I’ve never had a dog that mugged for the camera. Teddy and Molly were no exception until yesterday. We were at the beach–the two girls running free, in fact, I had lost track of them. The tide was rising and I noticed the surf had covered the dry beach we had just walked on. I called out their names as I approached an outcrop of rocks. As if by magic there they were, standing side by side on a boulder as if in a pose. This is the only time our two rescue dogs have stood still, off leash, for a photo. I emphasize “stood still” because Teddy avoided direct eye contact. But it was a special moment, nonetheless.
