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.

If he can get into something, he will. Even if can’t get into something, somehow he will still find …

dog wondering

Dog wondering what these weird noises are

Dogs do not pretend to be something that they are not. They do not try to control their images. In front of cameras, people become stiff because they concentrate on what they should look on camera. Dogs do not pretend to be something else. They are what they 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 …

very pushy Mastiff

Big George is a pushy Mastiff

This big Mastiff is named ‘Big George’ and weighs at least 175lbs (his last weighting was about a year ago).

Big George knows that he’s big. He is very, very pushy and when he pushes he often gets his way.

I don’t think I could ever own a Mastiff because of all the farts and because of the drool/slobber. (I think …

Cairn/Norfolk Terrier that is due for a good trim

Cleo needs a “good trim”

Cleo is supposed to be a mix between a Cairn Terrier and a Norfolk Terrier (that’s what her owner was told but somehow she doesn’t seem convinced when she said it.) She knows a dozen tricks and Cleo loves learning new tricks. She gets paid extremely well when learning and doing tricks…

BTW, she’s due for a wash and a ‘good trim …

Chihuahua Howling: Vancouver, BC

Normally, Chihuahuas bark. They bark a lot. It’s a small dog then it’s small barks but they are annoying barks.

This Chihuahua didn’t bark, she howled and howled and howled. She kept on because her owner wasn’t acknowledging that there was a big danger coming (aka: me taking her photo). This is proof that the standard recommendation to deal with dogs howling …
