Hello everyone, CEO Olivia reporting. Today I have some deeply moving portraits to show you. Photographer Traer Scott was inspired to capture these beautiful dogs while volunteering at an animal shelter.

Her work has been exhibited around the world & has appeared in National Geographic, Time, Life Magazine, & The New York Times among others. Traer was the recipient of the 2008 Helen Woodward Humane Award for animal welfare activism. She lives in Providence, Rhode Island.

It’s a sad thing that we need animal shelters. We at Knotty Toys for Good Dogs believe in “adopt don’t shop”.

Glass Dog Portraits

Canine Culture

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia here. Did you know you can sketch on glass? With special tools you can “carve” an image right into a piece of glass. Or you can sand blast an imagine into the glass. Either way, the results can be pawsome. Have a look.

Have a wooftastic weekend.
