Cool Dog Walking

This was in on a nice sunny warm spring day. If a person wears sunglasses on sunny days, shouldn’t a dog also wear sunglasses in the sun?

This dog wasn’t too crazy about it.

When she noticed me and turned his head quickly, the glasses fell off on one side. It quickly became uncomfortable and her owner had to put the glasses back in place …

  3. He doesn’t like it to be held tight in the blanket.
  4. He wants to hide and …

This is Henri (that’s the French Henry with an i at the end), a Basset Hound. I like Basset Hounds. My own ‘beast’ is a furry Basset Hound. When Henri stands looking at me, he really looks like Droopy.

Droopy was a cartoon character created by Tex Avery in the 1940s for MGM (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer) in Hollywood. Droopy was voiced mostly by …

This Airedale couldn’t decide which way to pass me.

I take him to the UBC endowment lands. It’s a small forest in Vancouver, BC and he becomes a dog. Actually he becomes a Basset Hound. He …
