Isn't she a good looking dog? I took her to Big Bear, her first overnight trip out of town. I think she enjoyed the great outdoors - the lizard pouncing, squirrel spying, and all the new aromas to sniff. Here we're resting in the shade. There was an orange backpack in the bottom right corner of this picture. Fortunately the background to the backpack was white (over exposure of parking lot not in shade turned out white) so I just whited out the backpack, as well as a car in the background near the trees, for a nice unencumbered dog portrait.
