Gracie

Posted by
Trina (Pennsylvania, United States) on 7 May 2012 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Over the weekend, I photographed the Bark for Life, a fundraising event for The American Cancer Society. About 40 dogs turned out to raise money and awareness of cancer in dogs as well as for the role dogs play in helping those who are fighting this horrible disease. Gracie and her family were just one of the participants.


In my life, it seems not a day goes by that I don't spend it with a dog. Whether it's taking my pup Izzy for a walk, participating in a dog/pet related event, or working as a pet sitter, I can't imagine not having these 4 legged friends in my life. For this reason, the fact that this year's Bark for Life fell on Aminus3's Life is happening challenge (where bloggers were asked to take a photo on May 5 that inspires or reflects their life), was fitting for me. Gracie is only a puppy at just 8 months old. The Bark for Life walk was a great experience for her and a wonderful way for her family to spend the day together.
