It’s been a while since I’ve written a post, so this week I’m treating you to a BUMPER issue with images of dogs up the wazoo!
The Wild Oats Farmers Market in Sedgefield is among “The Top 10 markets in the world”, right next door is the Mosaic Flea Market and the Scarab Village Arts and Crafts Market. Every Saturday morning there are goods of every description for sale; organic produce, delicious treats, arts and crafts, fresh flowers and second-hand books to mention a few and of course no market would be complete without the ubiquitous busker or two. It is a colourful scene with a cosmopolitan feel, dogs are always welcome and the vibe is festive and fun.
Last Saturday we woke to a beautiful Spring morning, so Mr T and I set off for the market with our good friends Barry and Char. For photographers, all images taken with a Canon 85mm f/1.8 lens on an aperture of f/2.8.
Golden retriever puppies are the cutest, this little guy reminds me of Paddy when he was a youngster.
This faithful spaniel lies patiently waiting for his humans to finish eating breakfast…
Ho hum, so many smells to smell, places to go, sights to see, if only they would hurry up!
This sweet Jack Russell lies next to her human’s stall in the shade, graciously meeting and greeting all potential customers.
Enough to make a dogs eyelids droop…
Barry quenching his thirst with an ice-cold Windhoek Lager.
This beautiful Boerboel is Sugar, a timid rescue pup who had a bad start in life but luckily has found a loving and forever home with her human, Nigel.
Don’t they make a fabulous pair?
Presenting 5 year old Leo, Jack Russell/Dachshund, a bright little boy with a gentle nature.
Oh my gosh, these two Maltese poodles were so bouncy and busy, VERY excited about being at the market!
nervous excited about meeting Sirius, the Great Dane. Luckily Sirius had already shared his human’s breakfast so wasn’t peckish in the least.
I found Rocco the pit bull, languishing at the back of his Dad’s stall, nodding off to sleep.
But he was kind enough to flash me a big smile before I left.
We stopped for a bite at “Die Windpomp Diner”.
This young boxer was extremely interested in the human and her black box.
Some market dogs arrive in style…
Filling up before cruising down the highway.
As I said, Spring is in the air and there are love birds everywhere. Barry & Char smooching it up at the diner.
Decisions, decisions which necklace to buy?
This stylish Labrador appears to love shopping with her human.
There were oodles…
… of poodles.
What a gracious old lady Twinkie is, a pancake loving staffie with a big heart.
My favourite image of the day, is this one of Rocco the pit bull and his human.
Pit bulls get a bad rap but according to the ASPCA
A well-socialized and well-trained pit bull is one of the most delightful, intelligent, and gentle dogs imaginable.”
All my love
