Bright Eyes

I took this photo on the evening dog walk two nights ago, when we had some lovely weather. I quite liked the composition of the photograph, but it wasn't until I started processing the photo that I noticed something else special about it. As it was in the gloamin my smartphone decided to fire the flash. I noticed the flash when I took the photo, so I disabled the flash and took another shot. After all, the smartphone flash wouldn't have an effect at a distance of around 8-10 metres. However, I was wrong. When processing the photo I noticed Neachdainn had bright eyes. Even from that distance, with the smartphone's weak flash, it was enough to create a reflection in Neadainn's eyes. As nothing else in the photo shows any flash effect, Neachdainn's eyes look mysterious. I like it.

Ticks in 2017

We take care not to expose ourselves unnecessarily to pesticides and we extend this precaution to our doggie companion. In particular, this means we do not use a spot-on insecticide or a tick/flea collar.

Scotties are great

For the avoidance of doubt, the title of this post refers to the breed of dog. It might also refer to the human inhabitants of this country, but that is a topic for another day. Furthermore, on the point of nomenclature, I prefer the breed's original name Aberdeen Terrier but most people probably know them as Scottish Terriers (Scotties for short) and that is the term I will continue to use in this article.
