Old Guys, and Old Dogs, Rule!


For as long as I remember, my dad’s been the guy at family gatherings who makes everyone pose for a photograph. And then another one, and then another one and then…

Since he retired, it’s not just my family that has to “say cheese” for my dad. He’s been globe-trotting with a camera round his neck snapping shots of people, places and animals all over the world. All this snap happiness has made my dad a great photographer.

Wanting to post some of my dad’s awesome animal photos on my blog, I asked him to send me some. After going through the two disks he sent me, it was clear that my dad loves his pooch more than any other animal in the world. There are shots of his Yellow Lab, Sheldon, everywhere!

Poor Sheldon, however; is getting up there and may not be my dad’s favorite subject for much longer. This post is thus dedicated to my dad and his dog.

Old Guys, and Old Dogs, Rule!

1. Trick or Treat

This is a photo of Sheldon dressed as my dad for Halloween. Yes – my dad dresses like that!

2. Puppy Love

Two of my adorable nieces showering Sheldon with love. I wonder how long it will take before their puppy love is no longer reserved for puppies. Hmmmm….

    Awesome and touching doggie photos. Reminds me of the saying, “Dogs are people, too!” Not everybody gets that, but dog lovers do. 🙂 – Mike
