The master is come and calleth for thee...St John 11:28

Wish he'd hustle
Is the conjoined thought
Of two Jack Russell's
Waiting for their master
At the parking lot
Of a grocery store...
Time drags slow
Watching thru' the window
Of their truck door.

No doubt the master
Would also worry
If he calls them
They might hide,
And they don't hurry
To his side
A little faster...
Poetry by me AJP

I couldn't help but notice how many windows seem to be cropping up in my photographs lately without intending for that to happen..

It was snowing this afternoon when I shot this picture of two very alert dogs sitting side by side watching and waiting...

A big thank you to Debrah Leonard for the spotlight!

    Nice opportunity, Andrea. Two large red foxes went running by me in my yard today, and I only wish I had been ready for them.

  • Andrea Petersen

    Andrea Petersen said (5 Jan 2011):

    LOL, Richard, Are large foxes in the habit of running by you in your yard? I think I might run the other direction as they sometimes carry rabies...I will never forget trying to photograph a mother raccoon with her babies several years ago at my folk's home place that were in their yard and the mother with her offspring chased me right to the door ..She came about 6 inches into getting into the house and that is no exaggeration:) I will never know if she had rabies but I was just glad I escaped without getting bitten.

    LOL, Andrea. The foxes came as a complete surprise. I have seen one or two in the neighborhood (and we live in a metro with 1 million people), but these guys were big and they were fast. The've probably been eating pizza and fries!

    Aren't they just precious? Dogs really do bond to their "masters" whom they consider the alpha of the pack (if they've been trained properly.) I love the tones in this great photo too, Andrea. You really were in the right place at the right time. Such a gorgeous shot!!

    A cute shot of these two very focused dogs! I love the sepia too. Down here in FL, we can't leave our dogs in the car for even a short time, because the sun heats the car so fast...even in Winter.

    I love the intensity of their stare waiting for their master's return! I bet they will have got the 1000 year welcome when they returned, even though they were just gone for a minute into the local store! That's why we love dogs!!
