A busy day

march-5th-2008.jpgWe got some great fresh new snow on Tuesday night making our winter scenery fresh and bright. I met a reporter, Jake Weyer, from the Southwest Journal last week at the coffee shop. He was there to meet with another person but asked if he could follow-up and talk about the dogs and do a walk with a group. We met yesterday and I guess I may have been expecting a much more low key event. He showed up with still and video photographers, needless to say there was a ton of distracting activity going on as we began our walk.

Dogs don’t do well with face to face greetings. Unlike humans and other primates, they prefer to smell first then sidle up next to another dog or person. When one of the photographers started walking slightly in front of us and dropping the camera to face level I watched the dogs closely to insure that there were no adverse reactions. They all acted like old pros and for the most part were able to ignore the cameras.

There were some questionable photographic opportunities. The beginning of the walk is generally when the dogs will relieve themselves and there did not disappoint. I really hope they don’t run a photo essay; Dogs Pooping, but they sure have the footage to do just that.
