Saturday, 6 June, 2009

This is Brutus, my daughter's and son-in-law's and grandchildren's dog.  He is about the sweetest dog on this earth.  I love his expression here: one of quiet resignation.  It was the middle of a family gathering, with thirty-some people milling about, and fifteen of those were children jumping and leaping and squealing.  Ah, Brutus.  Patient Brutus.


  1. I love Brutus. Are you sure he wasn't eyeing a snack?

  2. Hmm. There WAS some guacamole nearby. . .

  3. Aren't dogs the best? My own Dixie is the opposite of Brutus (loud, rambunctious, uncharitable to baby deer in the back yard) but she greets me at the door every night like I am the best and most important person on the planet. Every single night. :-)

  4. Hi Sharon,

    My wife took a picture of our dog with your book before and after shots.

    Here is the link

    I hope you don't mind we used your book, she was reading it both times and the dog happened to be in the picture the same way, so....we grabbed the camera.

    Anyway, hope you enjoy!!
