“Man’s” Best Friend

Man’s Best Friend

You may notice the little girl in this photo; she is the same that I have featured in the header graphic of this site. This is one of my little princesses. I am a big believer in always having a camera at the ready. In today’s world of digital photography, you have no reason not too. When you are always at the ready, you are more likely to capture the wonderful moments in your life.

This is one of my favorite photos I have ever taken, bar none. The expression on both little “animals” feature here are priceless. Both are completely enjoying themselves as my little girl is dressing up the dog, Max, with a blanket and Max is getting the attention he loves.

Max was a “free spirit” as we like to say. We obtained him from someone that rescued him from a pound. He was in the pound because he had been found wandering and in need of food. We had him for a couple of years, but when we moved to our new home he kept wandering away to inspect his new surroundings. Eventually he didn’t come back. We did the signs and called the pound for months. Because he was never reported hit by a car or turned up at the pound, we like to believe someone else loved him so much they adopted him. We enjoyed his free spirit for a time, and then he moved on.

Our kids still talk about Max and miss him. My daughter asks me to pull up this photo sometimes to remember him, and she loves to look at it perhaps almost as much as I do. I am so glad I was ready and captured this moment to cherish.
