Stay, boy!


He just watched me. I just watched him (except for taking this photo). And, I could smell his breath from where I walked by—in the street, not on the sidewalk. (Ick.)

Two rain showers today, and the second one’s going on now. A side benefit is it didn’t get into the 90s today!

I don’t know dogs, but I think this is a boxer. Interesting history of the boxer breed; they’re a mastiff variant that can be traced back to Tibet in 1121 BC, if WikiPee is correct.

    Bad breath or not, he’s a beautiful dog! I’d have been a little nervous too though.

    I was! That’s why I passed him in the street and not along the sidewalk. And didn’t look at him. I think he must have had an electric collar or something. But maybe not!

    Those electric fences make me nervous. There used to be a vicious dog on my route that got *out* of its fence. Of course, I’m not afraid of most dogs…

    Personally, I assume that every dog is a biter. Perhaps that’s unfair, but it works for me!

  5. kayak woman says:

    I agree with that but I think that most often, it is the dog owner’s fault for not training/socializing the dog. I like pets but there is way too much emphasis on them these days.
