dog walking on the vancouver seawall

This dog’s name is River

My usual way of working is:

  • I usually spot the people with dogs about 50 meters to 100 meters away. That’s around 50 to 100 yards away.
  • I make sure that my dog is on my left and the leash is around my wrist. I make the photos while walking with my own dog. I get my position, which background I want to …

Bella: a very hard working Bulldog

Bella is a 6 month old Bulldog. She runs, she bites, she destroys, she plays for about half an hour, then it’s time for her to recharge her batteries.

She was already on the fake leather couch. She turned and fell asleep in less than 2 seconds. Like almost all Bulldogs, she snores in her sleep. I don’t mind when dogs snore …

Frenchie Running With a Huge Frisbee

This French Bulldog, aka a Frenchie, was running after the Frisbee and picking it up to return it to his owner. He never tried to catch the Frisbee while the Frisbee was in the air. He was waiting for the Frisbee to reach the ground and to almost stop. Then, he picked up the Frisbee. He did that for the whole time I was …

Dachshund running on the Vancouver Seawall

Sausages, aka the Dachshunds, are not known to be “running machines”. But many people go jogging around the Vancouver Seawall with their Dachshunds. This Dachshund is not even tired, no open mouth, no tongue dangling, no panting… From the location on the Vancouver Seawall, he must have run at least a kilometre (slightly more than ½ mile) because it’s on the water and …

Photographing a Black Dog

Photographing black dogs is not simple nor easy.

  1. The camera wants everything to be gray. 18% gray to be more precise. So, according to the camera, the black dog would be gray. BTW, it’s the same with snow, the camera wants the snow to be gray and not white and bright.
  2. Black dogs are black (duh!). Black itself is not a colour, it is the …

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 …
