Shy Dog on Board

As we pulled into the Safeway parking lot, I spied the dog in the back of a pickup on the far side. (I'm always on the lookout for "dogs on board.")  "Over there!" I told my husband; he kindly complied by driving around until he could pull the car into the adjoining row of vehicles.  The dog's owner had backed into his parking place, maybe because he had a spare gas tank with nozzle in the back.  Whatever the reason, the dog was in my line of sight.  I chirped at him and he promptly lay down!  Shy dog.  Almost immediately, he stood up again and I aimed my telephoto lens in his direction.   Result:  pretty Border Collie portrait and another image of just how he felt about my intrusion into his world!


"And here's how I feel about you and your camera, Lady!"

As you know I have very strong objections about dogs riding in the backs of trucks, since working at a vet clinic opened my eyes to the dangers. He is a pretty dog tho, and I hope his ride home was safe.

Such a pretty dog and well spotted. I must admit seeing a dog in the back of a truck turns my stomach.

He is a handsome dog. Love the "raspberry" he's giving you. I have a picture of one of our cats doing that. So funny!
