Posted in Dog Pictures

A pair of Golden Retriever puppies play at the Arroyo Verde Dog Park in Ventura, California. In the lead is a beautiful 8 month old Golden Retriever male. Close behind is a much younger Golden Retriever puppy only weeks old. Golden Retrievers are always very popular dogs. The American Kennel Club (AKC) says they are one of the most popular breeds they register. In 2009 they were ranked number four in total registrations behind Labrador Retrievers, German Shepherd Dogs and Yorkshire Terriers. They held the same rank in 2008 but were number two in 2004 and 1999.

Clumber Spaniel Picture

Posted in Dog Pictures

A handsome Clumber Spaniel dog ambles along at the Arroyo Verde Dog Park in Ventura, Californa, on a cool, crisp November morning. The American Kennel Club (AKC) says the Clumber Spaniel is one of the original nine breeds they registered. While not as tall or quick as other spaniel breeds, the Clumber is known for its endurance and ability to do its sporting dog job all day long. It seems the majority of folks think the Clumber Spaniel originated in France during the eighteenth century and derived from the Alpine Spaniel and perhaps the Basset Hound. Make no mistake about it, the Clumber is in every sense a sporting dog despite its regal bearing. Photo by PupandHorse.com That quiet dignity allows the Clumber to hunt in deep cover and approach the game quite close. The AKC says the Clumber...

Posted in Dog Pictures

The Splash Dogs were in Irvine, California, over the weekend, taking part in the first ever Pet-A-Palooza event. Among the splash dog pack were the likes of tiny in size but big in spirit Hotrod, a cute dock diving Doxie. From the competition we viewed on Saturday, 16 October, 2010, Hotrod was the smallest dog in the water. While he did not jump very far he did seem to be having a great time. Dog Photography by PupandHorse.com Unsurprisingly Labrador Retrievers were well represented along with a few examples of Shepherd breeds, a Golden retriever, Australian Shepherd, Border Collie, Pit Bulls and some mixed breed mutts if I heard correctly. Click the picture of Hotrod to see the rest of our Splash Dog pictures and please also upload your own, we’d love to see them. You can discuss the...
