Dog friends

Even before I got my new temporary dog friend Ace, I had lots of other dog friends. And as Ace consumes most all of my spare time now, I’m making just a quick post to celebrate some of my other dog friends.

This soulful face belongs to Pete, a Pyrenees. His hobby is barking at anything that moves.

Rigby is a Lab, crossed with some breed that has very short legs (you never know what your dogs will get up to, when one is not looking.)

He also enjoys keeping his home safe by barking at everyone on his street. (Fortunately he lives on a quiet street).

Tucker, a chow-golden retriever mix was photographed in a pile of destruction that he and his sister caused. He enjoys making boxes and toys into small bits.

Tucker’s sister Peaches, looking innocent of destructive tendencies. She is part chow and part something else, obviously her mother got around.

Jake, a pit bull came to visit with his owner, who is one of my oldest friends. (That means we have known each other for a very long time, not that he is old, although if we have known each other for 50 years that does say something about us.) 😉 Jake’s only hobby is going to doggy daycare to romp about.

This is a particularly goofy shot of Winchester, a Lab mix. (He is much more handsome in real life). No known hobbies.

This is Winchester’s cousin Luna, a sort of Lab mix. She was looking askance at Winchester’s antics and thinking about teaching him a lesson.

Mickey is a poodle-ish dog, rescued from the streets. When he was found his hair had not been cut in a very long time. His fur was overgrown and matted. But he now lives in the lap of luxury with M’s cousin and is treated like a prince. His hobby is turning up his nose at home cooked meals.

This is a not very good photo of my great-nephew, Gary Francis S. He loves to chase tennis balls, and will run his short Corgi legs off to retrieve them, if one will only throw them. His hobby is to enthusiastically greet visitors so that they will never want to leave.

Dog friends are often the best sort of friends to have, they are always glad to see one and are easily amused, which is not usually the case with human friends.

One thought on “Dog friends”

  1. One of our neighbors has a corgi–German shepherd mix. Her front feet point out like a ballet dancer in first position (the dog’s, not the neighbor’s — just to be clear).
