I little while ago, I started a personal project capturing dogs hanging out around Market Square in downtown Portsmouth, NH. Portsmouth is definitely a “dog friendly” place. All I really had to do is sit outside Breaking New Grounds, sip tea and point my camera.
I discovered this loyal companion comfortably waiting for his human while he was inside Breaking New Grounds getting coffee. I think the dog’s owner is a writer, as he would spend hours pecking on his laptop while the dog napped at his feet.
I noticed this standard poodle standing so regal while people milled about him during an event in downtown Portsmouth.
This looked like it was going to be a confrontation, but it ended peacefully.
She looks a little nervous waiting for her owner to appear outside of Ceres Street Bakery. I later found out that she had been a rescue from Hurricane Katrina and suffered separation anxiety.
Such a cute face staring straight at my lens.
This is what I call “blending into the background.”
This little guy seems perfectly content just sitting in his chair, taking in the sights.
Just hanging out on a warm Sunday afternoon in the square.
I live in New Hampshire, near the coast with my husband and two dogs. My beautiful daughter lives outside of Miami and dreams of traveling the world. I'm at the moment re-inventing myself and when I find out who I am, I'll post it.
