This is a re-post of a photo I took a few weeks back, of my beautiful neighbor Summer Girl. This Fall day she was waiting patiently on the outskirts of her property, sitting among the wood chips and early Autumn birch leaves as I pulled in the driveway from picking up one of the kids. I asked if I could photograph her and she shyly sat and tried to control her wagging tail. She was secretly flattered, but at the same time a little shy yet willing to please. She couldn't help but wonder if cookie bone treats would be involved in this little interaction.
