The Ambush: West Vancouver, BC


This Golden Retriever was waiting in the grass. She was waiting and waiting. She was waiting a good a 10 minutes.

Eventually the owner signaled and she started to chase/hunt something. I don’t know what she was chasing, I couldn’t see. But she was definitely running after/chasing something and it was small.

Golden Retrievers are hunters. Their job is to wait for the kill, then run to retrieve the “dead duck”. I didn’t know, but it turns out that Golden Retrievers need to be trained to hunt!
