Dog Missing In Action

Front Door With Dog House

I really like this house’s front door. The dog house and the small bug next to the mat.

I liked it so much that eventually, I spoke with the owner of the house. They don’t have a dog, but they have an indoor cat. They never had a dog but the dog house is to balance the Roman bust.

Snootsy: Vancouver, BC

15 years old Dachshund

Snootsy: a 15 years old Dachshund

Snootsy is a 15 years old ‘sausage’, aka a Dachshund.

Snootsy looks very goods for a 15 years old dog. He goes around and on occasion he still runs. We are not talking Speedy Gonzales (this is a reference to a Loony Tunes cartoon character from the 1950s), but a 15 years old dog.

Snootsy’s main problem is eating his food. If the …

Waiting @ Granville Island

Dog Waiting at Granville Island

Granville Island is one of the top touristic destination in Vancouver, BC. Before, “in the good old days”, it was mostly locals that went to Granville Island to do their grocery shopping. Nowadays, it’s mostly tourists especially in the summer.

This was in September and somebody brought their dog, went in to do some shopping. Usually most of the dogs are very unhappy, either …

It’s Not Her Dog

This person works in the cafe, Elysee Coffee. One of the customer left her French Bulldog, aka a Frenchie, outside so she went out and starting hugging the Frenchie. When she saw me kneeling to take the photo, she turned the “beast” around and ta-dah…

BTW, you can see my dog’s reflection in the window on the right side as he waits patiently for …

Cocker Spaniel or Lion?

This Cocker Spaniel is in serious need of a good clip. Sam hasn’t had his (I think that’s it’s a him) hair cut in quite a few month, but he’s well kept. Everyday, he get a vigorous raking. The rake is stronger than a brush and it has only one row of “teeth”.

Sam, the cocker spaniel, reminds me of the movie …

This is my dog, walking around, in the snow in Whistler, BC. His name is Dodoïte (pronounced: Dodo ïte). He’s a furry Basset Hound. He’s basically a Basset Hound with longer legs and in the forest, in the woods, in the mountains he becomes a “real dog”.

Normally, in town (I live in Vancouver, BC), he’s afraid of everything. Every …

Walking with Huskies: Vancouver, BC

Everybody was getting out of her way. Nobody was coming close to this lady and her two Huskies.

It was interesting to see all the people going out of their way to avoid the dogs. Not once did thee Huskies bark. Not once did they growl. These Huskies were perfectly behaved.

Unhappy Camper: Vancouver, BC

This dog didn’t like at all that I took her photo. She was laying on the stairs with her owner during her owner’s lunch break.

Most likely, she didn’t like the sound of the shutter of the camera.

The nice thing about stairs is that dogs can’t run or move easily while on the stairs. They can fly up and down a set of stairs but only if they start from the top of the stairs or from the bottom of the stairs. If they are seating or laying down on a stair, it will take them a while to get in position to move.

The Eyes: Vancouver, BC

The look, the eyes.

This Cairn Terrier is starring straight into the camera. I’m only 2½ meters (8ft) away. No fear, no aggression, just wondering: “What am I?” and “What am I doing?”

It’s the slight tilt of the head that make me think that she’s puzzled. On the other hand, I may be reading too much…
