1
Pua and Max (the 100 pound puppy) are more than a handfull.
2
That's Max at the top, and Ms. Pua just slipping into the picture.
3
Ms. Roo and a friend.
4
We usually see Ms. Rhya (spelling?) at her house, so running into her on the beach this week was a surprise! She was, though, very well behaved.
5
Ms. Inu is mesmerized by the promise that her ball is going to be thrown.
6
Ms. Moana gets so excited it seems that she might wiggle herself into pieces.
7
At home it's much the same thing, a lot more excitement than a simple dog biscuit would seem to warrant.
8
A multi-generational household. Bomber, left, is the "puppy" while Malama, right, is a honored elder.
9
A begging Bomber.
10
Across the street, Bandit has grown up to be a very happy dog.
11
We hadn't seen these ladies for a while after changing our route to avoid the intimidating dog next door to them. He has since moved, so we visit more frequently.
12
To our surprise, those two recently gained an adopted sibling.
13
These next three share a household just around the corner from us. This is Maleke, the elder.
14
Ms. Pe'a, able to snort a large dog biscuit in a second, apparently without chewing. I'm told that I am one of the few people willing to open the gate and walk in to visit these dogs.
15
And this is Jack, a very intelligent and excitable Australian Blue Heeler.
