Bug Hug

I thought it looked like this little Red Milkweed Beetle
was giving this plant a sweet hug. :-)

The Journey

Reflection's Shadow

The doctor said he was wrong, and
the voices in his head weren't real.
But, he knew better, for
he could see its shadow!

Remember When I Said

I'd stop posting macros of dew drops?

I totally lied.

Just Because

I was in the mood to see some flowers
against a beautiful blue sky.

Pet Rescue and Boarding Ideas

Let's see...

The title of my blog is "My Dogs Keep Me Sane".  I run a weekend blogging photography meme called "Camera-Critters".  I post photo after photo of wildlife, bugs, birds, and critters.


You think I like animals much?  Yeah, what was your first clue?

If you read my Life List post from New Year's Eve, you will see that right at the top of the list is to run a dog rescue.  (There's a link in the link bar at the top of my blog for my life list)

Well, I don't want to discriminate against other critters.  I mean the ultimate dream is to run a dog rescue, but once I've got that underway, I'd love to expand to rescuing other animals and even to provide animal boarding services.

I'd want to really provide a great service with my dog and cat boarding though.  I'd provide photography services of the pets, walk and exercise time, indoor play areas, and more.

If you care about your pets, it's hard enough to have to be separated from them.  It's not just hard on you, it's hard on the pets also.  So, you would want to place that would provide them with comfort and a non-stressful environment. 

Yes, if I were to actually have the opportunity to do something like a rescue and boarding facility, I'd want to provide a fun 'home away from home' for the critters.  After all, that's what I'd want for my pets!

My Camera-Critters post this week is different than my norm, by then again,
I'm hoping that the 2013 year is going to be different (in a good way, of course)!

You've seen this photo before, but this is a motivational poster I created based on my word of the year for 2013 - "Believe".

It's three days into the new year... day three of 2013.  I promised myself that I'd make more of an attempt to live up to my own expectations of myself this year.  I promised myself I'd try to set aside the self-doubt... push that inner demon, who always pops up and criticizes, aside and try to prove it wrong.  All I can do is try, right?  If you don't try, then you'll never have the chance to prove anything to yourself.  There is no opportunity to succeed if you don't try.
So far, I've submitted photos to a yearly contest, and I've submitted photos to a magazine photography call-out.  Will anything come of either of these actions?  Maybe not, but at least I know that I tried, rather than just talking about it or making excuses.
Yesterday, I returned to work, and I was pretty wore out yesterday evening.  I didn't do anything after finishing the work for my second job.  That's O.K., as long as I don't lose focus of my promises to myself.
What do you want to happen for 2013.  Have you set goals or resolutions?
