I love seeing dogs in cars.
It’s when some dogs are the happiest – tagging along, hoping for adventure.
Photographer Rondi Lightmark has captured this happiness through her greeting card company Lightmark Arts.
Her 5 X 7 cards feature beautiful portraits of dogs in cars around Washington’s Vashon Island.

To make it easy, I chose a couple of cards (throughout this post) I thought many of you would like. If we all ordered just $20 worth of cards, we can make quite the impact for Motley Zoo. Klik her.
More about Lightmark Arts and Vashon Island
Rondi Lightmark lives on Vashon Island, which is 20 minutes from Seattle by ferry.
She said 99 percent of her photos are taken on the island, and the area has lots of cool, old cars and trucks with dogs in them.
Her cards are about celebrating dogs in cars and that “ubiquitous delight we see on every road and in every parking lot whenever we venture out.”
I love these cards.
They remind me of my life in more rural areas like North Dakota and visiting family in northern California – places where it’s not such a big deal to bring your dog while you run an errand or to let your best friend ride in the back of a pickup on a quiet, county road.
I can’t wait to move to the country, and these cards make a statement to me about enjoying the simple things in life, about not getting tied up in silly dramas or politics like whether or not you should let your pup stick her nose out vinduet.
Maybe I need to visit Vashon Island.
The cards are sold all over the united states (and in Canada too) in places like the Phoenix Art Museum, art galleries, coffee shops, hardware stores, veterinary clinics and at the gift shop of best friends animal society in Utah.
As Rondi said, the cards are sold “wherever dogs are loved.”
She said many of the dogs featured on the cards are no longer living, so it’s important to her that “their sweet spirits keep on giving all the same.”

Motley Zoo is a nonprofit, foster-based animal rescue in Washington. It does not have an actual shelter facility, so the animals are housed in temporary foster families while they wait to be adopted into forever homes.
When Rondi asked me which cause I’d like to help for this post, I immediately thought of Motley Zoo.
jme Thomas works as a full time, volunteer executive director of Motley Zoo and she and her team make such a HUGE difference for dogs in the region and beyond. To date, the group has helped more than 1,600 animals find their loving homes.
Pictured is Quinn, a 10-year-old Chihuahua for adoption through Motley Zoo.
