One photo a day challenge: Day 330. Hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving yesterday. Colton here was acting like he spent the day gorging at a feast himself. All he could muster for a photo was this wink. You can even see the movement of the muscles around his eyes as he opened and closed them.
One photo a day challenge: Day 260. We have been fortunate to have more opportunities to get out with our dog Colton lately. The weather has cooperated. Not so hot for this big fluff ball. Now there are a few community events he can attend to help him get used to being out in the public. He needs to get readjusted to public life, just like the rest of us. Today we… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 191. Today I just went out into the yard with my camera and my dogs. I didn’t really have a plan for what exactly I wanted to photograph or how I would go about taking the photographs. I knew I would like to get at least a few photos of our dogs because it had been awhile since I had been outside with them to play… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 150. It’s late. Getting tired. Must be time for bed. Time for dogs to go lie in bed. Going to sleep now. Have a nice night.
One photo a day challenge: Day 77. Comet is such a good dog…..for us. Comet is our long term foster dog through a local rescue. He really is a good boy. However, he has some behavioral challenges. Comet doesn’t get as much love on the socials or in photos because of the way we have to manage his behavior issues. He doesn’t really love most of our other dogs and cats. Even… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 63. Something I always struggle with in my photography is the conflict between trying to photograph something new and returning to the familiar. Should I look for new things to photograph or stick with things that I love? There are so many things I love in life. I always want to photograph these familiar loves. I know what to expect and they bring me peace and… Read More
We recently did something that from the outside probably seemed rather rash to most people. We woke up one day with no immediate plans to get a puppy and the next day we had added a new puppy to our family. While it was sudden and unexpected it was not exactly unplanned. It was less rash from inside our little bubble than it may seem for anyone seeing our updates on social… Read More
If you told me that my adventure would begin with a 6+ hr drive each way to meet two dogs and possibly, just possibly adopt them if all went well, I would never have believed you. But that was what we did and that is how Josie came into our lives. It was one of the best days of my life. Josie fit right into our home, our heart, and our lives…. Read More
About two years ago my wife and I did something I never dreamt we would do. Our affinity for shelter and rescue dogs grew over the years. We volunteered at the local shelter. We fostered dogs and cats. We began adopting dogs from our local shelter and volunteering there. We enjoyed helping our local animals. We also fell deeper and deeper in love with Bernese Mountain Dogs. Then our love of shelter… Read More
About 2 years ago we had to say goodbye to our dog Paxton. The whole situation rocked me in a variety of ways. I wrote a piece about him as I have about many of our dogs after losing them. However, I could not bring myself to go back and edit this piece to make sure it conveyed the message I intended. I was too emotional to even re read the words… Read More
