Gone To The Dogs

I have featured photos of my neighborhood dog walker twice already: Dog Walking 1 and Dog Walking 2. Here is a new photo of the dogs sans the dog walker this time. In fact, he was standing to the right of the photo telling the dogs to sit quietly for this photo shoot. And they all did!! Aren't they the most perfectly behaving dogs you have ever seen.

So were you a nice behaving kid when you were young?

I was behaving but I don't remember being an angel of a child. I was the favourite grandchild and I used the position to my advantage.

These dogs are wonderful. I have three myself. They never sit this obediently I tell you :)

Aww..that's adorable! I wonder what's keeping them all obediently sitting there like that.

Fantastic! Was there a bribe involved? A couple of sausages perhaps?

I am really impressed. He (the dog walker) certainly has the attention of every dog and they have a lot of respect for him or her. Nice photograph. I would bet this is good enough to appear in a magazine or an ad for something. Wow. I am impressed.

AWWWWW Look how good they are!And they are all looking at their walker! So cute!
I think I was quite good but you would have to ask the parents!!!

RE SATC Movie, I have no idea who sung it, well we'll just have to wait for the movie. The 'fella' is now on season 4 and his really getting into it! I loves Charlotte, can't wait for Carrie to stop smoking(again), thinks Miranda and Sam are great and can't stand Big OR AIDEN!!! I thought all men love Aiden?! I think he will warm to big though!

Peter said...

Incredible!!! All the nine sitting down at the same time! (... and 8 of them looking at the walker.)

As a kid I behaved TOO well (still do)!

Jim said...

Me nice? Of course I was (dont ask my sister).

The dogs are a lot better listeners than my dogs. The photo turned out super.

I would like to know his secret:)

I love Olivier's comment! What a fabulous photograph, Ming. I love your dog photos - this one is superb. I've put a link to it from my Riviera Dogs blog - take a look.

What a fantastic photo, and what a cute group of dogs. Love this photo!

Chris said...

Well, by now everyone knows I love dogs of any size and shape. I agree with Fenix. Maybe that's what I'll do for my next job! ;-)

Was I a good kid? YES! I was afraid of the nuns who taught at our school.

Ming the Merciless said...

Wow, everyone on here are GOOD kids!

Where are all the bad ones?!?!?! Are they not online or blogging?

Ackworth Born said...

and all the dogs with one exception is looking at the dog walker awaiting his next command. The exception is probably listening instead.

Sara said...

I doubt that I was a very good kid - I never liked to play outside always wanted to be reading - so my mother would scold me all the time and tell me to go out and play.

I love the dogs...oh, how sweet. I can't believe they are all just sitting there like such good babies. If it were my two - they'd be The Bronx or somewhere before you even snapped the photo!

marley said...

Brilliant photo Ming! Can't believe how well behaved they look. Its lucky they didn't spot a cat or they would have been off on mass!

Mary Hilton said...

Oh my goodness. Those doggies are adorable. Thanks as always for the perfect NYC photos - only the dog walkers in this crazy town can get dogs to behave so well!

Lori said...

Aw!!! This is one of the cutest photos I've seen. Those dogs look so sweet. And they are posing so beautifully. I took a dog walker photo recently, but it isn't nearly as good as this one. This is a classic!!

Sonia said...

They look so adorable and the most perfectly behaving dogs I have ever seen. Love most the black and white at left! So cute!

Ex-Shammickite said...

The dog walker must have had a special treat in his hand I think. Great photo. I can't imagine walking all those dogs at once without getting all tangled up in the leashes. I'd probably end up in a tangled heap in the sidewalk with 9 dogs licking my face!

citygirl15 said...

My dog would never sit still....it's amazing how they all sat there and posed.

Dog walkers make good money in NYC. There are several in my building and they charge $15 a walk.

Your guy's got 9 dogs.....hmmmm.

Southern Heart said...

Wow, what well-behaved and adorable dogs (love the Bully!)! I had to call DH over to see this one, and we don't think our Miss Daisy would do that well, unless there were food involved. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Kitty said...

love it!! I want to give them all hugs for being so good.
they are all adorable!

WendyB said...

Sweet!

tigerfish said...

Awwwww...so cute! You mean he owns all those dogs!? They all seem to be looking at one general direction. :D

GMG said...

Bad boys don't blog... but at least one of the dogs is not paying any attention to the walker... ;))
See that there is still some snow on the ground. Recent?

alice said...

I'm thinking about having a dog (a Parson Terrier) but I am not sure to be so efficient with only one...I'm really impressed!
No, I was not a very nice behaving girl when I was young...I had two older brothers and we have done many many tricks!

Kate said...

He walks them all together?! I am truly impressed!!

choco_mousse said...

Wow, I love this photo so much!

Lynette said...

I am behaving perfectly right now, in honor of these sweeties and their walker. I am some kind of impressed. As for when I was little, yes, I behaved because I believed what I heard in Sunday school about getting to Heaven and avoiding Hell.

Bad boy!

Ann (MobayDP) said...

I wonder what would have happened if a cat happened to stroll by right at that second? lol! :-)

I know that no amount of bribing would have prevented my dogs from chasing that cat! lol.
