Category Archives: You’ve Been Spotted

You’ve got to wonder what a dog thinks when she experiences snow for the very first time. It must be as surreal as it is exciting! And maybe a little cold on the paws? These two beauties took it all in stride. I met them this morning when I was taking a walk around my neighbourhood, capturing pictures of the rare and lovely winter scenes around me. Apparently, I wasn’t the only one who wanted to play in the snow today. The friendly couple that was walking Sophie and Joey stopped to chat, and soon I was taking lots of pictures… how could I resist? Aren’t they gorgeous? I was told that Sophie, the older of the two wasn’t sure about Joey when they first met, but when she realized Joey wasn’t going anywhere, and was here to stay, she gave her owners a few bad looks. (I didn’t know Golden Retrievers could look angry!) But Joey soon grew on her, and now she’s as patient and loving as ever… even when Joey wants to play “puppy style”.. rambunctiously and high energy, I’m sure! They are the best of roomies now. These two are my latest discoveries in my “You’ve Been Spotted” series. Who will I stumble upon next?

As the weather gets cooler, I have a feeling I will be posting more images of dogs than humans, simply because dogs have built-in fur coats and their noses don’t turn red! But Sailor sure looks good in red. I love that bandana, and I LOVE that one ear that sticks up like a sail in the salty wind. He loves to play on Island View Beach almost every day… especially when other furry familiar friends pass by. But this day, his nose was working overtime… something must have been in the water, because he kept looking out to sea, and stepping close to the water as though he was sensing something out there. Can you imagine what it must be like to have such an acute sense of smell? Think of all the scents that send a dog into his own distracted oblivion while on a simple walk, and how hard it is to pull them away from whatever it is they are transfixed upon… it must be overwhelming. I wonder what his nose was telling him this day? Actually… I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t want to know. What I do know is, Sailor is an exceptionally beautiful dog. And I’m so glad I had the chance to capture him at play on the beach this mild grey day. He is the latest dog in my “You’ve Been Spotted” series… who will I stumble upon next?

He stole a shoe… he ate a leaf, and then another leaf…. he dug a hole under a log and made himself a little cave… then he chewed some more driftwood and got sand on his nose. He played with a soccer ball almost half his size… then fearlessly played with a dog 20 times his size. I’ll bet he had a good nap when he got home… all that heavy duty playtime must have worn him out! A day in the life of a puppy. I am so happy to have been able to capture this sweet little guy as I begin to build my “you’ve been spotted” series. Each time I discover a furry friend on my travels that I can’t resist photographing, I will be sharing the joy here with you. Who will I find next?
