A Rogue's Gallery; Exhibit A

Whether training, boarding or walking, I have ample opportunities to take pictures of the many dogs I come into contact with on a daily basis.
I intend on showing a few pictures from time to time...especially when I am not sure what I am going to blog about for the coming week.
The owners always get a kick out of seeing pictures of their beloved dog.

How many of you have a picture of your dog as wallpaper for your phone or computer?

Snow fashion statements from the French Bulldog contingent.
From left: DJ, Remy, and Baxter.
Notice how Baxter doesn't like sitting on the cold snow...he likes the comfortable life.

This is Dexter, an Olde English Bulldog puppy.
A natural sweet disposition towards people...and bossy-pants towards other dogs

Sir Henry at fat camp. My mission was to keep him a couple weeks and trim his weight.
Look how desperate and hungry he looks.
(He didn't like vegetables as much as his usual bones.)

Dailo on top of his world. What rogue's gallery would be complete w/o me sneaking in a picture of one of my own?

Macabee and Madison. Both dogs rise to the occasion when given more socialization.
The typically sleepy Scotty plays and romps more and the typically anti-social Shiba allows dogs closer to her.

Elevator Risks

Q: What can happen if a leash gets caught in the elevator door?A: Don't try it

Remembering my January posting (4 posts down) of the "Stella" incident where her leash got stuck in the elevator door.
Stella survived because her harness was old and ripped in half.

At long last is the video footage of Stella's incident from the security camera in the elevator.
In this case, we have a happy ending.
Not always so.
Another dog owner informed me that a similar incident happened in her building and the dog died instantly.

Please stay focused when taking elevators with your dog. old harness saves the day
