That’s what Suki would have looked like in this image if I didn’t use a fast enough shutter speed. She rarely runs as fast as she can, but one of the few occasions she’ll go full throttle (besides chasing my cousin’s poor rabbit in the backyard), is at the dog park. Suki is FAST. When she really goes flat out, her strides become huge, and all four paws come way off the ground and she surges forward.
She’ll often leap over other dogs much larger than her too, just for the fun of it. It’s quite a sight to see, and really makes me want to find the time to get her into agility training. Every time I see a dog doing agility, I think to myself “boy, Suki would trash that course and not even break a sweat!”.
I was happy to see this photo reach the 2nd page of Flickr’s explore page today. It was also featured on Flickr’s interestingness page!

This is our favorite place to take Suki: the recently renovated dog park on 30th street and Church street here in San Francisco. Look how big it is! This image doesn’t even include a long stretch of run behind me. Suki approves of this park too:
There’s plenty of area for her to run at full speed!
There are also lots of tennis balls for her to play with.
And lots of smells for her to sniff!
Of course, her favorite thing to do is meet new dogs, and there are plenty of very friendly dogs to meet at this dog park!
….Like this guy for instance. Look at that face! He’d drop this slobbery ball on the ground and then dash off to get ready for me to throw it before I even had a chance to pick the ball up. I had to kick the ball since I had my camera in hand.
But if you threw the ball, he’d catch it in mid-air! Wow! This guy could play outfield in the MLB.
See how happy Suki is when she’s at the park?
After releasing a bunch of energy at the park, Suki walks very obediently. We usually take a walk through the neighborhood and hit up a local cafe, where she’ll patiently wait for us as we socialize over coffee:
On a side note, I’ve noticed something sort of strange with how images are displayed on my blog posts here in WordPress. Each of the pictures in this post contains a link that takes you to the image source. The images on this post look like they were stripped of some color and contrast, but if I click on any of them, I see an image with more color and contrast, closer (but still not exact) to what I see in Lightroom 3 beta. Do you see this too? It’s driving me crazy!
