In July 2010, I launched as an online social media campaign via Facebook and Twitter with an online search and doggie casting call. All of the dogs included in this book were submitted by their owners on the Project DOG website (http://www.projectdog.net) and each dog featured in the book was hand-picked based on the photo and story submitted.
There were more than 800 submissions received in the San Francisco Bay Area alone (more than 3,000 nationwide), and in some cases there were so many submissions for the same breed, that an online vote via Facebook was held to determine which dog would be featured in the book.
For many of the rare breeds, I contacted the AKC's national breed club officers, many of which were extremely helpful and supportive!Last updated:
I left my full time job on June 3rd, and since June 4th I have photographed more than 200 dogs. I am still photographing as many dogs as humanely possible before my print deadline for the sake of the richness and quality of my book. I will do whatever it takes to make this dream a reality.Last updated:
I have received alot of feedback about using these two words together. For the sake of this project, please understand that these terms are used loosely.
The dog on the left side of the page was purchased as a pet or for show from a breeder, hence a "purebred" dog. The dog on the right side of the page has been adopted via a rescue organization, shelter, or by other means. In many cases, the "rescue" dog depicted is also purebred.
One of the goals of this book is to help dispel the myth that all "rescued" dogs are mixed breed/mutts. 20-30% of all dogs that enter shelters and rescues are purebred, mainly due to owner surrender. I believe it is necessary for people to gain a new perspective on what it means to be "rescued", and it is also important to raise awareness about breed-specific rescue. There is a rescue organization for almost every dog breed; this is a new fact for many people.Last updated:
All photo sessions held to complete this book were 100% complimentary in nature; absolutely no fees were charged for inclusion. The dogs featured in this book were selected based upon merit and quality of content received in original submission form. More than 800 people in the SF Bay Area submitted their dogs via the website and Facebook for consideration.
I have photographed more than 200 dogs in various iconic San Francisco locations since June 4th (6-11 dogs/day) and will continue to do so until we go to print!Last updated:
We are closer to the print deadline than planned, and can only afford to fundraise for 25 days versus 30, in order to meet a holiday drop date. We'd love to have these books in for holiday, wouldn't you love to give this book to your favorite doggie loving friend or family member?
If we don't reach our goal in 20 days, then we don't get any money, and it will be interesting to see when/how this book will see the light of day. :-( Please, if you support Project DOG, consider donating and help turn this dream into a reality!!Last updated:
