I’m in Ohio with the family for a couple of days. Almost four months since I’ve seen them. Josie and Henry, the Airedales, were enthusiastic for my visit and they were warming up the trundle bed in Maura’s room. where I’m supposed to sleep!
My grandson Michael (14) is the guest blogger today. Michael took some photos of Henry and Josie, their Airedale Terriers, over Memorial Day weekend.
The family visited the other grandparents in Virginia and celebrated Mark’s birthday.
Thanks for sharing your photos, Michael.
You captured the humorous duo! Keep on photographing, too.

Maura tried to set up the shot. Josie and Henry were hopeful for the treats she had in her hand.
Erika was bummed when she saw the pictures and she said they weren’t smiling.
It’s true. They weren’t smiling. I’ve seen them smile. Just like getting kids to pose for the Christmas card photo. Doesn’t always turn out like you wish.
The boys run the Airedales on the front yard at their other grandmother’s home. Hardy, Virginia. Chilly but beautiful outside.
Petey was walking on the sidewalk along the PGH Marathon route ( with Jacob).
I said what everyone probably always says to Jacob- “Oh my goodness! “Little Rascals Dog!” (filmed in the 1930’s as it turns out, YIKES)
Jacob graciously allowed me to photograph Petey AND told me how he found Petey in an animal shelter. Petey has a Mickey Mouse Mark on the top of his head and Jacob used to have a dog named Mickey.
A forever home for Petey is a very happy story. Lucky dog.
Guest Blogger Kim Teeple (my daughter’s sister-in-law) got a new DSLR camera.
She posted this photograph on her Facebook page and her brother James (my son-in-law) thought it would be a perfect guest blog. I agree.
“Our 9 year old Husky mix, Samson, loves the snow. I captured him with my new Canon Rebel T6 at a rare moment when he decided to stay in one spot. It was a cold snowy day in early January, 2018 at our home in Mansfield, Ohio. For 2018, my husband, Jeff, and I resolved to learn photography for our future of traveling North America in our KZ Venom Fifth Wheel. . Follow along on our travels at TeeplesTravel.com to watch our budding skills improve.”

SUNDAY AFTERNOON- I photographed the dogs as a we waited on the corner for the family to return from visiting the Statue of Liberty.
ALTHOUGH back in the Burgh tonight, I’m posting a few more NYC photos.

I’d taken a subway mosaic at 42nd Street Station of am Airedale.
The Airedales are waiting for my daughter-in- law Erika to throw the tennis ball. (Henry and Josie.) WAITING is this week’s photo challenge.
