Dog Day Afternoon - Friday 4/11/2008
So I was sitting on my front porch finishing up a telephone conversation with my sister, when two thirsty dogs wandered into the yard. They looked pretty happy to see someone at home.
This one not only had a long long drink out of the tub of water I brought out, she put her front legs in it and splashed it up onto her belly. I really like this shot a lot.
This one was just the sweetest. She was ready to come in the house.
"You're very nice people. There must be a dog dish in there that needs licking clean."
I called the number on the brown one's collar and Hydra brought rope and we tied them to the apple tree. We were petting them--the brown one was actually sitting on my foot pressing her back into my shin by this point--when their owner called.
She was grateful and friendly and sent her son down from up the road with leashes to retrieve them.
It's been a very doggy week. [grin]
