Taking a break from my usual wildlife and landscape photos to some pics of my best friend to celebrate National Dog Day.
Scout “rescued” me when I was in a pretty low place in 2011 after losing my dad and my former four-legged best friend. One event would have been bad enough but having both occur in the same year put me in quite a mental funk.
In an attempt to get myself out of it, we got Scout in pretty short order and he was just what the doctor ordered.
Being a border collie he is very, very high energy, even at nine years old but we love it and all of his idiosyncrasies. One of the highlights of my day is when I come home and he insists we go play Frisbee. It is good exercise for him and a good way to wind down after work.
This particular photo shoot with him was done a couple of weeks ago when I was testing out my new Canon R5. He is always a ready and willing photo subject.
