Dachshund running

Dachshund running on the Vancouver Seawall

Sausages, aka the Dachshunds, are not known to be “running machines”. But many people go jogging around the Vancouver Seawall with their Dachshunds. This Dachshund is not even tired, no open mouth, no tongue dangling, no panting… From the location on the Vancouver Seawall, he must have run at least a kilometre (slightly more than ½ mile) because it’s on the water and …

Photographing a Black Dog

Photographing black dogs is not simple nor easy.

  1. The camera wants everything to be gray. 18% gray to be more precise. So, according to the camera, the black dog would be gray. BTW, it’s the same with snow, the camera wants the snow to be gray and not white and bright.
  2. Black dogs are black (duh!). Black itself is not a colour, it is the …

Border Collie with only 3 legs

Pip after his surgery

Pip (or is it Peep, I should have asked how Pip/Peep is spelled) is a Border Collie with only 3 legs.

About a year ago, he had surgery to amputate his front left leg. There was some cancer that “didn’t respond to treatment” (his owner’s exact words). ‘They’ amputated his front left leg. It took Pip a few weeks to recover and now …

Walking the dog before going to work

Before Going to Work

This was a nice warm and dry February morning. We do have these in Vancouver…

This lady was walking her dog, one last time, before going to work. A quick walk around the block, a quick pee and then Bella will have to ‘hold the fort’ for the rest of the day.

How do I know that information? I see her a few times a week …

Mr. Mischief: A 9 Years Old Bulldog Mix

This is Mr. Mischief. He’s a 9 year old bulldog mix and he deserves his name. He had another name when they got him, but his name quickly changed to Mr. Mischief. As all good bulldogs, Mr Mischief is very stubborn.

Dog wondering what these weird noises are

Often dogs are ‘funny’ in what they do and how they do it. This …

Golden Retriever coming to ask me: what do you want?

This Golden Retriever came to ask me what did I want. She came to me, looked at me, waited with the “look”.

She came to see me. I walk and take the photos with my dog on his leash (usually). Since this is a dog park, he was without his leash but staying behind me (for protection). She didn’t …
