We were joined by two dogs you've not seen here before. There was Teddy, who lives with one of the volunteers at the SPCA and is being doggy-sat by my friend Else....
Hi Mom! I'm havin' lots of FUN!
...and Chi Ki who lives with Mary and my favourite bulldogge, Tarben. Chi Ki was awaiting surgery, and then recovering from it, and so has not been on our walks during the six months I've been here. But now she's baaaaaaccckkkk..... and what a character she is!
I took lots of photos but as I'm still trying to figure out focus and exposure with the new camera, I discarded most of them. I did use the continuous setting to take a series of Teddy with one of the wolfhounds, and from that series couldn't resist adding captions to these two:
Maybe if I play dead, he won't eat me!
Let's play hide and seek. I'll cover my eyes and count while you go find a place to hide. One..two...three.....
And lastly, I love this shot of red berries on a rain-soaked tree taken with the zoom lens from about 200 feet away: (Note: Click on photo to get the full impact, then use back browser to return to the blog).
It is the last day of 2009. Have a safe and happy New Year's Eve.
