    Your portraits of the dogs are masterpieces, Jim. All dogs are beautiful in one way or another. I wish we could take them all. If you ever come across a lurcher, please tell us. Our Drzl (pronounced Drizzle) is a lurcher, and we would like to find a young one to enjoy the race in the woods with her. They are half greyhound, and run very, very fast, up to 35-40 mph. Lurchers are "different." They are quite comical with a language all their own, and also become frightened of very unusual things, such as a coat hung on a door knob, flapping paper bags, etc. But if you do learn of a young lurcher, please let me know. And know that your efforts to help these dogs does not go unnoticed!! You are a saint....I'm sure St. Francis smiles down on you!

    Patty, thanks for saying that, but I'm just trying to take good portraits of the dogs with lots of old lenses that I collect. The ones doing the real work are the people in the group who go out and find these dogs in time at rural high-kill shelters before they might be euthanized. They bring them up here and foster them or find foster homes for them, as well as bearing the expense of their care and feeding. A whole lot of hard work goes on, most of which I don't have anything to do with.

    I just like taking their pictures and it makes me happy when one of my photos helps draw someone to a dog they like enough to want to adopt. Taking the pictures is fun for me, so I'm really not working at all.

    Ruby is a beautiful hound. I agree with Patty. Your beautiful portraits make each dog irresistible. It is always so sad when a dog is given up by its owner.
