CA highway scene   Leave a comment

Saw the quintessential California highway stereotype last week in San Diego: a blonde in a convertible with her lapdog on her lap. Priceless.

Caught this pug in a pensive mood as it meandered through the house.

That’s how our dog Mario must have felt when looking out of our kitchen window:

Took our dog Mario out for a walk during low tide about an hour after sunset – and we had the entire beach to ourselves!

Goodbye Spruce   13 comments

Yesterday our dear little Sprucie, a 9-year-old German Shepherd and retired guide dog who was with us only 15 months, passed away rather suddenly. I will miss her tail thumping against furniture to express her happiness, the sound of her trotting to the door to see who’s there, the long walks we took together along the beach, and her dopey smile. Here are the last pictures of her. I love you, Spruce!

That’s what this bulldog seemed to say, begging me to throw his toy so he could run after it.

Well, amazing might be a better adjective, but that wouldn’t make for nearly as good a blog title. When it’s cold and monochrome out, the dog becomes a never-tiring subject to practice on:

Welcome Skylark   2 comments

Ok, it didn’t take long before I took our new dog, Skylark, to the beach for a photo session. She’s a 10-year old retired Guide Dog for the Blind from California, who is now getting used to Connecticut weather and the notion that it’s OK to chase bunnies and squirrels. She already took control of the backyard, which she patrols diligently. Soon this sweet and well-mannered German Shepherd will think she owns the whole neighborhood..

Beloved Kearney   5 comments

This is Kearney, a retired Guide Dog for the Blind who had enjoyed her retirement with us for the last 4 1/2 years before passing away last month. This is how I’ll always remember her – slightly leaning from a stroke (which she recovered from almost fully), attentive, and super sweet. And next week, we’ll get a new addition to the family, yet another retired Guide Dog that needs a home, named Skylark (and also a German Shepherd). I’m VERY excited!

Man’s Best Friend   11 comments

Well, at least THIS man’s best friend.  Caught this man and his dog while walking through Brooklyn – both were completely content sitting on the doorstep of their house and pursing their favorite activity – reading and people watching.

Movement, #4   Leave a comment

My dog is always moving. So rather than trying to get her to pose, I thought it best to just capture her movement.
