A few things from around here . . . .

Below, ridge walking with Keeper, some early summer alpine flowers

Below, I'm sure Keeper is wondering how long it would take her to roll to the bottom of this slope if she were in a barrel.

Not a good picture but illustrative of the adventure, running some slopes after some squeaky sounds. They ran themselves ragged and caught nothing.

And it was windy and very cold, Abby's ears go airborne . . .

Finding a cool mountain stream to lay in is essential for any long walks with Keeper . . . . her hips bother her a bit.

Keeper seems unaware of the thunderstorm brewing behind her at her home:

Summer scene in our yard, some old Adirondacks being buried by tall grass and small flowers . . . . a nice spot to sit in the late afternoon in the willows.

Adventurer on the Sheep River, west of our home, along a path we were hiking, the same stream Keeper is laying in above.

Rick, I don't know how many times we can say this to you, but as always your shots are breathtaking. I can't resist opening your threads with pics. Keep up the good work. The dogs must be in doggy heaven on earth out there! I would be.

Those pics look so refreshing. It's been so humid and unbearable here, those mountain pics look so breezy and fresh, and that pic of the cool, clear stream is awesome, lucky Keeper.

I love how Keeper lies in the water like that:cloud9: . Sorry to hear that her hips are bothering her though:sad:
I also like where Abby's ears are blowing in the wind:lovestruck:

Oh, I almost missed these! Amazing as always! LOVE the picture of Abby's ears flying back and of Keeper lying in the stream. Just gorgeous shots. Glad Keeper has the cool steams to help with her sore hips!

Oh my, what beautiful pictures!!! And your dogs are so adorable and gorgeous!! Thanks for sharing your exquisite photos - as usual, their quality make it look like you missed your calling , you should have gone into photography!! (I recall you did say you once worked for the alleged National newspaper (a fav quote of Dalton Camp who used to say he read "his so called national newspaper", lol) - did you do photography there. In our newspapers, when - as a student, I did take the occasional photo, I would do things like leave the lens cap on (This is pre digital camera age) or write a cutline about an accident referring to the "toetruck" hauling away the wreck - alas, it was on the front page of a provincial newspaper and I never heard the end of that one, lol

On another occasion - working pat while attending high school, nothing to do with pix - I wrote an obit, writing instead of "internment" that "celebration" would be in the spring. We actually had more calls about the "toetruck" than the obit so perhaps someone was celebrating. I personally wondered where the proofreader, not to mention the various editors, were - or at least the editors of the sections in question!

I did however once manage to obtain a great shot of one of our frigates while hanging out of a Sea King helicopter (with lots of safety gear though!)- and lived to tell about it, lol I must say the navy makes great breakfasts!

Anyway - sorry to be :offtopic: - I'll return to the regularly scheduled event, your beautiful dogs and photography ability!

Various weekly newspapers, a daily as a photographer/writer/columnist and a daily as a pure photographer . . . . but that was a quarter century ago as I like to say.

I remember writing a routine police report one morning and an editor's head snapped up and asked "What's this?" I had written that "a black boy's bicycle" had been stolen . . . . one of those things that end up on Leno.

Another time, a routine weather story which I started with "It's colder than your mother-in-law out there," elicited a three page letter from some guy half a continent away (before the internet) ripping me a new butt hole for offending mother-in-law's everywhere.

Lots of other things of course, from communists to political dirty tricks to scoops that ended in the Globe & Mail.

Ah, the salad days . . . .
