Coming up: the HSSC Adoptathon!

Tomorrow, May 2nd, is the Humane Society of Sarasota County’s 9th Annual Adoptathon! It is going to be a fun and exciting event where a lot of wonderful pets hope to find forever homes. There will be cool pet-related vendors and a large raffle with lots of awesome prizes. The event lasts from 10 am – 7 pm, which means that there will be plenty of time for a lot of people to stop by! Even if you’re not looking to adopt a pet, you can come and visit the vendors. One of those vendors will be me! Yes, Emilee Fuss Photography will have a table and photography display. We’ll have some discount session cards for adoptathon attendees. Also, we’re donating a Studio + Location Session with (1) 8×10 print to the raffle!

So please stop by and support the HSSC and all of the great work that they do! And don’t forget to come say “hi” to us! Olivia will be there too, so if you want to come see the adorable blog star, come on by. :) Olivia’s trainer will have a vendor booth as well, so the crazy puppy will have to be on her best behavior.

I have also added a new section to my website called “Events”. I will post about different events that I will be attending, such as this adoptathon, and upcoming photo days. Keep checking back there for more fun stuff coming up!

Because no post is complete without a picture, here is the Livy-bear waiting for me to throw her toy as she stands in the evening sun (my new fave):

Adventure of the day

It seems like animals are always showing up around here. I’ve found injured birds, abandoned bunnies, and big black dogs (who could that be?), but I definitely do not mind them. Today was no exception.

When I was walking Buddy, I noticed some birds freaking out about something in our neighbor’s driveway. That “something” was another bird, which they were mercilessly attacking. The victim had probably gotten to close to the other birds’ nest. When the others flew away, I was able to scoop up the frightened bird and take it home. Thankfully, Buddy ignores birds, so he didn’t act up at all. It looked like the bird had injured a wing, because he held it out away from his body and would not fly. After he calmed down a bit, I put him on a towel beneath a tree in our backyard. It didn’t take long for his strength to return. I went outside to check on him every few minutes, and to take a couple of photos. After a short while, he hopped off into the overgrown lot behind our house. I caught some brief glimpses of him when I went outside today, but now he’s gone. Hopefully, little bird recovered and flew off to his home, safe and sound.

So that was my adventure for the day! It always makes me feel so good to know that I did my part in saving a little life.

I googled to find out what kind of bird he was and found out that he was a Brown Thrasher. His eyes make him look very fierce, but he was actually calm and gentle. :)

claire - aw, he is a cute little fella. we had the reverse story here yesterday; roux killed a squirrel in our backyard. poor little guy!

Stephanie - Really cool pics and an awesome story. I wish my dog was that calm around birds. He wants to rid the world of all birds, lizards, and bikers :)

Tracy - I’m so glad you helped that little birdie!! And even more glad she recovered! She’s so pretty!
Somehow the birds I try to save don’t have that kind of luck…

Rachel - Emilee- It seems like you always have run-ins with the coolest wildlife! Poor little bird…I’m glad you took him to safety so he could rest up.


Does anyone else want to trade places with Olivia?
