CAITLIN McColl's scruffy ragamuffin Lyra not only gave her unconditional love. The pointer cross helped her achieve financial security through the launch of a successful business, Ragamuffin Pet Photography.  "I was looking to do something I could feel passionate about, and Lyra just inspired me," the RMIT graduate said. The business idea won Ragamuffin third prize in RMIT's 2011 business plan competition and, less than a year since its launch, the boutique business is an unqualified success. "It's grown quickly - much quicker that I expected," Ms McColl said. "A lot of people have a very special bond with their pets and they want to document that with high quality, artistic photographs. Many didn't know this was even an option, but word is spreading fast..."
