An interested party...

Often we are asked whether we have dogs and that is why we are doing dog parc gallery as a project. The answer is no; although we have both had the fortune of canine companionship in the past, at the present moment two cats live with us (and are very much adored). A dog - or more than one - will be in our shared future, of that we are certain. But our inspiration to create dog parc gallery was, simply, Parc Gallery itself and its interspecies users. You collectively make for compelling motivation!

Many thanks to the work of our photographers: Thomas Strickland, Shauna Janssen and Emily Kirkman, for doing such a great job of showing the beauty, spirit and personality of these wonderful dogs.

The park's users have been active offsite, too: a wonderful video of Billy the Whippet has been posted to Youtube, and provides an excellent perspective of the park from a canine position:
