Shyla asked me to include the next one because, for once, she appears to be taller than R!
Just after the sun disappears, the light is perfect for photographing a black dog. That's when I took the next one. The setting sun is still glimmering in the trees behind R.
R is such a high intensity character. In this photo, he is staring at the meadow, trying to see if any rogue rabbits or other animals have dared come out. His intensity is his hallmark - one person called him a "10,000 Volt Dog". That is, until he can snuggle with Shyla or a human - then he's the most mellow dog you could ever meet!
