Tippy Toes


I've featured quite a few dogs among the animals on this blog, but I find and photograph more of them than I can reasonably accommodate here, given the scope of what I want to do with Willits Daily Photo. This gal patiently waited outside a downtown shop, without even being tied up. I envy her long, shapely legs, but it wasn't in my genes. I've posted some more canines that I've collected over the past many months, on my Overflow blog.

Today is an indulgence, and I recommend that dog lovers seek out Jilly's Riviera Dogs blog for a wonderful gallery of pooches she finds in her fabulous corner of the world. Jilly, it should be noted, is a world-class judge at the most prestigious dog shows, and conveys her love and respect for them beautifully. While you're in the area, take a look at her spectacular Daily Photos of Monte Carlo, Monaco and Menton, France.

Another dog-lover who often features her beloved Boz, Petrea of Pasadena gave tribute yesterday to the parallel universe they seem to inhabit, gently beside us.

Is that a small car or a very tall dog? Wow, her legs go on forever.
She looks sweet.

This is gorgeous, E. ANd I agree about Jilly's wonderful blogs. I look forward to her posts every day.

I've never seen such long legs on a dog. she's also living in the moment, so patient.

Is that a greyhound? I think those dogs look so elegant. Something about the long, thin legs I guess.

It's generous of you to mention me, thank you, Elaine. My husband John says dogs like this are the supermodels of the canine world. Boz would find her a challenge and would immediately try to engage her in play.

I like Jilly's blogs, too, especially Menton. You know I'm a dog lover but I'm a sucker for that romantic town and her beautiful photos of it.

Pinto coloring and a semi pointy face, my favorite type. If she/he was my dog, I'd name her Tulip.

I like hot dogs, does that count?
