This one will be her last. Loren Marino, 42, of Manchester, is dying of cancer. For almost a decade, she and her 12-year-old Cesky Terrier, Hector, have been fixtures at the annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York. This week, Marino and Hector will be there again. But she expects that this one will be her last. Quality of life, not quantity, is what she said she wants most. Her amazing story here. Photos by Jason Towlen.

When I’m not jumping around on ice floes, I have a whole other career and life in NYC. I’m a Digital Strategist (whatever that means!) at an awesome little agency in Soho called GLOW. I am here for 6 months now, well, 19 weeks and counting, until I am off on my next adventure. If anywhere or anyone can get me to sit still for 6 months, it’s GLOW.
My main project is the Westminster Dog Show (February 16th and 17th in NYC) and it is a blast. Yesterday I live-streamed a Press Conference where 2 new breeds were introduced as well as these 3 lovely sisters from New Jersey who will be each showing a dog at this year’s show.
It’s really hard for me to get behind sitting at a desk and in front of a computer all day, but when I’m mostly looking at photos of dogs, it ain’t so bad.
If by any chance you’ll be at the Dog Show in NYC next month, let me know! Would be fun to see you there.
