poor neglected blog. one whole month without any love :(
it's not that i haven't had anything to post, i guess i just got lazy. oops.
i spent part of today at my friends house. they're out of town, and asked henry and i to look after the house and their pup. they live in the wine country area. one side of the house is surrounded by a vineyard, the other side (and entire back of the house) is loaded with horses, and 1 donkey. i love it so much. i took advantage of the nice weather, and great property, and took my camera out today.
here's little miss june bug! she's such a sweet, smart girl. she needs to be a tv/movie dog. she learns so fast and would do anything for a tiny chunk of chicken... or a toy... or just some praise and love.
when we were out back admiring the horses, we saw this little pup and her mom peeking around the barn. i made kissy sounds, and she came running up to me with the happiest full-body wag ever. i had to hop the fence to give her love. her mom (a stocky, beefy, tough looking girl) came running up super fast. i thought "oh lord, please don't be an over protective, aggressive mom". right then henry said "uh oh! this one doesn't look as friendly!!" mom ran right up to me (as i'm crouched down loving on her kid) and buried her head in my chest. it was precious. i have a feeling if i would've ran from her, she would've chased me... and it wouldn't have ended as nicely. i'm glad she let me show her some love as well. she was a sweet girl... but didn't like the camera at all, so i only have pics of the little girl. wow... that story kinda dragged on, huh?! here let me start over. here's a dog that lives with the horses, behind the house. the end.
i love, seriously LOVE taking pics of animals. the flowers are fun, the beach is nice, the sunsets are pretty... but there's something about taking pics of animals, and seeing their eyes looking straight into the camera, that makes me so happy. (i'm going back tomorrow, and will probably take 20 more pics... of the same animals... but it will still be just as exciting as today.)
to end this loooong post, i have to repost a pic that my friend put on facebook today. it's TOTALLY me (except i'm not drunk, and i'd be holding a water bottle instead of a wine glass).
