Perspectives of a Lady, Gentleman & Dane

Charlie The Dane

Hannah’s foot is finally healed up and we can now go out and explore. Its been a long few months where we couldn’t go hiking which means my exercise was mostly at the dog park and running with Brian. As long as I am exercised every day I am a happy puppy but I especially love running off leash out in the wild. We had the opportunity to spend last weekend up in the Catskills and had a good time just relaxing and enjoying the outdoors.

Hannah took a lot of photos and I wanted to share them, especially the many she took of me. Hope you enjoy!

I wanted to get some more inspiration for animal photography after my hike with Charlie the other day and came across this adorable website filled with photographs of Maddie on Things.

Its so inspiring to see such beautiful photos and a very well behaved dog. I wish Charlie would stand so still, maybe some training is due for her in the near future.

The photographer behind all these photos, Theron Humphrey, also worked on a great project called Why We Rescue. Check out all the amazing photos he has to offer.

I made a promise to myself and to Charlie that once the weather was warmer we would try to get out and move more. Especially since injuring my foot I have let laziness take control of my exercise habits. So even though it was a rainy few days, I decided to make the best of it and off to Ramapo Reservation we went, and in the end was very happy that we did.

Here are some photos of our rainy adventure:

After my last dog, Maggie, passed away, I would long for another pet companion, but the most often would be when I lived in Ventura and would venture to the beach. So of course once Charlie was in the picture we went on many many beach trips. It was very sad when we went on our last beach trip before moving to the east coast, especially because I was afraid we would not find as many dog friendly beaches out here.
