Chocolate Lab chasing Hol-ee ball

This chocolate lab, Cooper, kept on chasing that Hol-ee ball. It is very easy to throw, and it was very easy for him to catch it. This lab had a ‘field day’ with it. Most of the time, Cooper was able to catch it in the air. It’s a great training tool for the fetch.It’s so good that many dogs want to …

Eager to Play: Vancouver, BC

Eager to Play, Vancouver, BC

This dog, Polo, is eager to play but he can’t. The problem is that he lives on the park. Not by the park or across the street school/park. If the owner opens the gate, it’s the park, no street to cross. The park is literally at the bottom of the stairs. I am in the park as I took this photo.

Chow Staring Into Camera

This Chow is named Bear. Not only he looks the part, he’s also fearless.

This is me and him at four feet away, actually it’s me, my camera and Bear. I think that he knows that I’m not a threat, but he’s not going to back down. On the other hand, he was very cooperative. He sat when told, he walked when …

He’s not attacking me, he just wants to investigate who and what am I? At this point nothing else matters in his world. He wants to see and kind of sniff what’s in front.

I’m kneeling on the ground to take his photo. Why is he pulling? Charlie, he’s a 7 years old English Bulldog and he wants to know what …

2 Small Dogs Wearing Booties

I took this photo in Yaletown in Vancouver, BC, just by the seawall and False Creek.

After I took the images of these 2 small dogs with their booties, I started talking to the owner about why did the dogs wear these booties. She said that it was to keep the carpets clean in her apartment.

This way, they only wear the booties outside. BTW …

Buddha, The Pug: Vancouver, BC

Buddha, an older Pug

Normally for almost all of my dog and cat photography, I’m either kneeling or laying down on my belly to be at the same level as the cat or the dog.

Buddha is a “shortie”, he knows that. So unlike almost all the other small dogs, he climbs and finds his way around to be either at eye level or above the people. That’s …

Hunter: Vancouver Downtown Eastside, BC

His name, Hunter, was very well deserved. He would hunt anything that moved, especially if it ran.

Just a few days after this photo, Hunter saw some cat across the street, he jumped out of the car before his owner had time to leash him. Hunter across the street. He was hit by a car and didn’t survive. Hunter was only 2 years old …
