Phodographer Ray Makowski at the Launch Party for Dog Meets World, Aug. 2009

While off gallivanting around the world with the little stuffed likeness of my real dog Jazz, aka Foto, it’s imperative to have reliable dogsitter back at home. Matt Blocker is a dogsitter extraordinaire! They have formed a true bond and Matt volunteered to take care of the star dog, the canine inspiration for the Dog Meets World project, at the debut Launch party on August 24th. There have been a myriad of supporters of DMW, but Matt’s consistent care of Foto has been indispensable.
