This one was easy for me – say Hi to Rosie – my constant companion for 15 years. She’s showing signs of aging (as am I) so I thought it fitting to share this photo.
This was taken a few years ago – I remember the joy as she bounced through the snow – this amount of snow does not happen often here on the Virginia coast.
This is just a fun post. I don’t normally post camera pix or ones of me – but this one is different. We attended the Old Dominion University game Saturday and I got to pose with this famous dog. His owner grooms him to look like ODU’s mascot – a monarch lion. What made him famous was that a few months ago he was spotted walking down a street near our zoo and the 911 dispatchers were getting calls of a baby lion on the loose. So if interested here’s the story
I am posting one of my favorites ( I have quite a few ) from Hatteras Island. This was taken in 2010 in Salvo, NC on the sound.
We enjoyed a local beach yesterday and folks are allowed to walk their dogs until 10 am. Since we arrived at 730 am – there was plenty of 4 legged traffic to photograph.
I love taking pictures of dogs at the beach. The owner of this dog was having a great time and so was the dog. I have a fondness for black labs like this one because we used to have one. This dog acted as if it could do this game all day long.
How do I look after my bath and brushing?? This is Rosie (or Rosebud – as I call her) – she can be skittish at times but she is as loyal and sweet as they come. She is part shepherd and something else. We adopted her from a kennel when she was 4 months and have had her 12 years. Her previous owners wanted her to be put down because they could not afford minor surgery on her paw. The vet did the surgery and kept her in the kennel. We lost our black lab to seizures around the same time and agreed to take her in. So glad we did.
