Today’s post is not about putting a man on the moon. The “space race” I’m talking about is the race to close the space between Penny and her partner when playing tag at the dog beach.And the “Chase Face?” Well those are the faces the partner makes when they realize Penny is winning the space race. Normally I catch maybe one good “chase face” photo per trip, but this week we met the best chase-facer I’ve ever seen. I just had to share some of my favorite shots of Mr. Expressive.

Penny knew she had an enthusiastic partner to dance with

I mean, just look at that face!

As Penny closed in, the faces got even better

This guy could be the lead singer in an all-dog KISS cover band

The faces got a bit more desperate when our pal realized he couldn’t outrun Penny

And by desperate, I mean hilarious

But he clearly enjoyed the romp

In between chase-faces there were plenty of big smiles

As for Penny?

She wore that same hunting-grin she always does when she finds a new best friend to play tag with

I was laughing too hard to catch Mr. Expressive’s real name, but I can only hope our paths cross again. You gotta love a pup with personality!

    Love it. I hope that you’re able to get those pics of penny’s friend to the owner.

    I wonder what Penny would do if Mr. Expressive stopped, turned around and bared those teeth at her.

  7. Marcela says:

    Their faces are adorable:-)

  8. Someone needs to tell that girl to stop chasing the boys!!!!! 😉
    Penny’s smile in the last photo looks like a crocodile! lol
    That other dog might have just met his soulmate 🙂

  9. Genevieve says:

    There is no outrunning Penny! That poor guy looks like his head is about to explode from the excitement!

  10. coastingnz says:

    That is absolutely brilliant! I’m sure Penny can’t wait to meet her new best chasing friend too. Rock on the beach runs and go Penny, go.

  11. A new best “BOY” friend to play with….

  12. Ogee says:

    Some day, a younger version of Penny is going to arrive on the scene and finally out run her…That’s the face I can’t wait to see!

  13. OMD, mom is on the floor, tears rolling down her face with laughter. WOW! that is all we can say.

  14. What GREAT faces! There’s just the right touch of PANIC in there to make it hilarious!

    that is a face having fun

  16. Oh my gosh! Those were just the best action shots ever. What do you shoot those fast trackers with? Either my camera sucks or the camerperson does-everything beyond tortoise speed gets blurred. 😉 Love the close up of the flapping face-and such nice pearly whites, too! His dentist must be very proud.

  17. hahaha thanks for the big smile.

  18. hahaha thanks for the big smile and sharing all their fun with us.
