Destination: Dr. Wallace's Office

DrWallace'sOffice

No, it's not the dogs that are destined for the Dr.'s office.

This framed print is prepped and ready to hang at our vets office. This print will join another print of mine at Dr. Wallace's office -- a print of our infamous Olive the Wonder Dog (below).

We still miss Olive. She was a piece of work.

Oh Dan!! I didn't realize that was Olive! In that little print you sent me I mean, somehow I missed that.....What an absolutely FANTASTIC SHOT, and what a little sweetie pie.....I'm so in love with my three little guys and in the back of my heart have a tinge every once in awhile when I think of having to say goodbye to them one day...owwwwww.... : (

A really stunning print of your other two sweeties here, D...Really gorgeous...

That is hysterical! I know all about that airedale hair! The funny thing to me,Dan, and tell me if this isn't true for you. No matter how many dogs or breeds of dogs that you may own in your lifetime, an airedale will stand above them all in your memory because of their uniqueness. And unless you've ever known one, you would have no idea what I'm talking about. Am I right? Or is it just me?

Dan said...

H, yep, that's Olive. Hard to tell from the perspective of a fisheye lens. I was literally 10 inches from her nose when I shot that.

W2W, I couldn't agree more. She had PERSONALITY. Frankly, it wasn't always the best personality, but we loved her. She was full of life. It's funny - the things that drove me the most crazy, I miss the most. R.I.P.

I love both of the shots - at our vet's office, there are lots of those "cat pictures"... you know the ones. These are definitely cooler.

"Frankly, it wasn't always the best personality, but we loved her."...Exactly! I think it was that I had to put so much time into taming her demons (both temperament-wise and getting-into-trouble-wise) that we developed an unusally close attachment.

Dan said...

Haha...yes, I know the cat pictures, Jay. Maybe those are a prerequisite for being a vet. I've got nothing against those, they just have a "canned" quality about them (imho).

Dan said...

W2W,
Yeah, Olive had her demons alright. Isn't that funny?! Airedales are unique, that's for darn sure. Was it you that mentioned that "snapping at the air" thing? WoW. What's up with that?!?! It was like she was snapping at invisible flies. Insane. She'd have ME believing there was something flying around her head. I think she did it to torment me.

Wander to the Wayside said...

Yes, the air-snap is one of the airedale characteristics, as well as the happy dance and counter surf. Gosh, I miss Molly - even though it's been five years since she died. I'm still on an airedale rescue site, and do transport for them occasionally, and every time I get a newsletter with photos of other dogs, I have to get out the ones of Molly. Ah well...such fond memories.

Dan said...

Ahhh, yes, the happy dance...Olive was a prima ballerina at that one. She was also particularly good at opening a cabinet door to get at the trash bag. Oh, how I loved that :-/
