Dogs

Did you hear the news this past week? An Oregon Great Dane ate 43 and a half socks, which fortunately were able to be surgically removed by a Portland-area veterinary hospital. In honor of this Oregon dog, today we're sharing images of a few more of man's best friends.

Andrew Eberly's dog, a Blue Heeler named Little, gets a bit impatient and tries to hurry things up, while the silly humans chat. Little is a year and a half, and high energy - he prefers running along with Andrew's bike to leisurely park walks. (at Peninsula Park in North Portland)  Photo by Keri Friedman

Signs

Today we're sharing some interesting signs that photographers found as they captured images for Project Dayshoot. Old or new, they add character to their communities.

It's hard to miss the creative signage on the Nite Hawk Cafe & Lounge on the corner of Interstate Ave & Rosa Parks Way in the Arbor Lodge neighborhood of North Portland. The Nite Hawk, in various incarnations, has existed since 1931. Bill and Elaine Mildenberger bought it in the early 80s and over the years, along with their son Bill, have remodeled and renovated it to become a neighborhood favorite for tasty food & good local company.
