This feature is a tribute to Dogs and especially to one dog in particular.  I hadn't heard of Riley until this week and realized the reason why.  During the time Riley was being rescued, I had been in the process of moving home from Florida after I retired from the Air Force.  So, if you have never heard of Riley who turned 4 this month on his re-Birthday (rebirth and second chance day), aka the canyon puppy, you have now.  In June 2010 Riley was found and the bottom of a 350 foot slot canyon (roughly the equivalent of a 35 story building) and the rest is history.  Now he has a wonderful life and he even has his own FaceBook page (Canyon Puppy).  Here is a link to his story on YouTube.  It is a little over 13 minutes long, but I promise you, you will not be concerned about the time.

So, here is to happy dogs everywhere with loving human guardians.  I have chosen some of my favorite photo's of puppies of all ages taken by DA artists, DA friends and a few of my own.  I hope you enjoy.

I picked up my first camera when I was in sixth grade and started taking photograph's seriously at the age of 15 in High School. I cannot imagine life without my cameras, they go where I go and it drives my family crazy. If they have learned anything at all, they have learned that if they want us to get where we are going, make sure I am not driving. Because I stop every time I see something photo worthy, which is all the time.;o)

Favorite photographer's: Steve McCurry, Michael Nichols and Brian Wolman
Favorite movies: Avengers, Red, Harry Potter, Iron Man, Underworld series, Lord of the Rings
Favorite TV shows: NCIS, Ghost Hunters, Alaska State Troopers
Favorite bands / musical artists: Alter Bridge, Daughtry, Disturbed, Rev Theory, Seether, Shinedown, Three Doors Down
Favorite books: Anything by Susanna Kearsley or Laura Vosika, Terry Brooks, David Eddings, Raymond Feist
Favorite games: Words with Friends/Wii Bowling/Chess/Mexican Train

Tools of the Trade:
Primary cameras: Nikon D3100 and D40x w/Nikkor and Tamron lenses. Often traveled w/Nikon E8700. Retired equipment: Coolpix 885 and Minolta x370 (it was my primary camera for 20+ years)

Alter Bridge is my boyfriend's favourite band. I bought him some tickets for xmas and we went and saw them in April in the city. =) I like Disturbed and Three Doors Down too. I do think however that Classic Rock and what not is more me. Though, I don't think I can say that cause I love many genres of music... I guess it depends on my mood. I used to watch Ghost Hunters but.. I think my interest in the show fizzled out. I am not exactly sure why though.  Your picture seems rather familiar to me.. I am not sure why and cannot place whom you remind me of.  I looked in your gallery and peeked at your dogs. They are adorable. I miss my pups. Two of them died one in 2012 and the other 2013. The first one was a Chocolate Lab Retriever. She was about 10ish. The other one she was an Australian Shepard and Dalmatian mix. She was  19 years old. She kept getting seizures one after the other and was losing her memory of who anyone was. It was really sad. I am particularly sad because I had moved to NY quite a few months before and never got to say goodbye. My kitty is also still in CA with my parents. She is quite quite old herself even older than 19 years. I do miss her dearly. Anywayyyyyysss lol Thank you once again for the watch and faves! I'm going to go and check out more of your gallery! have a great day!!!:D (Big Grin)

We sound very much alike, though we are a generation apart.  Love classic rock and like you I ant narrow it down, because good music is good music and it comes in all forms (still hate rap though).  I got hooked Ghost Hunters because they were more wanting to disprove instead of going in and expecting ghosts.  Go to my journal hollow even, it is a ways back...but it was my first experience with those not among the living.  As for bring familiar, I am retired Air Force and got around, but I hear it often that I look like someone else.  So sorry about your puppies.  Mine photo's are actually of family pets, my last dog died in 2006, he was the best dog ever and he died of heart failure at on 8 years old.  He was an Akita...I miss him, think I have him in my "In loving memory" folder.  I will get into your gallery more closer to the weekend...I am a busy girl.  Talk later!:happybounce:

I do like some rap but I just think it is cause my friends I had growing up were very diverse in their appreciation for music that some of it grew on me. 
As for Ghost Hunters, that is also a reason why I watched it. They tried to debunk whatever activity the people had going on before saying "omg it is absolutely something paranormal!!"
I think I also stopped watching it because I had watched something in which they were interviewed and they admitted to faking some of the stuff on the show just to make it a bit more interesting. I have had.... lots of experiences with the paranormal. Some stuff that... I wish I could explain and debunk but cannot. I am mostly skeptical but there are things I have gone through that cannot be explained other than paranormal. Ah,  retired air force!!! My father was in the air force and is now retired. I am originally from the UK (Mum is British and I was born there) and due to the military moved to Cali and lived there for a while. I don't know why you seem familiar but sometimes you can just tell that someone is ex Air Force or what not. Maybe our lives crossed paths briefly due to that? Who knows! Thank you about the puppies. They are missed dearly! I really do want another dog but for now I have to wait and perhaps in the future I will once have dog again.  I think I saw the picture in your "In  Loving Memory" folder. I will look again though.  Pets are always part of the family and their passing can be hard to deal with just like any human passing.  I have had many furry friends in my life and well I have loved each one dearly. I miss them and know at least they were loved and cared for greatly. Anywho.... I tend to ramble on sometimes lol.. I hope all is well and will talk later!! take care!
