The sun was shining down on the Silver Spoon Hollywood Dog and Baby Buffet that lasted two beautiful days. I felt like I was at a carnival, but it was even better because I didn't have to play any competitive games to win a prize. I strolled around the pet corner finding fabulous products to spoil your dog or cat. After all, they deserve it, pets are known for soothing the human soul. They take care of you so why not take care of them with extra special goodies such has grooming products to make your pet's coat shine or nutritious snacks and food that will keep them healthy and happy. But the guest got a lot more to pamper their pets.

Dog photography by Frank Bryunbroek. Frank began taking dog pictures for a rescue organization newsletter and fell in love with it. He gets a 'high' from taking pictures. His love for dogs shows on his work--he feels in his heart that 'dogs are amazing: their instinct, unconditional love, their complex simplicity, and their devotion. They have the innocence of childhood. The wit of a wise chief. The vulnerability of a good teacher. I love to watch my dogs when they are sleeping.' His current book gives him an opportunity to make a difference with his art. www.fbsite.com
