Alisha Todd Photography


Hans and Odie a.k.a. Sausage & Sanchez had their photo’s taken by the lovely Alisha from Alisha Todd Photography last week and she has sent me through a Teaser I just had to share with you all. I think this photo of Han’s pretty much sums up his personality. CHEEKY! I can’t wait to see more photos…

Helping out a good Cause

Animal Welfare League of Qld

The Animal Welfare League of Qld is very close to Sausage & Sanchez’s heart because both Hans Sausage and Odie Sanchez came from their Gold Coast shelter. This is why we just had to be apart of their newest creative community initative; Craft 4 Cats.

Craft 4 Cats is an exciting community project that will raise money specifically for their cat and kitten rehoming program and allow all cat-lovers and animal-welfare advocates to get involved and help spread the word about shelter cats in need.

The AWLQ is currently full to the brim with Cats and Kittens in all 3 of their shelters because people are surrendering their pets unplanned litters. The warmer months see un-desexed Cats breed in huge numbers which is why the non-profit organisation created the National Desexing Network.

Craft 4 Cats will be a fun way to keep the kids busy over the school holiday’s while teaching them the importance of choosing to adopt and to desex their pets.

Get Involved

There are two ways to get involved in the project

1) Make a Cat Softie

2) ‘Adopt’ a Cat Softie

If you choose to make a Softie, you can either download a pattern that suits your ability level (there is a pattern to suit the experienced right through to the basic level crafter!) or you can make one ‘free-hand’.

Whichever way you choose, make sure you check out the examples They’ve provided and read the ‘tips’ section first. This is to ensure that all the softies made are of consistent size, style and quality.

Remember – you don’t need to be a professional sewer or crafter to make a Cat Softie! You can be a total amateur and still create something lovely to contribute to the project! What’s important is that you put your love into it 🙂

If you choose not to make a Softie, then you can still get involved in Craft 4 Cats! All you need to do is ‘adopt’ of our handmade Softies for a small donation. All our Softies will be available to adopt for a donation of either $10 or $20 (depending on the size and the detail of the creation). The AWLQ will be posting photos of the Softies up on their online store as they come into us, so there will be plenty of opportunity to ‘adopt’ a Cat Softie that’s just right for you!

Underwater Dogs

Photographers, Uncategorized

I am a HUGE fan of L.A based photographer Seth Casteel from Little Friends Photo. Not only is this guy involved in animal welfare projects but he has a genuine love for dogs that you can see throughout his work. I especially love his underwater series of photos especially the ones of a Dachshund that looks ALOT like Hans Sausage.

Animal Welfare League of Qld Dog promotion

Animal Welfare League of Qld, Uncategorized

From the 2nd to the 8th of April the Animal Welfare League of Qld is offering $100 off the adoption fee on all their brindle and marble coloured dogs.

Brindle dogs are brown and black and can sometimes be overlooked by visitors to the AWLQ shelters.

The majority of the Leagues long term dogs are brindle in colour so they decided to have a promotion highlighting the fact that these beautiful dogs cannot go un-noticed. Until the 8th of April they are offering $100 off the adoption price of all their Brindle coloured dogs as well as giving away a free rehoming pack which includes shampoo,treats and toys.

Medium and large dog’s adoption fees currently start at $240 this means Queensland families can now adopt a new pet from as little as $140. Puppies start from $350 bringing it down to $250 for a brindle puppy.

All the dogs that are available for adoption are de sexed, micro chipped, fully vaccinated and wormed and are very eager to please.

The shelter is open throughout the Easter break (except Good Friday) and they encourage anyone looking to adopt an animal to come and visit.

I was always a big dog person but upon being blessed with my two hearbeats at my feet, (Hans Sausage and Odie Sanchez) I must admit I get a lot little excited when I see a celeb with a Chihuahua or a Dachshund. Of course there are the obvious Paris Hilton’s and her popstar wannabe friends, but check out a few other people below who also love Sausage and Sanchez, (you may be surprised)..

1. Adele with her darling Dachshund

2. Picasso with Lump (the sausage that appeared in a lot of his later work)

3. Ashley Olsen and her Daxie

4. Marilyn Monro and her Chihuahua

5.Adrian Brody with his Ceelo

6. I know this isn’t a Dachshund or a Chihuahua, but Ryan Gossling is hot and his dog looks like a Bear.
