Dodoïte in the Snow: Vancouver, BC

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 speech.

Vancouver, BC, doesn’t …

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.

Dodoïte Tracking: Vancouver, BC

My dog, Dodoïte (pronounced: Dodo ïte), is doing his work. He’s busy tracking. Tracking what? I don’t know. But he goes tracking when he’s in the forest or in the countryside.

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.

Dodoïte — Clueless: Vancouver, BC

This is what happens when doggies are kept in cages, instead of going to school! They don’t learn how to read the big signs. My previous dog would have given his opinion by peeing on it!

My dog, Dodoïte (pronounced: Dodo ïte), hates the city. The city scares him. All the sharp noises, the people, the cars, the big trucks, the planes overhead, the sudden moves… Everything scares him.

I take him to the UBC endowment lands, a big park, and he becomes a dog. Actually he becomes a Basset Hound. He sniffs, he tracks, he pees (30 to 40 pees per hour!) he poops (4 to 5 times per walk and I bring a whole bunch of poop bags), he runs around (off leash)… Basically, he becomes a dog and when he’s happy he gets his ‘dumb Corgi look’.

The Great Chicken Conspiracy: Vancouver, BC

The Great Chicken Conspiracy

The Great Chicken Conspiracy

There is the 9/11 conspiracy where people claim that it was George Bush that bombed the Twin Towers in New York. There is the Area 51, in Nevada, conspiracy. The area is supposed to be closed because of aliens and UFOs.

At considerable personal risk, I have uncovered the ‘Great Chicken Conspiracy’.

There are chickens that have escaped the crutches of Tyson Foods and Mc Donald’s, aka the Mc …

Dodoïte at Work: Vancouver, BC

This is my dog, Dodoïte (pronounced: Dodo ïte). He’s a half Basset Hound, half Australian Shepherd, and half Corgi. His history is fairly sketchy and has changed since we got him.

This was not a good day for Dodoïte, he had to come to work, under my desk.

I closed his newly preferred spot: under the bed. The problem with Dodoïte under the bed, is that the bed is too low. He has to do the ‘limbo’ to squeeze under the bed and he has problems getting out from under the bed. So he had to come to work and spend some time with me…

Dodoïte: The Corgi Crazed Look, Vancouver, BC

Years ago, I decided not make people look bad. This photo is different:

  • This is my dog, Dodoïte (pronounced: Dodo ïte). He’s a half Basset Hound, half Australian Shepherd, and half Corgi. His history is fairly sketchy and has changed since we got him.

  • My dog has 2 faces. The serious Australian Sheppard and the crazy Corgi look with the big brown eyes when he is either very happy or very worried.
