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.

β€œOnce you have had a wonderful dog, a life without one, is a life diminished.”

    • I know Annabelle-I have grown up with my dogs most of my life and for me, it would be an emptier one without them-I have found several quotes from Dean Koontz that are wonderful in expressing his feelings about dogs-thanks for visiting!

    • Thank you so much Daal! I have a very soft spot for black labs-one of the first dogs I had as a young adult was a rescue named Joe who was one of the greatest dogs in the world. They are an amazing breed, and Steve is a real treasure-Thanks so much for taking a look and give those beauties of yours a big hug and pat from us-

      • they send enough licks to wash your faces completely free of any possible food crumbs you didn’t even know you had – I believe anything mixed with lab-rador is a winner – a one-of-a-kind love-rador!
