Peeps and Paws Out for a Great Cause!

Last week I headed out to The Lot on Washington for the "Who's Your Doggy?" fundraiser, benefiting the Texas Hearing and Service Dogs! If you aren't familiar with the organization, let me fill you in... THSD has been around for 22 years, rescuing and training dogs as working partners for Texans living with deafness and mobility challenges-- ALL FREE OF CHARGE.

Their brochure has great snippets like "saving dogs, changing lives" and "technology you can hug"-- it's so inspiring to look through and see how this organization has taken two difficult situations and worked to create a loving symbiotic relationship between dogs and humans in need. My hat's off to Sheri Soltes, THSD's founder and president.

Here are some shots from the event! I shot some doggie portraits for our four-legged guests, but will blog separately with those images.

Thanks to Tam'ra, Jayme, Vivian, and the rest of the Houston Charity Chicks for organizing this wildly successful event! Attendees left with (what else?) doggie bags full of goodies from Heights Urban Dog Natural Pet Market, Barker Street Gourmet Dog bakery and Boutique, and Deogi Dog Daycare, Spa, and Resort. Tennis balls and frisbees were donated by Petsmart, and raffle prizes were donated by Jess & Co. Canine Couture!

Brandi Garcia from 97.9 The Box came out to show her support as well. Thanks Brandi!
