One Hundred and One Dogs

April 6, 2018

This is the latest photograph, Steve and Bella, Chinatown



Last summer I started photographing One Hundred and One Dogs and their a caregivers with two objectives: 

  • alter the negative image decision-makers in this City have of the folks who live here in Old Town Chinatown by photographing them with their dogs and

  • begin the process of there being a dog ballpark here in our neighborhood sometime before 2020. 

In this the Year of the Dog and being that most of the dogs I am photographing live in Chinatown, it seems like the timing is right and the need, obvious.  Think of it as a community center with a place for dogs to play. 


Visit to see the other 58 dogs and the folks who call Chinatown home. 


P.S. We could use a small foot print pet store in the neighborhood as well, maybe the first of a series of neighborhood serving businesses for our community?
