Welcome to the Dogs of Artis series! This week we met this little ball of energy, Nigel, and his human, Bird! Nigel was so excited to meet everyone that came up to say hi that he could barely stay on all four feet the entire time we were having coffee! It was definitely a challenge trying to get him to stay still long enough for me to press the shutter button, but I had to keep trying just to capture his sweet little face.
I love doing this series not only because I get to sit down for an hour or so and chat up my friends, but I get to meet talented people like Bird and their lovely dogs, like Nigel. Bird is the creator, designer, and seamstress behind the amazing dog clothing line Nirdwares here in the Bay area. We were joking around that Hazel and Nooner would be perfect as roller skating derby girls, dressed up in satin with numbers and little derby hats and after looking at the Nirdwares website Bird could whip that costume up in no time! I think my favorite is the Patchwork Hero Harness because it doesn't get any better than a costume with a cape...on a dog! Awesome! Thank you to both of them for letting me take pictures and interrupting their coffee time which as we all know is much needed on a Sunday morning!
