I'm Ready For Duty Master! - Beautiful dog - Southland by 


(Canis lupus familiaris and Canis lupus dingo) is a domesticated form of the gray wolf, a member of the Canidae family of the order Carnivora. The term is used for both feral and pet varieties. The domestic dog has been the most widely kept working, hunting and companion animal in human history. The word “dog” may also mean the male of a canine species, as opposed to the word “bitch” for the female of the species.
Dogs were domesticated from gray wolves at least twice. They must have been very valuable to early human settlements, for they quickly became ubiquitous across world cultures. For instance, it is believed the successful emigration across the Bering Strait might not have been possible without sled dogs. Dogs perform many roles for people, such as hunting, herding, protection, assisting police and military, companionship, and, more recently, aiding handicapped individuals. This impact on human society has given them the nickname “Man’s best friend” in the western world. Currently, there are estimated to be 400 million dogs in the world.
This beautiful Shepard dog was out walking with his owner in our rural village, not sure exactly which breed he is.

I’m Ready For Duty Master!

Mans Best Friend

I know you can’t help but love me!

My Teddy is sleeping! – Newfoundland

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.

    I can’t believe how much information you have on all your photos – I’m lucky if I remember to push the shutter down much less what/where it was taken
