I think our digital camera is really on its way out sooner rather than later. This photo was one of three that I had to coax it to take, and sadly, it's the best one I could get with both dogs visible. You see, The Boy met a great new friend today -- Jack, a 16-pound terrier-beagle mix, who is absolutely adorable. And the two of them played very well, and we hope to find a time when they can romp around together again soon.
They had a grand and wonderful time.
They sniffed and jumped and rolled and sniffed and play-postured and chased and sniffed.
But you wouldn't necessarily guess that from this picture:
They were actually playing beautifully at the time this photo was taken. It just so happens that the very, very delayed shutter on the soon-to-be-ex-camera caught my sweet little The Boy in a most unflattering moment. And the red-eye problem doesn't help, either.
So, here's a quick and grainy video I took immediately after that shot to prove that yes, they really were having a blast.
