Gussie was a poser - loved the camera.
He would strike a pose and remain there
until I had taken the photo. He would
then move back to his normal sleeping position !
Or if he was sitting, would then simply "move on"
but not until after that photo had been taken.
I have literally dozens of photo's of him
.... he was such a good subject.
A 'staged' photograph - one of dozens I took by
aiming the camera (ever hopeful my aim was good)
and throwing a handful of fallen leaves in the air.
Gussie would always jump to catch them - he loved
this game - it was just a matter of clicking at
the right moment. Took
a lot of practice and rolls
of film to get just a few really good photo's of him
doing his thing with the leaves.

Have camera - will snap.
I frantically scrambled for the
camera to get this one.
Timmy seemed so very
interested in what was under that hat.
Never did find out what it was.
Was too busy laughing to think about

Gus again ...
This was taken on a very dull day with a
Fuji DL-80 35 mm camera. Gus was
sitting at the time beneath a small tree
peering out. I was never sure why the
detail of the leaves did not show, however,
the photo itself is quite dramatic -
a one off lucky shot
When the photo scanned it was quite dark,
so I have lightened it a little to exactly what
like in the photo, and put a blended frame
around it in Photo Studio 5 in my computer.

(this is the original
photograph - no touch ups,
no cut and pastes, just another
capture on camera. - I
have however cropped
the photo to make it a bit smaller)
Our sweet Murphy.
Here she is with her little charge
Oscar. (our Oscar) Every night
would wait until Murphy
laid down for a rest - then he'd
start - washing her face, eyes
and ears. Did this for 10 minutes
or more. It was precious to
