One of the things that I usually try to photograph when I go to Kuching is Adeline’s and Sharon’s pet dog, Cuby. But of course, the only time I can get to photograph him without him rushing after me is when I shoot through the gate separating his play area with the living room.

Not the most ideal of shots with the bar and all but I thought these portraits of him turned out rather well.


Cuby is a golden retriever if you haven’t noticed from the pictures. He is really quite active but I think has mellowed down over the years. They say that the best time to have a golden retriever as a pet is when they are really active. So I guess, it may be a pain to run after him all the time, hoping he won’t chew on another slipper, but these are also the best moments.


So, here is to many more shots of Cuby in the future. Maybe the next time I visit him, I’ll go photograph him in a park or something. Just need to make sure there is ample distance between me and him.
