Prepare yourselves for an overdose of cuteness, because March 23 is National Puppy Day! Established in 2006, National Puppy Day is a paw-some day for all dog enthusiasts to celebrate unconditional love and fawn over the undeniably cute furballs that bring so much happiness into this world.

While we’re all softies when it comes to our four-legged friends, today is also designed to raise awareness about puppy mills and help prospective pet owners consider adoption.

Hi! My name is whisky and I’m a good old boy that loves to herd cattle and run with my dad.

I’m so focused and well trained, Lisa’s funny noises didn’t work on me 😂. She figured out that I love food but I’m also super picky with my treats, she however found one that I liked. Which is good, because I rather run and play then sit in one spot too long.

AP PHOTOS: Ukrainians fleeing war 'can't leave' pets behind

🥺

Mounds of abandoned clothes and other personal items lie strewn along corridors leading out of Ukraine. The farther people carry their things, the harder it is, so they leave them behind, said Ludmila Sokol, a gym teacher fleeing Zaporizhzhia in the south.

I can’t keep my dog because….
We just don’t have time for them.
We have to move.
We just had a new baby.
We don’t have a big enough home.
The kids don’t help anymore.
The kids are allergic.
The dog is too hyper.
The dog is too lazy.
The dog is having trouble housetraining.
The dog got too big.
The dog escapes out of our yard.

EXCUSES. All of them. If your pet means enough to you, you will find a way.
if the Ukrainians can do it, so can you.

Pray for the people and animals in the Ukraine.

Never stop learning:

I decided to further my education when switched for creative portrait photographer to pet photographer. They are completely different and take different set of skills to capture beautiful images. One of the things I wanted to learn was how dog trainers work with dogs, so I studied and got my dog training certificate!!!

I’m not going to be a dog trainer but I believe it will help me be a better pet photographer.

What I learned:
How to train puppies, including crate training, teaching them to stay quiet and avoid whining or howling and training them to come when called.

How to train older dogs with regard to socialization issues, overcoming anxiety/shyness, controlling aggression and teaching proper behavior in general.

How to train dogs to stop nuisance barking, submissive urination and regulate eating behaviors.

Training techniques to train rescued/abused dogs and how to train dogs for security, companionship and therapy purposes.

Before I became a pet photographer, I was a creative portrait photographer for women. I encouraged them to step outside their comfort zone and do something for themselves. To have a makeover and a creative glamor photo shoot.

It’s incredibly empowering when I can combine both passions and photography styles. Even better when we become great friends along the way.

That was an interesting snow storm this morning in northern Utah. It reminded me that I haven’t shared Kiesen’s photos from our shoot in the snow a few weeks ago. It was such a fun adventure hiking with him and his pet parents to snowy locations along the trail in bountiful.

Certain people (and dogs) are meant to enter into your life and have an impact on it. We may not always see the change they make in our lives right away but it could change the course of your life.

Thank you Kira Kahlke and Brutus (the adorable doggo) for coming into my life and inspiring me to start pet photography.

Judy, a purebred pointer, was the mascot of several ships in the Pacific, and was captured by the Japanese in 1942 and taken to a prison camp. There she met Aircraftsman Frank Williams, who shared his small portion of rice with her.

Judy raised morale in the POW camp, and also barked when poisonous snakes, crocodiles or even tigers approached the prisoners. When the prisoners were shipped back to Singapore, she was smuggled out in a rice sack, never whimpering or betraying her presence to the guards.

The next day, that ship was torpedoed. Williams pushed Judy out of a porthole in an attempt to save her life, even though there was a 15-foot drop to the sea. He made his own escape from the ship, but was then recaptured and sent to a new POW camp.

He didn't know if Judy had survived, but soon he began hearing stories about a dog helping drowning men reach pieces of debris after the shipwreck. And when Williams arrived at the new camp, he said: "I couldn’t believe my eyes! As I walked through the gate, a scraggly dog hit me square between the shoulders and knocked me over. I’d never been so glad to see the old girl!"

They spent a year together at that camp in Sumatra. "Judy saved my life in so many ways," said Williams. "But the greatest of all was giving me a reason to live. All I had to do was look into those weary, bloodshot eyes and ask myself: 'What would happen to her if I died?' I had to keep going."

Once hostilities ceased, Judy was then smuggled aboard a troopship heading back to Liverpool. In England, she was awarded the Dickin Medal (the "Victoria Cross" for animals) in May 1946. Her citation reads: "For magnificent courage and endurance in Japanese prison camps, which helped to maintain morale among her fellow prisoners, and also for saving many lives through her intelligence and watchfulness".

At the same time, Frank Williams was awarded the PDSA's White Cross of St. Giles for his devotion to Judy. Frank and Judy spent a year after the war visiting the relatives of English POWs who had not survived, and Frank said that Judy "always provided a comforting presence to the families."

When Judy finally died at the age of 13, Frank spent two months building a granite and marble memorial in her memory, which included a plaque describing her life story.

I often meet people who ask their dogs to do something because they are "supposed to". As if a well-trained dog should fit into a mold that society thinks they should - without ever asking ourselves why we want our dogs to do a certain thing.

Waiting to go through a doorway may be the one I see the most often and is rarely executed as the owner intended. A new client will come to our building and they hold their dog back from entering, often repeating the phrase "wait, wait, wait". As I watch there is no indication the dog actually knows what is being asked of them OR they are too excited to register the command. Eventually, either by making the right "guess" or by giving up, they stop trying to enter and the owner lets them inside. Sometimes it's clear they may enter by a release word, other times the release is just as unclear as the wait itself.

It's always stressful on both sides of the leash, the coming and going, and leaves me once again wondering how this became such a struggle between so many dogs and humans. When asked people tell me that they won't allow their dog to rush a door, it's bad manners, or they need to respect them. Sometimes I don't, as it appears the human feels the need to show that their dog can behave. I see a lot in these interactions, but I rarely address the doorway battle in a first lesson.

I see the doorway as a safety precaution, it's not about "manners". A dog that dashes to the other side impulsively is not thinking. They are not prepared for what awaits them, and most are too excited to listen in the event there is something we need to protect them from - such as a busy street or stranger. I don't require a sit, down, or watch, for permission to go outside. But I do require calmness, stillness, and the ability to listen for a release.

A doorway is simply another choice game. Instead of fighting to control the dog, I focus on controlling the resource. In this case, the resource is access to whatever is waiting on the other side. If my dog is dashing forward or overexcited I simply deny access by closing the gate or door. When the correct choice is made I reopen the door, if they start forward it closes. No words are said, it isn't a battle. It is clear communication to my dog. Calmness opens the door, barking and excitement do not. After they are calm I release them.

By limiting my words it is easier for the dog to learn what I want. By teaching them, rather than showing them, they learn to make better choices when I am not there. You never know when someone may leave the door open unintentionally and you aren't there to tell your dog to "wait". Making the right choices leads to excellent manners (because you get to teach them which ones are right for you!) and may just save your dog's life.
