Another Snazzy Dresser

February 5, 2013 Leave a comment

This is Woody a two year old Cocker Spaniel over on the Ridgeway having great fun with the ball flinger.

From afar, I was intrigued by his outfit and found out later that it was a trouser suit by Cosipet. According to the owner, it’s the “Greatest invention ever. Saves all the bathing, knots and muddy floors.”

Wonder if I could get Barney into one of those?

Dog Shaking

February 1, 2013 1 comment

After watching last night’s “The Secret Life of Dogs” on ITV1, I’ve been prompted to post this picture of Barney at Cooden Beach in mid-shake. There’s nothing new in this sort of picture, but it’s very hit and miss trying to photograph it. Apparently, there’s a sort of corkscrew motion going on, starting at the head and working it’s way down the body. Whatever it is, don’t be near it once it starts, or you’re gonna get wet!

Tilly with the fancy coat

January 31, 2013 1 comment

This is Tilly, a greyhound/lurcher that I photographed just before the snow came. Love her stripey, coloured coat.

Hopefully, my new website should be up and running soon. The blog will still feature, so the dogs that I photograph out and about will be posted regularly. The idea is to upload all the pics I’ve shot so far in the past 18 months or so since the blog began and you’ll be able to view these by date and they’ll be tagged with the dog’s name. You’ll also be able to order prints and other framed products a lot more easily, straight from the new website without being transferred to another site.

So, bear with me. The site is nearly ready to go and I’m working my way through boring stuff like domain names and ‘pointing nameservers’. You have to be such a geek to get anywhere these days.

Here’s Newton the Golden Retriever bounding towards Barney this morning near the bomb crater. He’s a very handsome boy.

Macy the Jug

Here’s a camera phone pic of little Macy, a seven month old Jug (Jack Russell/Pug X) outside the Tunbridge Wells Sports Centre. We (as dog owners) were doing the swimming pool-child-pick-up-thing while the dogs were happily checking each other out. Like the dog print Joules wellies!

Sunday afternoon snow dogs

January 21, 2013 Leave a comment

About this time last year, we had snow and I managed to photograph a few dogs on the Common and over at the bomb crater where loads of people were sledging.

One of the dogs I photographed last year was Nelson the Pointer and he was the first dog I came across again yesterday. He’s such a handsome chap and I love his black coat with grey flecks down the front.

I met a couple who had four rescue dogs from GRWE Greyhound Rescue (here’s the link to their Facebook Page Greyhound & Lurcher Rescue in the South East). From left to right they are Poppy and Tully (Whippet Xs), Lenny and Stanley (Lurchers). This charity does great work in rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming abused and abandoned greyhounds and lurchers. These four were such lovely dogs and were being very good considering all the fun that was going on around them. I love the way these jacketed dogs on different coloured leads are all looking out the picture the same way.

Leya is a Spanish Water Dog and I always like seeing breeds that don’t crop up that often. This is a breed of dog developed by shepherds in Spain as a multi-purpose herder. They’re sometimes used as a gundog, as well as an assistant to fishermen.

Others photographed were Hattie, the Border Collie, an unknown Weimeraner and of course a few shots of my Barney who raced around on the slopes dodging the sledgers.

Three Eager Beavers

October 25, 2012 Leave a comment

As Barney and I came back from our walk in the woods yesterday, we met Fern, Ruby and Tigga. They were excited to see Barney, but what these three eager beavers really wanted was to get to the woods.

They could smell it. They were nearly there. Why the hell are these two annoying people chatting when the woods are just around the corner?
