A crew from the Norm Thompson clothing company has been on Orcas all week shooting images for its spring collection.

Pawkis' owner Deb Hanson called Islands' Sounder editor Colleen Smith Armstrong about the team needing a dog to model. Hanson thought Armstrong's Brittany Spaniel mix, Loretta, would be perfect.

And she was right.

Loretta, who is a rescue, was "one of the best dogs" the team has ever had. She quietly posed for all her photos and perked up for the camera with the help of an iphone app that made cat sounds.

Loretta will be signing pawtographs in Eastsound over the weekend.
