Moe was returned twice from homes before he finally found love with Theresa. So sweet!

This bright eyed happy friend was staying in the Cat Condo area whilst his parents traveled.

The 'boys' james & isaak (yes...Theresa is a Chris Isaak fan. Could I love her more?)

This little one enjoyed a snack while his mommy shopped. YUM!

James + Theresa

He really isn't snarly...just caught him in mid 'lick of the chops'. This shot made his mommy laugh. :)

"muumph..I LOVE my tug :)"

Recently I was asked to take some new website photos for Dogstar, a full service dog/cat boarding + day care + grooming + FABU-LOS retail store located at 1313 NW Kearney in the Pearl District. Really? I get to get to spend the day with a bunch of pups and kits AND my camera? Pinch me!

To say I had fun is an understatement. After being there for over 4 hours.. they had to shoe me away. Seriously, I wouldn't leave.

Theresa {the owner/operator of Dogstar}, Moe {the mega toed desk kitty!}, and james and isaak {doggie greeters extraordinaire} are so welcoming....I felt like one of the family right away.

I was even given a quick lesson on being a pack leader and allowed to frolic in the doggie day care area with about 15 pups. Hello, what an amazing feeling that was! Takes me back to my childhood {deedley..deedley..deedley.. I am 8 months old, wearing the BiGgest sheepy grin cuz I just crawled into the whelping pen with 3 day old collie puppies. me + puppies = delight!!}

The dogs at Dogstar want for nothing. Toys...treats...friends to play with...the COOLEST ceiling rope tug..and space to just chill, they have it made!

Theresa has also partnered with Pixie project and works tirelessly to find homes for the sweet dogs & cats that need.. well.. YOU! :) Come down and snuggle a kitty, or walk one of the many dogs that are looking for a home. You might find that special someone to fill your heart with love.

Really, I can't say enough about this place. {truly, this post was about 10 pages long, thank God for the delete key!!} Theresa is one of the kindest most generous souls around. She has created an amazing environment for you & your pet.

I came away from my time at Dogstar with a giant smile and a sense that life really is good.
