Sit. Stay.

I am not sure what all was going on today-but everyone seemed to be in a *mood.* 

Today’s Dog Quote:

“By standard intelligence texts, the dogs have failed at the puzzle. I believe, by contrast that they have succeeded magnificently. They have applied a novel tool to the task. We are that tool. Dogs have learned this–and they see us as fine general-purpose tools, too: useful for protection, acquiring food, providing companionship. We solve the puzzles of closed doors and empty water dishes. In the folk psychology of dogs, we humans are brilliant enough to extract hopelessly tangled leashes from around trees; we can conjure up an endless bounty of foodstuffs and things to chew. How savvy we are in dogs’ eyes! It’s a clever strategy to turn to us after all. The question of the cognitive abilities of dogs is thereby transformed; dogs are terrific at using humans to solve problems, but not as good at solving problems when we’re not around.”

  1. Meg, I love the fact that you keep trying out new techniques. There are so many possibilities! The effects you’ve used here suits this image so well. An excellent portrait. And that look on Jack Henry’s face- love it!

    • Thank you so much Uday for your encouraging words-I so appreciate it–and that Jack Henry-he knows when to pull his best out-up until this shot, he was licking and scratching and looking everywhere but the camera-and then voila! Jack Henry extraordinaire!

  2. A fantastic expression. Who says something like animals don’t have souls? Just have a look at this picture. A guess Jack Henry is special nevertheless – as you point out in the previous comment. Anyway the photo is wonderfully processed as always.

  3. Going back through your blog: I still love the image–and I really love the quote, to which I had earlier paid far too little attention.
