Well-trained golden retrievers wear helmets and sunglasses while cruising on scooter with owner Handoko Njotokusuma. Ace and Armani cruise through Surabaya, Indonesia, while perched on the handlebars or the pillion of his scooter. Wearing helmets and red- or green-framed sunglasses, the dogs and their owner have become local celebrities – drawing curious stares and stunned looks from passers-by.
Photographer Peter Thorpe has a little tradition of creating Christmas cards, every holiday season, featuring his dogs as different animals in highly structured handmade scenes. He started this tradition 20 years ago with his dog Paddy, and now continues with Raggle. But it seems like this year’s card is going to be the last one for Raggle because she is getting older and weaker every day.
