Make the days count


What does your pet love to do? Swimming? Running? Playing ball? Book you pet's photo session and we'll come out to your pet's favourite place to play and create wonderful photos of him making the days count.

Congratulations Monty!


Congratulations Henry (now Monty) on your recent adoption! This sweet boy met his awesome new family at Pet Fest. Coleridge is looking forward to play-dates with Monty this summer!

Pet Fest!

Join the Theater District businesses as we kick off the first of many festivals taking place on Bridge Street.   
Come out on May 10th for the Bridge Street Pet Fest, and bring your four footed friends too!  This is a fun filled event for pet lovers and will be located right on Bridge Street in front of our shop, West Wind.  There will be all sorts of fun activities for the whole family.
Just in time for Mother's Day, at West Wind we'll have special promotions for animal lovers, you can meet our HART foster dogs, and of course our store mascot Coleridge will be giving out puppy kisses.  We will be doing photos and will have special discounts for pet portraits.
We'll see you there!

PSA for local rescue

Our boy Coleridge poses beautifully for this photo for a Public Service Announcement for our local animal rescue group HART and their Newf division Newf Friends.   With rainfall warnings and flood advisories in effect, area waterways are very dangerous right now.


Cuteness Overload!


So cute we can barely stand it!

In our studio on Saturday we had 10 day old Nigerian Dwarf goats.   How adorable!

Book your pet's session today!  You can come to our studio, or we'll come to you.
