Is There Anybody Out There ?

You might well ask that of me. I'm afraid I've been MIA from blogland for quite some time ... a couple of seasons and a lot of water under the bridge in that time. It was never my intent to update this only once a quarter but you know how sometimes life gets in the way ...

I was wondering which photos to post since my camera hasn't been MIA and I've clicked the shutter quite a number of times since I last posted. I decided to share a few of our new furry best friend who joined our family last August. We took her to a doggy beach and we learned that she's definitely not a water dog - you'll see ...

I hope everyone's new year is off to a good start. I didn't make a resolution to come here on a more regular basis, but I will try ...

I wish there was a place like this near my house so that I could take my dogs!

Rick Forrestal said...

Great shots.
And yes, definitely NOT a water dog.

I love to watch dogs frolic as if they don't have a care in the world. Looks like yours is having a great day. Hope to see you back more regularly. I look forward to more of your photos!

Welcome Back Rick! Your new dog is beautiful and even if she doesn't like water she sure likes to leap through the air. LOL I hope you will be more present on here again. I enjoy your photos.

I've been wondering where you've been, Rick!
Just glad that all is well, AND that you've been clicking away!
These are great shots!
I especially love the last one. So sweet!

I wish you and your family a bright and beautiful New Year.

Hoi Rick,

bloggen is als plezier bedoeld en niet als moeten.
Je post alleen als je daar zelf zin hebt en niet omdat het moet :-)
Prachtige foto's van Mia en wat een mooie heldere sneeuwwitte kleur!

Groetjes, Helma

Hey Rick... HaPpY NeW yEaR to you and your family. I've been missing in action too & yes life certainly does have a way of getting in the way but that is how it's supposed to be isn't it. As my mum would say, everything in life has it's time. I love these photos, they're stunning. Keera is beautiful. She is blessed to have found her way into your lives & as a person with furry family members myself you must feel equally as blessed. Cheers from the land of OZ, Katherine.
