ONE MORNING AT MY HOUSE IN VACAVILLE CALIFORNIA, I OPENED MY CURTAINS TO DISCOVER A DRAGON FLY ON MY WINDOW SCREEN. I THOUGHT, THIS WOULD MAKE A NICE SHOT, SO I GRABBED MY CANON DIGITAL REBEL 300D AND MY QUANTARAY 70-300MM AF TELEPHOTO MACRO LENS AND HEADED OUT MY FRONT DOOR TO TAKE A PHOTO OF THE DRAGON FLY ON MY WINDOW SCREEN. THIS IMAGE WAS TAKEN AT 70MM. BY THE TIME I GOT THERE, MY WOLF DOG, “FOUR SOCKS” HAD JUMPED UP ONTO HIS DESK THAT IS JUST UNDER MY BEDROOM WINDOW AND STARTED SNIFFING AT THE DRAGON FLY. I COULDN’T RESIST TAKING A SHOT OF THE DRAGON FLY ON THE NOSE OF A WOLF HYBRID, EVEN IF THERE IS A WINDOW SCREEN SEPERATING THE TWO OF THEM. FOUR SOCKS WAS A 94% TIMBER WOLF WITH 4% GERMAN SHEPHERD AND 2% MALAMUTE HUSKY. I HAVE TAKEN THOUSANDS OF PHOTOS IN THE LAST 33 YEARS, BUT THIS HAS BEEN THE FIRST AND FORMOST, COOLEST PHOTO OF THEM ALL. SADLY, ON JUNE 12, 2007, MY “FOUR SOCKS” DIED. I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S ALREADY BEEN 3 YEARS. I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER THE GOOD TIMES I HAD WITH MY “FOUR SOCKS” AND THIS PHOTO WILL HOLD A SPECIAL PLACE IN MY HEART FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. I ACTUALLY TOOK FOUR SHOTS OF SOCKS AND THE DRAGON FLY. THIS SHOT MADE IT TO THE “NATIONAL EXAMINER” WEEKLY SCANDLE SHEET AND WAS SEEN BY PEOPLE ALL ACROSS THE UNITED STATES. I HAD THREE WOLF DOGS FOR A WHILE, “DEOGEE”, “FOUR SOCKS” AND “SMOKEY FOUR SOCKS”. THEY HAVE ALL PASSED ON TO THE RAINBOW BRIDGE AND ARE WAITING FOR ME TO JOIN THEM. IF YOU HAVE EVER LOVED AND LOST A PET DOG, YOU SHOULD READ THE POEM, “RAINBOW BRIDGE”. BE READY WITH THE HANKY, BECAUSE IT IS GOING TO MAKE YOU CRY. BUT, YOU WILL BE CRYING BECAUSE OF THE GOODNESS OF WHAT YOU ARE READING ABOUT. IT GIVES YOU SOME HOPE THAT YOU WILL BE TOGETHER WITH YOUR LOVED POOCH ONCE MORE. BY THE GRACE OF GOD, I PRAY THAT THERE TRULY IS A RAINBOW BRIDGE. I SHOULD HAVE A NICE PACK WHEN I GET THERE.
