This was Paul’s assignment from Design News Magazine for the monthly article on “Gadget Freaks”. These three young inventors designed a dog door that will only open for your dog. You can also program the gadget to feed and water your K-9 family member. The inventors didn’t have a dog of their own for the photo shoot so we hired a real pro – our own pooch, Rico. He was well paid in dog biscuits and half of a “Big Daddy Burger” from Good Times. It was hard for him to go through the door since it was designed for miniature poodles or smaller, but if we had a dog that small, how could the dog wear protective OSHA eye gear?
Finally! I’ve been meaning to do this for some time, there are so many fun things that happen at our studio that I’d love to share. I’ve been on the “mommy track” the last couple of years so that is my excuse for not doing this sooner ( : We have a three year old son, Luke and an 18 month old daughter, Sophia… and of course, our fur baby, Rico – a 5 year old lab mix. I am going to try to keep this blog mostly about our photography but forgive me if I wax on about the little ones from time to time, they are a huge part of my life! Looking forward to an awesome 2008!
