‘Ear! ‘Ear!

I know, I know–a terrible pun–can I say the dog made me do it?

We may be cutting back to a once a week posting until the end of the year–work is getting a bit intense and if I can do my twice a week posts, I will certainly do so–but just a heads up all the same–thank you all who continue to follow us-

Today’s Dog Quote:

“No one can give anyone else the gift of the idyll; only an animal can do so, because only animals were not expelled from Paradise. The love between dog and man is idyllic. It knows no conflicts, no hair-raising scenes; it knows no development.”
― Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

Our Bad . . .

Well, by Friday afternoon, I realized what had happened–I had completely forgotten to post something for this blog. That gives you an idea of the kind of week it was.

Anyway, today Jack Henry accompanied a friend and me to Greenock Farms where I wanted to take some pictures. He was not real cooperative once we got there–he was interested mainly in bothering the horses and goats. But I did manage to get this shot of him being hyper-vigilant in his search for other dogs to bark out from the car.

Today’s Dog Quote:

Percy and Books
Percy does not like it when I read a book.
He puts his face over the top of it, and moans.
He rolls his eyes, sometimes he sneezes.
The sun is up, he says, and the wind is down.
The tide is out, and the neighbor’s dogs are playing.
But Percy, I say, Ideas! The elegance of language!
The insights, the funniness, the beautiful stories
that rise and fall and turn into strength, or courage.
Books? says Percy. I ate one once, and it was enough. Let’s go.”
― Mary Oliver, Red Bird

Today’s Dog Quote:

The one absolutely unselfish friend that a man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him and the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous is his dog.

And now, for a bit of self-promotion-coming up in December is a collaborative effort with twelve photographers and their mobile phones-

Take 12 Exhibit

Small . . . but Mighty?

I was experimenting with a set-up shot for a still life and Master Hubble decided to add his two cents-he is looking at a fly as I am scolding him for getting in my shot-he is very good about *erasing* the human voice when he wants to-

Today’s Dog Quote:

“Mankind has a mandate to care for the earth and all that is within it, especially the animals, and an animal should never be placed in a position where he needs to be concerned about such things. But this is not that time.”

Today’s Dog Quote:

“Harriet resisted, until Tara pulled out the big move…the combination “lean-against nuzzle, with a slight lick and an adoring glance.” In dog-land the move had a degree of difficulty of nine point seven, and as far as I know, there is no known defense against it.”

Hubble: The ghost was hungry so he decided to make a sandwich . . . 

Bear: Wait a minute! That is SO NOT a part of the story! 

A Heated Discussion

Rabbit: Why? Are you saying a ghost cannot eat a sandwich?

Bear: Oh for heaven’s sakes–are we really going to have this discussion? You are spending too much time with Hubble!

"I Can't See"

“I Can’t See”

 Ghost: I can’t see . . . 



Hubble: Aarrgh . . . ye landlubbers—shuts your traps so I can finish the story . . . 

Bear: Oh Hubble, you are about as much a pirate as I am a . . . 

Wolf: Not again! 



Bear: Can’t you see what he is doing? Why do we keep inviting him? 

Monkey: Well, he keeps showing up-what are we supposed to do? 

Rabbit: Besides he promised us these cool hats—how we can turn him down? 

Ghost: I can’t see . . . 

Rabbit (exasperated): then pull the sheet off!! 

Monkey: Cool hats?! Cool hats?! Does this look like a cool hat to you!!

Rabbit: Should have got here sooner Monkey . . . tough tickles!

Call to Freedom?

“No Hubble-you cannot have your own concert called ‘Free Hubble Now’”

Today’s Dog Quote:

“Rin Tin Tin did not need to be remembered in order to be happy; for him, it was always enough to have that instant when the sun was soft, when the ball was tossed and caught, when the beloved rubber doll was squeaked. Such a moment was complete in itself, pure and sufficient.”
― Susan Orlean
