I went out today with my camera after a snow flurry – on top of all the other snow we have – and there was Martha, the community dog! She’s a Maremma or Abruzza and keeps the neighbourhood, as well as her home farm, free of coyotes.
We cringe every time she comes here because she is white, and there’s lots of snow, and she has to cross the Trans Canada Highway and walk along it for 200 meters to get here. I’ve included the colour photo of her too, so you can see what she really looks like.
Benjamin Rowe of Aperture 64 challenged me to post a black and white photo per day (you get two today!) for five days and to challenge five other bloggers to do the same. (Yeah, chain letters for bloggers…) I usually only post three times a week, so the five posts will take about 10 days, and I’ll name the bloggers on the last day.
Every time I tried to focus on Martha’s face she’d put a paw on me to get me to rub her head or belly. I’m surprised I got this shot!
