No year would be complete without some photos of my daughter's dogs. Photographing black dogs is often a difficult task but here is one of the best.
She was part of this group on the same day in November.
|Scout, Cody and Gem|
As usual Scout has two balls in his mouth, one probably belongs to Gem. At 15, Cody is resting with his ball within reach. They are all looking at what's going on down in the lake where there's -

That's my ten favourites for the year.
Happy New Year to all in 2013.
