Woof!3 : Lenno has his photo taken

Last week Lenno had a photoshoot! I sound crazy don't I?! I promise I haven't lost the plot - it is for a good cause so please read on!

Just before Christmas I signed Lenno up to feature in an amazing coffee table book: Woof!3. It is the third book created by Ella+Friends Photography.

Here is the cover of the first:

These books are amazing. I purchased the second book as a present for our coffee table for Christmas. The books showcase dogs of all breeds, shapes, sizes and ages with their owners. The photos are sensational and once you start looking at them you can't stop turning the pages. The third book (featuring the one and only Lenno) will be published in early 2011.

Here are a few examples of photos from the second book...

A small $75 participation fee is required and this is donated directly to a dog charity. How cool is that!? So far, they have raised over $30,000 for dog shelters. This year the funds raised will be donated to Rescue With Love Inc (

David was our photographer and he came out to our home and to Lenno's favourite park to catch him in action. He spent two intense hours with Lenno before Lenno decided he was too tired to play tricks in front of the camera any longer. David was a natural dog whisperer and Lenno loved him! I can't recommend Ella+Friends more highly, it was a great experience and Lenno had a ball.

Here is a sneak preview of one of the shots they took. Next week we will select our favourites to include in the book. (David took nearly 800 photos!).

You can visit their Woof!3 blog to see a preview of a few of the other dogs involved in the third book. (

To have your four legged family members included in this unique publication, call Ella+Friends Photography in Melbourne on (03) 9596 1310. You can check out more at But hurry as they close off entries late February 2011.


Lenno is loving Summer

Happy New Year! Last week we took Lenno to Sydney. He went on the plane in his traveling crate. He loved it and he is a real jet setter now! We were so lucky to be able to take him on our holiday and it was great to share the lovely Sydney weather with him.

His favourite adventure on the trip was definitely the walk from Bondi to Bronte. There is a sneaky little bay along the way where plenty of dogs meet, play in the rock pools and even dabble in some doggie surfing.

Here are some photos of our dear little Lenno (also known as the Otter) enjoying the waves!

The rock pools were equally as good...

After hours of fun it was home time for one very wet little dog!
