Dog of the Day: Hunter the Shiba Inu

Hunter (7) was clearly a mean, nasty, vicious guard dog. You can see it in the firm set of his jaw, his squinty glare, his alert ears…

Edit: God I’m horrible. Somehow I forgot to push publish AGAIN.

…that adorable curly tail…

Hunter was one of my favorite kinds of dogs. The kind where his folks say ‘Oh he’s not very friendly, he… oh… he likes you!’

Dog of the Day After Birthday: Karly the Australian Labradoodle

Argh. I forgot to hit ‘post’ yesterday, after I wrote this up and everything. And it was important for me to post Karly yesterday. Why? Because yesterday was Karly’s first birthday!

I am SUCH a bad person.

Karly is SUCH a good dog.

I had a coworker named Karly at Hipmunk, for quite a while. Not spelled quite that way, but close enough.

Of course, Carley didn’t have quite such a magnificent goatee.

My coworkers were quite taken with Karly too.

Dog of the Day: Big Goofy Foofly Floofhound

I don’t have any notes for this pooch, but I think she might be a Bernadoodle.

Look at the paws. I wonder if she was still a puppy? They’re so HUGE!

Caturday-On-Bunday Supplement

I was bad again, and didn’t post any kitties yesterday, so here’s one today.

Black Cat Staring Into Camera

This kitten was up for adoption at the SPCA. Fortunately, she was adopted before Halloween season, because black cats that get adopted during Halloween season tend to come back.

Dog of the Day: English Pointer

Another Wags dog. We haven’t had many English setters at all, so I was delighted to spot such a fine example.

So dignified! Apart from the very slight walleye.

Dog of the Day: Tresska the Rhodesian Ridgeback Puppy

So I’m a little confused. This is the pup of a coworker of mine, and I posted some pictures of her before. But last time I had her name down as Katie, but this time I have her as Tresska. Well, one of those two, I’m sure!

Rhodesian Ridgeback Puppy Lying Down

Yes, she’s just six months old. Tiny, isn’t she?

Such lovely eyes.

Whatever her name is, she’s very popular. And usually quite well-behaved.

Dog of the Day: Polite Greyhound

This pup was hanging out outside Sightglass Coffee, waiting for mom or dad to come back out and greeting everyone who went by very politely, as you can see.

Greyhound Either Play-Bowing Or Stretching

I wonder if greyhounds have to stretch more often than other dogs?

Dog of the Day: Banjo the “60% Unknown By Weight And Volume”

Banjo is 7, and was rescued from the streets of Taiwan when he was just a pup. Some settling must have occurred in shipping, because he has almost no legs! (Or maybe he’s just a corgi mix?) His folks had him DNA tested which said that he had some chow (which I’m not sure about: usually chow mixes even a couple generations back have purple spots on their tongues). But it also said that he was 60% ‘unknown’. I think I’m going to have to go with corgi plus collie, because of the coloration. Could be some golden in there too, but then where does that sable come from?

Corgi cheer, certainly.

And a bit of the corgi ‘tude, too.
