Dogs sniffing each other, nose to nose

Dogs sniffing each other, nose to nose

It’s quite unusual for dogs to meet and immediately go nose to nose. They will usually go around each other, which is the non-threatening way of meeting each other. Then they sniff each other’s butt, just like the white dog is doing.

Going nose to nose is quite usual for cats, but for dogs it’s not as frequent. Adult dogs …

Old Rhodesian Ridgeback Still Running Around and Enjoying it

Bee, is mostly a Rhodesian Ridgeback, but she doesn’t have the ridge. I’m not sure if B. is for a short for something or actually Bee for the colours of bees. Her owners think that she’s not a pure Rhodesian Ridgeback.

She already 11 years old (which is quite old for Rhodesian Ridgebacks) and she still loves to …

Walking Home: she lost her tennis ball

That’s it, they are walking home. There’s nothing else to do, the dog lost her tennis ball.

She was playing somewhere in the bush while carrying her ball and when she came out of the bushes she had no tennis ball. Her owner looked around and couldn’t find it, so now they are walking home. It’s becoming expensive with …

Dog Sniffing Around

I was kneeling in the middle of the pathway, with my camera up, ready to take my photos of this older Boston Terrier mix. He was making sure that he would avoid looking at me but I wasn’t moving. I was still in the middle of the pathway and in the middle of his way. I wasn’t blocking him or taking the whole space and …

dog wondering

Dog wondering what these weird noises are

Dogs do not pretend to be something that they are not. They do not try to control their images. In front of cameras, people become stiff because they concentrate on what they should look on camera. Dogs do not pretend to be something else. They are what they are.

Often dogs are ‘funny’ in what they do and how they do it. This …

Golden Retriever coming to ask me: what do you want?

This Golden Retriever came to ask me what did I want. She came to me, looked at me, waited with the “look”.

She came to see me. I walk and take the photos with my dog on his leash (usually). Since this is a dog park, he was without his leash but staying behind me (for protection). She didn’t …

Golden Retriever Running at Full Speed

This Golden Retriever is going to retrieve some kind of ball with a rope. He’s running at full speed… Normally, Golden Retrievers do not chase like that, they are retrievers. I wonder if he’s a cross?

It’s actually quite rare to see such a big dog, except for Greyhounds, Afghans…, to run so fast.

Usually, Golden Retrievers like running. Golden Retrievers …

Undecided Airedale: West Vancouver, BC

This Airedale couldn’t decide which way to pass me.

I’m on the middle of the pathway, kneeling in the middle, to make her photo. So should she go left? Or should she go right? She couldn’t decide. I didn’t move, I was kneeling in the middle of the pathway. She started to pass me through to the left, stopped then tried …
