Cars, Coffee and Canines
Apparently, there are people in this world who love cars enough to wake up at the crack of dawn every Saturday and hang out in a parking lot. OK, there's more to it than that — there are other like-minded enthusiasts to chat with, and there are really nice cars to stare at. And considering it's at 7 a.m., coffee is usually involved. I'm not a coffee drinker, so when I attended my very first "Cars & Coffee" gathering in Aliso Viejo, California — I will admit — I needed a little pick-me-up to truly pique my interest.
With camera in hand, after a few minutes of blankly staring and aimlessly wandering through rows of really nice cars, I perked up. Holy crap, there are a lot of dogs here! Like any normal person, whenever I saw a dog, I snapped a photo. Fortunately, I soon remembered that dogs are also called "canines," and there's my story angle. Rule of thumb: Alliteration always legitimizes a mediocre story angle. So "Cars, Coffee and Canines" it is!
With that said, here are nine photos of cars and canines that will make you go "oooh" and "awww":
