I have found that taking portraits of pets is really fun!
This handsome guy is our dog, Chance. We got him 1/15/03 from the shelter. He was thought to be around 8 or 9 months old. And they thought he was American Bulldog/Lab mix. He is pure mischief and muscle. I have found that I can ride my bike and he can run beside me...wonderful way for us both to exercise. And it makes him much calmer in the evening. Win, win.
