A “Thomas”
experimenting with the 50mm 1.4 nikkor lens wide open and a shutter speed of 1/3200 second.
Straight out of the camera. Undiluted and unaltered and no photoshopping:)
The extreme depth of field is on purpose to enhance fluffiness.

5 1/5 years young and still looking like a puppy.
I caught this sensible idea today: “If therapists didn’t charge you and were willing to chase sticks, they would be dogs.

Thomas with Miss America, originally uploaded by Aiko, Thomas & Juliette.

Katie Stam (miss America 2009) was so kind to pose with Thomas and Juliette.
Juliette is not happy with this much competition. She seems to think: “I thought I was the prettiest one on the block!”
To the right is Katies dog (half Pyr and Collie)

Liriodendron tulipifera

my tulip tree seems to be recovering after so many seasons of herbicide spray drift.
This year, major changes in spray application are in effect and it shows already.
Nothing can be done to the damage of the past but at least we are hopeful that the faulty sprayings will not continue and the trees will slowly recover.

ball of cotton

ball of cotton, originally uploaded by Aiko and Thomas.

So far it’s been an experience this week.
Juliette is a real trooper considering all the new things she has to cope with.
15.4 pounds at the vet this week. A visit both of them enjoyed a lot despite the needles and sprays. She’s now 22 inches head to tail. (This for future reference)
Run over by Thomas and me a few times, eating bad stuff and puking. Dealing with Sissy, who only hisses at her. Then she wouldn’t eat so I made fluffy pancakes with a little honey for her. (thomas liked that too)
Today she was startled so much by Thomas coming in the house, that she jumped hard and twisted her front paw. But after a few minutes limping, she jumped again and ran of, like nothing happened.

changes, originally uploaded by Aiko and Thomas.

He actually let me nowadays brush him without complaint. No leash or words needed. Do you think he starts apreciating the treatment?
One more change in Thomas’ behaviour: Since Mag is gone he started to come inside in the early morning and crawl in bed with me.
