Henri the Basset Hound, aka Droopy: Vancouver, BC

This is Henri (that’s the French Henry with an i at the end), a Basset Hound. I like Basset Hounds. My own ‘beast’ is a furry Basset Hound. When Henri stands looking at me, he really looks like Droopy.

Droopy was a cartoon character created by Tex Avery in the 1940s for MGM (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer) in Hollywood. Droopy was voiced mostly by …

9 Weeks Old French Bulldog with an Attitude

Frenchie is the nickname for French Bulldogs.

Henry is a 9 weeks old and already he has an attitude. The attitude didn’t last too long.

By the time he became a year old, he transformed himself from a serious dog into a full time “goofy”. Now he either:

  • sleeps 10 to 12 hours at a stretch.
  • runs around from one side …

These two dogs are following the school of ‘doggie good manners’. Rusty, the Boxer, is asking the chocolate Lab if he wants to play. And the chocolate Lab says yes but be nice…

Sticking his Tongue Out in Protest

It was a sunny day, but it wasn’t hot, in the low 10 degrees celsius. It was just one of the first ‘real spring days’.

This French Bulldog would not look at me, but he kept his tongue out for our encounter. It’s almost like he’s disgusted with his owner making stop and wait, so I could take his photo.

The …

Avoiding the Waves: Vancouver, BC

This dog went into the water, but on the way out of the water, he would jump over every wave.

I don’t know if he was avoiding the waves or if he was playing with the waves. He did it a few times but he only jumped over the waves on the way out, never when he was going in the water.

The Dog Days of Summer: Vancouver, BC

Most dogs will put up with their owners’ antics.

Henry is definitely not thrilled with being in the baby swing. He swayed there for a good 10 minutes, but he puts up with it. There’s a reason for Henry to put up with some of these eccentricities, he gets paid very well. He got to run around for over an hour before …

Mr. Mischief: A 9 Years Old Bulldog Mix Who Deserves His Name

This is Mr. Mischief. He’s a 9 year old bulldog mix and he deserves his name.

If he can get into something, he will. Even if can’t get in, somehow he will still find a way, mostly involving force or chewing. The real problem, for him, is how to get out… He’s been trapped into …
