Brynn has been such an active and energetic dog through most of her life. Now she is facing health challenges that are limiting her mobility. She has loved camping with us. During two different trips she has enjoyed hiking and exploring. She ahs accompanied us as we hiked up mountains. Now that she can’t get around like she use to it makes us a little sad. But we still wanted to take… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 83. Our cat Paisley has a tendency to have issues with her fur. She has long, thin, slender, delicate seeming fur and it always seems to cause her problems. Periodically she needs to have a trip to the veterinarians for a little trim. Paisley is generally a friendly cat. However, post hair cut she seems to be sulking a little. She is being extra needy. Paisley… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 67. I recently was finally able to capture some good images of our cat Monkey. She usually doesn’t cooperate for photos. After having that recent success I was inspired to try again. For todays photos I thought I would try to capture some more portrait style photographs of our cat Monkey. I really like to use my macro lens for pet portraits, especially at home. That… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 59. I can’t believe that this closes out two straight months I have been doing this project now. I don’t know where this will take me but I am really enjoying the process. Sometimes you can try to make the photo happen.

She is usually pretty cooperative. Doesn’t move around too much. Pretty much stays in place. Today after I had taken several photos she acted like she realized what I was doing. She took notice of… Read More
Earlier this year I took this crazy mutt for a couple of runs. She is a beginning runner. Much like I was not to long ago she struggles to keep up. I really want to run with her more but she has a hard time keeping up. She can barely go 3 miles with me. Normally I would think this is great, but right now all my running goal have me training… Read More
Recently we received the news that everyone with a dog dreads hearing. Your dog has cancer. Our big lovable dog Kira recently started exhibiting some signs of difficulty breathing. It was clear she needed to go to the vet. You hope for the best, while fearing the worst. Maybe it’s just an infection to be cleared up by antibiotics. You refuse to speak the name you fear most as to avoid manifesting… Read More
We were able to spend part of the day Sunday at Fulkerson Winery supporting a local rescue, Rainbow of Hope.
Gunner was such a fun dog. He was a former resident of the Chemung County SPCA back in October of 2016.
I was able to get outside and take a few photographs of our new foster dog Sammy. I also found the below about why we rescue dogs. I didn’t write it and there was no citation to it.
