Our rental townhouse in Dewey Beach has big sliding glass doors and windows, and I love the light that, while they face east and not north, comes through them. While we were biding some time on Monday morning before we all headed home, I got a picture using my iPhone and Camera Awesome of Kali lying on one of the few remaining dog beds.

Normally I don't particularly like overly processed pictures, but with this image I went ahead and had a little fun with going against the grain.

Several weeks ago I was contacted about a photo I had taken of a senior greyhound during GIG on Saturday. Jasmine was her name. She fell ill later and died the following day.

Her owner was told of these pictures of her, and was very thankful that they were taken.

I didn't know what to say when I found out about her passing. She was just here -- and now she's not.

One week ago today I saw a Facebook posting from the Greyhound adoption group we've adopted all our hounds and learned by Pie Sky (profiled in this post) had passed that day due to a possible heart attack. She was just five years old.

I had thought it might have made an interesting picture if I was able to have both Katie and Pie pose side-by-side. Unfortunately I'll never get that chance.

Rest in peace, Jasmine and Pie.

Violet and Heyokha

Heyokha (on the right) gradually got the nerve to rest his head on Violet's thigh. He need not have worried: she never paid any attention to him but continued to nap during that windy Sunday afternoon at Dewey.
