I’m away from my desk at this time and thought it would be fun to do an auto-post featuring puppy photos of George.
And I’m lying about the desk. I write all my posts from my couch.
I took all the photos you see here with my old camera, a little Sony Cybershot I used for years. It was my first digital camera and I think it did a pretty good job, considering. However, some of my digital memories are a little misty and water-colored.
I just can't believe how cute he was as a puppy. George was born in July of 2007 in Ellsworth, Maine and these photos were all taken in October when he was about 2 1/2 months old.
Please don’t look at my coffee table. Ok, well. I guess now it’s too late. Also don’t look at the covers we have on the couch. It was a valiant attempt on my part to keep the furniture free of dirty puppy paws and a husband who worked with horses.
The one thing that I demanded when we were discussing getting another dog was that the puppy not be permitted on the furniture. None of our other border collies had ever been allowed to do this and it was important to me at the time. Unfortunately, my single demand fell on deaf ears. And I eventually got over it.
He enjoyed this elephant for quite some time. I think it had something to do with the trunk. I seem to remember that it squeaked.
I always liked this photo. It was taken in our backyard at Northview Stallion Station, outside of Chesapeake City, Maryland. In the background, you’ll see an attempt by my husband to fashion a piece of equipment in the hopes that George would someday compete in Border Collie Trials.
It stayed like that for a week or two when we realized that the puppy just wanted to have his way with a piece of driftwood in the yard that was about twice his size. It provided much chewing and dragging satisfaction.
You’ve come a long way, baby.
Hope you enjoyed the trip down memory lane with me. Until later, my friends . . .
PS ~ I’m sorry to say this, but I’m going to be taking a small break from blogging. Could be a couple of days, could be a week. I just need to relax and want to see if I can actually stay away from technology for a little bit.
I appreciate the wonderful and encouraging comments from a couple of posts down when I mentioned the school year closing out and just being so busy. I’m glad for the busy, I honestly am. There are so many who don’t have jobs (my husband included). I’ll miss all of you. But I promise, I shall return.
