O.K., so this is a photo blog, that will deal with landscape, travel and nature photography for the most part. But, I like many facets of photography, one being photographing my own dogs and any other mutts I come across. So in the interest of breaking things up a little bit, and keeping things light once in awhile. I figured it might be worthwhile to chronicle some of the interesting and maybe not so interesting adventures of Wallace and Angus. Besides, on those really frigid winter days, or when I’m in a creative slump, I can always point the camera in their direction.
Episode 1: The introduction
Personality: Laid back, not easily impressed, a creature of habit
Hobbies: Eating, sleeping, running in the park
Wallace is a 9-year-old Chocolate Lab. mix. He was a rescue from the Winnipeg Humane Society, found along a highway west of the city. In the photo you’ll notice he is missing an eye, due to a year-long battle with a fungal infection known as Blastomycosis. Other than appearance, the disease has had no long-term effects on his health. Blasto. has a fairly high level of re occurrence, but after 4 years he is still disease free.
Personality: demanding, greedy, center of the universe complex
Hobbies: Following me everywhere, tracking, rolling in stuff
Angus is a 3-year-old Yellow Lab. His ancestors were English Labs. bred for hunting, he is strong willed and can be a handful. Since we are not hunters, he and Wallace travel with us often on photo excursions instead.
