I Lose My Mind When You Leave The House

Here is a poem from the book I Could Chew On This And Other Poems By Dogs. Thank god Oshie doesn’t do any of this.

“The plants are torn

The garbage strewn

The wires chewed

The couch and I had a fight

Your bed is soaked

Your liquor spilled

Your TV smashed

Your laptop no longer has any vowels

There’s a smartphone in the toaster

There’s a toaster in the toilet

There’s a toilet in the hallway

There’s underwear in my mouth

I went places I should never go

I saw a side of myself I should never see

I said things to the cat I can never take back

So please don’t ever leave again”
– Francesco Marciuliano

Beaver Creek Court

Work is done, grass is mowed and Oshie has gone for a walk around the neighborhood. I leave you with a shot of the sun setting over Oshie’s stomping grounds. Have a good Friday evening! The weekend is here!

Hockey Season Is So Close!

As avid hockey fans Nancy and I can’t wait until the season starts. The official start of the 2015-2016 season is Oct 7 but pre-season games begin in just 3 short weeks. Naturally being named after a hockey player…Oshie also loves the sport. He can’t wait for the season to start and being forced into wearing team T-Shirts/Jersey (Bruins for me Kings for Nancy) and hockey gear! Anyone else as excited as Oshie for hockey season to begin?

Oshie says give your pups some extra love today!

Oshie In Black And White

Just a few shots I took over the weekend. Enjoy and as always thanks for visiting.

A Stroll Around the Neighborhood

Last night Nancy and I decided to take Oshie for a walk around the neighborhood and I decided to bring along the camera. Oshie loves going for walks because he gets to sniff where all the other dogs have peed and then pee on their pee. It is surprising just how much urine his bladder holds. The only downside to taking Oshie for a walk (other than having to wait for him to pee everywhere) is that he likes to pull on the leash. This behavior was certainly worse when he was younger and I have tried (with little effort…hey I am no professional trainer) to train it out of him and teach him to heel. That usually on last for a few seconds and then he is out front again keeping the leash taut.

Thankfully he listens to our commands most of the time and won’t run off when he spots another person or dog and we live in a quiet neighborhood. This has allowed us to  let go of the leash and let it drag behind him. Surprisingly when we do this he slows down and stays closer to us. I am not sure why he feels the need to pull when on the leash. Anyone else experience this?

So here are a few shots from the walk last night. There are a few fire hydrants in the neighborhood and I thought it would be funny to get some pictures with him next to it. Unfortunately I deleted the best one where he looked as if he was sticking his chest out and showing everyone that he owned that particular hydrant. Anyway here are the shots. Enjoy and thanks for taking the time to view our blog.

It’s All In The Eyes.

The other night I was sitting on the couch being fat and eating Gelato right out of the tub  (if you can call it that). Ever the foodie Oshie decided to investigate. It started off with him sitting in front of me on the floor intently watching as I shoveled each bite into my mouth.

Fast forward a few minutes and he was laying on my lap putting on his best act. He was doing sad puppy eyes and staring at my treat. He is so expressive with his eyes it is amazing. He may not be able to talk but you can pretty much always tell what he is thinking or what his mood is by looking at his eyes.

I didn’t give in because there was chocolate in the Gelato, had it been vanilla I would have had a hard time not  giving him a treat. He sure knows how to work us over to get what he wants.

Experimenting with Monochrome And My Favorite Subject

Today I decided to experiment with Monochrome. As someone who is new to photography I have been trying anything and everything and not worrying so much about how the shots come out. As always I shot my favorite subject…Oshie. These photos were first shot in color and I used the tool that comes with Canon EOS cameras to do a little editing after. One of these days I will get my hands on  a software that provides me with a lot more options for post production editing. The first photo is to show what I started with (although I think I had already messed with it a little). Enjoy.

Oshie always looks so happy!

What a difference a header makes!

The WordPress.com Blog

Our websites are our online homes. It makes sense that we want to give them personality and warmth, just like we do with our physical homes.

One of the simplest updates with the biggest impact is a custom header, a completely free feature that’s available to the majority of themes on WordPress.com. A header instantly sets your blog apart — and with free online photo and graphic editing tools, a custom look is accessible to any blogger, no graphic design experience needed.

Take a look at the world of possibilities with these ten blogs:

Text, taken up a notch

A custom header doesn’t require a beautiful photo or exquisite drawing skills. Fonts have personality; just ask the bloggers and writers behind Don’t think just eat, Ellie and Ace, andThe Lovecraft eZineElegant, quirky, eerie — fonts can communicate all that, and more.
