A couple weeks ago, I donated a piece of art to Artists for Japan, which ended up raising over $92,000! And then last week, Joe and I (along with our little fundraiser, Nina) walked with a small group of other dog lovers at Alki Beach, trying to raise money for the dogs of Japan.
It was a gorgeous day, (miraculously) and it was so awesome to see how many people crossed the street to show their support or hand over some cash for the cause.
It made me love my city, and the awesome community of West Seattle, even more.
This walk was organized by our fantastic dog walker and trainer, Anthony Hardt of Left Coast Dogs. Anthony is part of Nina's family-- she ADORES him, and he loves her just as much.
We feel so lucky to have met him.
If you live in West Seattle, and are looking to train, board, or schedule walks for your dog, I cannot recommend Anthony highly enough.
