Nev The One Eyed Hawk

He can still see much better than I can. It was nice to finally get up close and personal with Red Shouldered Hawk after chasing them around my yard for the better part of a year with no real luck. Apparently he had an infection in his right eye that eventually got to the point where removal of it was necessary. Still a magnificent creature.

The Bedtime Ritual

Many people have a certain list of things that they like to do before they hit the sack. I like to make sure all lights are off, doors are locked, thermostats set and teeth brushed. Oshie has a ritual too. Parts of his ritual are cute and others are down right deplorable. Like a child, Oshie has a favorite blankie. The blanket is one that we have had for him since the day we brought him home. Every evening when it is time to go to bed, Oshie waits by the door to go outside. Once he is done marking the bushes for the millionth time he comes in and heads upstairs. Next he grabs his favorite blankie and brings it to the side of our bed. He then waits to be told to jump up ( yes he is completely spoiled and is allowed on the bed). Next is the part that is not so cute.

From the very first day we brought Oshie home at 7 weeks old he has been fascinated with blankets and towels. After the bath we gave him that first night home our innocent 7 week old puppy tried to hump the towel we dried him off with. It was cute and funny back then. Well he still has the same fetish for towels and blankets and while it can still be somewhat funny it is no longer as cute. So after he is told he can get on the bed he jumps up with his blanket and well, he tries to hump his favorite blankie.

He loves that blanket in more ways than one and it has taken more abuse than a blanket should. Here is a short video from last nights bedtime ritual.

What are we gonna do with this guy?

Around The Estate

Here are just a few photos from our trip to the Biltmore Estate that I never got around to posting. I wish I had taken some more time with camera settings to prevent the blown out skies that were hard to recover. The overcast conditions didn’t help much either but I will chalk it up as a lesson learned. I need to slow myself down and think about a shot before I take it. Needless to say, the house and grounds are impressive.

Winter Garden

I was going through my Library in Lightroom and came across this photograph from our trip to the Biltmore Estate. Not the best composition but the detail of the ceiling in the winter garden was amazing. The winter garden was located right at the front of the house. You go in the massive front doors and it is off to the right separating the entrance to the house and the massive dining hall. I played around with the processing a bit and I like this one at the moment. I am sure at some point I will return to this image and want to change how it looks.

Beautiful wood and lighting. I wouldn’t relaxing in this garden during winter months.

Puppy Plunge Part 5…The End

When the puppy plunge event was over we took Oshie home, gave him a bath and settled into the living room to watch a movie. Oshie jumped up on the couch with us and couldn’t keep his eyes open.Video proof below. Excuse my stupid narrative, it is hard not to talk to a dog like they are a child. I do enjoy wearing Oshie out because he sleeps for the rest of the day which gives Nancy and I time to relax. Normally he would be pestering one of us every 30 minutes to go outside just so he could come back in ha-ha.
