An Australian Cattle Dog or Queensland Blue Heeler is captured as it leaps into the air in hot pursuit of a Frisbee or flying disc above a lush green grass lawn at Arroyo Verde Dog Park, Ventura, California, November, 2009.

This handsome Heeler is a young male called Baco. He has an amazing ability to leap and seems to accelerate like a rocket as he goes vertical making the photography unusually tricky. He is a rescue and very smart following verbal commands beyond obedience with ease.

We think this dog picture captures the magic of playing in the natural world with your dog. See more pictures of Arroyo Verde Dog Park pack by clicking his picture.

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

There are no prizes and it is not a contest. But if you have a picture you think worthy of our front page, please upload it to the correct album in our dog picture gallery and then send us a note through our contact page. These pictures can be anything dog related, from portraits at rest to action shots and funny moments.
