Pigskin...

Took a walk to to the Jr. High School around the corner from me and watched some of the homecoming game. Here are few shots to get you in that tackling mood.

Where'd you get those peepers...

So their eyes begin to open. I don't know if they only see shapes and blobs of color at the moment; or how far they can see... but when you hold one up to your face you can see the excitement and wonder in those little wet jewels.

Did you know that although dogs are "color blind" they actually see color. They just can't discern between certain shades. Mamma dog will retrieve her red ball if asked or will find her blue ball (no jokes please) if you want her to. But a green ball in lush grass may slip her up. That's when her sense of smell kicks in and she'll find that one too! ;)

And Chance came home with a first place ribbon from an agility trial today. He ran an "Excellent A Standard" course (jumps, tunnels, contact equipment) which needs to be completed with no mistakes in 63 seconds or less. He completed the course with a clean run in 45 seconds! :)

Flight...

Puppy update...

Leave it to a border collie to find a tennis ball in the house... even at just under two weeks of age.



Their eyes are beginning to creak open so this weekend should prove very "fotogenic."

WIIF? #32

Last week continued two weeks of shared wins!
Jamie Dawn, Junie Rose, MCF and Wendy shared the win of "Water and Wine.":)

Here is What Is It Friday? #32



Rachel and 'chele shared the win this week. Way to go!



The fine print: On Fridays I will post an image in hopes that visitors will leave a guess in the comment section. The following Friday (or when someone guesses correctly) I will post a wide shot of the item. Each Friday a NEW image, along with a link to the previous weeks post, will be posted.

Ever wonder?...

I never thought that my wife and I would deliver babies. Not in that way... but, like a doctor. This was our second litter and your heart races as if it is your first... every time!

I say "every time" because each pup comes out in its own placenta. If breach (rear legs first) you have to help the pup along so that it can get out and start breathing. With all the pups, you have to clear the nasal passage, rub off the after birth, tie off the umbilical cord and snip away the excess... all the while, mamma-dog is trying to help you too.

And while all that happens I still marvel how a creature, that was just breathing liquid, takes its first breath out of the womb. Life is just too perfect to have happened by chance.

And so the first was born...

World Wide Web...

One image... two desktops.

One has natural lighting.


The other has the absence of color.


Which suits you?

P.S. Just as I was posting this I noticed a spooky face in the trees to the lower left of the web. Weirdness.

Jamie Dawn and Junie Rose shared a win last week and they each snagged a 8"X10" print of their choice.

I'll do more of those in the future.

Wifey has an eye too...

My wife was home with the pups and saw a butterfly in the yard near the dogs. Although our schipperke tried to eat it it hung out with our boy from mamma's first litter (3 years old) and the pups. These are to die for :)
