You may recognize these pups from a siting on the downtown mall, or a photograph somewhere around town. Photographer Kay Taylor is hosting her inaugural gallery exhibit this Saturday at Atelier ONE @ La Linea Bella, down the street from Cville Coffee on Allied Street.

We had the chance to sit and chat with Kay to find out some more about herself and her 5 famous boys!

How long have you been in Cville?


When did your passion for photography, specifically dog photography start?

Ruffly 10 years ago.

When did the sheridan avenue boys form?

It all started a little over 11 years ago. I met a little dachshund named Rudy that I fell in love with and decided that I had to have a wiener dog…4 months later…another wiener dog…and a looooooong story short legs later…The Sheridan Avenue Boys were born.

Tell us a bit about the members of the pack, how would you describe their personalities?

There’s 5 in the pack…

  • Jack– oldest and wisest
  • Jetson – mischievous
  • Jordan– super sweet with a touch of crazy, just like me
  • Lincoln– stoic, celebrity
  • Lego– wired 24/7

They each have their own personality, but yet they are similar in many ways.
