I've been spring cleaning. You know, it's that time of year to look through the closets at things that are seldom used and hold a yard sale on Ebay. One of the things I don't use much is my old Canon T90 35mm film camera. In fact, I haven't used it in over 15 years. So before I listed it on Ebay I decided to run a small roll of film though it just to make sure it's in good working order. I just took some random pictures, not really planning anything. As the camera clicked and whirred, Roxie, our English Shepherd was following every sound with her eyes, not wanting to miss any of the goings on. After all, this camera just might have to be herded somewhere and put in it's place if it decided to run amuck.
What really struck me was just how beautiful that fuzzy little pup from last summer has become. She was so small when we first brought her home she fit in my grandson's lap with room to spare and barely reached our Pyr's knees. Now she rules the roost. Nothing escapes her ever watchful attention and she stands ready to make sure every other critter obeys the rules. But, of course, the rules are not meant for her. Queen Roxie is above all that.
