Catharine Handfelt, Kirkland photographer and creator of “100 Hounds of Kirkland” - a series of photographs showcasing canines all over Kirkland - announced that she will unveil her photos of 170-plus Kirkland dogs on Kirkland’s Park Lane from 6-9 p.m. Sept. 10. The first-ever “Bark the Vote” event will allow the public to vote for their favorite “hounds” for the upcoming “2010 100 Hounds of Kirkland Calendar” - with net proceeds benefitting the Seattle Humane Society.

“Bark the Vote” will be part of Kirkland’s “Second Thursdays on Park Lane” series. Citizens are invited to vote/donate $1 per vote for their favorite dog with numbered photos of all of the participating dogs on display. The top 12 fundraising dogs will receive a spot in the calendar, while the 2010 “Coverdog” spot will be auctioned off that night at the event. For information, visit
