Welcome to another photo gallery featuring some of our favorite Kaaawa dogs.
Remember that we live in a cat-oriented household. No dogs here. But we manage to balance our animal world by building relationships with dozens of dogs along our daily walk to the other end of Kaaawa and back. There are a lot of dogs in Kaaawa, and we know quite a few of them, as evidenced by our hefty bills for large Costco dog and small Milk Bones from wherever we can find at least a small discount. Yes, I carry different sizes of dog biscuits to suit the many different sizes of dogs on our walk. I leave home in the morning with an umbrella, a camera, and a freshly stocked back of dog treats in several sizes, all packed into a Powell’s Books bag.
In any case, today’s first photo is Mr. Piko who, at an advanced age, is losing both his hearing and his eyesight. At first, we thought he was blind, but now realize that it depends on the quality of the morning light. Some mornings, I don’t think he can see us walking on the beach from his vantage point on the deck of his house. But this morning, for example, we clearly saw us coming, got excited, and made his way over for a morning treat. On other mornings, even if he can’t really see us, he senses the excitement of his buddies, Murphy and Bella, and gets swept up in it.
Piko is, we’re told, a Cockeranian, adopted from the Humane Society when he was already something like 8 years old. By now, he is quite an elderly doggie.
Yes, there are lots of dogs in this set of photos, taken over the weekend. But there were more, as I forgot the camera in some cases. Oh, well. Next time.
