She’s guarding the car! Kind of.

She’s not too sure about what to do. Am I a threat or not? She’s wondering… Should she do something or not?

She’s looking at me but she’s making sure that she doesn’t look straight at me, in case I decide to attack her. But, at least she’s showing the flag and not …

Chihuahua With Attitude

I don’t know why, but there are many Chihuahuas with attitude problems.

It could be the owners, it could be the genetics, but hospital records show that there are more dog bites from Chihuahuas than from any other breed, and that’s including Pitbulls and Huskies…

This is My Ball — Vancouver, BC

dog carrying his ball

Another Jogging Sausage, aka a Dachshund: Vancouver, BC

Jogging Sausage: Vancouver, BC

Here’s another jogging ‘sausage’, aka a Dachshund. I call the Dachshunds, sausages.

It started years ago when I met this older lady in Victoria. Her ‘sausage’ always wore a plastic sausage bun around the body with the strap, in between the two halves. The strap looked like yellow mustard. Darlee, the ‘sausage’, was always afraid of everything, except when she wore her costume. That sausage …

Guarding the Pickup Truck: Vancouver, BC

This Chihuahua is guarding the pickup truck. Kind of…

He’s alone in the truck, he’s in charge. There’s nobody else to do the job of protecting the truck. He kind of tries: a couple of timid barks and then the final bark was just a whimper.

This Chihuahua was scared of me, but somehow he still he managed to find the …
