The Dogs Staying at the Summit Lodge in Whistler, BC

We stayed at the Summit Lodge & Spa, in Whistler, BC. It has 81 rooms/suites. When I was there in September (before the new abnormal times of COVID), there were 15 dogs.

This a “pet friendly” hotel. They are not pet-obsessed, no doggy massage… But what should I have done? Leave my dog at home? Then, I can’t really …

How to Stare Politely: Whistler, BC

Dogs do not want to stare at somebody or at another dog. For them, staring is an act of aggression. It’s the same in many Asian cultures. So back to the question, how can a dog look at somebody straight into the eyes without showing any aggression?

Minie’s answer: the blank stare. It’s not just Minie but almost all dogs will …

Patiently waiting for her owner

Most people with dogs in Whistler park their dogs in front of a restaurant or a food place, and go in…

Not with this dog, she’s so well trained that she didn’t move even when I came close with my camera and with my dog in tow. She must have identified a kindred soul in my dog. My dog has the same stance …

Border Collie Waiting Patiently

This photo was taking in Whistler, BC in the middle of the day. Two dogs waiting for their owners to finish eating their lunch at the restaurant.

This Border Collie was waiting patiently for his owner to come back from lunch.

I chose to take the photo of only one dog, but you can see the leash of the second dog. She was starring intently in …

Dog in the snow

My dog, walking around, in the snow

This is my dog, walking around, in the snow in Whistler, BC. His name is Dodoïte (pronounced: Dodo ïte). He’s a furry Basset Hound. He’s basically a Basset Hound with longer legs and in the forest, in the woods, in the mountains he becomes a “real dog”.

Normally, in town (I live in Vancouver, BC), he’s afraid of everything. Every …

Dog being herself

Dog being herself

Whenever I point my camera “into somebody’s face” people become afraid. It’s almost like pointing a weapon at them. They always ask themselves:

  • How do I look?
  • How’s my clothes?
  • I never look good in photos…
  • Why is he taking a photo of me?
  • Is this legal?
  • What he is going to do with these photos?

Dogs don’t care.

  • Dogs do not pretend …

Jackson could be considered still a puppy. 90 pounds and he still have a lot more to grow. One of his owner said that he was 8 month old, the other one said 10 month old. At this point, Jackson eats more than both of his owners combined.

Jackson still hasn’t learned his size. He doesn’t walk with people, he goes to the tree to sniff and his …

Rottie Carrying Her Own Food: Whistler, BC

category Dogs • hashtags Dog Photography, Canada, BC, Whistler • 1 min read

She was a rambunctious puppy (btw, I forgot her name, her owner told me her name but I trusted my memory instead of writing it down and I was wrong).

So she started carrying stuff, food, water bottles… Dogs can only do one thing at a time. When they are working, they can’t do something else like running around… So now, where ever they go, she has to carry …
