Dog Day Afternoon (Wollaston Beach, Quincy, MA)

Date Visited: April 21, 2016

The beach, dogs and summer-like weather.  Who could ask for more?  Not me.  Usually, I do most of my photography and trips during the weekend.  But, with unusually high temperatures for this time of the year (60’s and low 70’s) and later sunsets, I decided to head to the local beach in the hopes of photographing some cute dogs.  I wasn’t disappointed.  There are so many distractions at the beach, especially for our furry friends.  But, they all posed so well and made my job easy.


I met Tooko, 4 years old, in the parking lot.  Tooko was a barker, but a friendly barker.  His bark was much worse than his bite (he really doesn’t bite).  But, he sure does likes to play.  We played for a while and I continued on the way to the beach.


Pedro is a 3 year old boxer.  Loved his markings.


Chuckles (on the left), that is the name of the dog not the man – at least I hope it is, is am 11 year old Chihuahua.  Buddy is a 7 year old Cocker Spaniel.  They were a little camera shy but I still thought they were cute dogs.


Marley is an 8 year old Beagle.  Her guardians also think she might have some fox hound in her.  I have always been a sucker for Beagles!  So, I had to get her photo.


Penny (short for Penelope) is an 8 month Corgi and Australian Sheepdog.  As if on command, Penny lied down on the sand and struck a pose.  Her markings were very striking.  You go, Penny!


Kayser is a 4 year old German Shepherd and a Massachusetts native. The color of his coat and his sharp features caught my eye.  He clocks in at 110 lbs.


Annie is a 3 year old Shepherd Husky.  Her sibling is Oakley.  Get it…Annie Oakley.  Annie is from Tennessee.  She’s the only ten I see in the photo!  Love the one ear up and one ear down pose and she looked very pretty against the rising sunset.


Tiger is 3 years old who loves his treats!

About New England Nomad

Hi I'm Wayne. Welcome to my blog. I am a true New Englander through and through. I love everything about New England. I especially love discovering new places in New England and sharing my experiences with everyone. I tend to focus on the more unique and lesser known places and things in New England on my blog. Oh yeah, and I love dogs. I always try to include at least one dog in each of my blog posts. I discovered my love of photography a couple of years ago. I know, I got a late start. Now, I photograph anything that seems out of the ordinary, interesting, beautiful and/or unique. And I have noticed how every person, place or thing I photograph has a story behind it or him or her. I don't just photograph things or people or animals. I try to get their background, history or as much information as possible to give the subject more context and meaning. It's interesting how one simple photograph can evoke so much. I am currently using a Nikon D3200 "beginner's camera." Even though there are better cameras on the market, and I will upgrade some time, I love how it functions (usually) and it has served me well. The great thing about my blog is you don't have to be from New England, or even like New England to like my blog (although I've never met anyone who doesn't). All you have to like is to see and read about new or interesting places and things. Hopefully, you'll join me on my many adventures in New England! View all posts by New England Nomad
