Going for the dogs

Jenna Forbis, right, caresses her Chihuahua, Rex, while her boyfriend, Dustin Stewart, holds Lulu, her other Chihuahua, during a photo session with photographer Orville Clark on Sunday at Award Pet Supply. Assistants help the photographer get the dogs’ attention by waving feathers and toys before the dogs. The shop owners, Chuck and Bobbi Everett, organize photo shoots for pet owners every year before Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter and in October for fall pictures. Most of the money that results from selling pictures to dog owners goes to Columbia Second Chance organization.

Baker and Thomas bring their dogs for pictures every time the shop organizes photo sessions. The three German shepherds are kept at Baker's family's farm in Millersburg. The shop owners, Chuck and Bobbi Everett, organize photo shoots for pet owners every year before Christmas, Valentine's Day, Easter and in October for fall pictures. They started the photo sessions in 2000 when they opened the shop and Clark has been part of the initiative since the beginning. Clark doesn't charge money for his time, and most all of the money that results from selling the pictures to the owners go to the Columbia Second Chance organization. Pet owners can have a sheet that contains a 5x7 picture and 4 wallet size images for $10.

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.
