My first assignment was cancelled and then it went to the dogs

Steve Russell - Staff Photographer

My day started off with my first assignment being cancelled as soon as I walked through the door. The subject thought the shoot was on Monday and was unavailable.

As I left that assignment my phone buzzed with my next assignment. 

Cover the Dog Whisperer, Cesar Millan at the Canadian Tire on Lake Shore Blvd and Leslie Street.

Cesar Millan holds  Justin the Chiuaua as hundreds of dogs, with their owners on leashes came to see the Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan, at Canadian Tire at Leslie and Lake Shore for the launch of his line of dog accessories in  Toronto.

None of these dogs would own up to it, but a Canadian Tire flyer came in handy when one had an accident.

The sad, and badly managed thing was that Lena Cote seemed to have been the only child in line yet was told that she would miss out on seeing Cesar, as he could not see everyone. So you did not get a picture of the girl crying with disapointment of seeing her idol.

omg, please! Monika!
The little girl, actually did get to see her idol, and had her pic taken with him. my god.
