…morning at the off leash park – early Sunday morning………..

It was like a dog fest Sunday morning.  All these dogs have had their fun and were off to the parking lot.  We were headed in the other direction, to the open area of the off leash park………

Boucle and I were fascinated by the two standard poodles…beautiful dogs……

...sweetie-pie........

I started off photographing Christmas decorations, but Boucle was right there and irresistable, so I took of few shots with the flash set up of sweetie-pie.  He is such a good dog……I would say..stay….and he would, right until I finished…..so  incredibly patient and I am so very lucky he is with me………..

A good way to start my blog….with sweetie-pie…..

...sweetie pie - ears flying....tail flying.........

 My sweetie-pie was doing this for me.

He saw that I had come out with the camera, and decided he wanted to show off and play too, so he ran up and down the lawn while I pointed the black thing at him.  As soon as I put the camera down, he stopped all the running and went back to sniffing the lawn for squirrel tracks.  He really is such a good dog!
