Furry and Friendly

Filed under: Animals, Jockey Lot — lessie @ 6:12 am

Two things attracted my attention to this scene. One, the little girl petting the Lab. Isn’t she cute? And I love to see children interacting with animals. Secondly, the Sheltie…? I’m guessing she is a Shetland Shepdog and not a Collie. (I’m not the best dog detector. 🙂 ) Hope this pair has lots of fun together for years to come. Jockey Lot, from the archives.

Puppy Eyes

I’m reaching into the archives with this one. A snap from the Jockey Lot one Saturday morning. I love this puppy — I’m guessing a ball would be her treasure.

I love this pair — for so many reasons. Hope it makes you smile, too. Anderson Jockey Lot.

Ageless Combination

Guns and dogs. A combo since the beginning, I imagine. But perhaps not always Yorkies and guns. 🙂 Jockey Lot, one Saturday not long ago.

The above guy is a treasure — the kind you might find at the Jockey Lot. I don’t expect to see him the next time I go: he was moving through, on his way north. I really enjoyed talking to him and viewing his paintings. The flowers, chickens and people were rich and vibrant — like Mr. Joseph, himself.

New Little One

I don’t plan to ever go down the Jockey Lot’s “puppy row” again. But if you happen to be near the entrance (I use “entrance” loosely) you can see all kinds of little pups and their proud new owners. This little Boxer was insulated well against the cold.

Cute Little Mama

Isn’t she precious? She was all bundled up against the cold at the Jockey Lot. The boy to the right has her arm to make sure she doesn’t fall off. Her proud papa looked on. Pink truly is a little girl’s color.

Not Just a Have To

This photo gives a hint of how cold it’s been lately, huh? Collard greens from a home farm. Yum. The gentleman really had a nice smile, too. His friend called over teasing, “He’ll break your camera!” Before April taught me to like these greens, I would have thought the veggie itself could have broken the camera. Fortunately, April can cook ’em good. Otherwise, they are pretty bitter. So much so that most eaters season them with vinegar. And lots of ham. 🙂 Saturday at the Jockey Lot.

What’s your guess?

I could no way identify this little ball of fur that I saw Saturday at the Jockey Lot.  He looks like a wolf or an exotic Asian breed to me. My friend April shook her head and said with no pause to think, “He’s definitely a Pom.” And after that challenge, I just had to ask the proud new owners. Sure enough. He is a baby Pomeranian, a birthday gift for the man of house. 🙂

Fierce Protector

Saturday I saw oodles upon oodles of dogs at the Jockey Lot. This is perhaps my favorite shot. I initially saw the Min Pin looking out of his owner’s jacket in a relaxed, cozy pose, and I immediately asked if I could take the pic. Within those few seconds, the little protector spied my friend’s Boxer walking by and the shot was lost: the toy dog was alert and focused only on the much larger canine. Still an endearing photo though. I can’t help but think that such a young fellow who holds a fierce little dog so carefully would make a good father and friend.
