This week’s photo is of a friend’s dog, named Bobbie. I love — but LOVE — how Bobbie’s standing with his front paws in the cupholders! (Our friends are super-conscientious people, so I have no doubt that this is not how Bobbie actually travels. Surely, just out of the picture, is a booster seat with a harness for safety….)
I also love Bobbie’s story. Our friends met him at a shelter, where they’d gone to rescue a senior Miniature Schnauzer (named Jack). The lady of the family mentioned to the shelter folks that she really wanted a “a little white froo froo dog,” though she realized that she was about to go home with Jack. It turns out that Jack’s cage-mate, a nearly-starved scrap of a dog, would normally be white except that he’d been shaved bald to get rid of his horrid mats — and that was Bobbie, who’s now four pounds heavier, and a perfect white fluff-ball. Jack spent the rest of his life with them, and Bobbie is still going strong.
Please send me links to your favorite dog travel photos! They’ll get listed below, for everyone to click on and view. Here’s how it works:
- Every Friday, I’ll put up a post like this one, sometime during the morning (Pacific time).
- If you have a blog or a website, post a dog travel photo on your site on Friday and link back here to the current week’s “Photo Friday” post so that your readers can see other great dog travel photos. Please take a moment to make sure that you are linking directly to your photo post instead of your homepage.
- If you don’t have a blog or a website, simply post your photo to Flickr (or Facebook, Twitpic, etc.).
- Using the inlinkz button below, paste in the link to your photo or your blog post. That way, Dog Jaunt will link back to you. Please include a few words in the “Name” box describing where you took the photo (in this case, “Name” refers to the name of your photo, not your name!).
