Whoopie! (Pie): The Return of Lump Day – St. Cloud Pet Photography / Lifestyle Photography

Written by Jen on . Posted in Fur and Feather Friends, Lump Day, The Art of You - Portrait Goodness

Hello happy blog world!

It has been FAR too long. Just one of those months, I guess. I’ve been planning this Lump Day post for quite awhile. The timing just never really worked out. Ben and I were out of town, then just busy bees getting things ready for clients, and overall just never really getting to it. Normally I have all day on Wednesday to capture Daisy for Lump Day. But for this particular post, Ben needed to be present – which made things a little trickier.

This morning, the stars aligned and I am happy to be able to present you with an extra special, long awaited, Lump Day Whoopie Pie EXTRAVAGANZA!

Ok. So here’s the story behind the whoopie pie :)

About a month ago, Ben and I were in search of a Dog Bakery. I needed to purchase a gift for the lovely and talented Sara Kauss, who was kind enough to come to Minnesota and speak to the MNPPA. Knowing Sara has two lovely doggie babies, I thought some goodies for them would be the perfect gift! And they were – once we finally located the bakery……

It was one of those weird days, when you drive around and could SWEAR what you were looking for was RIGHT THERE! And its not. And you have know idea where you need to go to find what you’re looking for. But, damnit, I WANT SOME TASTY DOGGIE GOODIES!

FINALLY, Ben and he’s awesome internet and driving skills got us to Lulu and Luigi.  ( http://www.luluandluigi.com/ )  And it is amazing! Cookies, clothes, EVERYTHING to pamper your pooch! It was devine! We just couldn’t leave with out getting Daisy something fun.

And then we saw the Whoopie Pie.

I mean, seriously!? This is a DOG cookie!? How awesome is this thing!? WE wanted to eat it! I looks so amazing and colorful and huge and wonderful! It has been KILLING me to see it on the shelf, waiting patiently for schedules to work (and Daisy’s belly to not be rumbly – there have been days in between that I could have given it to her, but I really didn’t want to clean up whoopie pie puke…..) It was so great to finally give her this awesome goodie!

And she loved it.

Our happy girl after her special treat. Oh the things we do for our kids :)

Happy Lump Day everyone – thanks for your patience!

Enjoy.

Waiting For Daddy – St. Cloud Pet / Lifestyle Photographer

Written by Jen on . Posted in Fur and Feather Friends, Lump Day, The Art of You - Portrait Goodness

Hello Hello!

This week’s Lump Day post is inspired by Daisy and my morning walks. Just about every morning – well, seeing as we do live in Minnesota, let’s make that May-October mornings, Daisy and I will go for a walk. And on the nights that Ben works, our morning walk will frequently be to go and get Daddy as he’s finishing up his shift. (A little game for those of you who don’t already know – can you guess where Ben works by the photograph?)

Daisy LOVES these walks. Its basically 3 miles full of happy smells that she gets to drag Mommy all over town in a quest to find Daddy. LUMPY HEAVEN.

And when we do arrive, she will get as close to the door as physically possible and wait.

Watching.

Pondering how she might get in there so she can find him faster – although she’s never actually made it farther than the vestibule (not for lack of trying though).

She just may make it in one of these days. All the ladies adore her. “She could pass for a service dog, right? Just bring her on in!”

(At this, Ben and I normally bust out laughing. Daisy is by no means graceful. Especially on linoleum floors. It is, by far, one of the most amusing, falling down silly dog dances you will ever see. She gets so excited and moves so fast, she’s all legs – splayed out all over the floor. The day pigs fly is the day Daisy will pass for a service dog.)

But anywho, today was another lovely morning filled with a lovely walk to Daddy. The complete joy she has when he walks out that door always brings a smile to my face.

What a great way to start Lump Day.

Enjoy.
