Inspired by the Dogscar cartoons by Off the Leash, I thought it would be fun to categorize some of the dogs I’ve been fortunate to feature. Please note this was a last minute idea and although every dog is awesome, I could only choose a few. Many dogs could fit into more than one category, but I tried to keep things simple. As I am getting ready to hit “publish” I realize that I unintentionally excluded a few of my favorites. Please accept my apologies if I missed your favorites!

Who would you have nominated? And could you pick a winner? Should I run a contest for fun and ask people to vote? I’d love to hear what you think.
Alice G Patterson says
OMG this is turned out so cute!! Thanks for including some of my photographs. Definitely would have included Norman and Duncan in the Dyanmic Duo category.
Ali Peterson says
Beautiful. This is a remarkable collection of photographs. All of the photographers must be so honored with the incredible presentation you are offering them. Keep up the great work.
Cathie Berrey-Green says
thanks for including Bella!!
Charlotte Reeves says
What a fantastic idea! I even found some new photographers I’d not seen the work of before through this. I think my fave category would have to be the puppies – cute!
my votes (if you were counting)
#1, #7, #15, #18 &23 tie for best ride, #26, #30, #40, #49, #59, #66 and all the golden oldies tied.
Ha ha, go Pep! She’s got some sweet stunts up her sleeve. I am so obsessed with #30, that is one of my all time favorite pictures. So perfect. That wins everything.
