Hmmmm . . .

A moment of play with Hubble and Bart the Bunny-not exactly Davy Crockett, I know-

#ALL IN

A very excited Jack Henry whose Clemson Tigers football team snagged the National Championship this year in a nail-biter of a game. (Jack was also busy sending selfies during the game to friends along with his own commentary.) And to celebrate, he has donned his favorite orange bow tie and a Clemson scarf while busily tweeting his support with #ALLIN. And he also is very mindful that a true Clemson Man needs no introduction. (The small poster is a copy of a vintage Clemson Tiger saying.)

A nephew attends Clemson and a close friend also has strong family ties to the school-she generously loaned Jack Henry the snappy scarf.

Happy New Year to all our friends from Little Dogs Laughed-

This year, I thought I would try to mix things up a bit by doing more portrait work of other dogs that I meet (in spite of certain grumblings from Jack Henry and Hubble).

Over the holidays, I had the opportunity to take care of my neighbor’s two dogs. This is Steve, a wise old lab mix with a gentle nature and and an endearing optimism about life. (As in there are always treats somewhere, sometime).

One of the things I most enjoy about watching and photographing dogs is catching them in their contemplative moments. It truly is–at least for me–an invitation to visit their world, if only for a few moments.

High-Style Hubble

Among the loot under the tree for the dogs, was this snappy plaid jacket for Hubble. While not possessing the formidable wardrobe of his brother, Jack Henry (who at last count owns two sweaters, three coats, including a lounging *coat*), Hubble does like to wear sweaters and a coat when needed. He looks pretty snappy, I must say.

The Joys of Christmas

Nice try Jack Henry . . . .

And no  . . . he really did not eat any of the cookies or drink the milk. Jack Henry showed masterful restraint (many of the images showed more drool than others). He was a very good boy and waited until I was done and received apple slices and his own cookie.

Being Hubble

Well-that was a session. After making Hubble come in after catching him tormenting a poor possum, I got him dressed and ready to do for his picture.

As I was looking through the shots, I was struck again by what a funny looking little guy he is. His Christmas collar is too large, he was still overly excited about his missed opportunity with Master Possum and in general presented a kind of bedraggled appearance–like many other little boys I have known. But I like this picture-it really captures for me an essence that is most distinctly Hubble. And as you might expect, as soon as we were done, outside he went again in search of his new *friend.*
