I was looking through my photos, getting ready to begin edits on the next shoot, when I stumbled upon a couple shots I took of Sweets – the old man Chihuahua. Totally blissed out at the beach. Ever since we made it out to my parent’s cabin a couple weeks ago, I’ve been doing my best to get us back out there… and I think these images explain why.
Sweets really was completely blissed right out, he’s a lake dog if ever I’d met one. Totally and completely in his element, exploring, sunning, and just generally enjoying everything about being at the cabin. And there is little that makes me happier than seeing someone I love so very happy. I have to admit, sometimes I forget just how short a time this old man has been a part of our family. Seems like he’s always been here. 🙂
In other news… keep your fingers crossed that our little old man chi may soon be a Daddy (again). Knock on wood, we’re hoping to have puppies this Autumn.
Well, before I announce which of my wonderful Facebook fans is the winner of the free “It’s all you” shoot… I’m going to share a little about my day. 🙂 Which was lovely btw.
I did a photo shoot in the early afternoon with Reche and her family. They were absolutely delightful – such sweet little girls. Her youngest is out to conquer the world, and will do it too I bet!
Then I picked up the husband from work, picked up the kid from school, hit the co-op for some picnic supplies (gotta have strawberry salad and watermelon), packed up a yummy fresh supper into our picnic bag… and off we went to one of my favourite little hidden spots down by the river. Most of the sandbars are overrun with people, but I know a couple slightly more out of the way spots, and we were all alone.
We did see our first tick of the year, nasty little things make me cringe and even thinking about it has me all itchy… LOL But it was all good. The girl played in the sand, she and her Daddy threw and skipped rocks. And we all very much enjoyed our first picnic of the year. Silly me, I didn’t think to bring my telephoto lens along – but I’ll remember next time. 😉
After supper we stopped on over to my Auntie Risa’s new place. It was nice visiting with her and my cousins. And we even were treated to a little fried chicken and tea.
So yep. A very nice day.
Okay… so ya’ll are wanting to know who gets the free photo shoot, right? Who gets to be spoiled and be the star? Well, our lucky number is 141 (so instead of counting up from 1, I counted backwards from 158).
So Facebook fan number 141 is…..
