Trophy dogs

Here are a few more of my images from Doggy Day at Denio’s in late April. Nothing will convince me that these dogs do not take this event very seriously — well, most of them, that is! Why else would they be so eager to get a look at their winning trophies, and making sure their beloved masters don’t wind […]

Doggy Day 2022

It’s been a few years since I was last able to attend the annual Doggy Day dachsund races at Denio’s in Roseville. My last time was back in 2017, and the event has been on hiatus for the past two years. This year’s festivities were actually pushed back from their originally scheduled date of March 19 to April 23. But […]

Memory Monday, Week 145

This week I have the last few slides showing some of our pets during 1978 through 1982. Sascha, who was part Siberian husky, came home with us when she was a fluff ball of a puppy with beautiful brown eyes. She spent most of her life outdoors, in our back yard; but she happily shared the property with Hondo, one […]

Memory Monday, Week 144

I’m always delighted to find photos of our various dogs from the 1970s and 1980s. Penny came to us as a tiny puppy from a pet store called Fin, Feather, and Fur in late 1978 or early 1979. I know that she was slightly less than a year old when we took her on our 1979 road trip to Canada. […]

Memory Monday, Week 115

I’ve posted plenty of images from our various trips to the coast (sometimes more than once), but here’s one trip I seem to have overlooked. It dates back to 1993, in the period not long after we had lost our first pitbull, Phoebe. I suspect one reason for this particular trip was to try to console ourselves, not to mention […]

Family bonds

More dog memories… We probably should have seen it coming, but we were still surprised when we wound up with a house full of puppies in July 1995. Gabby was a great mother, but feeding ten very hungry little mouths took a lot out of her; you can see that her coat wasn’t looking too good in this photo: Their […]

Three amigos

I’ve been busy reorganizing my collection of old prints this week, and of course I have a load of photos of our dogs. It’s been 10 years now since we lost Buster, Gabby, and Pinkie (they died within a few months of each other, and I blogged about Buster’s passing in April 2010). I still miss those dogs deeply, but […]
