No where is that statement more true than here in good old Bend, where I’m pretty sure dogs out number humans. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to interview #50startups founders and been greeted by their furry co-workers (in this case not bearded men, though there’s a lot of those too).

So to celebrate our four-legged friends who care less about fundraising, product launches, app features and client service and more about you — and naps — I’m asking for submissions. Send me photos of your startup dogs and I’ll post some of the best.

Include your name, company and the name of your pup. Email: [email protected] Here’s one to get us started.
