Tried something fun with Baxter in our office, we put a Steak Cufflinks on his paw and he hold it for just a few seconds for me to snap a photo and later edit it.
Included the original shot for comparison.
I’m thrilled to be invited to travel to China to photograph and attend my friend Murray James (http://www.murrayjames.net/) and Liu Liu’s Wedding!
My flight depart tomorrow, and I will have limited access to my blog (or the rest of the world outside of China!). Will post photos after I come back to States.
Mother is cooking some delicious Chinese food tonight, Charlie and Plato are all happy to be camping around the kitchen in hope of getting a treat of some sort!
Charlie’s character is best defined in black & white. Click thumbnails for larger pix.
Our new family member. Charlie was a owners surrender, he came from a shelter in Mississippi, where he was about to be put to sleep. But because he has a superb personality, the shelter worker contacted a friend at Fur Keeps Animal Rescue here in Chicago. Thus Charlie came all the way to Chi-town in a truck, and have seen a lot on the road. There is also a wonderful story that they told us: There was a thunder storm couple days ago and Charlie jumped over his fence to come to the other side to protect and sleep with a bunch of puppies who apparently got scared of the thunder, now that’s ultra sweet.
When we got him, he was all muddy and smelly from sitting in the barn, so we gave him a complete bath in the bathtub after he got home, and the water in the tub turned black! After the bath, he smells just like chocolate, his fur was shining!
Hopefully my cats would get used to such a big friend. Stay tuned for updated photos.
We LOVE Charlie!
Our beloved Holly passed away, she was 10 years old, we loved her so very much and she remained a “good girl” to our family even during the last couple days of her life.
She will be remembered as a very special family member who shared the ups and downs with us, helped guard our house, and been extremely intelligent and playful.
During the last couple days of her illness, she kept wanting to go out and sit in the sun, she looked peaceful. She never once peed or pooped in the house even when she was so sick and she can barely walk. She still hummed at my mum to take her out to pee and poo.
We can never find a replacement dog as loyal, intelligent and beautiful as Holly. She will be remembered.
