'i love my golden retriever' sticker

I Love my Golden Retriever’ sticker

Somebody had a sticker: “I Love my Golden Retriever” on their car. It was an old Ford Focus, semi-rusted and starting to fall apart. The sticker must not be that old since it’s still white but somewhat peeling. The car is starting to rust and some of the paint is already peeling.

I’ve seen that car on regular basis, but I’ve …

Fierce and Determined Dog on Her Way

This dog looks so fierce and determined.

Nobody and nothing was going to stop her. I don’t know where she was going or who she was with. I didn’t see anybody that was obviously looking like a dog owner without a dog. Most of the times, it will be somebody with a leash in their hands or wrapped around their body …

Sausage, aka a Dachshund

A Sausage, aka a Dachshund

This is a sausage, aka a Dachshund. Dachshunds are supposed to hunt badgers, prairie dogs… Many are fierce like they are supposed to be, but the majority of the Dachshunds, that I know of, are shy and afraid of the world. But, somehow the Dachshund remains one of the most popular dog.

The Dachshund is not a “manly” dog, but I like them. It’s …

Dog Running With His Owner Biking

Before having dogs, I use to bike. Then I got my first dog and the dream of going biking with my dog running along side. Like I said, it was a dream. It didn’t happen. I have never been able to bike with any of my dogs.

It’s always much easier to blame it on the dogs rather than blame oneself. All …

Old English Sheepdog Waiting Patiently

This female photographer (Ursula) is hand holding a Sigma 50-500 at 500mm. It’s very impressive. Yes, there is some kind of stabilization built into the lens, but Sigma has never been known for making outstanding lens stabilization. The other thing is that the Sigma 50-500 is a very economical/budget lens with a 10x magnification. At the time, it was impressive and one of …

Dog with Halti: Vancouver, BC

Rosie’s a ‘puller’ during the walks. She wears the leash on her nose. It’s called a Halti. Rosie’s learning not to pull on the leash.

The theory is:

  1. The dog has less strength to pull when the leash is on the bridge of the nose.
  2. If the dog pulls, it will hurt a very sensitive part of the their body. So they …

Must Be The Most Expensive Camera Bag

category Photographers • 1 min read

Imelda Marcos, the wife of Ferdinand Marcos, the ex-president of the Philippine, was famous for having a closet the size of a large bedroom with the walls having 1000s of pairs of shoes, costing millions of dollars.

I’m not as bad with camera bags as Imelda Marcos was with shoes, but I can always look…

I found this bag on Amazon on August 6th: It looks like a ‘cheap …

Guarding the Land Rover: Vancouver, BC

This Border Collie is NOT guarding the Land Rover. Not once did s/he bark.

Often dogs, in cars, will show courage and bark at people that are close to the car, especially if people walk by with their own dog, like I did. I circled (almost) the car, front, back and side. The Border Collie kept on looking at me, but not a …
