When the Oregon Humane Society asked if I'd like to photograph their annual Doggie Dash, I didn't hesitate for a second. Yes, I photograph people. And in my humble, non-scientific opinion, dogs don't fall far from that tree. With 4,000 "dashers", they raised over $273,000. That's enough money "to vaccinate all 10,000 pets OHS adopted last year, to feed every animal in the shelter for a year, to buy medical supplies for 1,250 spay/neuter surgeries, AND to keep two OHS animal cruelty investigators in the field for a full year!"
And to celebrate their success, I cracked a few ribs that evening during a soccer game in a most fantastic run-in with my own goalie. A fine day indeed.
