Dogs love the beach and will fetch the ball from the water tirelessly. I never get tired of watching them. Canon G15, 1/2000 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 200.

Let the Sleeping Dog Lie

As the old saying goes, it's best to a let a sleeping dog lie. This is my "granddog" Cinder sleeping off the excitement from a visit by Grammy and Grandpa to his house today. Canon 5D Mark II, 1/10 sec @ f/4.0, ISO 1600.

Meet Crew

- This is "Crew" he is a four month old golden retriever destined to be a guide dog for the blind. We spent yesterday in historic Leesburg Virginia with Crew and his puppy raiser Irene Esch. Crew was wearing his guide dog in training vest while visiting many shops with us and even joined us for lunch in a small restaurant with live music. I was amazed at how focused he was and how good he behaved the entire day. Navigating in tight crowed antique shops and resisting the attention everyone was wanting to give him. He won't begin his official guide dog training until he is at least one year old, but we could tell he's going to make someone a great guide dog. Canon G11, 1/640 sec @ f/4.5, ISO 400.

240 - Two for one day

From 365 Project
Two photos today. The first is my photograph of the fresh vegetables on display at the Highland Park, New Jersey Farmers Market. There was lots of great stuff and we loaded up. Canon G10, 1/320 sec @ f/6.3, ISO 400.

This second photo Cindy took as we were driving up US13 in Delaware this morning. This little dog was riding on his Honda Gold Wing motorcycle with his goggles on. You just don't see this everyday.

207 - Labardor Retreivers

From 365 Project
There are two things Labrador Retrievers love to do, retrieve and be in the water. I caught these two playing hard at Sandbridge Beach today. Dallas returns with the prized tennis ball while Rocky waits to try and take it away. Dallas is an 8 month old American Labrador and Rocky is an 11 month old Chocolate Lab. Their human companions, Kate and Dan, brought them to the beach to burn off that puppy energy. Any Lab owner can appreciate that. Canon 40D, 1/4000 sec @ f/4.0, ISO 400, 200mm focal length. More pictures of the fun here.

111 - Sad Day

From 365 Project
Today's post pays tribute to our cocker spaniel Denny who passed away tonight. He was one of my favorite models and always put up with my camera constantly pointed in his direction. Denny was a rescue dog who quickly won a spot in our hearts when we adopted him five years ago. We spoiled him rotten and he returned unconditional love and loyalty.

79 - Good to be Home

From 365 Project
Our cocker spaniel Denny enjoying his own bed after spending two nights at the Emergency Veterinary Hospital. He had extreme breathing problems Wednesday night and we rushed him to the hospital. He has a diagnosis of congestive heart failure and probable aspiration pneumonia. He was much better after treatment and got to come home tonight. A follow up with the doggy cardiologist is planned for next week. Who knew there were doggy cardiologists?

64 - Doggy E.R.

From 365 Project
This photo represents a dog's perspective on a visit to the Animal Emergency Center tonight. Our cocker spaniel, Denny, had a choking and difficulty breathing event after work today. When his tongue got purple I decided to rush him over to the E.R. By the time we got there, after battling rush hour traffic, he was much better and his breathing was back to normal. They gave him the full work up - X-rays, blood work, etc. and pronounced him OK. We left with his stump of a tail just wagging away and my wallet much lighter.
