When I was down by the pedestrian bridge off of Florence St. the other day, someone’s dog was lying on the ground chewing on a stick. So I took a picture. This is the picture. It would be weird if it weren’t.
Turbo is guest photographer Terri Jo Adams’ dog, who was outstanding in his field (insert rimshot here) in the photo. Terri Jo’s description:
I like to call this “Turbo with Angry Sun watching” ….. on top of that, the sky sorta looks a little tee’d off also. . . dog didn’t notice all that, they’re great at living in the moment … Anyway, I took this Aug 5th – I believe all of the angry-ness stems from the wildfires burning all around the state. I’d be angry too.
Yup, so I would I. Thanks, Terri Jo!
I visited my friend Theresa at her shop, D-‘Tail Pet Grooming on W. Washington St., and I brought along my camera because I would be stupid to pass up all the cute animals. I did, however, forget to bring my flash, which wasn’t very smart of me.
The cat above, the absolutely adorable Milo, is the shop cat. I’m fairly certain Milo runs the whole place, and Theresa works for him. I know I would work for him. Look at that face and tell me you wouldn’t.

During the Santiam SummerFest on Saturday (see also: the car show), the Stayton Police Department held a demonstration of its new narcotics K9, a chocolate lab named Brody.
Brody’s handler, Officer Paul Eves, showed the crowd how Brody does his job, and how he is rewarded with his favorite thing, a tennis ball. That dog loved that tennis ball, and dropped it in front of several people to get them to play with him.

I’ll have more photos from the SummerFest tomorrow.
Some of you know of my camera’s recent trip to the shop to have its shutter problems fixed. I am happy to report it came back home yesterday, and appears to be in full working order. I want to thank all the guest photographers who helped me fill the last two weeks with some awesome photos. I still have two or three yet to post, in fact. But since I took my camera out for a spin yesterday, I figured I’d post one of the photos I took.
Well, four photos, actually. I couldn’t decide on just one. This dog was having the time of his life chasing after a rather large stick in water beside the Jordan Bridge at Pioneer Park. Did you know it’s hard to get a clear photo of a dog splashing around in the water? It is. I gave it my best shot, though.

I popped by to visit with Theresa at her shop, D’-Tail Pet Grooming on the W. Washington St. yesterday, and took some photos while I was there. I would be an idiot to pass up a chance to get photos of adorable dogs. Click on each of the thumbnails below to see them larger. Thanks to Theresa for once again letting me take pictures.
I popped by D’Tail Pet Grooming (visit them on Facebook) near the west end of Washington St. the other day, and took pictures of adorable animals. The cat is Milo, the official shop cat. The rest of the photos are of dogs — some belonging to the owner, Theresa Smith, and the rest belong to clients.
Thanks to Theresa for letting me take pictures at her shop once again.
Guest photographer Jon Goodman is worried:
I am always unnerved when I look out and see my customers car with the driving dog in it. It is so calm and just looks like it’s ready to drive as soon as his owner gets back.
While I understand the concern, Jon, I really wouldn’t worry about it. The dalmatian seems to have a pretty good view over the dash, and there are glasses if it has any trouble seeing. Just pop the seat belt on, and it should be good to go.
