Summer is settling in to our mountain town of Asheville. Nights are still cool but the days warm quickly and even the elevation of Asheville can’t keep that east coast humidity at bay. No matter the weather, the long holiday weekend gave everyone an extra day to get out with their canine companions.
The dog park at the lovely French Broad River Park was no exception. As always, an interesting cast of characters, all with playful attitudes and appropriate dog park manners.
We met Leo, the Goldendoodle, not yet 2 years old and in his second day in his newest home. We wish him much happiness with his wonderful new humans!
There was Piper, the pit-mix, born with a deformed foot, but shhhhh… don’t tell him because he hasn’t noticed!!
super-cute, and somewhat “active” Russell, named after Russell Wilson,
his human’s favorite football player, kept us entertained with frisbee
Two delightful basset hounds, Malakai and Rosie,
challenged everyone to look a basset square in the face and not smile -
We also met Ed and Dukie - a delightful pair. Dukie’s human has never gotten a good image of him. I hope she likes this one!
To say I enjoy working on this project is an understatement. Watching dogs, photographing dogs, talking to dog humans…. doesn’t get much better than that!
