Outtakes from Cady’s Valentine’s day photo shoot after our hike. This is what happens when your model gets distracted and bored.
All in fun. I thought you would get a laugh from these images. She’s very easy to take photos of. Today we had a warm up and there were lots of distractions from birds and insects.
And here’s the photo of Cady that was posted to all of my social media accounts –
We’ve been really busy and my human hasn’t had time to get to this blog and post my new photographs. I finally nudged him enough that he got it done tonight. I hope you like seeing what I’ve been up to this summer and at the start of fall. BTW, he got a tattoo of me on his arm. Right above the dog paws and names of his Labrador Retrievers that have traveled to the rainbow bridge. I think I look pretty sharp in ink – Cady
Of all the photos, I have saved of my dogs; I think I cherish the goofy ones the best. The ones where they are just acting like dogs and most people don’t get to see.
Behind Cady is a Poke Weed plant. Yes, there is a song (Poke Salad Annie) about it written and performed by Tony Joe White in 1969 and then sung Elvis Presley in 1970.
It’s poisonous. The toxins in Pokeweed, depending on what source you’re working from, range from deadly to mild.
With caution, young leaves and stems in the spring, before any red has crept into them, are harvested by legions of foragers and boiled in at least two changes of water, discarding the water afterward.

Have a great 4th of July weekend everyone! Here are a few photos of Cady in her Independence Day accouterment.
I’m doing all right, getting good grades • The future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades • I gotta wear shades
One of the things I like about taking Cady (the dog) for walks is the plant and insect life I get to see and enjoy. Just a few of the photos from our walks.
Just a few new photos of Cady from our early morning Sunday walk. I love her expressions.
