Attention all teeny tiny dog lovers

Teeny Tiny Dogs and their Stories - Second Edition Now Available

UPDATE: After an amazing response, the Collector's Edition sold out at the book launch on Saturday 7th December. I have now released the Second Edition, so if you missed out, you can purchase online!

Inspired by the amazing work done by teeny tiny rescue group “Paws for Thought” Rescue" and by our trio of little rescued lap-dogs, the #3DogKateers, I am so excited to tell you that my very first book "Teeny Tiny Dogs and their Stories" is now available!

This has been a mammoth project for me in 2019 which consisted of 6 months of photographing 44 teeny tiny dogs whose human Mum registered them for the book. There are also some PFT VIPs who will also be featured in the book, along with my munchkins.

This is the perfect gift for yourself or your teeny-tiny-dog-loving friends or family members!

I received my copy of Teeny Tiny Dogs today Congratulations on a truly beautiful book - you must be so proud I can only imagine how much time and energy it would have taken to get it to print but you’ve done an outstanding job. Looking forward to sitting down and reading all the stories in detail xx


I just had to tell you, I read your beautiful book yesterday from front to back. Before I even got it out of the packaging, I was blown away by how perfectly it was packed!

Your stories brought quite a few tears to my eyes, especially those of Grace, Fred, Billy and Lei Lei. It was such a pleasure meeting you on Saturday. You are such a lovely person!

My book arrived today and I just wanted to congratulate you and thank you for putting together such a beautiful book. Your photos are amazing and the stories so heartwarming. The fact that it supports the amazing Paws for Thought rescue is an added bonus. Once again thank you so much and I wish yourself and yours a very Merry Christmas and all the best for the new year.

My fabulous, fabulous book has arrived Jo and I love it. The photography is awesome and I know how much time and care you take to make sure each and every dog’s character shows through. Thank you so much. Luv liks and wags from Rubyrose and Lulubelle.

Thank you so much for my Teeny Tiny Dogs book, I just got it and it’s even more beautiful than I thought it would be, made me cry when I opened up to a random page, Harley was beautifully sitting there.


Great news on the sellout! I reckon your book is amazing and I’m totally biased because my boy is part of it but it’s such a great cause too. And yay for PFT as well - all the beautiful dogs and their stories shared for years to come - was so lovely to read about some of my faves like Peter Pepperoni

Nat (Dante's Mum)

It’s a lovely book, Jo. My granddaughters were entranced when I showed them last night. So nice to meet you yesterday. The photo you took of my Super Ted in the PFT calendar is awesome. He looks very handsome indeed. Xx


Such a beautiful book, you did an amazing job Jo, you should be very proud and deserve every accolade you receive, apart from being an amazing photographer you are a beautiful soul as well. Bless xox????

Trisha (Miss Lizzie's Mum)

Got my book. It’s stunning. Showed my friend and Fellow PFT stalker Nadene. She said you have taken such beautiful photos.


Hi I got my beautiful book the other night Jo it is truly beautiful, I was in tears, I will treasure this, you have captured each Tiny Tiny so well. Thank you so very much. You are gifted. ?



The book launch was held on Saturday 7 December 2019 at the Sutherland Shire Council Animal Shelter Open Day. This was the perfect opportunity to hold the book launch as it came at the end of my time volunteering with the shelter, so a chance to celebrate my three years with such a wonderful team. I was also in good company with "Paws for Thought" Rescue on my left and Penny Marathon on my right. We all had an amazing day and the book sold out! The biggest highlight of the day was the presence of the book's cover star Pod!
