Yes, I had a bit of fun in Photoshop.

118 Pictures in 2018 - #80. "Arboreal"

I'd been trying to figure how to get this one without resorting to the obvious.

The tree is a Chinese Pistache, taken with my iPhone. Henry, with my Nikon. Photoshop Elements made one out of two.

I've been doing some much needed household "reorganization" (i.e. "What is this and why do we need it???") so I've been scaling back photography to easy shots when I can, unless the topics inspire me.

Alas, I'm now falling behind my self-imposed schedule to complete the 118 Pictures in 2018 group (of which the top photo is one) so I might have to give it priority for a couple weeks until I get caught back up again.

I have tried for the past... 7?... years to complete all challenges with one or more dog in each picture and have failed miserably each time.

This year I set a schedule of 2-3 pictures per week (2, 2, 3, 2, 2, 3...) but fell behind after we lost Zachary. I now have to take 3 a week until the end of September to get caught up. Totally doable, so long as I do it.

As always, click on any image to read more about it.

Happy Birthday Henry!

Happy Birthday Henry! 30/52
Birthday Boy



Dog Blog Post #2498


Eight years ago, today, Henry and his seven brothers (Get it? Henry the Eighth!) and two sisters were welcomed into the world.

His grand entrance went unnoticed by us until we lost our first golden, Beau, quite unexpectedly, three weeks later.

Five weeks after that we brought a bouncing baby Henry home to become Zachary's forever friend.

Henry is as sweet and gentle as can be, wanting nothing more than to be loved (hugged, cuddled, fussed over...)

And Cookies.

Oh, and his fan. The pup has a lot of coat!

Daily Dog Challenge 2458. "Something Special"

118 Pictures in 2018 - #82. Milestone

Our Daily Challenge - July 28, 2018 - "Topless"

The sugar dish that goes with my dishes.

In the 30+ years I've owned it, I'm not sure I've ever used it.

Today it gets to hold a pair of fancy Dog Cookies, and yes, Henry got to eat ONE of them when the shoot was over.

It was the least I could do, as today was Day Spa Day and Henry's Modeling contract stipulates no "posed" shots.

I sure hope I don't hear from Henry's lawyer.

Dog Blog Post #2497


Yes, I was a bad blogger this week. I've been really busy house and yard cleaning, and while the pictures have been getting taken, the blogging... not so much. :(

On the bright side, Hubby just bought me a drive JUST for my pictures! Space, space... look at all that glorious space!
