Cool Chili

Chili the Australian Shepherd lived in the house next to our dog park for many years. I'm sure he thought of the park as his own front yard and of all of us 'visitors' as his friends. Although he and his family eventually moved away, his humans commissioned this image of Chili's joyous romp not only to celebrate his joie de vivre but also to commemorate the time spent in the neighbourhood. They will be missed by all.

White Dog, White Dog

This is Chloe. Although she looks (and is) cute and cuddly she also rules the roost. She keeps her much larger canine sibling in tow and her humans on their toes.Her humans wanted her posing on her favourite chair- the colour choices reflect both her playfulness and her reserve.

I never met Galileo but I know he is missed with much love by many who knew him- even beyond his immediate humans. For many years, Galileo was the Poodle in residence at the Donkey Sanctuary in Guelph Ontario. He was known by hundreds (possibly thousands) and although they've had other dogs at the Sanctuary, Galileo stands out as his human's "dearest companion".
