I’ve written a new book called When Age Has No Leash - Lessons learned from Senior Dogs.
This project celebrates the love of senior dogs. It’s a collection of professional portraits featuring 75 beautiful, vibrant, active, mature dogs.
When Age Has No Leash highlights the relationships between dogs and the people who love them – regardless of age. These are dogs whose lives have been changed by people. Equally, these are stories of people whose lives have been changed by the dogs they cherish.
In nearly every portrait essay, the featured animal companions were adopted from less than fortunate circumstances. Some were rescued as puppies. Others were adopted as senior dogs. All have thrived with wonderful stories to be told.
The 164 pages of this 8.5" x 11" full-color book include testimonials from people who have been touched by their experiences with senior dogs. Their words are humorous, sentimental, meaningful and sometimes just plain silly. The images are energetic and touching.
Photographing these exceptional dogs has been an incredible experience that I hope to share - with your help and pledge.
Much can be learned through the eyes of senior dogs. The message of this book is:
Dogs don’t think about age! They always think they’re puppies!
That’s what this project is all about … spreading the message that dogs are young at heart. In dog minds and hearts, age is rarely a barrier. It's a lesson about age that we humans can learn from.
This is where I need your help!
With your support of this Kickstarter project, my book will unleash an endless supply of positive, funny, impressive, sentimental and life-changing stories that I hope will inspire others to adopt, embrace and learn from senior dogs.
This project can only happen with your pledge.
I hope you will help me deliver this message through my photography and the words of more than 60 Alaska families who love their senior dogs.
Your pledge will help make this book become a reality before December 2014. It will make a difference in the lives of others much the same as my first book It's Important to Paws.
It’s Important to Paws became a reality through a successful Kickstarter campaign one year ago.
When Age Has No Leash is also a great project. It will make a difference. You have my promise.
Please support this project with your pledge.
Risks and challenges
This book can only happen if it reaches or exceeds its goal of $16,000. This will fund a portion of the actual printing, shipping and distribution costs associated with creating a book of this quality and integrity.
If our goal is exceeded, additional proceeds raised will assist with the many other expenses that helped make this book possible - along with more good things that we're known for creating with your support.
The anticipated delivery date, if funded, is November/December 2014 assuming the book arrives in time and is approved for delivery through U.S. Customs.
I'm confident we can meet these timeframes and will do everything in my power to make it happen - the same as we did with our first successful Kickstarter project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
