During my travels I often meet dogs who feel compelled to escort me off of their property and make sure I'm well on my way before they back off. And then there are those that just want to race the truck for the pure joy of it. These canine athletes are going 30 km per hour or faster in these pictures and I'm lucky to get a couple shots of each dog as the runs are brief (and I have to pay a bit of attention to the road). You can see the puzzled looks on their faces when I slow down, so I don't get too far ahead of them as they then figure their job's complete and they head home ending the photo op. In the second last pick the above ACD and an Akbash were arguing over who should get to chase my butt off their turf, with this guy being the victor of that scuffle. While the last pic shows two dogs getting a head start down their driveway, obsessed with the thrill of the run.
