In 2020, I lost my dear boy Sputnik at 17 years of age. About four months ago, a new dog, Orbit, joined our pack. Gremlin is a Miniature Pinscher. Griswold is a Rat Terrier. Dilly is probably an Italian Greyhound or Basenji mixed with Terrier. Orbit is a Jack Russell Terrier. Those hyperlinked names will take you to more photos of each dog and their stories. This is a brand new page and there will be lots more photos soon.

We live in Ventura, California where these lucky dogs get to run off-leash a couple of times every day at the beach, parks, trails, and school yards. They accompany me on all my roadtrips when I take photos for the main part of this website, I usually take five-week trips every summer and these guys get to explore all kinds of places off-leash.

Every Saturday morning, I treat the dogs to a full-out run at a soccer field chasing a remote control racecar. The car can do about 35 mph on grass. The dogs get completely tuckered out after about 20 minutes of chasing the car. I let them catch it every few minutes so they can thrash the tires in a four-way, tug-of-war. Orbit is only a few months old but has already got the hang of it.
