Day 70 Poor Old Dog Stuck in the Snow

Look! I'm on theme with an animal picture tonight! Poor, old, arthritic dog. 13 1/2 years old--I hate to make her go out in the snow and cold.


Oh no! She's stuck in the snow! It's too deep for her! I'm going to have to go out there and help her back to the house! This is NOT good!


Oh, wait! Watch out! Incoming! Where'd all that energy come from?



Oh, right! Now she's going to roll around in the snow! Crazy dog! Come on; I want to go in; I'M freezing!


18-135 mm lens at 105 mm, ISO 200; f/13; sunny white balance; ss: 1/125. All shot RAW, manual mode, hand-held.

Oh my the thought of having to go in after her. Boy do you have snow. She does look like she enjoyed it.

There must be something about undisturbed snow that brings the kid out in ALL of us! I love this series of shots and the journaling you wrote to go along with it. You should definitely create a page with these!

Great shots!

I'm going to love this week; I'm a total sucker for animal photos, especially dogs. These are so fun. When my last dog was old and infirm, it was like snow was a fountain of youth for her.

I love the bounding in the snow shot. Reminds me of a dog I use to have...

Mandy said...

What a great shot of your pup. He always blends right into the snow he is so white. From those last few photos you couldn't tell him was 13.5!

Ha ha. Poor dog. I remember growing up in SD my dog getting stuck too. We used to say he got "high centered" again.

Very nice shots! I like that first one especially.

Amy said...

She's a beautiful dog and sure looks like she's full of energy in the one she's running towards you!

I love the one of her "stuck" in the snow... we too have been dealing with that with Simon. She looks like a typical lab though still a puppy well into old age. I always say you have just got to love a Lab!
