It has been quite some time since I have photographed dogs or canines, including coyotes, so starting again around the neighborhood is a new and interesting challenge. Almost like human environmental portraiture, photographing the dogs, perhaps along with their owners in our new neighborhood, may become an ongoing project.

Tucker is a very smart labradoodle, one of the many great dogs who are walked every day in the neighborhood. Even when he is at rest, he is always on the alert, similar to his wild relatives.
More in the "portrait" line, the two images below are vintage Tucker.

until next Monday,
