Artist's Description

WHENEVER I TAKE MY CANON EOS KISS REBEL 300D CAMERA INTO MY BACKYARD WITH MY KIDS, I NEVER KNOW WHAT KIND OF IMAGES I’M GOING TO COME UP WITH. MY HOUSE IN VACAVILLE CALIFORNIA, IN THE UNITED STATES, HAS A 1600 SQUARE FOOT BACK YARD THAT IS PARTIALLY COVERED BY A 500 SQUARE FOOT PATIO THAT IS COVERED FOR SHADE. THAT’S WHERE I HANG OUT, IN THE SHADE. SO, BY THE TIME CHEWBACCA AND SASHA HAVE GONE TO THE BATHROOM AND I’VE EITHER HOSED IN THE PEE OR PICKED UP THE POOP, THEY GET INTO PLAY MODE. TO THEM, PLAY IS LIMITED TO THE SPACE AVAILABLE, SO THEY MAKE THE MOST OF THAT SPACE. AROUND THE STORAGE SHED, ACROSS THE PATIO, ACROSS THE LAWN. IN THIS SHOT I CAUGHT “CHEWBACCA TROTTING BACK” FROM THE BACK SIDE OF THE STORAGE SHED AND KEEPING A WATCHFULL EYE OUT FOR SASHA WHO WAS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE SHED AND HEADING FOR HER REST SPOT, UNDER MY GROOMING TABLE THAT I BUILT FOR GROOMING MY HIGH CONTENT WOLVES, SO MANY YEARS AGO. NOW, IF I GOT RID OF THAT TABLE, I WOULDN’T HAVE ANYPLACE TO SIT FOR ONE, OR PLACE MY WATER COOLER FAN ONE IN THE SUMMER FOR TWO, BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, SASHA WOULDN’T HAVE A SPOT TO GET AWAY FROM CHEWY WHEN SHE NEEDS TO. YOU SEE, CHEWY CAN’T GET UNDER IT. SINCE SASHA IS A LITTLE OVERWEIGHT, SHE NEEDS TO CATCH HER BREATH EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE, BUT AS SOON AS SHE DOES, SHE GETS RIGHT BACK INTO IT WITH CHEWBACCA. SHE CUTS HIM NO QUARTER EITHER. IN THIS SHOT OF CHEWY, THE TIME FRAME IS JUNE OF 2009. HE IS JUST OVER 15 3/4 WEEKS OLD AND WEIGHS RIGHT AT 62 POUNDS. HE IS SMART, FUNNY, AGIL, CUDDLY, GORGEOUS, LOYAL AND DEDICATED TO STAYING CLOSE TO WHEREVER I AM. CHEWY IS A 75% SIBERIAN HUSKY AND A 25% TIMBER WOLF. I’M USED TO HAVING HIGH CONTENT HYBRIDS, CHEWY IS DIFFERENT THAN THEY WERE, BUT SIMILAR IN SOME WAYS. I SURE WASN’T EXPECTING THE SINGING AND HOWLING, I’M GLAD HE DOESN’T HOWLE AS MUCH ANYMORE. THE SINGING I CAN TOLLERATE AND HE TALKS A LOT TOO. I USED MY CANON EOS 300D KISS REBEL TO GET THIS SHOT, ALONG WITH MY CANON 75-300MM AF IS MACRO TELEPHOTO F:4/5.6:1 LENS. THIS SHOT WAS TAKEN AT 150MM AT 1/400 SHUTTER, F:7 APPERATURE.
