This is a beautiful border collie friend of Buddy’s. His name is Ben and I recently took some pics of him for his mum to hang on her wall. How handsome is he? Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Cushions, Bags, by clicking the link.

The Happy Terrier

The Happy Terrier

This is Tommy the very happy Australian Terrier. He is my greyhound’s best friend and they look utterly adorable walking together! Tommy is the only one who can stand up to Buddy’s rather domineering play style. I love him! Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Cushions, Bags, Print on Wood by clicking the link.

Come Hither

Come Hither

Pretty tabby cat called Mona. She’s a terrible tease, you’re just as likely to get a scratch as a smooch if you do come hither! Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Cushions, Bags, Print on Wood by clicking the link.

Siamese Face

Siamese Face

As is the case with most siamese cats Tolly had a BIG personality to match his voice and he basically ruled our house. But, naturally, we wouldn’t have had it any other way. Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Cushions, Bags, Print on Wood by clicking the link.

I See You

This may be one of Athens’ cats that does have a home! I love the eye contact. The Plaka, Greece. Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Cushions, Bags, Print on Wood by clicking the link.

Florentine Feline

Florentine Feline

One of the many cats that lived the apartment my friend and I stayed in in Florence. Her name is Babayaga (love it!) and she was a real snuggly-buggly which, as I have since learned, is unusual for a tortoise shell. Here she is surveying her beautiful city from her rooftop.

The freedom of flight! I like the pigeon's backlit wings here. Taken at North Wharf, Melbourne, Australia. Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Cushions, Bags, Print on Wood by clicking the link.

Blissful Sleep

Blissful Sleep

After his romp on the beach Buddy loves nothing better that to sleep for the next 20 or so hours on his warm and squishy bean bag bed. Greyhounds are extremely lazy! Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Cushions, Bags, Print on Wood by clicking the link.

Supermodel

Supermodel

This beautiful swan was such a supermodel. He or she just stayed right there in front of the camera posing for ages. Gorgeous! Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Cushions, Bags, Print on Wood by clicking the link.

Thoughtful

Thoughtful

This is my Buddy’s bestie, a little Australian Terrier called Tommy. He is cheeky and funny and very smart. To see the giant, black greyhound, Buddy and the wee, little terrier, Tommy sniffing and peeing and playing together is utterly adorable.

He Knows

He Knows

Cats just know stuff, don’t you think? Their little eyes just penetrate your soul and they know everything. This little guy belongs to our neighbours and his name is Aardvark. He has an all black brother who I have managed to capture yet but I will. Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Cushions, Bags, Print on Wood by clicking the link.

Gentle Soul

Gentle Soul

This gentle soul is a lovely Golden Retriever x Standard Poodle or “Groodle” girl called Chloe. She is one of Buddy’s friends at the local dog park. Don’t tell the others but she is one of my favourites. She is just so sweet and gentle and loves absolutely nothing more than snuggles.

Gull with Reflections

Seagull bobs on Lake Zurich next to the reflections of boats and buoys. Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Cushions, Bags by clicking the link.

Friendly Fox

Friendly Fox

By far the highlight of my trip to Vienna! I saw this gorgeous fox in the gardens of Schonbrunn Palace. I was beyond excited but stayed calm and quiet and he or she seemed to be completely unbothered by my presence. The local foxes are obviously totally accustomed to silly tourists traipsing all over their land. Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Cushions, Bags, Print on Wood by clicking the link.

Sleepy Swan

Sleepy Swan

Poor swan on Lake Zurich was trying to have a peaceful nap but this really annoying photographer kept taking his/her picture so s/he was forced to just keep one eye open. I did keep it quick and left it to snooze quietly. Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Cushions, Bags, Print on Wood by clicking the link.

Mr Mallard

Mr Mallard

Me and animals again. Mr Mallard’s colouring is just so rich and lovely. It’s certainly not the first time one of these handsome devils had caught my eye. Probably won’t be the last. Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Cushions, Bags, Print on Wood by clicking the link.

Gull Gazing

Gull Gazing

Love seagulls! They are cranky and feisty and, in my opinion, very photogenic. This guy was gazing at something while I was gazing at him. Or her. Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Cushions, Bags, Print on Wood by clicking the link.

