“Cody at the Lake”

“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring–it was peace.”
― Milan Kundera

This is a more personal image for me. It’s an image of our dog, Cody, as he stands at the edge of Marble Lake, where we camp. We picked him up as a rescue some ten years ago and he has been a part of our lives ever since.

I simply love this pose and happened to have my camera with me at that moment to capture this pose. I did use a plug-in to get the painterly effect, which just seems to work on this particular image. It reminds me of the paintings of English hunting dogs.

Though Cody has been limited to hunting the squirrels in our back yard, I still like to picture him this way. He looks quite majestic and is in his element. Though he is starting to show signs of his age, he’s still amazingly active and a pleasure to have around, always wanting attention, and of course, his meals 🙂

  1. What great photo for memory and I really like your processing choice. I disagree a little bit with the quote. Dogs do know jealousy.
