Introducing: Sidekicks

Last week, I asked for your participation in a project that my friend Melanie and I are working on. As of that post, we had a broad vision of what we wanted to accomplish, no name, and the only progress we’d made was that we’d made a secret Pinterest Pinboard. That’s essential, I’m told.

Today, I’m happy to say that we have a name, a photoshoot under our belts and several more in the works, a web domain, and an elevator pitch, albeit shaky at the moment, and also subject to change. Apparently elevator pitches are also essential.

So, my friends, I’m very happy to introduce Sidekicks, a project that aims to take some of the mystery out of the variety of forms that human-canine partnerships can take, by letting you have a good, long look at the beautiful people and dogs involved in them. We hope their photos and stories contribute at least a little bit to the movement toward empowering the largest minority in the country – people with disabilities.

Melanie and I are really energized by the amount of enthusiasm you and our friends and families have expressed, and we’re looking forward to sharing our process with you every step of the way. I’m including a couple of the photos we took last weekend, but there are lots more to come.

Do you recognize that pretty little doggy?

Melanie, Bright, and I stopped for some ice cream during out shoot in San Francisco last weekend.

Are you as excited as we are?

If you’re interested in participating, we’re scheduling photoshoots now. Click here to fill out a questionnaire, and we’ll get back to you when we’ve received it.

Thank you for your support, and stay tuned for more updates!
