Man and his Best Friend Look Right

You could write a caption for this photo. It looks as if I posed them in this stance. We were walking back to our apartment

I asked if it would be okay if I took their photo. Well, in gestures.  The man agreed.

The dog sat so handsomely.

His owner tried to get him to look at me, turn his face. So kind.   I said, no problem, don’t worry, it’s okay.

Not sure what had his attention down the path towards the market but he sat so still, at the ready.

Dog Parking at King Cross

Laura is the one who spotted this parking spot.  We were waiting for a taxi.

She asked, “Did you photograph the Dog Parking? and I said, “HUH?” but there it was. Thanks,  La. Good find.

Seems everyone took their dog right inside the shopping area. Dog ParkingPark your dog at King Cross

Helping Grandma Load the Car

Had to get that cell phone to my eye as quickly as I could to capture this composition.  My son had called the kids to help me load up the car as I prepared to leave Columbus for Pittsburgh. Henry is tagging along.




They were all (including Henry) going on their own trip, a couple of hours away, to select the Airedale puppy they’ll pick up Labor Day Weekend.

Stay tuned!

Henry the Airedale Photobombs the Family Picture

The baby was crying,.  Not a good time to try to continue on with a photos shoot anyway. But it was an idea.

Penny Remembers Before the Baby Came

The blog is back in real time today. No flashbacks, no reblogs from six years ago.

Penny, the Golden Doodle, looks at the baby Charles and remembers when she was the center of attention.

Perhaps I should have made this a wordless Wednesday or a

You Write the Caption.

She’s adjusting.

(And not sure what cousin Anna is doing )
