A Place to Share My Photos

The Mop

Posted by Amami Superman

One thing I really like to photograph, and I don't know why, is dirty mangy mutts. I have a family blog and I usually post them there but I thought it would be fun to post them here. Some of other dogs I've taken photos of are Ancient Yeller and Scratch My Back.

I was out driving last Thursday after work looking for a good place to take some sunset photos and came across some kids and their dog.

The thing I like the most about the above photo, you can put anything for a caption and it works. Well, it works for me. "Free me." "You look yummy." "Give me your wallet." "I can see into your soul..."

These four kids where just sitting in the shade eating some ice candy when I drove by and I had to stop and talk to them. They offered me some ice candy but I was holding my camera and refused. It turned out that their cousin is in the same class as my daughter.

Well Trained

Despite the dog's looks, it was very well trained. It knew sit, shake and come. As I talked to these kids it kept coming up and sniffing me. I guess it smelled my dog Missy on me.

These kids reminded me of when I was a young. I remember running around barefoot eating otterpops. Ah yes, those were the good old days.
