Out for a Ride

I didn’t see this one personally, but someone sent me this photo taken in downtown Vancouver. A woman with a pittie hanging on her lap motored down the street on a motor bike. The pooch looked at ease – apparently it was familiar with this mode of transportation – and its ears flapped in the wind like a frickin’ dog goddess.

On a walk down Main Street on a cool Sunday afternoon, I walked past a couple sitting on a cement barrier that lined a pathway leading into a condo complex. They were clearly waiting for someone. The Spaniel, who was sitting independently up until I walked past, leaned back to press its side against the owner’s back. I love it when this happens.

As a mid afternoon treat on a Sunday, a few of us went Brassneck Brewery for some beers. On our way out, we noticed this dog tied to a post in the front hall of the store. Something about this dog begged for some attention (maybe its eyes and soft, droopy ears), and soon it was surrounded by swooning patrons of the brewery, each taking their turns petting the dog.
