The Dogs of Balfour Bay



The Dogs of Balfour Bay

We got to take a road trip to Canada with Mommy & Daddy on Saturday and Sunday. We rode on two different ferries: the Balfour and the Osprey. While waiting to get on the ferry (on our return trip home) from Balfour Bay to cross over to Kootenay Bay we noticed lots of other dogs, so encouraged our mommy to photograph them. Here are some of the dogs we saw while waiting in line for the ferry to load.

This is Mommy and us in the Jeep!
Here is poor old Daddy and me, BRD.






This little chi-tsu was named Hoochie!






This guy with his tongue out was named Socks.
.
Here I am watching Mommy take photos of all the other pooches.
This Golden just stood in the back of his master's truck the whole time. Wow, what patience!


These guys are Cade and Max and were sooooo excited to see other pooches.

This little Boxer is 4 months old & his folks say he is still potty training. Sound familiar,Hootie?

This Cairn Terrier's name is Willie and he was SO smart. Only 7 months old and he didn't even need to be kept on a leash. He came when his Daddy told him to and everything. Very obedient.

Here Hootie and Daddy and I are waiting in line in our Jeep. We love to go on trips with the folks.

Sure hope you enjoyed the pictures.
Smooches from your pal,
Baby Rocket Dog

Aren't ferries fun? Of course the one we went on didn't allow cars - we went to an island of "golf carts only" - and I was the only dog on the ferry!!!!

What fun!! Our Mom and Dad have never been on a ferry - we know we would like to go on one with them. Nantucket is probably the closest one to us. At one time - before even Mom was born - there was a ferry across New River - Jackson's Ferry. The community still has the name, but there's a nice bridge over the river now.

XOXO
