Behind the Scenes with The Pitch’s Canine Models #PitchBOKC
Facebook friends and fans know by now that Scooby the elderpin was made famous yesterday.
A large photo of him standing on his tippy toes appears in the The Pitch newspaper’s annual Best of Kansas City issue, which hit news stands yesterday.
As you can imagine, the attention is going to his head. He likes to hang out near his photo spread and keeps demanding extra treats. Last night, the little prima donna tried to steal a steak bone from Luke.
I sure hope his little ego doesn’t get him into trouble with the other dogs when he goes to Kennel Creek Pet Resort for daycare.
I can just see him hustling some other dog’s girl out in the play yard. “Have you ever snuggled someone famous? Wanna go back to my private suite?”
At least I can say that on the night of the actual photo shoot, Scooby was a gentleman.
In fact, as the oldest gentleman at the studio, he got to be photographed first.
Camera man Chris Mullins and Pitch Art Director Ashford Stamper recognized the little old guy’s star quality as soon as he began dancing for snacks. (Dude got so excited over Beggin’ Strips he danced right off the prop box at one point.)
Because I had to help the elderpin pose, I don’t have any shots of him being shot. But I did snap a few images of the other cute pups in attendance that night.
Not all of the dogs who appear in the Best Of issue were part of our shoot.
Our friend and cover boy Dusty Rhodes was part of a previous session.
You can read more about him – and how he’s rocking my products – in yesterday’s post at BeerPaws.com.
If you live around Kansas City, I highly recommend picking up a copy of The Pitch’s Best Of issue.
In addition to the adorable photos, it is packed with great writing and is sure to turn you on to some new places and faces unique to the metro.
It’s worth looking into even if you aren’t from Kansas City. You can view it online.
And if you really want a hard copy, let me know. Maybe I can get Mr. Famous Elderpin to put his paw print on a copy that I can mail.
