Hello, My name is Pan. I’m an IT geek from 9-5 and a dog nerd at all others times. A few years ago, on weekends, I started visiting dog parks. Pretending to read a book, I would wait for dogs to approach me so that I could play with them. Since then, this was my weekly adventure.

MY HAPPINESS.

LOOKING FOR DOGS!
LOOKING FOR DOGS!

I used to be a part-time wedding photographer. While my photos were good, I still didn't feel fulfilled. I didn't like asking people to “smile". A smile should be natural rather than forced, especially on a wedding day. This was not my idea of true happiness, so I stopped.

These days, I’m proud to be a Pawtographer - a story teller sharing dog tales on Instagram @ThePawsome.co. My journey has begun.

Since founding The Pawsome in 2016, I have photographed more than 300 dogs, and have not had to ask a single one to “smile”. Dogs always give me a big smile - a genuine smile.

Through my lenses and perspective, I can sense a dog’s true mood and personalities. The more photos I take and the more stories I hear, the more I am convinced that what I’ve captured is precious and truly worthy sharing with the world. That is what inspired me to create this coffee table book project, 'LIFE IS PAWSOME'.

 

'LIFE IS PAWSOME' is a hardcover coffee table book with a collection of my best works of capturing pictures and stories belonging to more than 300 dogs I've met from parks and streets across Melbourne, Australia. I would love for my book to make you say “AWWW…. this is so CUTE” and break into a broad smile. I have curated photographs of my doggy friends and told their stories to evoke warmth and affection. I want every single page in this book to bring you instant happiness and joy.

'LIFE IS PAWSOME' will be published as a 23cm x 18cm hardcover art coffee table book featuring over 200 pages of happiness, 150+ dog stories and over 60 dog breeds.

During my weekend Pawtographer journey, to my surprise, I have encountered so many happy rescued dogs. Their new family enrich their life. And more importantly, in every single case, they give back so much love. They've given back hundredfold. I LOVE hearing rescued dog stories.

"Teddy is like a big brother to our girl. We adopted him eight weeks ago and he has been re-homed three times - this is definitely the last time! He has found his forever home as long as he doesn't eat our thongs!" Teddy, 18-month-old mix terrier.

It is a fact that most animal shelters operate relying on donations from the community. Often, the financial resources the shelters have do not even come close to the amount of need they face. So, I’d like to use this campaign to raise awareness and funds for the rescue shelters and the dogs they save.

I pledge that at least 50% profit from the sales of the book will go to donation for dog shelters.

We'll donate profit to SoiDog and Starting Over Dog Rescue group

I hope that we can all come together to support more rescued dogs to find their forever home!

 

We have 100% Awwwness guarantee on every book. However, if you receive this book, read all pages and you don’t say the magic word, "AWWW... this is so CUTE", even once. Meaning, if this book doesn't serve its purpose to give you instant happiness, you will be fully refunded.

This is a risk-free project.

My dream is to get this book to all dog lovers on this planet. To enjoy this book. To make you feel happy to be a dog lover. The book will make you smile and give you instant happiness while reading any pages. To me, this is so much more than a photo book. It is a labour of my love for dogs. Most importantly, your support of this project will help increase the chances of homeless dogs to find their forever homes.

DOG LOVERS please support the project and most importantly share it with other dog lovers and the world.  

To acknowledge your generous support of this project, I will offer you, the supporter, the opportunity to include your name in the ‘thank you’ section called ‘YOU ARE PAWSOME!’ of my book.

Because “You Are Pawsome”

Risks and challenges

I have been working tirelessly on this project for over 6 months now: compiling the manuscript of the book in readiness for sending it to a printer for publication. I have found a printer willing to print my book, but as with anything, there may be printing related issues along the way which are beyond my control.
As noted in my project outline, my book comes with a 100% Awwwness guarantee. That is, if you receive this book, read its pages and you do not exclaim the magic words, "AWWW... this is so CUTE!", even once, then the purchase price of the book will be fully refunded to you.
I will be as open and as transparent as possible when it comes to this campaign. I will provide you, my valued community of dog lovers, with regular updates on the progress of this project.
