DoggiEvent: DOGFEST at Duboce Park

You must go to Dogfest! You must go to Dogfest! The power of Mackey (the 8-year-old Cardigan Welsh corgi mix) compels you!

Huge Black And White Cardigan Welsh Corgi Mix

He’s big! Like ‘German shepherd with no legs’ big. Seriously. I don’t know what he’s mixed with but he’s AWESOME.

Dog of the Day: Boxer Puppy

I ran across this pup while I was walking by a dog grooming parlor in Arizona. I saw him in the window and just had to run in and ask about him. Turns out he’s the dog groomer’s own pup!

There is nothing like a boxer for the puppydog eyes.

Caturday Supplement: Bobby-Cat

I am back from my Arizona excursion, and in time to post a cat from two weeks ago. Meet Bobby, an unusually adventurous kitty. He loves bus rides, likes greeting people and getting petted, and enjoys going for walks. Needless to say, I adored him.

Perhaps a Maine coon mix? I hear they sometimes like going on walks. Certainly not floofy enough or big enough to be a full Maine coon, though.

The two of them seemed really plugged into one another.

Even when the cat got somewhat manhandled, he didn’t show any signs that he cared.

Person Hugging Cat Who Looks Really Happy

This kind of expression on a cat in a place he isn’t used to is really rare.

Dog of the Day: Lou the German Shepherd Siberian Husky Mix

I ran into Lou where I’m visiting, in Phoenix. I haven’t run into a lot of Phoenix dogs this time, but I’ve liked what I’ve seen so far.

German Shepherd Husky Mix With Heterochromia And A Really Happy Expression

He looks like the kind of dog who would leap all over you. I knelt down in front of him and he leaned forward and gave me a very small smooch on the nose, and then just let me pet him. A perfect gentleman.

All of his expressions are goofy.

Dog of the Day: Conor the Irish Setter Poodle Mix

I am off at a data science training in Arizona, but I just have to post Conor. Conor is Autumn’s folks new pup, adopted to be Begley’s calmer and more sensible younger brother. (No, seriously. Begley is a nutbar, and Conor is less of a nutbar.)

I have never seen an Irish doodle before! They are gorgeous.

Irish Setter Poodle Mix

He’s got that doodle ‘muppet’ look to him. Such a humongous nose!

Irish Setter Poodle Mix

Cute little poke-able paw-pads. Poke poke!

Irish Setter Poodle Mixed Breed and Golden Retriever

Yeah, they’re getting along pretty well.

Caturday Supplement: Berkeley Cat Cafe Cat

I’m not sure we have the brightest kitten in the kaboodle here.

It’s not just the eyes… it’s the nose, too.

Dog of National Puppy Day: Teddy the Poodle Puppy

I ran into Teddy just this morning! She’s 16 weeks old, and she adores grass. And loves people. And playing in the grass with people.

She is named after an old movie, Theodora Goes Wild. (And no, it’s not that kind of movie.) And let me tell you, Theodora does indeed go wild.

I did get a chance to play some with the pup, but she spent most of her time running around…

…and rolling around.

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Buddy (10).

Blue Merle Tricolor Collie

Yes, that’s Buddy Collie.

Don’t you want to just bury your face in his neck-ruff?

Dog of the Day: Shetland Sheepdog Puppy

I found a collie dog show in my travels, and one of the women there had Sheltie puppies! SO CUTE.

This dog had the smuggest expressions ever.

And also the most adorable gestures. *paw paw paw*
