Silver and Gold

We've been praying for rain because we've been in a drought for a long, long time. Still in the drought but we did get some rain yesterday! I noticed the clouds rolling in and took advantage of the overcast day to play soccer with my doggies in the backyard. They love to chase the ball and it gives me a reason to run around chasing after them. It makes me laugh aloud to see them bounding after a bouncing ball.

After we settled down it started to sprinkle. Here are my two dogs getting wet in the rain while they stare at me taking their picture. I imagine they are wondering why I stopped playing soccer and am now squatting in the rain with my camera.


I find it very interesting that when the flash goes off, my white dog's eyes reflect a silver blue color while my brindle's eyes reflect gold amber! For a closer look, please click on each picture to be directed to my Flickr photostream.
I love their sturdy stance and alert, steady gaze.


  1. What beautiful dogs! I love their expressions! I'm glad you pointed out the eye reflections. I wouldn't have noticed otherwise. How amazing!

  2. Thanks! They are so much fun to photograph. Tomorrow we are taking them out hiking. I'll try to get some great pics to share.

  3. They're beautiful dogs. I've always loved the coloring on the brindles.

  4. Thank Justine, I love his coat too, everyone says he looks like a tiger.

    We went on a 5 mile hike today but I forgot my camera so I don't have any pics of them on the trails. :(
