Wild Horses


After exploring some back roads in the rain, the clouds cleared for a bit to reveal these horses enjoying themselves in the pasture. Beautiful country!

Christmas Puppy Wallpaper Anyone?


Hey everyone, Merry Christmas! Below  I have put a high-resolution version of the photo so you can download it as a wallpaper. I now have it set as my computer wallpaper, phone wallpaper, and my TV wallpaper! I might be a little biased since this is my little guy 🙂  Can’t go wrong with a cuddly doggy in a Santa outfit during Christmas season…enjoy!

Home for the Holidays: Dog Rescue


Last weekend I covered an adoption event being held at the local animal shelter. It was a pretty cool event with a lot of vendors, food trucks, and of course, a lot of animals that wanted a new home. I chose to edit this set in black and white because I wanted all the focus on the dog with no distraction, so you can get a glimpse into his/her personality and see the real emotion residing in these loving animals. I have not yet rescued a dog from a shelter, but you can be assured that I will when I am able.

Being at this event and seeing so many dogs (and other animals, but canines were dominant) that were in such ‘good condition’ with such sweet personalities blew me away. I suppose I have blocked out the reality of animal shelters, but this brought it home to me. These little furballs of joy only want to love and connect, how can they be locked up in a cage with no family to bring smiles to? As you look at these pictures, see yearning in their eyes, you won’t have to look hard. I don’t mean for this post to be a sad one, just to give a glimpse of the beautiful dogs that can use a helping hand. At the end you see a shot of a doggy and her brand new owners, happy day!

My first Poll! Make your voice heard!


Hey everyone! My Portfolio site has just been updated, please check it out! It is a nice consolidation of the images I like most. I especially like the new full screen homepage. Let me know what you think!

This Picture has nothing to do with this post…just love this little guy!
Skippy Portrait

And now for something completely different!


My other passion in life is my dogs. This little guy right here is Skippy. Skippy found out early on that if he acts really cute and begs, he often gets what he wants. I was able to catch him in the act in the video below. He even made it on to a Nickelodeon TV show for this performance!

I don’s get it on video, but Skippy does indeed sneak a lick when I wasn’t looking. Don’t let him fool you, though, he gets a lot of doggy treats every day!!

Enjoy this brief but precious video!

 

Big Bird!


I recently took a trip to Cambria, CA for the weekend, just to get away. While there, amidst relaxing and just taking in the relaxing surroundings, there were these large birds playing in the coastal winds (sorry, I don’t know what kind they were – maybe you can tell me!). They are incredible animals and it was awesome to watch them play in their natural habitat!

Mostly a black and white set, but I liked this color version below and wanted to share that one too.

Beauty sleep can be a profession…


Say hello to Sarah. She is a proper young woman weighing in at a whopping 4.5 pounds. She manages to stay so beautiful because she has mastered the art of beauty sleep. If you ever are fortunate enough to meet her, let me pre-warn you that you may want to bring your nose plugs…because as good as she is at beauty sleep, she is even better at stealthily licking inside one’s nostrils. You have been warned.

 

Happy Saturday!

 

 

 

The 3 Amigos


Say hello to the Three Amigos! The little on in the middle, Sarah, thinks she runs the show, so I let her sit in the middle to make her happy. The one on the left, Skippy, is Sarah’s brother. He is a happy Teddy Bear and will do anything you ask him to because he loves you. The one on the right, Squiggie, is Skippy and Sarah’s cousin. He was visiting this Easter weekend and these three had a great time playing!

I had to snap this shot as a reminder of these little guys since Squiggie had to go home. It isn’t the clearest, I had to hurry because they don’t sit still long. Besides that, I love this picture because these guys are such good boys… and girl 🙂

Here’s to man’s best friend!
