Any day at the beach is a good day! But it’s exceptional when the sand clings to your collar and the sun pulls the salt water from your fur as you sit on a Carolina beach. Her gaze was so much of this moment that I wanted room for us to wonder what held it. It’s easy for us to humanize dogs but they have a special quality off leash in wild spaces. Like us, dogs like the beach.
Black and Tan on Blue
Formerly known as the “Sheriff of Carrboro,” this Black and Tan resided two doors down and often used his coonhound voice to talk to neighbors. He regularly reclined on his oversized blue chair out on the front porch. We miss bumping into Moses now that he’s sheriff of a new town in South Carolina.
Edge of Somewhere
One Sunday afternoon Carl had found the spot where the sun was pouring in from the south. I laid down on the carpet, feeling the warmth for myself and started taking pictures with the camera sitting on the floor. He barely opened his eyes as I moved to get shots with strong foreshortening. After
finishing, I let the sun take me to where he was.
Rich and good. Chocolate, like dogs, come in many varieties. Often one is premium to us!
