Dog of the Day: Yellow Lab

I liked this guy a lot.  He’s older, but he’s got style.  And was very obedient, and calm, and yet cuddly as all get-out.  Not shown: a picture of him attempting to insert his nose into my jacket when I … Continue reading

Dog of the Day: Shih Tzu

We haven’t seen one of these on here before. This one was seen in the window of The Groom Room, a dog groomery and day care on Pacific Avenue near Hyde.  On the assumption that no matter what the breed, … Continue reading

Dog of the Day: Gorgeous

I haven’t the foggiest what this guy is. Could be a Golden with his ears flopping up.  Could be another breed with pointy ears. Could be a mix with foxy ears. Who knows? Who cares? In any case, he’s clearly … Continue reading

Dog of the Day: Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

I took a ‘Which Dog Breed Should You Get’ quiz yesterday, and these guys were in the top twenty.  I don’t really know much about them, except that their ears are ridiculously long and silky-soft. If I had one of … Continue reading
