Syndicated Cartoonist & Ann Arbor Local Dave Coverly & Fundraiser for Humane Society of Huron Valley Bountiful Bowls Program
BarkPost’s Dogs and Their People: Photos and Stories of Life with a Four-Legged Love
Please bring dry dog or cat food to this event to donate to the HSHV’s Bountiful Bowls Program to help families in financial difficulties be able to keep their pets instead of having to surrender them to the shelter. If you cannot come to the event you can still donate food at the store through the month of October.
The BarkBox doodles are everywhere- on the box, in our newsletter, and on our Facebook page. And while we affectionately call these pup drawings “doodles,” the artist behind them is a full-blown cartoonist.
They’re by Dave Coverly, one of the top cartoonists in the country. (Seriously.) His “Speed Bump” comic strip is syndicated in more than 400 newspapers and websites, including the Washington Post, Torontopr Globe & Mail, Detroit Free Press, Chicago Tribune, and the Indianapolis Star. In 2009 he was given the prestigious Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year—the highest honor awarded by the National Cartoonists Society.
Dave lives with his wife and two daughters in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and he took a few moments to chat with us about dogs, cartoons, dogs, BarkBox, and more dogs. (courtesy of BarkPost)

Humane Society of Huron Valley Bountiful Bowls Program:
The Humane Society of Huron Valley understands that financial difficulty often means making a list of priorities. Frequently, animals are forced to be low on that list. HSHV's Bountiful Bowls pet food assistance program helps Washtenaw County and Plymouth residents who are having difficulty meeting the nutritional needs of their dog or cat due to financial burden.
Trying times can be temporary. With a little assistance, a pet owner can often find a way to keep their pet in their home.
Mostly community-sourced and filled with never-before-told anecdotes, stories, photos, and intimate insights, "Dogs and Their People"spotlights over 200 unique and remarkable dogs. Some are celebri-dogs while others are just making their debut; some will make your heart ache, while others will make it soar; and others simply look really dapper in color. All bring to life and celebrate the crazy, consuming, insatiable love we feel for the World's Ultimate Best Friend in a book that is the perfect gift for Dog Lovers everywhere.
