English country meets urban grit. I was really glad when our photographer Joey Armstrong suggested Railtown for Nala’s photos. I knew I wanted something different compared to the usual cutesy puppy-in-a-park photos, and Joey gave us just that.
We started out at Crab Park which is a popular dog park that overlooks the water and mountains. It is on a sketchy side of town, so I was extra careful Nala didn’t pick up anything gross with her mouth. Nala was a little crazy at first so Joey was able to get quite a few funny action shots.
The smell of fish on the docks made Nala run like wild.
Not on her best behaviour here.
A moment of stillness.
After the park, we ventured east and slipped in behind some alleys next to the rail tracks. Textured, coloured walls provided perfect backdrops. I was a little afraid though, of the rickety wooden platform we were all standing on in the featured picture (top first image).

A classic sign of a Rhodesian Ridgeback – her ridge of course! It’s just hair that grows backwards compared to the rest of her body.
And finally, my litttle lion dog begging for treats. A very common pose.
I want to thank Joey again for these wonderful pictures; we had a lot of fun that day! To see more of Joey’s work, visit her Flickr page. She also blogs about yummy food at My Food Obsessions where you can really eat with your eyes.
