Lighting A Dog Star


Sirius, the dog star, is the brightest star in the northern hemisphere, and part of the constellation “Canis Major” (the big dog). 

The dogs that come into our lives, as companions, often become our bright stars–lighting our way, our hearts, our lives.  The Chinook Project provides a way for you to honour that light–either as it fades to a cherished memory, or as a new spark that appears in your life.

You can make a donation to the Chinook Project, and then send us (through the contact form) a photo of your dog star, and a paragraph or two about him/her.  We will create a page for that dog on this site–to memorialize a life well-loved, or celebrate a partnership just beginning–or any other milestone.

Your donation means that your pup lights the way for the Chinook Project, giving other dogs a chance at a healthy life.
