Made it to the park early for once

Toby, Geoffrey and I made it to the park early for once. I wanted to "beat the crowds" as it were. Just to make the transition easier on Toby and let my boy get his energy out by the water. It's harder to take pictures of the dogs when I'm watching my boy but we are still having fun.

I've noticed some of the regulars back at the park. This is Romeo. It's not the best picture because it doesn't show his great ears. He was being really silly. He was barking at a guy for no real reason. The man was wearing a hat and had his sun glasses on the brim so it looked like he had four eyes. He was also carrying a paper bag so that might have been odd too. Dogs don't like things to be out of place. I know Toby has barked at a man walking with a walking stick. It just didn't make sense to him.

Sheep as art

Okay, so this is off topic but check out this great video. These Aussie's are so smart to get those sheep to do what the people want.

Sorry, I've not been writing about the park lately. I've been photographing at these dog events like Whisker Walk and Bark in the Park. I miss you all but I'll be back soon enough. This weekend is my anniversary so one more week away.

Blind Dog Has Her Own Seeing-Eye Dog

This is another example of how smart dogs are. They know how to even care for other dogs that need help. It doesn't surprise me that a German Shepard would do this. They are so good at caring for others.

Walking for Dogs

Here is another example of someone putting the life of their dog equal to their family. This man is walking from TX to Boston, MA to raise awareness of cancer in dogs. I heard about it on the news today and was really moved by this mans commitment to the memory of his dog who he lost to cancer. He'll be arriving in Boston next weekend so if you're in town, check it out.

Getting ready for Whisker Walk

I'm excited for a big event this weekend. It's a fundraiser called Whiskers Walk and I'll be setting up a booth their for people to get 5x7in portrait prints of their dogs. It should be a lot of fun. I hoping for good weather. Looks a little sketchy right now but as long as it's in the 70's I think it will be good. I just have to bring a lot of extra towels, just in case. If you're in the area, come check it out.
