Golden Retriever. 10 years old.
Photographed in Shubie Park, Dartmouth.
I was sitting on a bench when this guy sauntered by with a huge stick in his mouth. I heard his mum holler, "Henry, wait up!" He paused to wait for his family, grinning at me from behind the stick. When his mum caught up I had to ask if I could take his portrait. We played tug with the stick for a few moments and then he let me take it from him, so I used it as his modelling reward! The first picture is the look he made when I held the stick over my head for the photo. He wasn't sure what the game was, but he was happy to play along after he figured it out!
