Some days this blog comes very easily to me in terms of what I want to write about. Today is not one of those days.
What I decided to do is to post a couple of pictures of the dogs and write a little bit about them.
Lately I have been finding that some of my favorite photos are of the backs of the dogs, while they are looking at something. In this picture they were in the doorway of the porch looking at a beautiful spring day.
This is one of my all-time favorite pictures. It is of Chet and Sampson when we were hiking at Valley Falls in Vernon, I liked this picture so much that I had it enlarged to an 8 x 10 and I had it printed, mounted and framed. The technique makes it look like the picture was painted instead of photographed. Sampson absolutely adores hiking and when I look at this picture, I see a happy dog.
We have a couple of chipmunks in the yard, they have a little “highway” system, through holes, drainpipes etc. One of their favorite places to hide is under the deck in front of the french doors. One of Delilah’s favorite places to wait for those chipmunks is right in front of the french doors. As soon as she sees one, she loses her mind and rushes to the door, charging through it at full speed, barking and growling. Of course, she is warning the chipmunk that she is coming, but no amount of pep talking can convince her that this isn’t the way to capture this chipmunk. Sometimes I swear that chipmunk knows she is waiting, I can almost see him flipping her the finger before he ducks under the deck.
