What a wonderful thread.  I love looking at these beautiful pictures and can feel my body doing the "out goes the bad air" breath. Here's my girl...my comfort dog, work out buddy and spiritual advisor.

4paws, she looks like a very wise girl.  Grew up with dogs and would love to talk to them when things seemed out of whack. They knew exactly when to cock their heads in that, "I know exactly what you're saying" kind of way.  That would always send me back on the right track.

I just now stumbled onto this thread and loved all these photographs.  Ruth, how is it that you get the photos you post to actually be 'snowing'.  They are mesmerizing, like watching a campfire.

I was always taking photos until this little hiccup in my life happened.  So GmaF, thanks for starting this thread.  Because of you, I took my camera on our hike today.  It was a balmy 26 degrees and just beautiful.  Here's my girl waiting patiently for me to catch up.

RhodyMMM, this is an east coast pic too, not far from you.

kathindc, you are right. It blows me away how intuitive animals are. 

Hbcheryl, thank you.  She is gorgeous inside and out. 

Marple - wet, muddy or rolling in something good = one happy dog!

Rhody, this is one of my favorites. Taken more than 5 years ago just before we had to put our old Lab to sleep.  I understand why you haven't changed your avatar.  I live in RI.
