Self Improvement | Working on My Canine-Snappin’ Skills

dog-with-camera-wallpaper.jpg

I’ve never been one to share much of my own photography on Barkarama, mainly due to the fact that I’m not very good or confident with a camera. I envy the skills of fashion and lifestyle bloggers, who get snap happy to create beautiful/stylish/inspiring content, and with such a handsome boy as Basil, my skill shortage has been frustrating the hell out of me. I was fortunate enough to receive a hand-me-down SLR from my dad but as someone who prefers to learn by doing, I couldn’t be faffed with the manual and I’ve been stuck in ‘Auto’ mode ever since.

Shopping for | 7 Easter Goodies for Your Dog 

Easter_Dog_Gift.jpg

With a plentiful supply of chocolate eggs, buttered hot cross buns and tender lamb, Easter is our kind of foodie holiday. However, much of the fruits of Easter – chocolate especially, are toxic to dogs and at worse can result in fatality. You can easily pick up Easter eggs designed for dogs but with identical packaging to the human versions, we think they only serve to confuse our hair-brained hounds. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up seven tasty buys to send your dog hopping mad this Easter.
