Making Up for the Elvis Photo

OK, so I'm trying to make it up to Hawk for the Elvis photo. My friend Lori takes direction well when I manuever the dog. First thing I ask her, sooo sweetly, is, "Um, would you be interested at ALL in getting down on his level in the wet, muddy grass to get a better angle?" Or, "Hey, that rock looks good, could you climb over to the other side so the light will be better?" Well, that one didn't go over so well, but she's a good friend and when I called her this morning and asked her to bring her camera to work with her, she obliged. :-)

We have a lovely trail behind our office building, with three ponds, two waterfalls, and a nice asphalt path that makes about a 1/2 mile circle. This time of year, we also have lots of geese that rest in one of the big fields in the middle of the trail circle. Unfortunately, that means they leave lots of, uh, stuff behind. Hawk had a serious refresher course in "LEAVE IT" this afternoon.




And well, just because I am who I am...

Stunning pics! He's so darn handsome. I've been a huge Vallhund fan since I saw them the 1st time in a dog book.

I love the "wolf sable" pattern and color :)
