Running Dog

Some dogs are pampered and do nothing. Some dogs have to work for a living. This dog is working, he’s running and he’s on the hunt. He’d rather sniff around but he has to work. He’s working very hard to keep pace with his owner. Look at the leash and how relaxed it it.

Many people jog with dogs. It’s safe. I’m always amazed by the number of people that are afraid of dogs.

Some times ago, I was in one of the park of Burnaby, a suburb of Vancouver, and two tried to pull some kind of weapon on me, and then they saw my dog which looked like a German Shepard and they put their weapon in their pocket and turned around. It looked like either a large knife or a small silver machete. My dog did nothing, but just his presence made these 2 guys reconsider…

My dog earned a lifetime of his keep (including the biscuits and the pig ears) in just this one afternoon.
