Dog of the Birthday: Flippy the Chihuahua Dachshund Mix

I just ran into Flippy today, and guess what: it’s his eighth birthday! So everyone say happy birthday to Flippy for me, will you?

Ran into him with a bag full of yummy things. Amazingly, he didn’t even try for them.

Flippy really wanted to play with that Lab, poor pup.

Flippy is very fond of being scratched right exactly there.

Dog of the Day: Husky Puppy

I just discovered that an entire data card full of pictures from my February vacation went un-uploaded until now. This guy was on it.

This is actually a baby stroller… the child was taking a walk, and the pup was taking a rest.

Dog of the Day: Goretex the Pembroke Welsh Corgi

The first corgi from last weekend’s CorgiCon! Goretex is an amazingly adorable 16-year-old girl!

Someone was nearly as happy to be at CorgiCon as I was, and that’s saying something.

Dog of the Day: Japanese Chin Store Dog

I admit, I’m not 100% certain about the breed here: could also be a Pekingese with unusual coloration, or a mix. The ears don’t look quite right, although that could just be because they’ve been ruthlessly trimmed. But I’m going to assume that she’s a Japanese chin, because that makes her my first Japanese chin ever!

I’ve seen her a number of times, chilling in the window of Salon Village, but I don’t think I ever managed a good picture before.

Sunday Switchup: Wise Old… Tree Stump?

Does anyone else see an owl? Anyone? No? Just me?

Well… okay then.

Maybe I should have added a beak.

Dog of the Day: Baobao of the ENORMOUSLY FLUFFY BEHIND

I took a bunch of pictures of Baobao (male, 5, fluffy Welsh Pembroke corgi WITH A TAIL) when I first saw him, over a year ago. And I got so many cute pictures of him that I was paralyzed with indecision. And so it continued, until I ran into him again last week and got a couple more pictures and realized that I could not continue depriving the world of such fabulousness.  So: no hovertext, no

Dog of the Day: Simba the Golden Retriever Corgi Mix

Simba could be a golden/dachshund mix too, but somehow that grin reminds me of a corgi. Anyway, he’s five, and floofy, and adorable. And for some reason I’m just not feeling like captions or hovertext, so enjoy his pictures.

In other news: time caught up with me and I haven’t mentioned it, but CorgiCon is upon us! This Saturday, 10 AM to 2 PM, Ocean Beach near the Cliff House. PREPARE FOR THE CUTENESS!

Double Dog Day: I’m Not Sure

I ran into these two the other day. I’m just not as good at identifying the smaller dogs as I am with the bigger ones. All I know is they’re cute.
