One of our Blazingstar dogs lives with the very talented owner of Nearly Naked Neckwear in Calgary. Christine makes gorgeous collars. She generously made 705 cotton collars (yes, really 705!) out of a variety of colourful fabric as a fund raiser for the FCRSC's National Specialty. They are for sale for $15 each, with $5 from each sale going to the Specialty. We helped her out by photographing 235 of them (one of each design). With an assembly line going and Adobe Lightroom to help with the post-processing, it went surprisingly quickly.
Here is just one of them:

They were hard to resist! We already have quite a few of Christine's collars and don't really need more, but we did cave and buy these two:
As well as photographing collars, it was great to visit with Christine and her 4 dogs (collar models!). Here is her gang:
And here's the gorgeous Willow, Blazingstar Brown Buffalobean, now 3 years old.
