Beautiful day

Ball stealer, originally uploaded by phaird.

Wow, I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day. The sun was warm but the wind was cool. No bugs around and everyone was just happy and enjoying themselves. It was an average busy day but so nice.

Toby was being good too. I brought 2 balls today just in case. This dog ended up with one which I expected to happen. It's a rare day when I show up so prepared.

I was also being shadowed by a student from SESOP. She needed to photograph and interview a professional photographer. My ego got a big boost from that. When she first started taking photos it was while she was a dog walker. Now as a student she would like to find others making a go at it. It's not easy but, to me, there is no better subject matter (well, except my on family).

I'm heading back outside now. This day can't be spent in front of my computer, even if I do enjoy entertaining my blog followers.

PS. for those locals who want to see photos of Acton, MA, check out this Flickr group.

Well, that would be the infamous Loralie, and I'm surprised she didn't get both of Toby's tennis balls. I've seen her with 5 balls in her mouth at the same time, none of them her own. It's all about the theft for her. She's a polite little thief though, if you take hold of her collar and ask her to drop it she will allow you to remove it from her mouth without so much as a growl.
