DogCity USA is both a celebration of canine companionship as well as a vision of a dog-friendly future for Grand Rapids, Mich. As Grand Rapids forges ahead in its renaissance, welcoming art, food, entrepreneurship and a spirit of excitement and possibility to its streets, there also is space for an open-minded embrace of our four-legged friends. Some of the most beloved cities in the US welcome dogs warmly into daily life through dog-friendly dining, off-leash dog parks, bring-your-dog-to-work programs and more. Just as Grand Rapids earned the title of 'BeerCity USA' for its amazing craft beers and breweries, I believe we will someday be celebrated for our animal stewardship and acceptance. DogCity USA is a series of photographs of our canine companions in juxtaposition with well-known Grand Rapids landmarks. It is a fun, colorful and smile-evoking vision of a dog-friendly city that is intended to get both animal-lovers and GR-lovers talking about possibilities for the future!
