Meet Guber-Cafe Canine


As soon as the weather gets warmer, Minnesotans move to the outdoors on bicycles, in canoes, hiking, and walking. A favorite pastime is visiting outdoor cafes, and many bring their pets along. Several years ago I posted dogs I saw at the coffee shops and decided to do it again. It's a wonderful conversation starter and the owners LOVE to have their dogs photographed. This dog was friendly, gentle and difficult to photograph because he is a ham and wanted to cozy up to the camera.

  1. Love that profile. Boxers have the most wonderful profile. Super shots, Kate. Great you'll do a series.

  3. He reminds me of somebody!

    I don't know what a ham is when it relates to dogs... I'm going to look up the expression. I learn a lot on blogs. :-)

  4. That's a great shot. My two Aussies are the same way... if there is someone new giving them attention they are all over it.

    Funny thing is though.... they are so sick of me taking their picture.... that if I grab the camera... they leave the room...... anyone else? uber love.

    I love canine shots.... this is no exception. Great photo.

  6. Well you should have a fistful of admirers pretty fast if you do dogs. I think they are wonderful creatures and why we were not modeled after them is a mystery to me. I did do a movie of my grand daughter pushing her doll stroller around with her 20 pound black panther enjoying the ride. That will be out tomorrow on my Brookville Daily Photo blog.

  7. Oh, I really love this photo. When I was a little girl, our family dog was an English Bulldog and it was just the sweetest creature.
