The Boys are Back

Summer camp proved to be a success for my doglets. They ran and ran and ran and ran and came home exhausted. The plan worked, their activity level has subsided since they returned. How long this will last? Who knows? But I get a bit more time for my activities when they come home and… Continue reading The Boys are Back

Boys at Summer Camp

The dogs are at summer camp: running playing, scuffling, growling, sleeping. Doing what all kids do at camp when a deadly virus isn’t threatening. What freedom for them! And for me. I can relax without part of my brain registering if they need to go outside, or what mischief they are up to when they… Continue reading Boys at Summer Camp

Doglets are My Smile of the Week

During this time of isolation and remote contact with others, I have found what brings me smiles are my two doglets. Actually, only one would be considered a doglet, and that would be the smaller of the two, Radar. Sergio the younger and larger, doesn’t qualify for the doglet term since he is a bit… Continue reading Doglets are My Smile of the Week

Precious Pets for Lens Artists Photo Challenge

I decided to participate in Travels and Trifles lens artists challenge showing pictures of ‘precious pets’, so here are several of my doglets as they played, slept, chased, and provided hours of entertainment, exasperation, fun, and love. This first picture is of Radar, left, and my sister’s love Sammy engaging in playtime, in motion on… Continue reading Precious Pets for Lens Artists Photo Challenge

Radar

I did it; exactly what I said I wouldn’t do. I got a doglet, not an ‘old’ one, like I promised myself, but an 8 month old pup. High maintenance, demanding, shedder, precious, busy, smart, energetic, darling, shy, bold, playful, attention seeker. That translates into ‘High Maintenance’, and covers the high points of Radar. He… Continue reading Radar

A new boy in my life

A new boy is in my life. To be clear, no old boy is being replaced, in case you were wondering. This youngster is challenging my tranquility and consumes way, way, way more time than I had anticipated. Babies demand constant oversight, and at 76 my attention span is not what it once was, to… Continue reading A new boy in my life

A little sister is pushing her older sibling in a stroller along the march route, and both were wearing the pink Pussy hats… Continue reading Candid shots in Black and White
