cat waiting at the door

This cat wanted to come back into the house but there was nobody. When I passed there, she was already waiting and when I came back about 45 minutes later she was still waiting.

Since the photo was taken just before 6pm, I guess that she must have been waiting for her meal.

One of the problem is that in my neighborhood, there are coyotes …

I spoke with his owner, Larry. He takes Harley twice a day for an hour to the park, they live a block away from the park. What I’m not sure, I forgot to ask, if they come to the park for an hour each time …

Great Dogs at Agility

This Border Collie is an athlete at the top of her game. She runs, she jumps, she concentrates on not making any mistake and she didn’t. In the end, she finished second on her class.

It’s called agility racing for a reason. Not only these dogs need a lot of agility, they have no idea of where they are running. They have no idea …

Border Collie Rescuing Her Frisbee

The owner of this Border Collie kept on throwing her favorite Frisbee in the water. The dog wasn’t too keen, he had to encourage her many times for her to jump in the water. Don’t forget it was her “favorite” Frisbee.

He said that her was doing this to cool her down. It was a hot July day.

Dogs naturally starts doing the …

Dog Running: Vancouver, BC

This dog kept on running. If it moved, she ran after it. I’m not sure who her owner was. She never went to her owner while I was there.

  • Dogs don’t handle heat and humidity very well
  • Dogs need frequent breaks, to recharge, go to the bathroom…
  • Energetic dogs will chew up sofas, eat shoes… They need to run.

BTW, dogs with short noses …

Dog Sleeping but Attentive

This dog looks like he’s sleeping. He kind of sleeping. Not only he’s sleeping but he’s also on alert in his sleep.

  2. Look at …
