4 In Dog

Cedar River Park and the Perfect Shot

Since Kip didn’t get to run much at the park next to Lake Washington, and because he cried through the entire car ride, I gave in and took him to a dog park near home. We hadn’t actually went to this off-leash area before.  Mainly because I had heard that it was muddy and wasn’t rated that high. We found that the far end had a little bit of brush but the entire place had so many rocks on the floor that I was worried about Kip running on the field.  I don’t believe I’ll take him there again. I would rather not have him ruin his paws by running on rocks at full speed.


This little dog jumped over the fence FIVE times while I was there to witness it. He jumped over the fence and ran off and the owner had to go running after him. How big was he? He was just about the same height as Kip (Maybe he’s a she….if so, I’m sorry. You look like a handsome boy pup).


This picture! Oh can I explain with words on how wonderful this picture is? It’s one of those rare shots that you only get once or twice in a lifetime (unless you’re a pro). They just look the same!  They’re bodies are walking in the same posture, same legs forward at the same time. I thought it was hilarious. It’s too bad that the photo itself was overexposed and I had to digitally fix it to actually look somewhat presentable. I’ll have to go back and see if I can fix the original large file and get it printed.

  • TOto is always sniffing butt, I doubt I can get a shot of him walking behind another dog without him wanting to stuck his face in the other dog butt hahaha!

    TOto got his paw hurt a few time, so we made it a point to check his paw after walks. But it is more likely from Texas HEAT. The pavement here get so HOT during summer, it makes their paw so vulnerable.

      I heard that dog’s get so much information from smelling each other’s butt and mouth area! I’m so glad that us humans don’t have to learn about each other that way.

      Hmmm, do you have to have Toto wear shoes to keep his paws from getting hurt in the summer? I think it would be neat if dog’s could wear flip flops haha

  • I used to want a Jack Russell, for the longest time until I did my research about how much exercise they need. The are so adorable, but I know my activity
    Level is not that high. Then I talked to guy who said he had a Jack Russell who ate through a wall. That’s why when I read schnauzers were nicknamed terrier lite, because all they need is a short walk or run in the yard for exercise, and I was all for the breed, lol. I don’t think the last pic is bad at all, try taking pics in a room with no window and all harsh yellow light. There’s only so much photoshop can do for those photos.:)

      I think Jack Russells are adorable and wanted one when I was a kid. My favorite tv show used to be “Wishbone” where the main star was a Jack Russell playing different roles in classic novels.

      The last pic was almost white and I had to layer it on top of each other to make the colors show up. But I totally get the yellow pictures from time to time and I feel like it’s just better to keep them yellow rather than fix the color balance. Bleh.
