    Smile A new face at home ...

    Well … it has been rather empty in the house without my loving pooch of 10-years. It is hard to describe, but the lack of sound in my home is amazing … and disappointing. I went on a search for another Golden Retriever, one that was in need of a good home and found him rather quickly. After a couple of days, his life has completely changed and he is still reeling at no longer being kenneled and now having real grass under his feet.

    Welcome to “Rusty”, a true challenge to train, at 5 years old and, quite literally, living a “sheltered” life.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Beautiful looking dog. He looks right at home. I guess he knows he has a good home. Congrats on the new member of the family.

    I was hoping you'd get another dog. Congratulations on saving the pup from the kennel. I did the same about 10 years ago for a Keeshond that spent a few years bouncing around. He's gone now but he was a great dog.



    Yeah I know mine's underexposed too, I didn't take it.
