I ♥ Faces: Week 49 "Pets Only" Photo Challenge






My entry:



This is Biscuit, one of our new dogs. We adopted him from a shelter in July after our sweetheart, Dodger, died at age 14. Biscuit is such a sweet puppy - as gentle as can be. He is a fairly tall dog (Australian Shepherd and English setter mix), but he tries very hard to sit in my lap. You can also see Gabby, our other rescue puppy, coming into the background. I love this photo of biscuit - it shows his patient, loving side very well, I think. (And I love those whiskers!)



Now for a look at both of them. This photo says a lot about their personalities - Biscuit blinking during the picture, and Gabby smiling! Gabby is also an Australian Shepherd mix (we think a type of spaniel, or maybe spitz). We found both dogs through petfinder - a terrific resource! Gabby came from TEARS. For more information on the TEARS shelter, look here. It broke our hearts to lose little Dodger, and we will always miss him. Gabby and Biscuit are helping us heal, and for that we are very thankful!
