Jackie | Greyhound

FFP had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful ten year old greyhound back in May of this year. Jackie lost a leg to cancer a couple years ago but that hasn’t held her back one bit. With the support and love of her faithful human Carrie she is healthy and cancer free! And she can still run like the wind…

Dove Lewis | Superheroes 2014

Today we get to meet some truly heroic Superheroes! These dogs are heroes because they donate blood that saves other dogs lives on a regular basis. The fine folks and crew over at Dove Lewis Emergency Animal Hospital, a non-profit  animal hospital here in Portland, held an event to honor and celebrate the life giving contributions that these animals made in 2014.

The event was held at the Lucky Labrador Brewing Company in SE Portland. Their back patio was a perfect location, especially considering that the rain was a coming down most of the afternoon. The beer was flowing, the food was plentiful and the dogs were socializing and having a blast. Now let’s meet some of these wonderful people and their Superhero dogs!

Dogs of Portland | Oil (pronounced Earl)

Day 15 of the Dogs of Portland blog finds us playing fetch with a pit bull mix that goes by the name of Earl, though it is spelled Oil. Southern folk it is said tend to pronounce Oil this way and the name fits it’s subject as Earl the pit bull has the demeanor of a good ole boy while being the slick color of oil.

He is a beautiful pit bull mix that loves to play fetch in the parkway that runs down the middle of N. Omaha Ave. in North Portland with his mom. He likes being able to simply run back to his house and lay down in the yard when he is plum tuckered out! And get a load of those muscles…WOAH!

Dogs of Portland | Alex

The end of week 3 of the Dogs of Portland blog took some effort to get completed today. I was out and about strolling and hunting for new dogs to meet and it took me a full hour before I even spotted a dog. This is very unprecedented for me, usually anytime I walk out the door it seems that there is a dog there, and one over there, and another one over in that yard. Luckily the guy I ran into was a very gregarious and very gorgeous Wheaten Terrier named Alex.

Two portraits of Alex the Wheaten Terrier. One is B&W and he is laying in the grass and mostly blends in. The other is color and he is turned and facing the camera

Dogs of Portland | Biggs

Today is laundry day and I have recently realized what a total rip off my apartment complexes laundry facilities are. I am spending on average $13 a week to do laundry for two people. In my opinion that is just too darn much. As a result I have been carting my laundry down to Alpine 24 Hour laundromat on Lombard St. at Vancouver. I get all my laundry done for under $10 plus it gets done much faster because it is all being washed and dried at the same time. It really is mostly enjoyable.

However, since I have begun a new vigorous workout schedule these days I find combining a 50 minute Jillian Michael’s workout followed up by two hours of washing, drying and folding laundry led me to feel a bit lethargic this afternoon. What does all this mean?

Biggs is my neighbor and a right proper model too! He posed so well for the camera and had no problem looking right into the lens. He was a real natural.

Dogs of Portland | Tabor

Another sunny Portland day is upon us so I grabbed my camera bag and out the door I went. Destination was about a mile from my front door, Peninsula Park on Ainsworth St. at Albina. If you are unaware I suggest you go check it out because their rose gardens are to die for. Of course they are just sprouting their leaves today but soon the entire front area of the park will be in full bloom and it is quite the site to see.

Dogs of Portland | Scout

Spring has officially sprung in Portland as temps finally climb into the lovely 70’s. When the sun is shining in Portland it’s best to get out and make the most of it so that is just what I did today. With my overdue library book stuffed into my camera bag off I went to stroll North Portland looking for dogs.

Scout sits patiently on his porch in a nice little spot of shade as he poses for this photograph. He is an adorable blond beagle who has recently gained senior status.

PAW Team | April Vet Clinic

Today we will be showcasing a local non-profit. PAW (Portland Animal Welfare) Team provides free vet clinics for homeless and very poor individuals and their Fur Family members. It is a cause that is near and dear to me, so come on in and say hello to some very adorable fur kids!

Let’s hear right from the horses mouth what PAW Team is all about! “The Portland Animal Welfare Team is a unique non-profit that helps both people and pets – we are a unique bridge between human welfare services and animal welfare services. By providing preventative veterinary care, exams, parasite control, and vital medications for the pets of people who are homeless or living in dire poverty, we help keep people and pets together. By providing pet supplies and prescription foods we enable the homeless and very poor to allocate their own limited resources toward their basic living expenses. We help prevent unwanted litters by connecting our clients to spay/neuter services. We help families get off the streets and into housing by providing vaccinations and licensing.”

Here are some of the beautiful people and pets that got some much needed attention yesterday.
