Duffus The Basset Hound

I asked for the Basset Hound’s name and she told me that it was Dufus. She didn’t know what it meant, so I told her that in French it wasn’t complimentary. The closest English equivalent to duffus would be the word ‘dork’. It wasn’t her choice, but her boyfriend that gave him that name.

Duffus and I had a long conversation. He …

Jasper gets easily frazzled

Jasper gets easily frazzled

Jasper gets easily frazzled. Any noise, any movement and he is on alert. Does he need to escape? Earlier in his life, life wasn’t good for him (that’s all I know about it).

He never barks but if any stranger tries to pick him up, he will growl and he will ready himself to tear that person apart. He even growled at me when …

A Jogging Sausage, aka a Dachshund

I don’t know why, but I’ve always had a soft spot for ‘sausages’ aka the Dachshunds.

Maybe, it’s because they are short and have big eyes that are not black. They never look threatening…

One of my neighbour has long hair Dachshund and I really don’t like his ‘sausage’. He’s an extremely unpleasant ‘sausage’ that barks at everything. His …

JR: The Famous Jack Russell

JR stands for Jack Russell.

These days, JR is not a happy camper. JR used to be a star on the streets of the Vancouver Downtown Eastside. Almost everybody on the Vancouver Downtown Eastside would know him. He used to do tricks.

He would run up walls and do the flip, always landing on his feet. He’s been included in a few murals on …

French Bulldog flying

Capone is a 3 years old French Bulldog. Most people shorten the French Bulldog term to Frenchie. Frenchies are excellent house dogs.

Capone is short, pudgy, extremely heavy and very solid (aka fat). But when they want Frenchies can fly, literally. Most French Bulldogs are very friendly and usually very peaceful. But and it’s a big but, most Frenchies have very strong farts…

Small Terrified Yorkie Being Dressed Up With A Tuxedo Jacket

Joseph is dressing up Lucky in a tuxedo. Joseph’s daughter, who lives in Chicago, made the costume.

Lucky got his name because he was abandoned. He was picked up by some “shelter” and was just a couple of days from being “killed” because he was deemed as “un-adoptable”, so Joseph called him Lucky.

Lucky is scared of his own …

Yorkie Looking Like An Ewok

Koko is a very interesting dog. Koko is confident, sure of himself and his place into the world. He’s not bossy and he doesn’t like to be bossed around. He’s already 6 years old and so far he’s had a very good life.

Koko reminds me of the Ewoks in Star Wars — the Return of the Jedi. He may be five …

old female pitbull

Kallie was already an older Pit Bull when she was rescued from a shelter.

She is very polite. She does not provoke people nor dogs. She doesn’t look at anybody in the eyes nor any other animal. She walks around people or other dogs.

She even “sacrificed” herself to eat my treats.

Most Pit Bulls are very high energy and they need a lot of exercise …
