A Dog's Life Redux

  • Morning Swim



  • Toby Beach Life




  • Buster's Great Balls o' Fire


    Buster lives to round up any and all errant big red rubber balls. This dog groks all the angles. Always ready to round 'em up and herd 'em on out! Yippie yi-yo kiyah!!


    Booty pressed into service from way back in my musher days. Injured paw. Ripped out an entire toenail on a quick cut. Be prepared to bootie your dog up if need be. Remember: No foot, no dog. These must have been from my little piebald bitch, Brandy. She was a small one. Otherwise any remaining booties would have been too large for Buster Blue to use. We had two of these, still brand new condition two decades later, so were able to alternate and keep clean. Vet thought they were pretty sweet. Not sure what materials their modern day counter parts might use. 🐕

    Sure beats sleeping in a tent down that the river and not having any food to eat. Buster rules the roost now but this is a glimpse from earlier days when one of the many ways he enjoyed his newfound security was by snuggling up to "big brother". They'll each be sleeping their separate beds now. Buster likes his space and pretty much always being "on duty" while Toby loves to..... nap. 🐕

    Toby has no worries about being upside down on his toby mortgage. Whatsoever.

  • hey there, say, all... i know i missed seeing a log of dogs, (did not go back all the way yet) ...

    just trying to catch up, when i can...

    here's my patty ann marie... most of these ARE the new camera... (the snow and roses, are not) ...

    but, wow, they new camera, gets better close ups...






    *she is shar-pei, and whippet (full black tongue of shar-pei, and loose skin) ... greyhound feet, and curved spine and hollow belly and chest... odd mixture, but, lots of fun... (might have some lab, too, we are not sure on that) ...

  • Expressive eyes. The second from last is great.

  • @zBrown say, ... awww... how cute... reminded me of a friend's dog, a ways back...

    also, johntp-- you should 'see her in action' with those eyes, ... hahahaha, 🙂

  • @zBrown Cool doggie goggles. Did not use, nor even know they made such items back in my mushing days. But then I also ran a team of Siberian Huskies. Wonder if they have some adaptation to glare? Hmm.....

    Buddy above looks to be perched on a sno-go as well. Modern avalanche rescue tech to the rescue! Rock on! 🐶

    Sweet! TFPU

  • Dog in shades is Kopa. I have a friend who is very active in the Dog World.

    One of her dogs got caught in an apparently legal trap

  • @zBrown Is this public or private lands? Should have been a license tag on it either way identifying the miscreant.

    Leg trapping coyote for fur?? Fucking asshat! Lucky for them it was not one of my dogs. During my bush Alaska days I once spent a winter's night in the willows on the periphery of my dog yard w/my 30-06 after hearing reports of a drunken native abusing my dogs during the wee hours.

    As for the canine victim above, looks like not too terrible damage? I'd be worried about leg and wrists though on a dog that size. Looks like maybe she got "lucky"?

  • thanks @Toby I will get that checked out.
