He is racing around at 5:30 because he can!
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!
It sure has been hot and humid. Dutch is smart to get his exercise in the early morning hours!
Nice grass – Looks like you could do tracking there!
Great photos of a georgeous subject! The pics almost have a painting like quality instead of looking like a photo.
These photos are so amazing.
Beverly, Libby is packing to come live with you and Dutch!
That first pic is hauntingly beautiful……..The second one just makes me laugh! Someone on FB mentioned he photobombed it…….that’s exactly what it looks like. LOL
Is that your garden? OMG beautious.

Thank you all so much for the compliments on our grounds – we’ve worked hard to create the landscape you see. When we bought our home, the gardens were gone. There was just open and wooded land. The formal gardens were gone, but their stone wall remained, together with the Tea House and gate. Over the years, we’ve restored the grounds, planting trees, shrubs, ornamentals and perennial gardens.
The pictures were taken with the Nikon D7000 that Julie recommended back when Dutch was a pup and we were searching for a good digital camera. I bought the Nikon DX AF-S NIKKOR 18-55 mm VR lens, and it really makes my amateur pics look great. The painterly effect is, in large part, a function of the low-light conditions in the first shot. It really has a mystical magical feeling. The grounds are strikingly beautiful all year round, transformed with each season. My Dutchie is always by my side – he’ll run and play, but keeps a watchful eye on me. I’m sure you all love the way they’re always racing back to connect with us: the light touches, the gentle kisses, the playful nudges as they run by. It’s like they’re saying, “I love you so much – I could play here together forever!” Of course, our playtime includes Frisbee, Chuck-it retrieves, a version of tracking that’s more like Hide & Seek, Push-Ball, etc. The expansive field is a great place for training, but, except for the golfers next door, there aren’t usually many distractions out there.
