the little j.p. dogs

Hans is a Stand Up Guy


About this J.P. Dog:

Super Hans is a 2 or 3 year old rescued Chihuahua mix (maybe mixed with Rat Terrier?) from Tennessee. (He’s named after a character on “Peep Show”, a British sitcom.) The rescue was part of the Pooches and Purrs Cooperative which is a group of shelters and individuals who help foster and find homes for rescued dogs and cats. He was about 1 or 2 when rescued in February 2015. (Continue for 4 more photos…)


Spotted! Sadie, Unstoppable Lady


Arlo and I had the absolute pleasure of running into this determined little love the other day at Peter’s Hill. Sadie is a 16 year old cockapoo. She’s actually a Rozzie dog but her tenacity of spirit and sheer adorability made it so she entered into that rare category of non-JP Dogs who make the cut for the blog. Sadie’s been rolling around on her wheels since two years ago when he legs gave out. Though her human said she’s hard of hearing and her vision is fading, that didn’t stop her from chasing after Arlo. He usually tries to hump other dogs, but with Sadie he just couldn’t figure out how to rig the system! (Continue for 2 more photos…) (more…)

Spotted! Lyle in the Wild


The other day Arlo and I were rounding a corner, looking at all the lovely trees when all of a sudden I noticed a little white puffball in the midst of the greenery. It was Lyle! He was sitting there quietly, also looking at all the lovely trees. We first met Lyle as a puppy when he was out and about, but I didn’t actually know where he lived so it was really fun to see him, out of the blue, in his home territory, and all grown up.

Spotted! Memorial Day Motley Crew


My Memorial Day was quiet and a little blue. Then I stumbled upon these four, and per usual, it was the dogs who turned the day around! My neighbor does some pet-sitting, and had his charges out for a romp in the wet yard. These guys were having a ball! We’ve actually spotted Nell (the Golden Retriever), Tobey (the Papillon), and Lyle (the Westie) before on the blog, but never all in one place, with Langston too!
