Images and comments from the west coast

I have been spectacularly unsuccessful in writing much of anything for this website of late, but I have tried to keep adding photos of Louie, as time permits.  I was just chastising myself for not having taken enough pictures of Louie as a puppy when I realized that he’s only 11 months old, and I have approximately 2,000 photos of him already.  I suppose that’s not too bad, but I have promised myself to take more photos of our new puppy when she arrives!

The slight reddish-brown cast to Louie’s fur on his side is the bleaching effect of the salt water!  I shouldn’t let him swim in the ocean.  If he were a show dog, this would definitely be a no-no because black Spaniels are supposed to be BLACK.  Apparently those who take these things seriously would knock off a star or two for a black Spaniel whose fur isn’t black enough.  Fortunately, though, we love Louie just as much notwithstanding!


This part of the west coast has been very wet of late – “unremittingly damp”.
