Waiting for her owner to throw the ball

This lady was taking her time before throwing the ball. She was fainting and trying to trick her dog, while her dog was saying:

Husky late for meeting

This Husky has to run. She’s behind and she needs to catch up.

She was dillydallying, sniffing around and now she has to run to catch up to her owner who’s not waiting for her.

Huskies are big and very energetic dogs. They need a lot of exercise. I don’t think that a few walks daily would be enough.

Dog Being Leashed

I was testing a brand new lens, the Canon 40mm f/2.8. It’s a pancake lens, it’s very small and flat.

I saw this lady walking with her dog. I did my usual, kneel with one knee on the ground and wait for the dog to come to me. She saw me drop to my knee and raising the camera, I do not hide …

2 dogs meeting for the first time

2 Dogs Meeting for the First Time

This is the first time that these two dogs meet each other. How will they react to each other?

  1. There is some aggression in the dog on the right (my dog). It’s a low level aggression combined with excitement. Look at the ears, they are almost backward reducing the aggression signal of the high tail.
  2. There is a willingness from the Corgi …

They only got her a week …
