Duties

by Sigrid Strohschneider-Laue November. 06, 2018 875 views

Driving from Italy to the shelter picking up the new family member; driving from the shelter back home and the next day to my parents house (with daughter and dog). It was so heartwarming, that my mother already waited at the door with a treat for the poor little doggie. The dog basket was already placed beside my father's chair.

My duties are adding up lately - doesn’t matter, at least I sleep at night before my head will hit the pillow! The new duty is to get up early, take up the leash and go for a walk with Felix. It's November, the weather is grey. Nevertheless Victoria and I introduced very street-urban Felix to the country life. He was overwhelmed and me too, because I would like to know, how dog photographers take this incredible cute or active looking pictures!

In the end I photographed some blooming (!) and very calm fields instead. I also took some pictures from a boot camp for mushrooms: Sergeant Fungus obviously was shouting at some scared recruits.

When we were on our way back home I heard the typical calls of a migration flock of greylag goose. The grey geese were almost invisible in the grey sky - there are definitely no shades of grey at all! I tried with my Panasonic my very best. Have fun finding the V-formation in the picture.

My mother told me, that the goose migration is a sign, that winter is coming. At the same evening I bought Felix a yellow jacket to survive the arctic temperatures and to find the little guy in the biggest snow cornice - now we are prepared!

Sadly I couldn't take a better picture from the geese.

I read the first lines and I laughed like a child! 
Do your parents like Felix?
And... I looked at #4 and I thought... "OF COURSE, she has found an animal carcass"... It took me a while to understand they were mushrooms! smile

Yes they do - my mother sneaked behind my back with Felix into the garage and the garden. She also tried to make him "give me your paw" and fed him with treats for every success AND failure. dog
joy - I didn't see it as a carcass, but you are so right - it looks like one!

Love the photos. Love Felix. I can see Victoria holding him so that you can take a picture. Yes I agree, I don't know how animal/pet photographers do it.  As Antonio said, Felix is a lucky dog. 🐕
