Our lives with our granddog, Georgie, continued over the holiday season as her family visited the United Kingdom and beyond for two weeks. This golden retriever has us just the way she wants us now; she completed our training last summer.
Georgie's visit coincides with my reading of the book, Fifteen Dogs by André Alexis. I am enjoying the book and can understand why it won the Giller prize. The fifteen dogs with human intelligence created a unique glimpse into humanity as well. So in homage to Mr. Alexis and his wonderful book, I am doing fifteen photos of one dog with human commentary, I'm not sure how intelligent it is.
Can I bring a few sticks in next week?
I like this ball but forget the lights.
Why do you always put these crazy things on my head?
Who is this Santa dude I have to thank?
My jaws are tired and I need a drink, please.
I don't know why people like this shower business.
Are we there yet?
What do I have to do to get this treat?
There's got to be a better way to pee.
How long did I get?
Nature calls again.
I just want a hug.
She forgot the crackers this time.
Playing in the snow is even better than a walk.
It's cold. I'm glad she covered my ears.
