shore: Thank you! I am glad you liked the neighboring farm photograph. That place is one of my favorites and I often stop for a photo of it while doing my run from the ranch up Sherman Road.

Oreo is a neighbor's dog. She will often give a greeting bark as I run passed her place. Today she was out on the road and I stopped for the photo and to give her a little neck scratching.

Funny that you searched for Shadow. I actually thought about that when I titled the photograph. Technically, except that it was as a title, Shadow could have been shadow if I had used a sentence to describe the picture!

Oh, my! That pic of the neighboring farm is splendid! And I love the slide show of the animals. Jonah just has such a look about him - sort of abashed.

And who's Oreo? You've got a new one? Have I not been as attentive as I should have been? Wonderful looking creature - but so different! I thought it was one of the cats when I saw the name, but nooooo.....

And I am such a doofus. I saw the caption "Titan and Shadow" and spent a bit of time looking for the other dog. ;)
