Moon Dog

The spectacular moon and clear skies had me rushing home from work this week to grab my camera and telephoto lens.  Next to the hounds, it's one of my favorite things to photograph.  It's not officially a full moon until tomorrow, but this photo taken yesterday shows that it's almost there.

Since I'm on the topic of the moon, here's a photo of some artwork a friend's husband did.  I was really impressed and asked his permission to share it on Dogs Rock.  Jokingly, he said, "If anyone likes it, tell them it's for sale for $300.  I really don't think they would part with it though.  If so, I might buy it myself!  Thanks for letting me share Moon Dog, Taylor! 

Please join me in this week's Saturday Pet Blogger Hop, hosted by Life With Dogs, Two Little Cavaliers, and Confessions of the Plume.  It's a great way to connect with fellow pet lovers!  If you haven't had a chance to register for the Dogs Rock prize of Paw Paw's dog treats, please visit the Holiday Giveaway Hop for Pets.  You can enter to win through Thursday, Nov. 25th, and there are links to other participating blogs with lots of pet prizes up for grabs!

  10. Stopping by on the Saturday Blog Hop again. Another great post. I LOVE the picture your husband's friend painted. Wow! I bet he could sell it! Would that's look great above a fireplace mantle? Although, if you are correct and he couldn't part with it, I would completely understand why.
