Lounging...


Oh dear, this could be dangerous, this downloading pictures trick I now know how to do--sort of (I can't figure out how to see the pictures before I download them, so this one was snapped before our backyard remodel).

Anyway, here's Jake lounging in the backyard...which is where he'd probably like to be right now -- but it's cold and rainy today. I don't want him outside laying on the cold ground or on the flagstone because at his age (ten and counting) I worry about his hips.

As with most larger breeds (Jake is part Golden Retriever and part Grand Pyrenees) hip 'challenges' are always a concern and we want and try to keep those challenges to a minimum. So enjoy the picture of our peaceful baby taken a few years ago! It's easy to see why he's so special isn't it?

I know I know--beauty is in the eye of the beholder and although his head is too big for his body (and actually his tail looks a foot too long is this picture) and he doesn't have "golden retriever" ears, he's still the best, most handsome dog I've ever seen. What I need to do is take a close-up of his soulful brown eyes, then you'll understand!

Cute pictures of Jake! After I'm done with my taxes, I hope to learn how to download pictures on my blog too. Thanks for your help on the basics. I'm working on how to become a follower...I'll get there yet!

JMK, pictures were much much easier than I thought, althought I'd really like to reduce the size of my picture. I haven't figured that one out yet! Thank you for your comment

Oh, Cindy--

I LOVE this picture of your extraordinarily handsome canine companion. He looks like the perfect gentleman: quietly supportive, friendly, and, although he's basking in the sunshine, I'm sure he's attentive to your every beck and call.

Speaking of handsome creatures--that new photo of you is a knock out! I see Cougar potential, FOR SURE!

Eileen, Jake is a love. You'll have to meet him sometime...the pic of me is rather in your face and I can't yet figure out how to make it smaller, it feels like it screams SEE ME ...
