I have never seen a sunrise as glorious as this one that John Muir photographed. Of course, dogs even make sunrise photos better! This dynamic duo consists of a cute Pug mix as well as a handsome Toller.
From John: “I had the pleasure of photographing these two cuties right at the end of 2016 at Weston Park, Canberra.
Chloe, the stunning Pug / Jack Russell X, is an absolute ball of energy and oozes with character! What Chloe brought in personality, Tango, the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, brought in style (just look at him). Together, they make an extremely cute and entertaining duo.
Once we wrapped up at the boat ramp, we ventured on to Weston Park. Somewhat unexpectedly, Chloe and Tango had the pleasure of meeting their first kangaroos. An unexpected bonus! Despite some keen interest, Chloe and Tango were angels and left the roos to their business.”
From Maelyn: “Chloe is a 6-year-old Jack Russell Terrier x Pug, while her big little brother is Tango, a 4-year-old Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever (Toller for short). Despite Chloe’s size, she’s definitely the boss of the relationship.
Tango and Chloe love chasing each other around the house, wrestling and playing bitey face. When all the fun is over, we’ll often find them napping super cutely together, with Chloe on the bed and Tango on the floor of course!
They love training and will do almost anything for food (you should see how fast Chloe will run at the sound of a rustling chip packet! Both dogs hold titles in obedience and rally obedience, and Tango also competes in agility.”

Chloe’s little smiling face is instant delight….why does she look like trouble? Tango most certainly a glorious creature. Together they are pure comical joy! Thanks for sharing!

N S Duck Tollers are my fave looking dogs- like mini goldens with the prettiest faces but too high energy for me. I also love pugs (like Kilo the Pug), and pug mixes. JRT and pug is actually a brilliant mix potentially. Our vet said maybe Kilo is that because he is a great athlete – sprints and agility. Great pics and looks like such a fun time.
I also love the way Tollers look, but I know that I can’t give one the exercise and enrichment it would need. I’ve always thought that Pugs are cute, but since Theo came into our lives, I am especially partial to Pug mixes.

Such a gorgeous sunset and the inclusion of the dogs makes it even more beautiful.
Kitty Cat Chronicles says
Wow, these photos are amazing! Love the sunset pictures. You can tell these two pups are having a great time too!
The Daily Pip says
The sunset pictures are incredible! Though I think I love the third photo best – I love how the water behind Tango almost doesn’t look real.
Ruth and Layla says
The photographs are just amazing but that sunset one is precious – wow – thank you for sharing them

How did you get Chloe to pose on that tree stump?! AND I cannot believe how amazing that silhouette shot is – and you know from the Pet Photo Challenge that this is an impossible task 🙂 I tried so hard and this picture is stunning!! How?!
