Pic du Jour #1: “More Bark, Less Bite”

This shaggy junkyard dog I encountered somewhere in Colorado turned out to be quite a cream puff. Fitting, perhaps, for the broken down ‘flower power’ bugs he’s ‘guarding’.

  1. I love the stately lineup. He was told of the importance of the cars, and matched them. And isn’t that your favorite vehicle of yore the VW?


    1. What a wonderful observation, Barbara, about the “importance of the cars”. Dogs are so loyal and eager to please! And yes, for 30 years I drove 5-6 different VWs, brand new each time. Not sure why, in retrospect. 🙂


  2. Whoa! Great shot! It does look like the big bad wolf of my childhood stories. Met a woman this week who rescues wolf/dog breeds because many of the wolf dog crosses are not able to adapt to living with humans in homes or with other pets. Evidently, some breeders are very successful in breeding lines of dog/wolf crosses, but many simply don’t know what they are doing. Sad to think of so many animals who are not adapted to live in the wild or in homes.


    1. Yes, I met a similar person who owned/operated the Shy Wolf Sanctuary in Naples where I used to live. http://www.shywolfsanctuary.com/ What is it about people and their exotic pets? Animal Planet once had a series on such owners who eventually got seriously mauled and/or killed by their pets who they often insisted wouldn’t hurt them because they “love me.”

      Thanks for visiting and commenting!


      1. Thanks for the site. The wolf rescuer told me that often the dog/wolf mixes are fine until they reach full adulthood at about 2-3 and then can become dangerous. She also said some breeds like Huskies should never be bred with wolves because the “wildness” dominates in their genes. It seems crazy to me to take such a risk. I feel very sorry for the animals.


  3. A viewer wrote to suggest that these cars appear to have been racing cars and that the engine at least on that one is in the FRONT. Wow! I hadn’t noticed that before. Thanks, Bill…
