Handsome FB

Sterling staring away in a distinguished fashion

So just before the Holidays we had this very special DUDE in the house, celebrating some exceptional achievements. We’ve loved him since we met him 4 years ago but we had no idea that besides being such a handsome devil he’s so accomplished. His whole Curriculum Vitae is long, but for those in a hurry here’s a highlight precis.

He bears the name of the The Sterling Award For Outstanding Achievement In Therapy”,   created by the national French Bulldog Club of America.

Sterling had a very successful show career and completed his championship when he was 18 months old.

Between 2010 and early 2012, Sterling along with his owner Darlene Abbott had already made more than 50 Hospice visits to assist in end-of-life and palliative care for adult and pediatric patients.

He is certified as a BARK Dog (Beach Animals Reading with Kids). BARK is a volunteer program that encourages children to increase their reading skills and self-confidence by reading aloud to certified therapy dogs

He is one of the first dogs to earn and receive the Therapy Dog (THD) title established by the American Kennel Club (AKC).

In 2015 he progressed to the Distinguished Level and the only French Bulldog to attain this level, which requires more than 400 recorded and verified visits to schools, hospitals, libraries, or nursing homes.




We lots of the members of staff from the Newport Animal Hospital over at the studio to take their pictures for a very dramatic piece of wall art for the Hospital foyer.newport animal hospital


They were great, the humans all behaved as well as their pets and as you can see the piece looks fantastic. If you are looking for an excellent veterinarian in Newport Coast they might be for you.

Here’s the video slideshow

And here’s a gallery of images, you’ve got to love the bulldog that sits like a penguin.

Our latest photos from our photoshoot with the Sachi Rescue!

So a couple of weeks ago we posted some of the company dogs from Wags and Wiggles, one of whom was recently on TV being very agile, well this week se are onto a very new member of the pack and her guardian

These guys came into the studio for Lilouette’s first “Puppy’s First Year” project, big bundle of mischievous, non-sleeping, super super cute doginess.

We’ll be shooting her every 2 months for the next year to chart her progress, so check back or go over to Wags and Wiggles to check out the photographs that will soon grace their walls, and spend a few minutes watching the small dogs at play from the window in reception, FUZZ THERAPY gone wild.


So we went up to the  Animal Assistance League of Orange County (AALOC) just off beach to set up a photobooth for the dogs and see if we could capture as many dogs personalities as we could in couple of hours before we passed out in the heat. We got 19 of them and boy did we get some personalities.


Check out the galleries and forward to anyone you think could use a little more love in their lives.

Big shout out to Guinnevere Shuster Social Media Co-ordinator at the Humane Society of Utah article who came up with this brilliant doggy photobooth idea.




Cute attack!





I can’t promise to fix all your problems but I can promise you won’t have to face them alone

We know you’ll be putting up your pet’s portraits where they’ll look their best, but you might also want to consider adding a quote or some message that’s important to you then placing your artwork where you can see it on a daily or hourly basis.


Here’s one we prepared earlier this year, Gracie’s a little Yorkire, her mom loves her, and what better way to always carry her in her heart.


So a couple of months ago JUST FOOD FOR DOGS made a video for the LA based rescue organization PUG NATION at our studio in Costa Mesa, Orange County. It was chaos but pugs being pugs the video turned out brilliantly as you can see below. We’ve also included some portraits (forgive us that they are not as sharp as usual as we were shooting under video lights) for your delectation.

If you are LA based and feel the need for a pug in your life, and who doesn’t? then click here to visit PUG NATION to see who’s up for adoption.



If you are Orange County we have our own brilliant pug rescue PUGS AND PALS who always have lots of pugs up for adoption.

Also for one of the best dog events of the year don’t miss PUGTOBERFEST it’ll make you smile for weeks.

Rescued, got diabetes, got treated, got loved and enjoying the golden years

Dusty is a 15 year old Terrier Mix. He was found as a stray 14 years ago in the street of Santa Ana. He was moved to the Laguna Beach shelter where is was adopted by his Dads and the rest is history! Dusty needs to know where both his parents are at all time, pacing the house to find each of them. He was diagnosed with sugar diabetes over a year ago and was given 6 months. We are glad he proved everyone wrong and is enjoying life with his parents and two siblings!

Here’s his video…….
