I had the opportunity to tour the New Belgium Brewery in Fort Collins yesterday (a wonderful tour, by the way) and afterwards stumbled upon this little guy downtown amidst a massive, crowded music festival that also happens to be going on this weekend. It got me thinking – I generally feel like there are about four consecutive stages I encounter while photographing dogs. I've attempted to recreate my experience with the following four captioned photos.
In my experience, most of the time is spent in the fourth stage. Anyone have a similar experience? Also, if anyone knows what kind of dog this is, I would love to know. The best my dog-expert friends could come up with was "Bear Dog." Needless to say, I'm fairly sure that's not right.
