I Hear You . . .

but I cannot see you–and Jack Henry is nothing but nosy when it comes to waiting in the vet’s office.

It was nothing serious-some sniffles and sneezes due to the wet weather and pollen-but when in doubt-fortunately Jack Henry loves his vet and is always happy to pay a visit.

Today’s Dog Quote:

“When the man was disgraced and told to go away, he was allowed to ask all the animals whether any of them would come with him and share his fortunes and his life. There were only two who agreed to come entirely of their own accord, and they were the dog and the cat. And ever since then, those two have been jealous of each other, and each is for ever trying to make man choose which one he likes best. Every man prefers one or the other.”

B/W Hubble

and caught in a Hipstamatic frame to boot.

This week over at Move the Chair I have been experimenting with Hipstamatic which has been annoying, exciting, frustrating and challenging-take your pick. I probably have experienced it all working with this app.

Part of the challenge certainly has been the diverse type of films, lenses and flashes-it can be very overwhelming. But I am glad to have finally tackled it somewhat and am a little more comfortable navigating around.

Here is Master Hubble captured with a daguerreotype film and lens. One image I ran through Snapseed to clean it up a bit more.

A Different Perspective

I had all these titles for this post using the word “paws” as terrible puns in mind, but then decided to keep it simple and let Jack do the talking (or showing).

Thursday Afternoon

and we have an informal pose of sorts with Jack Henry. This was shot using the Polamatic app which I have been working with over at Move the Chair this week. Jack was a bit fussy-it had been a long day starting with a very intense session with the trainer we have been working with, plus lots of activity outside. So even with the promise of treats, he was not in the *mood* as you can see.

Just Thinking

Some might say I have entirely too much time on my hands–that is really not true (really) but when you work for yourself, you do end up with moments  just thinking about stuff . . .

For instance–what might the inner life of a dog look like?

Hubble volunteered to step up and illustrate what he would do with that idea. (And yes, that is a child-size couch he is sitting on)

A Little Dog

with a little  hat and big bowtie-what a way to celebrate the 4th-obedience lessons are really paying off here-

A fun fact about the first president George Washington: the man owned  10 Hounds called Mopsey, Taster, Cloe, Tipler, Forester, Captain, Lady Rover, Vulcan, Sweetlips and Searcher. Whew!

“Ever consider what our dogs must think of us? I mean, here we come back from a grocery store with the most amazing haul, chicken, pork, half a cow. They must think we’re the greatest hunters on earth!”

Meet Twister-a Pharoah Hound

Twister lives in the village of Currituck; he is a retired AKC champion–something he achieved at the ripe old age of 3. He is now 7 and enjoying the high life. I had an opportunity to watch him exercise while I was there. He bounds through tall grasses like it was nothing, easily clearing three to four feet off the ground. These are sight dogs–very focused and very good hunters. The breed is thought to have been used as hunting dogs by Egyptian royalty–whatever their origins, they are an old breed, dating back over 2000 years.

Twister now works as a therapy dog where he visits the elderly. I found him a delight and a very gentle boy. He was a little unsure about having his picture taken, but for just meeting me and the fact there was a lot of activity in the yard, he did quite well.

Today’s Dog Quote:

“When was the last time someone was so overjoyed to see you, so brimming with love and affection that they literally ran to greet you? A dog will do that for you–ten, twenty, thirty times a day.”
