The year is 2008 and Eddie Tapp and Judy Host came for a visit when I was living in California. Judy captured this image of Eddie with Molly and later sent it to me. It was the perfect memory from a great visit.
While the last thing some people want is a kiss from a dog, every now and then Molly the Wonder Dog latches on to somebody special, and it was Eddie all the way. I loved the shot so much, I had a wall in my place back then, that just had Molly shots and this is one of my favorites.
Molly turned eleven this year on Labor Day, and just like watching your kids grow up, I can't figure out where the years went. She's still a diehard "tennis player." She's still chasing rabbits, both when she's outside and often in her sleep, and she still follows me everywhere.
On a trip to the vet recently I was told she's got the energy of a three year old, and I was asked what was the secret. So, for all you with pups, here it is...Lots of love, a sprint down the sidewalk every morning and no people food - with one exception. She loves a McDonald's cheeseburger - just plain, and gets one every couple of months. LOL
A few weeks ago I shared a "Why?" with Judy Host. It's a great little sound-byte. You'll also find one with an old favorite image of Eddie's. Hard to believe there's that much talent in one family!
Happy Throwback Thursday! Don't forget to use one of your own images in your blog today and remind your target audience of the importance of capturing memories!
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
