#2/100: The sporting couple.

My parents organize monthly Bobtail-dogwalks. Then we'll go with a big group of people (and dogs ofcourse) to the forest, a park or the beach. The dogs always attract lots of attention, because of their special looks. I first noticed this couple because of their bright colors. I asked them for a photo and they were happy to help me. We talked a little bit about the Old English Sheepdogs (Bobtails). We exchanged email-addresses before we continued our walk. I didn't get their names, and sadly they never mailed me back.

#1/100: Dorien Jonker-Buijs.

I was walking our dog, Balder, in the park near my house this morning. It was incredibly windy and my dog was incredibly energetic. So it was pretty difficult to take photos. I was already on the way back when I saw this lady, Dorien Jonker-Buijs. She asked me if my dog could get along with small puppies. We talked a little bit about her 15-weeks old Okkie. "I walk my dog here almost everyday, before I go to work. It is very important for him that he learns to deal with other dogs. There are a lot of birds, horses, cyclists and people in this park, here he can learn how to socialize." I asked her if I could take a photo of her, and I explained why. She immediately said yes! I love the different shades of red in this photo and I think that this is a great start of the 100-Strangers project!
