I grew up on a dairy farm and come from a family of animal loving people. I think that explains why I’m the one that is always taking pictures of the cute animals wherever I go, sometimes instead of the gorgeous views or people I’m with. Here is a collection of some (yes, I didn’t think you were patient enough to look through all of them) of the animals I’ve snapped over the past few years.
A baby llama at Machu Picchu, 2007.
This dog wanted to come with us on a boat tour of Chiloe, 2007.
Also on Chiloe, this dog followed us around all day, even crossing on a boat with us to a different island. We named him Flecha.
Donkeys in the Atacama Desert, Northern Chile, 2007.
Some sheep at Concho y Toro Vineyard in Paine, Chile, 2007.
More sheep, this time on the way to Siete Tazas National Park near Curicó, Chile, 2009.
A kitty friend with some wicker in Chimbarongo, Chile, 2009.
Some dogs that joined me for a jog in Lanco, Chile, 2010.
Some work horses pulling a Kunstmann Beer Cart in Valdivia, Chile, 2010
This dog had it tough in Punta Arenas, Chile, 2010
A good guard dog in Pumamarca, Argentina.
These two dogs, in Lota (left) and Valparaíso (right) could be brothers.
