Some of the dogs that Jason Checkla has photographed. See Mason's story MNDOG; Dog-lovers have been ordering portrait photos of their pooches with hilarious results. Wedding photographer Jason Checkla was inspired to picture dogs after getting one of his own. He said owners and pets have a "blast" as he dresses them in fancy dress and strike a pose. Mr Checkla has made more than £4,700 by snapping nearly 100 canines in mexican sombrero hats and bow-ties in the space of four hours. He now prefers shooting dogs to people and uses squeaky toys and rolls on the floor to bring out their personalities.
