Join me in supporting Doggie Dash, a fundraiser for Oregon Humane Society!

I am doing this to honor all the pets in my life, both my own, and those that I am an uncle to. Of special note is Buppus who grew up in St. John’s and is retired to Big Sky Country. On April 5th, we lost Buppus. I like to believe his doggie spirit is hanging out with our dear friend Jamshed having forever treats and all kinds of adventures.

I also dedicate this to Sgt. Pepper who makes the rounds with me, weekly, of green spaces in the Portland and Vancouver areas.

This year I donated my car Maxx to Oregon Humane Society and now I want to raise money to help this fine organization.

You know how much I love animals. I signed up for Doggie Dash because I believe in creating a more humane society and the pets in our community need help!

This past year so much has changed, yet our love of pets is constant. Even with everything that has happened, OHS is still committed to their mission and helping pets and people in need.

Did you know that OHS never puts time limits on how long pets remain at their shelter? What really touches my heart is when a pet arrives at OHS who may be shy or frightened, OHS has a special program to help teach them to trust people and that love is good.

OHS realized early during the pandemic that pet owners needed help and OHS has stepped up to support pet owners around the state. Close to 100,000 pounds of pet food was delivered to shelters and food pantries around the state, and given directly to owners at free pet food banks at OHS.

I hope your pets were a comfort to you through this very challenging past year.

And I'm hoping you'll join me in helping pets from all walks of life. Please donate now!

Thank you so much!

Dropped off cash and checks ... notice they have a bin for treats, toys and blankets “fur” pets... s, something to keep in mind. #doggiedash #bemorehumane

Decided the change in the car could be a change agent. So $6 no longer rattling on the floorboards of the Honda Element for Doggie Dash!

Such a regal dog on the stoop of his house

I got a bath and I’m a little prince


This is Archie. He lives with his moms and kid in the Tri-Cities.

This is Louie. He lives with his mom Shelly in Albuquerque, but he was once a Northwest dog

Buppus enjoying the Montana life

One of my fave shots of Sgt. Pepper, very popular at local Starbucks drive thrus, esp. at Piedmont where he is a Piedmont Pup

This is Miles Otis and he runs really fast with Otis in Vancouver

This is Quinn. He lives with his mom, Jabbara in Vancouver and loves romping around Cully Park with his brother Miles Otis in Vancouver

This is Holly, she was a beautiful pup who I help raise from birth during my time living off Yamhill

This is Junebug in Lahaina, Maui. She loves tennis balls and rides in the car and yeah ... beaches.

This was my longtime companion, Khia. She was with me 12 years

Awwwwwe gratuitous adorableness. Sgt. Pepper

This is Izzy. I met her in Tigard before she went to live with Buppus in St. John’s and then Helena. So glad she is there with Buppus.

This is Sgt. Pepper. He lives in Arbor Lodge with his dads and spends many an hour with me. His favorite treat is a watermelon flavored one

Thinking about my little friend, Buppus, who is near the end. The Doggie Dash is the perfect way to honor him.
