Half and Half
So what happens when I go in the yard to take pictures? A miniature pinscher goes on full alert to guard me as I carelessly walk around the yard, oblivious to all the dangers that could be out in the street – like Mom’s pushing strollers and worst of all, old Grandma’s taking a walk and minding their own business. He will protect me!
What I liked about the photo was how it divided his face in half, which is also the theme of this week’s photo challenge, which was to share an image that has two clear halves, literally or figuratively. To see how others interpreted the challenge, click here.

I am a backyard adventurer, philosopher and observer, recording my life in journals and photographs. Visit my blog at www.livingtheseasons.com.
My centurion was 5 pounds of fighting white fury “furry” too! They are an inspiration as they do not know their size relative to the danger. Love this photo thank you for sharing.
They’re such tiny terrors, aren’t they? I was in an apartment by myself for a while (as we were moving) and although he wasn’t big enough to actually be a threat to anyone, he was fierce enough he’d have given me time to get away and try to protect myself. I’m glad you enjoyed the post and thanks for stopping by.
Adorable photo!!! I love your Beagle too! Found you over on http://talesfromthebackroad.com/ and now I am one of your newest followers! So nice to meet you!
Thanks Dakota (Caren) – it’s nice to meet you too and I enjoyed looking around your blog. You’re quite a cute dog, although be careful if your Mom gets bows in the house. Your blogging friend ended up with bows in her hair – cute, but a bit embarrassing.
Thanks for letting me know how you found me. I’ve done the same – I see bloggers who show up consistently and I check them out. I’ve made a lot of good friends that way.
hello dogear6 its dennis the vizsla dog hay i think sumwun is keeping an eye on yoo!!! ok bye
And he’s sneaky about it too!
I love the ears forming a right angle. The picture is so geometrical, and he’s blending in
Thanks Phil! I was just taking pictures at the time, but when I looked back at it on my computer, I was struck by the same thing. It turned out really good, but you do have to look to see him.
Life without a dog would be terribly dull. Enjoy your faithful companion! Great photo!
It would be dull and a lot less cuddly. Thank you!
Nicely done! :)
Thank Robin! I’m glad you liked it.
You nailed it with this one!
Thanks Tina! I’d actually uploaded and put it into the beagle post right before this when I realized it didn’t really belong there and it fit the weekly challenge much better.
I think he felt invisible.
He is. . . until the mouth starts up. Then EVERYONE knows he’s around.
…..and I like the light on the wood.
Thanks Colleen! It had really appealed to me also. I want to try and do some work in Topaz with the filters and see if I can’t make it into a really dynamite picture.
I know without a doubt you can do that. :)
He knows his job!! Nice response to the challenge, Nancy!
Thanks Tiny. Yes, protecting me is his mission in life. And no one has entered the yard uninvited either!
Clever picture. At first glance I though there were two dogs in the picture.
Heee, cute dog!
Thank you! Sally is a good looking dog also – I enjoyed her pictures!
