Golden Retriever waiting in the grass to attack her ‘prey’

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.

Afraid of the Camera

This Golden Retriever puppy was outgoing, jumping around, looking at me and at my dog. I pulled the camera that was dangling from my shoulder. Immediately, he sat and turned his head away. No matter what I did, he refused to look at me when I had the camera out. I even tried my duck quacking sound. That sound gets all dogs to get the puzzled …

Frankie, the Dachshund — Vancouver, BC

Frankie is an 11 years old “sausage”, aka a Dachshund, with high blood pressure. He’s very unhappy about it. Now in addition to his pills, he is also on a low-sodium diet. This means that Frankie can’t eat any of his favorite treats such as pepperoni, sausage, roast beef, tuna… It’s a real disaster!

Years ago, I saw this lady, she had …

Small White Bichon Frise with Red Booties

This photo was made just outside one of the big tower with hundreds of apartments in the Vancouver Downtown.

She wears booties outside so she doesn’t scratch her painted nails and also so she doesn’t dirty her paws. The owner doesn’t want her to dirty the carpet.

BTW, I forgot to ask for the name of the dog.
