Dog Picture: Splash Dog – Dock Diving Dogs

Posted in Dog Pictures

Photos by PupandHorse.com With Summer well underway we thought it would be nice to share some fun pictures of dock diving dogs getting wet and wild. The pictures were taken at the 2007 Pet Expo Splash Dog Demonstration in Orange County, California. What is splash dog? A very simple description is that it’s a distance jumping competition. Handlers prep or stage their dogs on either a real dock or, as with these pictures, an on-land man-made contraption with a large pool at the end. Farther is better – it’s all about the jump. Some competitors use classic retriever dummies to throw for their dogs. I’ve also seen more toy-like items thrown. Not surprisingly the retriever breeds are popular, like the Yellow Labrador Retriever shown here, but so are other breeds you’d find in dog athletic events like flying disc...

Dog Picture: Pooch Parade 2008 – Ventura

Posted in Dog Pictures

Photos by PupandHorse.com On July 20, 2008, DogExplorer.com attended the annual Pooch Parade held in Ventura, California, by CARL, the Canine Adoption & Rescue League. Under cool, mostly overcast skies and gentle breezes, hundreds of dogs and their people helped raise money to support CARL’s rescue efforts. The foundation of the event is the dog walk where single participants and “dog packs” of supporters walk over a three mile course in the canine version of walking for a cause. Only this time, with poop bags. There were also contests (with prizes) for best costume, most obedient, best trick, best tail wag, best kisser, largest and smallest dogs.

Additional support for CARL came from some 40 vendors including Natura Pet Products (Innova, EVO, Karma Organics), Flying High...

Dog Picture: Australian Shepherd

Posted in Dog Pictures

Photo by DogExplorer.com’s publisher. This amazing moment was captured when Mr. Bojangles (aka Bobo) joined me, a friend, and her daughter as we walked along Rincon Beach in California. Bobo was one of the smartest dogs I’ve ever seen and he took to the little girl in a moment. They played for quite a while. This picture captures the joy and beauty and adventure of people, nature and dogs. The only thing better than dog pictures and cute photographs of puppies are dogs and puppies themselves. So to celebrate our dog buddies, we are running a regular feature where we publish a single dog picture either shot by one of our readers or produced by DogExplorer.com There are no prizes and it is not a contest. But if you have a picture you think worthy of our front page,...
