Carrying His Yorkie: West Vancouver, BC

Once, I was looking after a Chihuahua. She refused to walk because her owner always carried her. I refuse to carry any dog, not even a Yorkie or a Chihuahua.

I must be mean. I put the leash on her and without looking or arguing, I started walking. She tried to resist for a couple of seconds, then she went walking with me.

I …

Spring in Vancouver, BC

man walking with his golden retriever by the beach

Spring in Vancouver, BC

Actually, I’m cheating a little bit, this is not Vancouver. Vancouver is in the background, and it’s Stanley Park. The man and his Golden Retriever are in West Vancouver, just a bridge away from Vancouver.

If the traffic flow is good, this is a 10 minutes drive. If the traffic flow is not that good, it could take half an hour and on some …

Frenchie at the Park: West Vancouver, BC

French Bulldog at the Park

I really liked how Henry, a French Bulldog aka Frenchie, was drinking from the water fountain at the park.

I don’t know why, but I’ve noticed that almost all dogs prefer to drink from a fountain or running water rather than drinking from their water dish.

Some dogs do not have any problem drinking during walks, but my dog https://www.sritch.com …

Dexter: Eager to Please

Boxer: Vancouver Seawall

Dexter is a 9 month old Boxer. He’s eager to please. I had to get his attention and my Daffy Duck imitation did the trick.

A dog sitting, I call these images, the “cheap shots”. Anybody can do a dog sitting. It’s quick, it’s easy… You can’t go wrong, these are the smartphone photos.

Even though, I always do some photos of the …

Dodoïte: The Corgi Crazed Look

Years ago, I decided not make people look bad. This photo is different:

  • This is my dog. My dog’s name is Dodoïte (pronounced: Dodo ïte). He’s a half Basset Hound, half Australian Shepherd, and half Corgi. His history is fairly sketchy and it has changed over time since we got him.

  • My dog has 2 faces. The serious Australian Sheppard and the crazy …

Snootsy — The Flying Sausage: Vancouver, BC

Snootsy is a 15 years old Dachshund, aka a ‘sausage’. He’s 15 years old and he still runs.

15 years old would be the equivalent of 105 years old for us, humans. Will I be able to run down the street at 105?

Sometimes, actually more often than sometimes, he becomes grumpy, sometimes it’s the joints not working properly, sometimes it’s …
