One photo a day challenge: Day 41. Today I decided to get back to one of my favorite subjects, my dogs. I could photograph my dogs all day every day. I love them. They also make great photography subjects for a variety of reasons. They are interesting, funny, and adorable. And most of the time they cooperate for me.

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
A little Puppy Face cuteness on this Saturday evening.
Paxton is enjoying some time outside.
For those of you that don’t know. My wife and I had a dog named Caspian come into our lives at about the middle of 2013. Caspian being part of our lives has been a mixed bag.
