See the latest business news from South Austin, including the arrival of a new dog photography studio, a rye and bourbon whiskey distillery, and a french fry food truck.

Dog Days Photography, a dog photo studio serving all of Austin, opened in March. Owner Bryn Bonino focuses on dog wall art and offers her services for both homes and businesses. On July 10 from 1-5 p.m., Dog Days Photography will be offering photos at MudPuppies' North Austin location. For $150, customers will get $100 credit toward wall art with the photo service, and $50 will be donated to Austin Dog Rescue. Bonino is also running a calendar contest from July 12-Aug. 23. Individuals can submit photos of their dog online, and 13 dogs will be chosen to be professionally photographed and featured in Dog Days Photography's 2022 calendar. The contest will benefit Hound Rescue, which places abandoned hounds in Texas homes.

Fierce Whiskers Distillery is preparing to open in late summer at 5333 Fleming Court, Austin. The name of the rye and bourbon whiskey distillery owned by native Texans Tim Penney and Tri Vo comes from a quote former President Rutherford B. Hayes wrote in his journal in 1849 on a visit to Texas, calling Austin a place with "fierce whiskers, gaming, and drinking very abounding in all quarters."

Fiery Sage Healing has moved its practice from 2720 Bee Caves Road, Austin, to 2500 W. William Cannon Drive, Austin, in the Stonegate Two office park. Jennifer Finegold practices acupuncture and hypnotherapy, specializing in treating disorders such as anxiety and depression. 512-815-3555.

Mama Fried, a new french fry trailer from the team behind Leroy and Lewis, will open July 15 at the Armadillo Den, 10106 Menchaca Road, Austin. The menu features fries served with dips such as beet barbecue or queso. Customers can also order the fries topped with options such as chili and cheese or the Whole Hog Fries with whole hog, pork hash, mustard barbecue sauce and coleslaw. The concept comes from longtime Leroy and Lewis employee Clayton Cook and is inspired by Texas' outlaw country legends; Merle Haggard recorded the album "Mama Tried" in 1968. 512-962-7805.
