Dog days

My dog Lucy is about 5 or 6 years old now. That’s approaching middle age for a canine. I’ve almost forgotten what it’s like to have a puppy around.

Recently I shot Brandi Hovet of Stockton taking in some sun on a bench at the Weber Point Event Center with her dog Basco snoozing by her side. Although Basco was a fairly large dog Hovet told me he was only a year old. I first expected him to be perky and alert to my presence as puppies are wont to do. He did wake up to take a look at me and I thought I would have to wait for a long time for him to lose interest in me and fall back asleep, But when Hovet told him to go back to sleep Basco lay his head down and his eyes quickly shut. Whenever the shuttered fired his eyes would sleepily open a bit only to close again when I stopped shooting. I remembered that, while puppies can be great ferocious balls of energy, when they run out of gas they can really crash, so I only fired off less than 10 frames and then let a sleeping dog lie.
