Boulder is full of animal lovers with roughly one-third of all households in the entire city owning at least one dog. Although Boulder has created several dog laws including a law that doesn’t allow animals on Pearl Street, it’s safe to say that Boulder is one of the most dog-friendly places in all of Colorado.

If you just walk around town and notice how many happy dogs are running around everywhere you’ll see that Boulder’s dogs are friendly and have great personalities. This is exactly what the Faces of Boulder photography team did for a number of days, dog photography, and it led us to some of the cutest faces Boulder has to offer.

 

Getting dogs to cooperate for a picture was sometimes pretty difficult, but other times, like with this husky, it seemed as though Boulder's dogs knew exactly how to pose for the cameras. (Photo: Joseph Wirth)
