The Rocky and Ginger Show

The photos from my first doggie photo shoot are complete!   I'm calling this the Rocky and Ginger show because I swear they were putting on a performance....but, you be the judge.

Noble Fir

I may live in the "Evergreen State", but that doesn't mean I know my trees.  This one happened to be marked as Noble Fir, which is why I know what it is.    The Noble Fir is a beautiful evergreen with sparse needles, but it was never lucky enough to go home with my family when I …
