A very happy Maremma

His new place is huge. It’s a ranch in the mountains not too far from Quesnel. It’s a little bigger than …

Cat going from being worried to confident

Salem the cat went from being worried to confident

Sometimes the magic happens. I only had 5 seconds to take this photo. As soon as I took the photo, I got pooped on by some crows. On my head, on my jacket… I went a washroom to try to clean myself and immediately went home to have a shower and wash my clothes.

Salem, the cat, went from being worried …

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 …

  3. He doesn’t like it to be held tight in the blanket.
  4. He wants to hide and …

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 …
