Animals and pets
March 25th, 1977 — A large rabbit in the driveway of Fran Dowie’s house in Richmond. The bunny was to be shipped to Toronto for display in a hotel.
January 7th, 1977 — Morris, the cat, drinking from a water fountain in front of the Sports Tea Room near the Stanley Park tennis courts. Morris lived with the owners of the tea room.
Circa 1980’s — Gladys in one of her favourite places to sleep, the bathroom sink.
July 21st, 2017 — Is the bird on the cow’s back to eat the flies or is the cow just a convenient perch? Seen during a walk around Vesuvius Bay on Salt Spring Island.
June 28th, 2006 — Dog catching a thrown ball in Duck Creek Park on Salt Spring Island.
September 2015 — Back in September I came across this woman playing with and I assume also feeding pigeons on Granville Street across from The Bay. Today there was a man in almost the same location doing much the same. Both were surrounded by dozens of birds until a noise frightened them away.
October 4th, 2015 — A grey whale came very close to the shore of Vanier Park in English Bay this afternoon. Lots of boats stood by to watch including these two people on paddle boards.
September 16th, 2015 — This empty lot on Larch Street at 36th Avenue in Vancouver is littered with hundreds of aqua and black coloured dog poop bags. They’re kind of hard to see but if you click on the picture a larger image will appear and allow closer inspection. I’m not sure why dog owners feel they have a right to take their dogs for a walk so they can poop on property other than their own but maybe I’ve got it all wrong. Maybe it’s just the neighbourhood showing their displeasure towards a speculator who demolished a perfectly good house and then left the lot empty for years waiting for land prices to skyrocket before flipping it on to someone new.
