Incoming Sausage: Vancouver, BC

Dachshunds, aka sausages (that’s what I call them), are among the most expressive dogs. With their big ears and their eyes… I have a soft spot for them & I love it.

A very common say about Dachshund is:

Dachshunds Train You

It’s possible to train a Dachshund but it will take a lot of patience and also a lot of consistency. Often training a …

Bowser the French Bulldog: Vancouver, BC

Bowser, a French Bulldog, looks so serious. He reminds of Robert De Niro when he said in Taxi Driver:

You talkin’ to me?”

To me, Bowser looks like a gangster in a Black & White movie from the 1940s. In fact, Bowser’s not like that. He’s just on a mission of walking with Lena. Everybody has to get out of his way. As …

Basenji Watching Dragon Boat Races: Vancouver, BC

I did photo at the Vancouver Dragon Boat Races.

Cookie, the Basenji, is not interested in watching the Dragon Boat races. As long as she is on the shoulders of her owner, she’s happy. It all started when they went for hiking and there a very rocky portion of the hike. Cookie, the Basenji, could not climb some of the rocks, so …

Waiting for the Rain: Vancouver, BC

Waiting for the Rain: Vancouver, BC

Vancouver is on the edge of the Pacific, and the home of what’s left of last tempered rain forest in North America.

And the keyword is: rain. We get the rain from the mountains and from the North. We get the rain from the Pacific, eight thousand kilometres to pickup moisture and then it falls on us because of the mountains. And we …

Henry Running With Branch: Vancouver, BC

Henry, a brindle French Bulldog, is just past a year old. He loves sticks. The bigger the stick, the better. I’m always amazed how big of a stick he can carry and run with sticks that are much bigger than him, in this case, almost a whole branch.

He will run like this, dropping and picking up a branch here, a stick there …

Dog Waiting For His Biscuit: Vancouver, BC

Dog Waiting For His Biscuit

This dog is patiently waiting for his biscuit. He’s patient and he wants to be paid for his work. He’s laying in the middle of the stairs. That way he makes sure that nobody can pass by and forgets that he hasn’t been paid yet. “He worked hard, now pay-up.”

He looks like a German Shepherd puppy, but he’s 13 years …

Cashew, the Pitbull: Vancouver, BC

Cashew is a half pitbull and half who knows what.

Cashew is the reason why so many people love their pitbulls. He’s so nice and gentle. He doesn’t want to offend anybody. He won’t look directly at anybody, including me. Looking at me directly could be a sign of aggression. He doesn’t even take my treats.

Cashew’s past was unknown …

Yoda, the Pug: Vancouver, BC

Yoda, the Pug: Vancouver, BC

Yoda is an old pug.

He rides in a bicycle sidecar designed like an old German plane from World War I. It should be a motorcycle, but it’s a bicycle.

His name is Yoda just like the Yoda from the Star Wars serie.

Yoda, the pug, is supposed to be wise with the ‘wisdom of the force’. He puts up with the leather helmet …
