Photographing of the Photographer: Vancouver, BC

He’s not taking a photo of his dog. He is taking a small video of me, while I’m making photos of his dog with him in the background.

When I took the photos, I heard him talk on the phone and tell the other person on the phone that there was a guy taking photos of his dog. Then he started making …

The Dignity of an Older Labrador Retriever

This old chocolate Labrador Retriever, (he was 13 or 14 years old and I do not remember his name) wanted somebody to play with him and his toy. It was too difficult for him to move his back legs due to dysplasia and arthritis. The eyes… They make me want to cry.

I like older dogs. Somehow older dogs seem to have “understood …

Jogging with 2 Huskies

Jogging with 2 Huskies

Many people jog on the weekend, especially on the Vancouver Seawall.

Often, I see people jogging with their dog but with two Huskies? Never before.

Actually Huskies are great for jogging, since they love to run in a group. Their only problem is the heat… but this was in the early spring and in the morning of a fairly cloudy day, as you can see from …

Old Greyhound: Vancouver, BC

Old Greyhound

Almost all Greyhounds, in my area, are rescued from US and Mexican racing tracks, this one is no exception. She must have been injured because she had a slight limp.

Once, I tried to adopt a greyhound from the local greyhound rescue. I was denied because I was not good enough! The two ladies that interviewed us where shocked and outraged that I wouldn’t let the dog …

French Bulldog With A Dog Life Jacket

Henry is a French Bulldog. He’s small, short, compact and pretty heavy, for a French Bulldog, at 38 pounds/17 kilos.

With his short legs, a big and a heavy chest, in the water, he would drown. The problem is that Henry loves to swim at the lake, in the sea, or a river… It doesn’t matter to him, he likes …

Pitt Bull Walking By: Vancouver, BC

He was just walking by. There is some pitbull in him so many people were afraid of him. He was so calm and relaxed…

This pitbull is almost all black, except for the couple of white spots.

It’s very difficult to photograph black dogs. By definition a black dog is black. Black is not a colour, black is a lack of colour. This …
