Jack Russell running with ball

Jack Russell Running and She’s Not Even Tired

This is Loca. Loca is the female of Loco, meaning crazy in Spanish. Loca is a very energetic Jack Russell female. It takes her about an hour of running after the ball for her to start getting tired and too slow down ‘a little bit.’

Old Greyhound: Vancouver, BC

Old Greyhound

Almost all Greyhounds, in my area, are rescued from US and Mexican racing tracks, this one is no exception. She must have been injured because she had a slight limp.

Once, I tried to adopt a greyhound from the local greyhound rescue. I was denied because I was not good enough! The two ladies that interviewed us where shocked and outraged that I wouldn’t let the dog …

Henry is a French Bulldog. He’s small, short, compact and pretty heavy, for a French Bulldog, at 38 pounds/17 kilos.

With his short legs, a big and a heavy chest, in the water, he would drown. The problem is that Henry loves to swim at the lake, in the sea, or a river… It doesn’t matter to him, he likes …

Pitt Bull Walking By: Vancouver, BC

He was just walking by. There is some pitbull in him so many people were afraid of him. He was so calm and relaxed…

This pitbull is almost all black, except for the couple of white spots.

It’s very difficult to photograph black dogs. By definition a black dog is black. Black is not a colour, black is a lack of colour. This …

golden retriever running at full speed

Golden Retriever Running at Full Speed

This Golden Retriever is going to retrieve some kind of ball with a rope. He’s running at full speed… Normally, Golden Retrievers do not chase like that, they are retrievers. I wonder if he’s a cross?

It’s actually quite rare to see such a big dog, except for Greyhounds, Afghans…, to run so fast.

Usually, Golden Retrievers like running. Golden Retrievers …

dog walking wearing a bandanna and sun glasses

Cool Dog Walking

This was in on a nice sunny warm spring day. If a person wears sunglasses on sunny days, shouldn’t a dog also wear sunglasses in the sun?

This dog wasn’t too crazy about it.

When she noticed me and turned his head quickly, the glasses fell off on one side. It quickly became uncomfortable and her owner had to put the glasses back in place …
