I have long admired Julie Clegg Photography. When I saw her Dog A Day for Canine Cancer project was finished, I jumped at the chance to share it. Julie is donating 10% of the proceeds of her net proceeds to the National Canine Cancer Foundation.
From Julie: After photographing pets for a few years, I noticed many people were commissioning me to photograph their dogs because they had been recently diagnosed, or were losing their battle with cancer. It saddens me to think of how few years we actually get with our pups, they shouldn’t have to spend any of those days battling such a horrible disease.
One out of every three dogs will get cancer. Fifty percent of those dogs will die from cancer. Some breeds get hit a lot harder with 75% dying from the disease.* I can’t do much to fix cancer, but I can help raise awareness and money to help fight canine cancer.
For one year, I made it a point to share with at least one person every day about canine cancer and photograph their dog. This book is a collection of photographs and a little story about each of the 366 dogs that I met during that time.
I met some amazing people and dogs all over the greater Puget Sound area. Some from seeing their gorgeous dog at the park or on their walk. Some were dogs that were being fostered and needed pictures for adoption. Some were from fundraisers we held for Canine Cancer. And all of my clients that year made it into the book.
Many of dogs in this book have lost their battle with Canine Cancer, and to them and their owners, a special thank you for allowing me to photograph a small part of your life. May your dog rest in peace.
