Black Dog Sunday

Our Black Dog had tons of fun on our recent camping trip. He ran to lakes and through meadows of wildflowers with the Runner. Then, around sunset, I played with him in the wildflowers almost every day. I adore how his fur shines and his eyes glow in the sunset light.

We feel so lucky that, despite elbow dysplasia and a number of near-death experiences, he's still romping like a puppy!

He's a funny dog. He got so jealous when I took Shyla out to play with her in the wildflowers that he couldn't keep quiet. Then, when his turn finally came, he couldn't contain himself!

Believe it or not, R was considered to be the LEAST intense of the puppies in his litter. Look at his eyes in the next photo. His focus is laser sharp.
I suspect that he's going to be a "10,000 Volt dog" (a trainer used that term for him) for his whole life.

Here's to many more wonderful camping trips with our Black Dog!


  1. I love your pics of your 10,000 volt dog... he is the king of focus. that first shot is just so beautiful. coat and head and eyes. Jake was born a 10,000 volt dog to, but is now down to 1,000

  2. We agree R does run on 10,000 volts.
    His expressive face amazes us, he is always so happy.

  3. R your furs are gorgeous and your eyes...OMCs mom says they are like chocolate pools and she wants to go swimming in them. 10,000 Volt dog I love that term. Dang right if you gonna romp might as well do it at high speed. Shyla and R are beautiful pups and your photos capture all their love and joy for life
    Hugs madi and mom
