Saturday evening; it was me and the hounds, everyone else was out. I thought about heading down to the beach; the dog beach that is to shoot all the dogs having fun. Then I considered that I'd have to leave my guys to do that and being that it was just them and I; I shot the pack instead. I love shooting my guys; and I have to say that I have done a lot of shooting them. After a backyard shoot and some sunset deck shots I gave them their dinner. Once they ate I prepared my own dinner and we head down to watch some chick flicks.
Funny how whatever I'm doing is what the pack is doing. When I went outside with my camera; they all followed. Up to the balcony; all but Jessie followed me out there, she needed a bit of help to figure out where we'd gone. Then they all followed me down to the family room for some much anticipated canine R&R. Canine R&R is not only for the canines; it is very much for the humans as well. And that human would be me; the lucky one. There I was with the three most wonderful dogs I know; each laying on and under their own blanket sharing the sofa with me.
Tilley took up the opposite end from me; Jessie was smack dab in the middle and Luke snuggled so close to me that I was squished up pretty tightly in the corner. Getting up and down took some work; wriggling out from under Luke, but he wasn't giving an inch. As I sat watching my movie I glanced at them all; I took in the view; a pretty great view. I smiled; what a pack, what a great pack we are. Not long into my movie I had to smile again; both Tilley and Jessie were snoring, quite loudly while Luke ran and twitched in his dreams.
It is their presence; their simple desire to be in my presence that makes it all so wonderful.
