I love dogs! When I meet a new dog walking along the trail with his or her person, it’s not easy to walk past them without saying hello, especially when the dog is as cute as Beaux and the person as delightful as Phyllis. Today is the first time I have met them in the park. I learned that Beaux, a shih-tzu, is a rescue dog who came from Houston to live with Phyllis after her other shih-tzu had passed away. Losing a much loved canine companion is very sad, but rescuing another lovely furry friend is a blessing for both the person and the new pet. Beaux has only been in Ohio for about eight months, but it’s obvious he and Phyllis have already become fast friends. When I asked for a photo opp, Phyllis lifted him onto the bench, and he posed briefly…until another dog came down the trail. That was the end of posing, as far as Beaux was concerned. Obviously other dogs have more puppy appeal than a stranger pointing a camera at his face! But it’s such a sweet face, I’m happy I got a chance, however brief, to take his picture, and add him and Phyllis to my gallery of Fabulous Faces.
Although the sun was shining today, it was still pretty chilly, but a sunny day is always a good day to walk along the trail. I captured a few bird photos today also, but I’ll save them for another day.
