Continuing the beach photos.  BTW, we went to Bayocean Spit again.

While we were walking on the beach (we walked for about 1.5 hours), I thought that I didn't take many photos.  When I got home, I realized I was wrong.  The next few days will be dedicated to beach photos.

Dogs and birds.Collapse )

I especially like this photo of Friday.

These coyotes were not in Glacier: I spotted them out my kitchen window.  On Friday I saw a pair of Bald Eagles out of the same window.

I had heard the coyotes at times, but this was the first time I saw any.  There were three adults wandering around the nursery this morning.

Three coyotes.Collapse )

My yard is now essentially all fenced.  That is good except that I've created a gopher and vole refuge zone.

I was thinking of going to the beach over the holiday break but the weather wasn't that great and I was a bit of a bum.  But today:  sunny and 58 degrees!  We were there!!

This was our final (third) pose.  Doc is getting so much better at staying!  I'm the shadow on the left.

Other beachgoers (there were just a few) were so impressed that they took photos of me taking photos of my girlfriends.  I can't try to get Z's attention without the Doctor abandoning the driftwood rootball to come to me.  But she did great today with posing, as well and coming and checking in with me while we were walking (it was her fourth beach romp).

We love huge driftwood specimens.Collapse )

This is the last installment of photos of my brief rendezvous with my goat, Billy.

Brief encounters have to end.Collapse )

Bye, bye, Billy.  And thanks for the memories.

Next:  In real time, we're going to the beach tomorrow.  There will be a break from the Glacier photos.

It was so nice of Billy to walk down the mountain toward me.  Head shots are so much nicer than butt shots.

This may need to be printed on canvas.

Down the HillCollapse )

Billy and I are sharing a road in Glacier.  Just the two of us.  I am so happy.  He's smiling, too!

Next:  The remaining goat photos.

It's mainly downhill.Collapse )

Next: the last stretch before the road (I took a quick look ahead).

I can't help myself.  I feel compelled to post many photos of my goat (but just a fraction of what I took -- honest!).

Working his way down the mountain.Collapse )

Next:  Probably more goat photos.

For me, it just doesn't get better than this!

Billy walks and eats.Collapse )

Actually, it might get better -- but I haven't looked at the rest of the photos yet.  I'm enjoying the discoveries.  I don't remember the specifics of when I took all these photos, but I sure remember how jubilant I was when I walked back up to Logan Pass that morning.

2018 was the year of no agility competitions at all.  I believe that this hasn't happened since 1995(??).  Our last trial was in August of 2017 when we did one day in Salem and then spirited penichops away to the beach.  Friday just doesn't like playing any interactive games (although she does like being a lap dog in the recliner in front of the fireplace).  I like to have two dogs to train and take to trials.  Zelda is coming up on twelve years old and has nothing to prove.  It was hard to find excitement to train with the young Doctor, all by herself for the most part.  Something must be done about this.  Seven?  In the meantime, I am starting to work on some easy inside stuff with Doc and we will get more focused in the spring.

Although this review is usually for agility accomplishments, I guess I'll just review some beach photos to show our progression throughout 2018.

New Year's Eve preceding 2018:  Zelda and Friday.  Doc's litter would be born 4 days later.

More Review StuffCollapse )

In real time, Billy took about 15 minutes to eat his way down the mountain slope, cross the road and wander off into the meadow below.  In blog time, this journey will take many posts because I am so enjoying this whole process of editing my photos and savoring the experience again.  I like being able to study my subject.

Grazing is slow work.Collapse )

I attempted some more studio shots today, with background tassels for festiveness.  Someday I will figure out this lighting, plus iron the backdrop.  But for now, I am fine with these birthday hat photos -- they capture the joy.

The tassels were straight but I guess I and/or the girls were not.  This picture makes me smile.  All pictures of the Gordon Girls do that.

Inside fun.Collapse )

Happy Birthday to the young Doctor!

Today my puppy became a dog.

Happy Birthday, Dr. Doctor.

Doc!  She's such a good girl.

I had spent about 10 minutes watching my goat and taking photos and he (I call him "Billy") was content to stay in the same spot chewing his cud.  So I moved up and down the road a bit to get some different angles and backgrounds and views of my handsome friend.  I had already made sure that he had a pretty red mountain behind him, but I had time to try more things.

New angles.Collapse )

Next: Billy descends from on high and I (over)document the stroll.
