Kristy Brown, right, and Julie Trammell, left, help photographer Orville Clark by waving feathers and toys to get the attention of a border collie on Sunday at Award Pet Supply in Columbia. Brown is a volunteer for Columbia Second Chance organization. Trammell is a New Bloomfield resident and accompanied her friend Carol Green and her border collie, Parker, to get the dog's picture taken. Clark said that over the years he had the chance to photograph all kinds of pets, including, cats, lizards, iguanas, birds and even a pig. Clark said it is easy to work with the pig, and that the most difficult pets that he has to work with are cats because they tend to get scared. Also, Clark admitted that he doesn't like snakes and said he wouldn't want to have to photograph one.
