I’m sorry I’ve been so out of touch. Things have been so busy.  It’s amazing how adding a third dog can take away half your time. (ok…I may be exaggerating. ) This is my busy season, so I should have many things to blog about.  The question is….Will I have time? I suppose the biggest news is this: Your dear friend Pickles was selected to be the cover dog for the Arizona Border Collie Rescue 2015 calendar!  And I got to shoot her photo, as well as her May images, Nike the July dog, and October dogs Saxon and London!  The calendar is beautiful.  They did a brilliant job assembling cute dogs, talented photographers and the print quality is great. Here is my girl now, in one of the photos that didn’t make the calendar:

Time is going by so fast.  Pickles is 6 and Tralee is 1.  Pickles and Cody Bear still love each other, but he also enjoys sitting back and watching the two Border Collies play.  I love how he smiles at them. And every now and then he will join in the fun.  But he is slowing down.  And how is he doing with the new, high drive, loony puppy….?

He loves her.  And she adores him.  He is very protective of his girls and he loves having that role of protector.

In even bigger news!  Some of you know I have enjoyed working on my photography portfolio for several years now. Well, I was invited by the i.d.e.a. Museum in Mesa, AZ to participate in their “Jeepers Creepers: BUGS in art” exhibition running from 10/3/14 to 1/25/15!  I saw the exhibition last week.  I drove to Scottsdale and dragged my parents to the gallery opening. We had a great night and my parents and I were SO impressed with the gallery and the diverse collection!

The i.d.e.a. Museum is geared towards inspiring creativity and education for children and they’ve done a brilliant job keeping a collection of talented artists and making it interactive and fun for kids.  Please check it out, it is sooo much fun. Final October news:  Goodbear has gone vegan!  Today is day thirty.  I had a few off days where I couldn’t avoid dairy, but for the most part it was a good thirty days and I’m going to keep at it.  I will allow an occasional egg from my friends’ home chickens.  I know I won’t be perfect, but I’m going to give it a shot.  I decided to do it for health reasons and I could instantly see improvements in that department.