You Better Have Chips

You Better Have Chips

Ahh, seagulls again. I didn’t have chips. Just a camera. I hope they didn’t hold it against me for too long. Lake Zurich, Switzerland. Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Cushions, Bags by clicking the link.

Yes? What?

Yes? What?

I do love pigeons. Pigeons and seagulls. They have personalities, slight cranky, demanding ones and I find that endearing. This one is giving me the look from the fountain in the piazza opposite the Pantheon in Rome. Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Cushions, Bags by clicking the link.

Spotted Something

Spotted Something

As always I find cats to photograph in Italy. Can’t help myself. However since their catch, sterilise and release program it’s getting a lot harder to find them in Rome. Not that I am complaining, I’m well pleased to know that there are a lot fewer homeless kitties. Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Cushions, Bags, Print on Wood by clicking the link.

Posing Pigeon

Posing Pigeon

This is that amazing light breaking through the black, stormy clouds in the piazza in front of the Pantheon in Rome again. I am in one of the greatest cities in the world, in front of one of the greatest buildings in the world and I am besotted by pigeons. Plus I thought he looked quite handsome in front of that lovely wall bathed in that lovely light. Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Cushions, Bags, Print on Wood by clicking the link.

Bird, bat or flying nun? This guy seemed to just enjoy floating on the wind with no particular purpose. Taken on the Victoria Harbour Promenade, Docklands, Melbourne, Australia. Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Cushions, Bags, Print on Wood by clicking the link.

Throw the Stick, Throw-the Stick

Throw the Stick, Throw-the Stick

My friend and I down on the river, she trying to paint it and me trying to photograph it, were inundated with dozens of dogs out enjoying the sun and the water. Luckily we both adore animals and enjoyed their joyous frolicking. And it meant I could indulge in photographing one of my favourite subjects – people of the four-legged variety.

The Neighbour

The Neighbour

Taken through a hole in the fence of my friend’s backyard in Nth Coburg, Melbourne, Australia. This lovely sheep was employed to keep the grass down next door and my friend and her kids used to feed her through this tiny hole. Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards by clicking the link.

Spotted at South Werribee beach this guy was having the time of his life playing in the water. Here you see him nipping at the water as it is being flicked at him by his person. Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards by clicking the link.

Tabby Nose

Tabby Nose

The gorgeous brown nose of the tabby cat. Trying out my new macro lens on a moving target called Mona. Not easy! She is a most uncooperative model. Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Cushions, Bags, Print on Wood by clicking the link.

Sleeping Peacefully

Sleeping Peacefully

This is the semi-frozen pond in the Tuileries, Paris. Poor mum froze to death while I happily photographed all the duck and seagulls sometimes swimming in, sometimes walking on the water. I loved watching the ducks use their bills as ice breakers! This guy though, was just having a wee rest. Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards by clicking the link.

Unlike my two other younger pusses this mature siamese gent, Tolly, just completely ignored me when I crawled around the floor sticking a camera in his face. Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Print on Wood by clicking the link.

The alert ears of a lovely old Alstation called Squizzy. He might be getting on in years but he’s still pretty keen. Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Print on Wood by clicking the link.

My girl, Mona. I knew her name had to begin with M because of the way the tabby markings always result in an M shape at the forehead. Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Cushions, Bags, Print on Wood by clicking the link.

Handsom Lad

Handsom Lad

A very handsome rooster on the island of Torcello in the Venetian Lagoon. This guy was looking after his ladies well and they were all co-habiting quite peacefully with the tribe of cats who shared their garden. Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Cushions, Bags by clicking the link.

I Can Wait

I Can Wait

Interestingly, there didn’t seem to be as many cats roaming about Venice as I’d seen on previous visits. As you can see this handsome guy has a fetching blue collar with bell so he obviously has a comfy home to go to when he gets tired of watching the crowd go by. My guess is that’s his own front door he’s sitting in front of and he’s just waiting patiently for his person to let him in. Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Cushions, Bags by clicking the link.

5th Position

5th Position

My siamese, Tolly. He had quite bad arthritis which you can see here in his poor, little bent ankle. The way he positioned his feet when standing reminded me very much of a ballet dancer in 5th position. Buy as Prints, Posters, Cards, Cushions, Bags, Prints on Wood by clicking the link.
