Combing through the archives yesterday I came across this photo shoot which I HAVE to share from Aug. 2011. I wanted to practice action photography and that is exactly what I got. The harsh light presented challenges plus the pond usually pristine clear, had turned to half mud and half water late in summer. Which in time made dirty dogs and dirtier water. The Sundogs did not mind.Give me stick, give me water, I am happy.I will go over this big, giant, dead tree as many times as you want me to.There is no limit to my energy.The Zen Rock force is upon us. It shadows our fierce energy with it’s calm stillness.We don’t care how dirty we get.Even the older dogs go over the log.When the competition starts we strive to win but who cares who wins.The stick splashes and we are on it.Good thing the water is shallow, we can power through it.Who will the winner be, Maisie, Yolo, Sasha or Nevada?For some reason I can’t tell. Zen Rock is watching.It is time for the Sundogs to Zen out.Because hikers are everywhere and we have to leash up.Once the hikers disperse we have a little more fun on the way home. This is how we dry off.Miss Maisie Rose plowing through the Mountain Asters feeling very satisfied.Time to go back on the leash since the highway is nearby. Come on everybody, let’s go home. Life is good with Rockin’ Roy. He makes sure we make it back home.To the couch.
