Jogging Sausage: Vancouver, BC

A Jogging Sausage, aka a Dachshund

I don’t know why, but I’ve always had a soft spot for ‘sausages’ aka the Dachshunds.

Maybe, it’s because they are short and have big eyes that are not black. They never look threatening…

One of my neighbour has long hair Dachshund and I really don’t like his ‘sausage’. He’s an extremely unpleasant ‘sausage’ that barks at everything. His …

JR: The Famous Jack Russell

JR stands for Jack Russell.

These days, JR is not a happy camper. JR used to be a star on the streets of the Vancouver Downtown Eastside. Almost everybody on the Vancouver Downtown Eastside would know him. He used to do tricks.

He would run up walls and do the flip, always landing on his feet. He’s been included in a few murals on …

French Bulldog flying

Capone is a 3 years old French Bulldog. Most people shorten the French Bulldog term to Frenchie. Frenchies are excellent house dogs.

Capone is short, pudgy, extremely heavy and very solid (aka fat). But when they want Frenchies can fly, literally. Most French Bulldogs are very friendly and usually very peaceful. But and it’s a big but, most Frenchies have very strong farts…

Small Terrified Yorkie Being Dressed Up With A Tuxedo Jacket

Joseph is dressing up Lucky in a tuxedo. Joseph’s daughter, who lives in Chicago, made the costume.

Lucky got his name because he was abandoned. He was picked up by some “shelter” and was just a couple of days from being “killed” because he was deemed as “un-adoptable”, so Joseph called him Lucky.

Lucky is scared of his own …

Kallie: Vancouver — Downtown Eastside

old female pitbull

Kallie was already an older Pit Bull when she was rescued from a shelter.

She is very polite. She does not provoke people nor dogs. She doesn’t look at anybody in the eyes nor any other animal. She walks around people or other dogs.

She even “sacrificed” herself to eat my treats.

Most Pit Bulls are very high energy and they need a lot of exercise …

Milo Runs & Runs: Vancouver, BC

Lab chasing after the ball

Milo runs and he runs. He prefers chasing balls to anything else, even to its food or treats.

He will skip his meal and any treat to chase a ball. It’s not a specific ball, it’s any ball. Somehow he has no interest in Frisbees or sticks. He’s only interested in balls.

He will run way past the point of exhaustion, so …

Dog on the left: Oggo. Dog on the right: Poggo

The dog on the left is called Oggo and the dog on the right is called Poggo or they are called Occo Pocco.

I’m not sure. Their owner was a small Chinese man with a very strong accent and a very, very soft voice. I asked a couple of times for the names because I couldn’t understand so …

The Eyes: Vancouver, BC

Brindle Pitbull with bright blue eyes

Nobody noticed me, except for this dog. He heard the click from the camera.

He immediately turned his head. I love the piercing eyes.

There must be some Husky in this Pitbull. Historically people disliked and now avoid dogs with blue eyes because they think that it’s a sign of trouble of future health problems, especially in the off-springs.

Actually, it’s not …
