The Dog that Lives on the Fishing Raft

A couple of years ago, I used to post a series known as The Dog that Lives on the Fishing Raft.

The dog’s name is Dor Dor; but unfortunately he was drowned when he took for a swim and could not get back onto the raft.

Here is a picture showing Dor Dor at sleep ( or is he just pretending to sleep?)

He has got a toy besides him.2735597662_c5553e375f_z

Hope he is enjoying his sleep in Heaven.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreamy (The Dog that Dreams)

The Daily Post’s theme for Weekly Photo Challenge has just been changed.

However, I can’t helping posting this one on Dreamy.855840047_1fc6b73da0_b

This is from the dog that lives on the fishing raft – Dor Dor.

It is not difficult to see that he is enjoying his dreams!


The Dog that Lives on the Fishing Raft: Portrait

If I have to post one single image of Dor Dor, this will be my choice.

This is a very clear image of him taken against the sea as a background.4800797262_c50cbea748_b

I like the smile on his face and the soft colors of the sea.

His eyes tell us that he is happy!

Please enjoy 🙂

The Dog that Lives on the Fishing Raft: Dor Dor and the Cat

I never knew the range of possible relationships between dogs and cats until I read this.

The following is extracted from Wikipedia on the range of their Relationships:

Dogs have a natural instinct to chase small prey that flee.

Most cats will flee from a dog, while others will take actions such as hissing, arching their backs and swiping at the dog.kk

If appropriately socialized, cats and dogs may have relationships that are not antagonistic, and dogs raised with cats may prefer the presence of cats to other dogs. Even cats and dogs that have gotten along together in the same household may revert to aggressive reactions due to external stimuli, illness or play that escalates.293112752_8d0f0a0a5f_o

Here is a photo showing Dor Dor and the cat that also lives on the fishing raft.

Afterall, they don’t seem to be antagonistic!

Some readers asked whether Dor Dor has any friends that are not human.

In fact, his life on the fishing raft can sometimes be quite lonely.

Apart from the toys he has, his only friend is this cat.

Incidentally, this cat looks quite like the black and white toy he used to have close by him when he is sleeping.




The Dog that Lives on the Fishing Raft: In Action

Here are three photos which show Dor Dor in action.

Many of my previous photos showed him more or less stationary.

Dor Dor, in fact, is quite playful.2544946274_e76178d7ee_b

The first one shows him with an apple in his mouth and running.3233468257_4633890879_z

The second one shows he played around with a tennis ball.436424501_f056cac73f_b

The last one shows him having a toy in his mouth.

These are the more active side of Dor Dor.

Hope you like them 🙂
