Happy Monday! I feel as if poor Merlin has been getting the short end of the stick, photo wise, lately, so I wanted to make up for it this week. He gets ignored by the camera for two reasons, first, he’s usually napping or laying in the exact same spot of the house each day, and the photos would all start to blend together. Second, this spot he’s in does not have the best light. So it’s not that I don’t adore the poor old man, it’s just when I spend time with him I’m usually on the floor massaging his back and snuggling in, not taking photos.
But this week? This week I made sure to document him.
I love how Ezra snuggles in and “hugs” the old guy. I also have a few frames where Ez is pulling (gently) at that poor collie’s face, but he’s just taking it. What a lover.
The other crazy thing about this week was that six days ago it was snowing like crazy, and today it was in the mid-40s and we were walking in the sunshine with hardly any snow left on the ground! I snapped this one of the two dogs playing in the backyard on Tuesday. Snow makes Merlin as frisky as he can get at this age.
This is the look Magda gives you when you take her tennis ball to get her to look at the camera. On the one hand, she *is* looking at the camera. On the other hand, she looks like a total bitch.
Oh, hello pumpkin! See how grey his eyes look here? If he’s wearing grey, they look grey. If he’s wearing olive, they look green. If he’s wearing navy, they look blue. Chameleon eyes!
We had brunch on Sunday with our friends Scott and Renee and Ezra was enamored with their kids Nora and Colin.
And here’s that sunny walk we took! See? Hardly any snow left!
Love this. It was between Merlin kisses.
And this photo shows Ezra here sitting up ALL BY HIMSELF. He’s still a little wobbly, but very close.
For your internet share of the day, these photos made me gasp (particularly numbers one, six and twelve). Also, this trailer for Mr. Holmes is such an interesting twist on the mysteries of life. I hope it gets great reviews!
