Snow Owl

There was no snow in Syracuse today, so I decided to go to some places that had snow. Along the way, I stopped in Oswego at Breitbeck Park and was blessed to see a snow owl.  I believe this is a young owl as my research indicates that the young have dark spotting which is predominate.  The adult males are almost pure white, while the females retain some dark areas.  This fellow let me get within 20 ft of him/her and I was able to capture a glimpse of the Oswego Lighthouse in the background.

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.
