Dogs of Fishtown Calendar

Forums:

Alright, folks. So how are we gonna do this? We have many people in this neighborhood far more creative than I - whether photographers or printers.

We sort of derailed the Wildey Street thread. So lets keep posts on topic here. Post pics of FT.us dogs in this thread. Maybe a FT.US dogs & owners calendar fundraiser? We could sell it at the River City Festival for 2013?

That's a great idea, Leo. How about the proceeds go to ACCT or any other organization that protects animals.

Crap, what about those of us wierdos who have Rhino Iguanas and Brazilian Black Tarantulas instead of dogs?

This is awesome!
One thing to keep in mind though is the photos posted here won't have a high enough resolution to be printed, and are too small to boot - everything will be super blurry/ pixelated.
Maybe start a flicker group and ask people who want to participate to upload the highest resolution photos they have? Your designer or the printer can take it from there.
I might be able to help for that depending on what you need.
Btw- Im very fond of dogs, but no dog here tho- just kitties!

Does anybody know about chipping, like where to get it done and how much it costs? We were going to get our dog chipped when he got neutered, but it never happened. If we lost him, I think I'd have either diarrhea or a stroke. He wears a collar 24/7 and isn't the run-away type, but still.
Thanks in advance.

Love is a Mattlefield.

sure you can get him chipped at PAWS http://www.phillypaws.org/
http://www.has.org/about_spay.php
http://girardvetphila.com/default.aspx
Those are the three least expensive places I know of - you have to register the chip ( don't pay for the re-upthe next year they keep your info unless you need to change it

This is such an excellent idea. Perhaps the Spirit can get involved and all proceeds go to any organization that saves the lives of our furry friends. I would buy one of these in a heartbeat.

I got our Ginger chipped at the pet clinic that comes to Coral Street Arts. It was very cheap around $35 a couple years ago; it does make you feel better knowing that if anything happened, you have a chance to get the back.

It's not something I talk about very often. Not many people know.

No takers on an ant calendar?

Camera, love that mug! Awesome idea and I'd love it to go to ACCT or PAWS.

thanks, Brooke! He's quite aware that he's awesome.
Will Bam Bam qualify for the calendar? He lives in East Kensington, not Fishtown, although he's often found crapping in the latter (which I, being a responsible dog owner, always pick up).

i think this is a great idea, i'd also love for it to go to acct.

If there was a dog contest of aerial maneuvers, or specifically goal-tending, I'd have to bet on my dog.

Anyone ever gone to the dog park and seen a dog bouncing over around and under other dogs then digging a one foot hole in under 5 seconds.... that was probably AnnBonnie. Does she count as a FT.us dog?

key2ursoul's picture

How do you post pictures on here? I have a perfect picture of Toby, the December dog :)

And I would love the proceeds to go to ACCT or, even better, the PSPCA!

ACCT is actually the shelter that's more in need, but either choice is good!

How can we make this happen? I know we have several very accomplished photographers on this site, but I don't want to make anyone work for free.

Has anyone here put together something like this before?
