Strolling with Charles (1) around the neighborhood.
Hot summer sun. The colors so rich and alive.
I appreciate the gardeners’ efforts.
Back at the house on the front porch he said “bubble” and pointed to the chair.Underneath was a red plastic bear with bubble stuff. You had to squeeze the Bear’s stomach and it took awhile for me to get the hang of it.
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.
You have to take a picture. I asked the owner’s permission. She looked as if she had just been on a run or about to go on one with some friends.
His name is Oliver!
Oliver is a Heinz 57 mutt and he was smiling for the camera!
He’s six months old and has that puppy energy and enthusiasm. What a happy guy.
I’d just come out of the end of the year faculty meeting/gathering at the Hofbrauhaus on the edge of South Side Works near the riverfront trail.
So thanks Oliver (and your owner also- sorry I didn’t get your name)
I know Murphy smiles for the camera, too.
