Q: So how many issues of JPG magazine were produced?

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

Found Bruiser,at least that's what he said his name was, and his dog Zeus at Chickamauga Lake in Harrison,Tn. Chillaxing in a big way . Chair in the water,shades, brew in hand,dog in his lap. I stood at the edge of the water and asked if I could take his photo. He said help yourself,so I did. I took several photos after Zeus settled down. He was quite aggressive at first,which accounts for the chain no doubt.Bruiser,the guy, actually began to howl at Zeus when I took this photo.The look on this dogs face was priceless.Mine too probably. Just when you think you have seen,and heard it all.

    LOL....I'm not sure of whom I'd be more afraid--the man or his dog!! I admire you for staying after the dog showed aggressive behavior---the chain looks pretty strong, but the chair does not!
