Every year I AVOID shopping on Black Friday…I just can’t handle the mayhem, lol. So, today I went out to photograph wildlife. I brought our new pup, Earl with me and he had a good time looking out the window at all the cattle and birds.
The lighting wasn’t great, it was really cloudy and overcast but I still had a good time and got a few shots I liked.

He should top out at around 32″ tall (at the shoulders) and 165 pounds. Which should be about the same size as our male Gunther, who we had to put to sleep this past summer. I miss Gunther terribly, but Earl is so much like Gunther…it’s like having him back
Earl is also getting along wonderfully with our 9 year old female Great Dane, Duchess. I think she did enjoy being an only dog for awhile, but I’m realizing now she did miss having a buddy...Read More
