Camera Critters - Pets of English Friends - October 2, 2010

Camera Critters - Pets of English Friends - October 2, 2010

These are photos, taken six years ago, during a visit to my dear friends, Steve and
Jenny Clark, who have a wonderful 15th century farm house in Rye.  We met when we
were tablemates on a southeast Asian cruise in 1997 and those twelve days just flew
by.  Over the past thirteen years, they've been to San Francisco twice, I've been to
England at least four times and we've met up twice in Barcelona.  They've always had
Great Danes and an assortment of other "critters".  I just came across these pictures
and thought they'd be perfect for today's blog.

Oh, yes, to answer today's Camera Critter question, I just celebrated my first blog
anniversary in September!!

I am  participating in Camera Critters - join in the fun!

    Great photos. I've always loved hound dogs. Happy Saturday. :)

  2. Carmen -- Thanks for visiting my blog. So nice to "meet" you! I see I'll have to add you to my list.
    Your friends' critters are wonderful. If we didn't have such a little hobbit house of a place, and if we weren't in travel mode, I know we'd have more animals. I keep threatening to get the dog a cat of her own, but it would be asking too much of my husband's daughter to take care of both of them while we flit about. Fortunately, the grandchildren adore Lindy and the feeling is mutual, so we know she's happy there.

  3. These are nice shots! My favorite, because it shows them in their natural surroundings, is the last. It's family!

  4. Wonderful photos, I just love the doggies.

  5. A great series of critter pics and how lovely that you have kept in touch with your friends since the cruise. Their home must be fantastic judging from the backgrounds in your photos. Love the look of that roaring fire.
