My Dog

This is my dog. His name is Dodoïte (pronounced: Dodo ïte). Most people think that he’s some Australian Sheepdog. That’s mostly because of the colour of his coat which you can’t see since the image is in black and white and because of his ears.

The thing is that he can do whatever he wants with his ears.

Happy Dog in the Snow

Happy Dog happy in the Snow

Life has been hard for the Dodoïte (pronounced: Dodo ïte), especially in Vancouver. He doesn’t like Vancouver. He’s been attacked by ‘vicious trees’ that have been attacking him while he tries to pee. He’s been attacked by his own tail. He’s been attacked by airplanes… He’s afraid of his own shadow, literally and this is not a figure of …

Worried Dodoïte: Vancouver, BC

This is my dog, Dodoïte (pronounced: Dodo ïte). He’s a half Basset Hound, half Australian Shepherd, and half Corgi. He’s not doing well.

He’s becoming more and more frightened by the city noises. Airplanes, helicopters, trucks, buses… Pretty much any unexpected noise, even the rain dripping on metallic things. One day it’s no problem and the next day he’s afraid of it.

He grew up in the mountains and I’d be surprised if he saw more than a couple of people a day and maybe one car per day… My current therapy is to go for long walks (and I make him work) so he doesn’t have the time to think about the noises.

A Happy Dodoïte: West Vancouver, BC

This is my dog, Dodoïte (pronounced: Dodo ïte). He’s happy, this is one of his favorite walk, Ambleside Park in West Vancouver, BC. He loves running around and sniffing the other dogs.

He hates the city. The city scares him. All the sharp noises, the people, the cars, the big trucks, the planes overhead, the constructions, the sudden moves… Everything scares him. He hates the rain, he hates the wind. Just yesterday a tree attacked him. He was in the middle of his pee and the tree moved to attack him. He clamped it and he didn’t have another pee for the rest of the day until this morning.
