White Dog and Oso jumped into the car ealy this cold morning. We were heading to pick up Dragon, Sen-ge and their humans and were then heading to Santa Fe. It was an important day and these representatives of the White Dog Army had an important role to fulfill.

The NO H8 campaign was in Santa Fe to shoot photos for their last on-location event of the year. The NO H8 Campaign is a charitable organization whose mission is to promote marriage, gender and human equality through education, advocacy, social media, and visual protest. You may have seen their photos of celebrities and everyday folks on social network pages. Each features a cheek tattoo and duct tape across the mouth to signify "no hate." In the four years since its start, over 30,000 people have contributed their photos to the cause of equality and an end to hatred.

Today the White Dog Army added our voices as did 300 or so other New Mexicans. There was a great energy and the White Dogs received MUCH attention. In fact one beautiful elderly woman asked if she could "borrow" Oso for her photo as well. Our littlest guy agreed and they made a great pair.

Here are some photos of us at the photo shoot. We will not know which actual photo has been chosen for the campaign for 6-8 weeks but the photographer was very talented and we feel captured the WDA spirit.

NO H8...A concept the White Dog Army wholeheartedly endorses.
May your upcoming week be one of love.!
