winter ice storm -- midwest
First your background Notebook post is lovely. Second. I like your fence and the good old boy sleeping. Glad you enjoyed your day in Oregon.
sparkle -- have a new header on today -- thanks for the nice word on the folk art header. He looked like a good ole boy enjoying the beautiful day. --thanks barbara
Most of my dogs have been the kind that would welcome anyone and everyone. Not exactly useful as a guard. LOL!
Florence -- I never know about the behavior of dogs when I am out and about in strange territory. This guy looked friendly but I am glad he was on the other side of the fence from me -- thanks -- barbara
That is a great photo! Love it! Beautiful composition.
Teresa -- thanks for the kind words. I miss my Sal and love taking photos of other dogs. thanks -- barbara
He's probably want to rip me a new one.
One Fly -- He was behind a fence -- don't think he had any intention of jumping over it. thanks -- barbara
Sleep afternoon photo. A classic, I say.
Joanne -- I think I want to be reincarnated as a dog (who has a good owner) and just sleep, observe, eat and play. Also to be petted and loved by many other folks who love dogs. Such a life. thanks -- barbara
This is such a great picture for so many reasons. Composition is perfect and love the dog sleeping in it...just a perfect pic!
turquoisemoon -- thanks for the warm words. This photo was just waiting to be taken -- I thought the dog would at least put his head up but I think he was just loving the sun -- thanks -- barbara
We have a little dog who sleeps in the sun with one eye very slightly open. He snores indoors but outside he is on guard. Lovely life for some dogs. Nice picture, made me smile.
claggle -- I would say that your dog is on guard outside with that one eye slightly open. I've read that having a dog is better than having a security system. Probably true in most cases. thanks for the kind words -- barbara
Dogs know when there's danger and you were not dangerous, so why should he bestir himself? Looks like a nice afternoon for people and dogs.
June -- It was a beautiful day in Oregon. I took some house photos where this dog was -- it had a beautiful fence with roses lining the front yard. Might put it on my blog soon? thanks -- barbara
Yup. Looks like a killer dog that for sure. That place won't be burgled....:)
Troutbirder -- Your comment made me smile. This dog flunked guard school I think. But he certainly was a handsome dog. -- thanks -- barbara
Love the photograph. Apt title.
NCmountainwoman -- thanks -- couldn't resist this lazy bones. -- barbara
Hattie -- Yes, I feel that his dog was a sweetie -- thanks -- barbara
Barbara, it is a gorgeous photo, & I can feel your love for that sleepy dog...
Rita -- I have always had a soft spot in my heart for dogs -- thanks -- barbara
I'm not sure I would test his outward appearance of indifference by getting any closer.
Raining Iguanas -- I too would hesitate to get any closer than the other side of the fence from him -- thanks barbara
