This post is for everyone in the last year who has shown me an iPhone photo of their dog and said, “My dog is cuter when he’s not [fill in the blank].” And it’s for those people who ask why the heck I would choose to work with pets over people (answer: I really love animals). And I guess it’s for those people who say, “Great pictures. You must have a really nice camera! My photos never turn out like that”

Nice camera or not, even the best intentions and preparation can result in some pretty disastrous–but funny–photos. Here are a few of my favorite photos that will never make it over the mantel.

I don’t always run. But when I do, I slap my eye with my mouth.

Boxer butts. I could fill a whole album with photos like these. Someday I will.
