Crimson, a black dog, is on a leash at the beach

Crimson (this is black dog, so why is the name Crimson?) was on the leash at the beach. She was on the leash, even when she went in the water. She’s not allowed to run around because her owners don’t know if she will run away or what she’ll do.

Bernese Mountain puppy eating grass

Often dogs eat grass just like this Bernese Mountain dog, who’s still a puppy. He’s 11 month old and has a German name that I didn’t understand.

2 dogs sniffing each other

Why do dogs sniff each other’s butt?

They’ve been sniffing around in the neighborhood and now they need to know who was marking the territory. The dog that pees higher on the tree, the fire hydrant or the pole is the ‘top dog’. My own dog, the one on the right/top of the photo, can pee up to 50 times per hour …

Golden Lab carrying a wooden stick bigger than her

This Golden Lab picked up this huge piece of wood from the beach. And she was no way she letting it go. It didn’t matter if any other dog was coming close. She was not dropping it even for sniffing another dog.
