Bestest buds...

I doggy sat our son's shih tzu/terrier mix, Shyla, a few weeks ago, her and our Kashu love each other so much, it was a warm day and they were running around the yard like crazy, after each other, these two shots that I took, tell it all...

My Alpaca visit...

I mentioned last week that we had taken a trip out to a nearby Alpaca farm, I have posted a few pics of these facinating animals over the years, when the owners have brought a few into town, for different events. Last year, I had planned to go out and see the bunch of them (they have over 30) in their own surroundings. Thoroughly enjoyed my outing, asked a million questions and got some cute shots of them.
I will be seeing them a few more times this summer as Jo-anne mentioned that they are coming to the campground where we camp, in July, for our annual 'fun day' and also our photo club are planning a
visit in June to the farm for an afternoon. The owners are kept very busy as they also, knit and spin the
yarn into items to sell.
She also mentioned, she thinks two of them are pregnant, will be born in June, would be cute to get pics of the babies...
Here are some of my favorite shots...

This is what she thought of me being there...lol




 Look at the blue eyes on this gal...

Hiding behind the mask...

Our daughter and family have recently moved down to London, Ontario, although I won't see them near as much as I would like too, our visits will be fun and the photo ops for me will be incredible. Over the years we have camped at the KOA in London and we have travelled around the area alot, but it will be different now with them living there, when we go down for our first visit, in the very near future, I will have my cameras in tow and just hope that I can be as lucky as her to get one like this. (I have tried a few times to get a raccoon but they have always been quicker than I)
They are starting to move north and have been spotted here over the last few years but have been usually
'roadkill' when we see them.
Thanks Jodi, for sending me this pic, just love it so much, had to show you guys too.

Having a drink...

We went for a drive yesterday to the 'alpaca' farm, (will post next week) on the way home seen this fellow having a drink, love how the water is dripping from his mouth, he sure has a scruffy coat, losing his winter one I guess..
