Pinkie: Vancouver, BC

Her real name is Soleil. That’s the French word for Sun. I call her Pinkie because of a pink sweater

Her owner was in a hurry so I didn’t have time to ask her why she named her dog Sun/Soleil.

Pinkie’ is a cross between a miniature Pinscher and a Chihuahua.

The Evil Eye: Vancouver, BC

Isn’t this the evil eye? He’s trying to match my ‘big monster eye’, aka the camera lens. Did he attack me? No, I diffused the situation that was in the happening by making my Duffy Duck (from Walt Disney) voice. It immediately changed his mood.

The Evil Eye: Vancouver, BC

This dog is a Whippet mutt, her owner wasn’t too sure.

Just the look and the holding of the head gives her the ‘evil eye’. She was a very nice but skittish dog.

An Almost Old Golden Retriever: Vancouver, BC

I was walking down the street when I saw this ‘older’ Golden Retriever. She looks old. I made a quick comment, just after taking this photograph, and her owner said:

No! She’s only 8 years old.
She started becoming white when she was 3.

Turning on a Dime: Vancouver, BC

This chocolate Labrador had a great time catching and retrieving this Hol-ee Ball. It’s amazing how agile these Labradors can be and how quickly they can turn on a dime.

Mischievous Dog: Vancouver, BC

Some dogs’ face look mischievous. In this case, it’s the beautiful smile, the eyes and the ears and mostly how he crosses his legs.

In fact, this dog is not mischievous at all, but he is at full attention and hasn’t decided if we are friend or foe.

The Balloon and a French Bulldog: Vancouver, BC

This French Bulldog, aka Frenchie, is fixated on balloons. He chases balloons. He tries to grab the balloon but most of the times it explodes.

While I was at the beach, he must have popped at least 8 balloons. His owner had a full bag from one of these party supplies.

The Killer Boots: Vancouver, BC

This lady was very nice. She posed with her dog. I knelled, as I usually do, in front of them when they were walking toward me. I smiled, she stopped and posed. I took my photo and then…

2 seconds after this photograph, the dog lounged to attack me. She didn’t growl, but I could see that she was getting ready, by lowering her rear and getting ready to jump. I thought that if she would attack, she would attack my dog. No, she tried to go for me.
