Staying Cool

Summer is in full swing, and the heat and humidity are certainly not holding back here in Florida. Buddy and I prefer to stay inside to beat the heat, but Olivia likes to go outside even in the climbing temps. Not only does she like to play outside, she also enjoys sunbathing, as does our other Boston, Penny. Olivia has found a good way to cool off while she’s out in the heat, though. We have a kiddie pool on our lanai, for my niece, and Olivia will hop in the water to cool herself. While Buddy views pools, even tiny ones, as a torture device, Olivia loves them! She can cool off in the pool, play in the pool, and drink out of the pool. And when she’s tired of being in the water, she hops out and sunbathes again.

How do your pets like to stay cool in the summer months? Are they like Olivia, who prefers pools or the beach, or like Buddy, who loves air conditioning and cool tile floors? Enjoy the images of Olivia’s cool-down methods, then leave a comment below!

Just look at those crooked Boston teeth…

After pool time, it’s naps with Penny. Such a hard life, right?

HSSC Adoptables Dogs & Puppies

Yesterday I spent part of the day at the Humane Society of Sarasota County, photographing several adorable dogs that are up for adoption. HSSC is filled with some amazing dogs and cats, all waiting for families to call their own. There are many puppies available for adoption right now, too. I photographed two adult dogs during my visit to the shelter, and the rest were precious, playful puppies! If you’re looking to add a dog to your family, young or old, visit HSSC or your local shelter. There are countless animals in need of homes, and they have so much love to give. Adopt!

Project 52 | Details

This week’s Project 52 theme was right up my alley. We were challenged to capture “Details”–wet noses, fuzzy paws, wagging tails, sweet eyes. When capturing detail shots, I always zoom in on the eyes, especially my Buddy’s big brown eyes. But this week, I decided to focus on the nose and paws, which are showing signs of his age. Buddy’s face, neck, paws, and even his belly are all flecked with little white hairs, making him look like a distinguished old man. Sometimes the white hair reminds me that there aren’t many years left with Buddy, but that doesn’t get him down. He acts as happy and lively as he’s always been, and I treasure every moment with my big Budawud. He’s the best!
