Pumpkin’s Birthday Portrait

Falling leaves and good light compelled me to shoot Pumpkin for her official birthday portrait, even though she won’t be ten until Halloween. I love this girl beyond reason, and I am a lucky man to have had her for a decade. I want her forever.

Happy Pumpkin

Pumpkin recently went on a vacation with us to lake Huron. While there she got to run around off leash and play with another golden on the beach and in the water. She will be ten on Halloween and remains my precious and sweet love, in very good health.

Odd Egg In

Recently, while walking Pumpkin I found a bird egg that was just resting on the grass, nowhere near a tree. I noticed a hairline crack, but it appeared viable, with no liquid leaking. I cupped it gently and upon arriving home I placed it in a nest that I found just a day earlier.
