  • Please tell us anything else about your dog that you would like us to know. Henry is a typical Aussie; very sweet, very manipulative and so so busy. We have a basket of toys for him on every level of the house just to keep his mind busy so he doesn’t get bored and make bad decisions.  He is such a family orientated dog and had been the best companion for our 2 boys.  He puts up with all of the things they want to do with him and for him.  Although he can be high maintenance, its all worth it.  He is the perfect addition to our family.

Dog Day Getaway’s Dog of the Month photography is brought to you by Kasey and Tyler Rajotte of Studio Twelve:52/Twelve:52 Pets. They have 5 rescue pups of their own – (all fittingly named after Marvel comic book characters) – who also love coming to DDG. So, chances are your furkid(s) and theirs have played together! This is their 11th year documenting wagging tails, nose boops, and slobbery puppy kisses – and when they aren’t doing that they are photographing weddings and families.
