    I was asked to document the journey of my K9 friend, Hero. He is the mascot for CoverYourK9.org (Police and Working K9s is the actual foundation). Link here > http://coveryourk9.org/aboutpawk9.html

    Randy Peterson generously (as usual) offered to donate $1 for each MegaDo’er in a photo with him – see his announcement here > http://milepoint.com/forums/threads/smd4-official-master-thread.37286/page-194 (post #1405)

    Bonnerbl took many pix of him at the ZRH reception where we awaited our Swiss flight home >
    http://milepoint.com/forums/threads/smd4-official-master-thread.37286/page-195 (posts #4864-#4870)

    If anyone else has shots of him (esp. at the United Food and Wine session with the Chefs), please add them to this thread.

    UPDATE : You can now get your very own 'Hero' with a donation to Police and Working K9s!!!
    Thank you very much :)

    The count is now at 96 MegaDoer's in a photo with Hero - of those that are posted (or linked to) in this thread. I know that someone took a photo of me with him, but I have yet to see it materialize.
    THANK YOU ALL AND AN EXTRA LARGE THANK YOU TO RANDY for helping out this worthy cause......:)

    Here’s a photo I took of you with the dog in the frame, but not really a posed one.
    Dawn & Dog.jpg

    However, going thru the vids I shot, which I thought I’d lost till a few moments ago, I have one of you talking about why you brought him along. Message me with your email address, and I’ll set it up for private viewing for you for your approval before it goes “wild”.

    For Those Of You in Pictures with the dog - Back at the lounge in LA before the flight to ZRH, I video’d a quick explanation of who Hero is and what charity he represents. I’ve let Dawn see that vid, and she’s okay with it. It was also part of my idea to put the photos of you with Hero as a montage at the end. But I don’t want to do that without your permission.

    So, if you’re okay with me putting the photo of you and Hero into the video, please let me know by responding in this thread, and by letting me know where I can find your photo. No need to clog up the works by posting it again. If you want me to use a higher-resolution image, the video will be high-def @ 720p or 1080p, then send me a Conversation and I’ll give you an address to send it to.

    Thanks.
