“Not the least hard thing to bear when they go from us, these quiet friends, is that they carry away with them so many years of our own lives.” John Galsworthy 

The price we pay for loving dogs is that we will have to say goodbye someday – and always too soon. We each know this all too well. In fact, it’s been said that this may be the only real flaw of dogs – the painful fact that their lives are so much shorter than ours. 

Today we all feel this familiar sadness because we’ve learned that Chopper – Fences for Fido’s very first unchained dog – died this week due to complications of cancer. With the passing of this stately, gentle old friend, we want to pause and remember what a mark Chopper left on our world. He was once a lonely, scruffy backyard dog. But everything changed, practically overnight, when a group of Portland friends met Chopper and realized they could do something to help. What they did changed Chopper’s life and his family’s life, and then that change rippled across the community and just kept going. Chopper galvanized a mission and a passion that continues to grow today. 

New Dog Tethering Law in Effect January, 1, 2014

The new law does the following:

Limits tethering to:

  1. Ten hours (in a 24 hour period) when dog is tethered to a stationary object;
  2. Fifteen hours (in a 24 hour period) when dog is tethered to a running line, “zip line”, trolley, or pulley system;

In the summer of 2012, our Fido community made something truly remarkable happen: Through just one whirlwind day of online voting, you helped us win a Toyota Tundra pickup through Toyota's 100 Cars For Good campaign! We knew that having a truck that belonged exclusively to Fences For Fido would make a huge difference in our work, and over these past several months it surely has.
