It’s always a pleasure to get notified of your new blog ❤ I hope one day you can make it to Egypt…..& I could see some of our faces photographed by You ❤

As an animal lover who’s had companionship with dogs for 45+ years this collection is a beautiful testimony to our human bond with these and other 4-legged souls
( cows, cats, camels et al)

Wonderful. Blessed eyes only can see them live action. You are one with Lucky eyes.
Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful days much more.

Fantásticas fotografías y muy buenas las explicaciones de ellas. La del perro y el hombre en Kabul me emocinó profundamente. Gracias.

Yes, they can. My dog, Murphy, is living proof of that. If we pay more attention to our other dog, Rex, he let’s us know he is NOT happy. It’s kind of funny, but at the same time, it’s a little disturbing.
