We're in between two holiday weekends and having a stretch of life that's simply quiet and peaceful is wonderful! It's also wonderful when there's a real camera in my hands instead of my phone. I'm not saying I can't get great images from my phone, but this was captured with an older LUMIX FZ300, and I love what this camera can do.
But there's a more important point to today's post...it's about the pups in our lives. We got Belle and Lucy four months before the pandemic kicked in. We've all been together every day since, and they're an integral part of our lives. Little did we know how they'd save our sanity while having to hunker down.
My portrait of "Barbara and Belle" says it all. Our friend Barbara was over last Sunday. A few months ago, her husband, our good friend Frank, passed away, which I wrote about. Pups know when they need to give a little lovin'. So while Lucy was clueless, Belle latched onto Barbara and went to sleep by her side.
Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them!
Wishing everybody a terrific Wednesday and don't forgot to hug your dog - in fact, go for those eleven-second therapeutic hugs I always write about on Sundays.
