Dogs at Work

At Rolling Green Nursery, dogs are a familiar sight. The owners have a beautiful Hungarian vizsla that serves as the official office manager. She comes out for romps and runs, meet and greets, then waits patiently at the door to go back to work.

Not every garden center is this open to visits from dogs but folks seem to know that Rolling Green is like a walk in the park for well-behaved dogs on leashes.  I pulled out my smart phone to capture a tiny slice of what I see on a daily basis.

These two labs arrived at the perennial garden area about an hour apart. She was off in the distance when Humphrey, the yellow lab rescue arrived.

Both were friendly and obedient, sitting for portraits. At first Humphrey was all cool when he arrived…. that is, until He spotted Her in the distance. Humphrey was besotted beyond obedience and his people were forced to leave perennial garden and take Humphrey to walk among the annuals. Both owners thought this could be the beginning of a new friendship…. elsewhere…. later.

"Kookie, Kookie, Lend Me Your Comb"Shortly afterwards, Kookie, the West Highland terrier rescue, arrived with her owner… and at lunch, I spotted a dog or two watching from windows of cars while owners dashed in for quick purchases.

This one was leash-less but seemed to know the place. Must be a VIP.  I was too busy to investigate.

Maybe the Cute Award should go to this 6-month old Hungarian puli water dog  named Buda for the city of Budapest. It’s the breed of dog that will mature with beautiful long dreadlocks. If you look closely you can see one of Buda’s eyes.
