Our mild winter has been a bonanza for encouraging walks and fresh air. In the last week I've snapped three portraits of Lakewoodites and their pups. I was so smitten with Rosie (the dog above) and her story (she was a rescue) that I forgot to get the name of her human - oh well, frequent visitors to the Snap know I often am so focused on the animals I take pictures of I forget to get the names of the people. Oh well....
Above is a photo of Princess and her human Jim - I actually remembered to ask this time! I spent a few minutes chatting with Jim - I met up with him on the sidewalk and asked if he remembered that I had snapped his photo with Princess a few years ago. He didn't remember right away, then as we were talking he had a vague recollection. We recreated that earlier pose (by the way, that photo was it was the 5th post for the Lakewood Daily Snap and appeared in June 2008) - alas, my memory wasn't completely accurate as to where Jim and Princess were on the porch.
The third pooch and human portrait is of Tino in the adorable lime green parka and her human George. I met Tino and George as they were walking on Mars - the street not the planet! It turns out that George is the owner of The Mars Bar - he says they serve up some great Gyros - it just happened that he had a photo of one on his i-phone - and I must say it looked delicious! I'm looking forward to dropping and and seeing if they taste as good as they look!
