Pet Prizes Please at
#SuperDogPics Twitter Party

Live Caricature by Missy Johnson
was a Big Hit at #SuperDogPics
What a day! According to our stats, there were nearly 1500 tweets that shared the #SuperDogPics hashtag. Dogtipper and I thoroughly enjoyed sharing the photo tips of Brett Chisholm, of Life+Dog, and the artistry of Missy Johnson, from Dogs for the PAWS. These two guests were a class act and our partiers enjoyed them thoroughly.

Photo questions were flying high and Brett had all the answers, backed up by Paris, who is no camera novice herself. 

Missy Johnson provided exciting entertainment by drawing a Live Caricature of one participant's dog, and posting images as she went. This was a popular feature of the party and two of our participants won an 11 x 17 framed caricature as a result of her participation. What a grand event!

Prize providers, in addition to one "take a bow" prize from our Super Dog Sunday Charity Sponsors, included Sugar Chic Couture, Arenus Botanicals, Life+Dog magazine, Etsy shop Gypsy Eyes Clothing, Terra Paws, sponsors Dogtipper and All Things Dog Bog, and guest artist Dogs for the PAWS and Art and Dog Design.

Would you like to see some of the prizes we gave away? Winners got packages of multiple prizes. Here are just a few of the items we handed out today:
