I had my mind sent to take Hachi to a small garden area in the neighborhood near MCHS. With the dim afternoon light, I needed some way of making his photo’s background interesting. If I could get Hachi to look down at me from the garden’s cinder-block wall, I might be able to get some of the sky in the

background which would be much more interesting than the leafless bushes. And leave it to a lab mix, Hachi now associates my camera with treats which means he wanted to be very close to the camera when I raised it to my eye.
Right in the middle of our garden photo session a gentleman walked up to me with his wife. I introduced him to Hachi and did my best adoption pitch (well maybe Hachi had his elevator pitch down). The gentleman already had adopted a few dogs but did end up giving me $20 to donate to MCHS. Good job Hachi.
I returned Hachi back to the Humane Society and good news, a family was interested in meeting him. Buck was next up. He is labeled as a lab mix but he’s a pretty big lab mix! I was worried at first because Buck has plenty of energy. After a few minutes of walking him I realized that he had received some leash training. Every time he picked up the pace I just had to stop walking and he slowed down.
Buck also doesn’t like the camera. I just made due with the time I had. After a few shots we were headed back to Buck’s kennel. Keep working on your leash training, Buck!
