It recently occurred to me that I haven’t blogged a lot about two of the things that make me the happiest girl in the world. My dogs. Yep. I NEVER thought I’d be one of those people. And neither did my husband. But we are and we don’t care. I didn’t have dogs growing up (except for one that I barely remember because I was so young) and never really had an interest until after I got married. Now I can’t believe I waited so long! I love Lucy and Lola to death and they have really been a joy to me, lifting me up in dark times and loving me unconditionally. Not only are they constant companions to each other and us, they provide endless hours of entertainment – just ask any of our friends or family that come over. We’ve even had two people in our lives buy shih-poos (they are shih tzu/mini poodle mixes) because of them. You’ve seen some of these images of me on Facebook but I never blogged them. I finally broke down and experimented with some off camera flash one day in my living room (with a white paper backdrop and an alien bee ringflash) and after a few self portraits, John took a few photos of me and “the girls” and then I shot them alone.
Lucy is very good in front of the camera – so much so, she even helped win me a free website with BluDomain last summer. Here is our winning photo:
