The way they sleep: Our dogs sleep like humans.


Out puppies enjoy sleeping with their head on the pillow, nicely tugged in our soft and fluffy feather duvet.

Sometimes they even snore!

And mostly they end up in some funny sleeping positions.


Like when Lola’s cuddle spooning Gigi:


Total puppy bliss! I just want to snuggle in there and be showered in puppy love.

Hutch, the biggest out of our pack of dogs, looks easily clumsy, lumbering along, trying to keep up.

But he always amazes me with his love for swimming.


In the water, everything that makes Hutch look cloddish on land, works to his advantage.

Instead of being heavy and slow, he is buoyant and strong.


No surprise then that Hutch loves the beach.


He can’t wait to get into the water and runs straight to the ocean, checking out the waves:


I only let our dogs play in the swash.

But Hutch decided otherwise and went for a little swim in the calm sea:

Our dogs get super excited when they get into the boot and notice we’re going to the beach!

Gigi, our Miniature Pitbull-Africanis, gets the zoomies pretty much from when she hits the sand.

When the sea is calm I often take our dogs into the shallow surf for a nice wash.

So Gigi gets the water zoomies!

Gigi runs in and out of the swash:

Gigi zooms back and forth, jumping for joy:

Gigi plays with some sea bamboo kelp:

Gigi hops into the small waves:

Gigi simply loves the shallow waters:

Cutie puppy Gigi.

I didn’t even know this was such a common practice that there is a word for it:

Dog Dumping is when you drive somewhere with your dog and dump him by the side of the road.


In America this happens so often, especially in the South, that there is plenty of disturbing video footage.

Like this one, secretly filmed, so we get the full extend of this cruel ordeal:


Because dumping your dog isn’t as easy as it sounds:

First you have to go through your dog being happy and jumping for joy as he thinks you’re going for a walk. Then you have to push back your dog, so he doesn’t follow you back in the car. Maybe a bit of kicking is required. And finally you can drive off, with your dog running beside you not understanding what’s going on, just wanting to be with you.


It was at that point that I must have uttered such an upset sound – I can’t watch such acts of cruelty, I cannot believe any human could do such a barbaric thing – and I whaled: Oh no!

In a flash my dogs were by my side to check what had happened that made me so sad.

All of them showering me in kisses, barking to ask what was going on.

All I could do was embrace them and promise that such horror would never happen to them.


I’m so blessed with my puppies!

How can anyone dump their dog?






During Cape Town’s chilly winter weather, everyone seems to be hibernating.


Also our dogs snuggle up warm under the thick winter duvet.


While it’s fine for dogs to sleep under the duvet with no risk of suffocating, our pups prefer to keep their heads above the blanket.


Puppy Lola even puts her head on a pillow.


So our dogs sleep just like humans:

I love going to the beach with our 4 rescue dogs.


4 dogs is quite a lot and when I take photos, chances are, there’s a dog in there somewhere.


Sometimes I just want to capture the scene, like this picture of Stairs that Sink in the Sands.


The truth is: I go through a lot of puppy photobomb shots before I get to snatch the actual image:

BC x Seattle Humane

We are Bellevue College students partnering with Seattle Humane, an impact non-profit organization, with their mission to find homes for the animals in their shelter that are normally considered "unadoptable." Seattle Humane is unlike any animal shelter. They take in animals no matter the breed, age, or physical condition and hold them for as long as it'll take them to find proper homes for these animals. Their hard work and care is exactly what we need to create a better environment for the animals we love. Please follow our instagram page @bcforhumane for more animals in need of a home.
