..... is a Golden Retriever. One
of the most lovable dogs one could ever wish to meet. He has been well trained by his owners Brad &
Heather A, who live in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria.
Indy is a frequent visitor to our home - and
is always most welcome.
He is only now just in his 3rd year.
A wonderful companion dog, he is very obedient and well mannered.
But - he wasn't always that way. Which
is understandable. When just growing out of puppy-hood - he had much to learn.
Below are 3 photographs I was lucky enough to
capture at the time of the (now well known) 'event' which took place in our lounge / dining room.

trying to use different lighting that was available - while allowing this little performance to continue !
I took quite a few more snaps at the time, also trying a couple of different camera settings, which was a rush job for
obvious reasons. These were the best of the lot.
All photographs have also been reduced in size from the

Unfortunately, (although you won't see them here) there was a grand argument started up between the extreme religious
in community and the not-so-religious. I can't personally see why that could happen or why it should happen.
(Some people leave some ridiculous comments on these videos and should be ashamed of themselves !).
It is simply - a beautiful experience, and one I found
extremely relaxing. Thanks to the original photographer Jon Rawlinson - to be found at http://jonrawlinson.com.
One of the most beautiful videos
ever come across.
Delightful, joyous and
just maybe a lesson to us humans ?
If two such different creatures
can be so protective
and caring of one another - why
can't we find this
in our human world, more than
we do now ?
