Shannon Colthorpe has created a calendar featuring dogs owned by the customers of Videos ’n’ More in Comox, where she works.

“We have a sign on the front door that says ‘friendly dogs welcome,’ so it’s a daily occurrence that we hand out biscuits and affection,” says Colthorpe. “Over two weeks I ended up photographing 30 dogs and one rabbit, and ended up having to make a 16-month calendar just to fit everyone in!”

The rabbit is featured in April, to cover April Fool’s Day and Easter.

Colthorpe is giving the local SPCA a portion of the purchase price, and of course, a calendar.
