Snootsy: a 15 years old Dachshund

Snootsy is a 15 years old ‘sausage’, aka a Dachshund.

Snootsy looks very goods for a 15 years old dog. He goes around and on occasion he still runs. We are not talking Speedy Gonzales (this is a reference to a Loony Tunes cartoon character from the 1950s), but a 15 years old dog.

Snootsy’s main problem is eating his food. If the …

Old English Sheepdog: 13 years old

Scruffy/Wet Old English Sheepdog

Oscar is a 13 years old Old English Sheepdog. He looks scruffy because in spite of being 13 years and a cold foggy winter day, he went to play into the sea.

Like all people that walk with their dog, they walk in sync and at the same pace.

I’m not talking about people that walk against their dog. That’s the ones on …

Old and Still Running Around: West Vancouver, BC

She’s mostly a Rhodesian Ridgeback, but she doesn’t have the ridge. Her owners think that she’s not a pure Rhodesian Ridgeback. She almost 11 years old (which is quite old for Rhodesian Ridgebacks) and she still loves to run around. On her collar, she has a little trinket that is both a small bell and an iPhone tracking device.

She runs and often goes into the bushes or the woods. So her owners have to search for her and it’s easier to find her with the little jingling bell. What about the iPhone tracking device? There are a lot of dead spots in the mountains and the forests.

BTW, they told me her name but by the time I remembered to write it down, I forgot…

Yoda, Born to be Wild: Vancouver, BC

His owner has upgraded from a bicycle with a little sidecar for Yoda, still the German WWI style, to a small electrical scooter with the same German WWI decorations. So now Yoda rides shotgun on the little platform in the middle. Yoda doesn’t move, just turns his head left or right…

Yoda’s getting older. He’s still a very nice and polite dog. He hasn’t tried to come and sniff my dog who’s standing behind me. Yoda is leashed to the glove box under the handle bars.

And yes, the name Yoda is from the Star Wars movies.
