Calling all Georgian bay Dog Owners!

Calling all Georgian Bay Dog Owners:

Midland Public Library introduces “Dogs of Georgian Bay” – a photo book of the furry canine citizens of Georgian Bay. This is a fundraising project being created by the library, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the Midland Public Library to help us expand our services as your central community learning & leisure hub.

We are currently recruiting dogs to be featured in this book. If you’d like to have your dog featured in this book we will schedule a time for a professional photo shoot of your dog. We have several dates (listed below) and locations where our professional photographer(s) will be available to capture your dog’s canine charm.

As a participant of this project, we ask that you pre-purchase at least one copy of “Dogs of Georgian Bay” for a cost of $35. You will also be given a high resolution file of your dog’s portrait, with full printing rights.  You may, of course, pre-order as many copies as you like for friends, family, and other other members of your dog’s fan club 0 they will make great Christmas gifts for any dog lover!

Additionally, for $5 more, you can purchase a Christmas card file featuring your dog’s portrait. For an extra $10, you can have one family photo taken with your dog at their end of their session. A high resolution file will be delivered to you. Payments are to be made at the time of the session.

We will also send you a questionnaire about your pet, so that we can feature fun facts about your furry friend with their portrait in our photo book.

Copies of “Dogs of Georgian Bay” will be available for pick-up and purchase by the general public in November, 2017.

If you have any questions, or you’d like to participate, please contact us as
