At the beginning of Summer, we took a trip down to Ocean City Maryland to visit family.  On a side trip, we decided to visit Assateague.  We had been to Assateague before, but on this trip we decided to camp overnight.  We came right about the time the sun was starting to set and after we set up our tent, wandered out to the beach where we found this group of horses grazing.  The sun brought out beautiful highlights in their manes and coat.  The animals blissfully grazed there at beach-side without a care about all the campers.  As the sun rose the next morning, we found the horses laying on the beach.  What a wonderful foreground to the sunrise.

Lessons from a Senior Dog

Nancy Kieffer

Working as a pet photographer as well as volunteering in a rescue, I have been blessed with getting to know a number of senior dogs. While I lost my Midnight at a young age, I was very fortunate to have Shamus with me for many years. Shamus was my clown, but boy did he know how to live! His wisdom grew as the years pressed on. I learned that each day spent with my senior dog was a lesson on the importance of living in the present, cherishing our bond and embracing our everlasting friendship.
