A little spoiler alert here...
The Predators are doing another "Preds with Dogs" calendar this year as part of their partnership with the local community and the Nashville Humane Society. As the proud owners of a few rescued pups, my wife and I were invited down to the arena so our dogs could take part in the photo shoot with the players. Not all the players are settled in the area or have dogs of their own, so we were there to fill in with a few select players.
Here's the breakdown:
Our rescued mutt, Murphy, posed with Jack Hillen
Our rescued bloodhound, Hubert, posed with Craig Smith
And last but not least, our rescued weimaraner, Waylon, posed with Zack Stortini
It was a great experience. We also got to hang around and see them shoot the videos they use for the player introductions and other candid shots. Anyway, just wanted to share my story and my excitement for the upcoming season!
If we get any photos before the calendar is realeased, we'll be sure to post them for your viewing pleasure.
