.

The event: Dobe-O-Rama, an annual fundraiser and meet and greet for adoptable dobermans

When the time arrived, the doors were opened, the trickling of people building into a swell that flooded to the baked goods, swag and the tasties from Gouda Q (the brisket sandwich was so much yum!). Once they had their fill, they strolled, with dog or dogless, around the vendors, dropped raffle tickets in for winnings and gave the agility course a run through.

Most of the dogs in attendance were dobermans or mixes making it really easy to spot the non doberman dogs – a big 6 year old Leonberger, a Dalmatian puppy, a shepherd mix, a border collie and a few others meandered around with their owners.

Presenting the adoptables: Cooper, Rio, Andy, Hercules, Zak, Maximus, Reina, Rocco and Sassy!

And since the theme is leash removal, here are some before & afters!
