Commitment: the state of being emotionally impelled to do something. My commitment is to making art, loving life and doing well.

Daily Artworks... my continuing challenge for 2015: Observe and record. Record and observe. And stretch - s-t-r-e-t-c-h - myself.
What will I discover?

Gone to the Dogs - Day 17

Play-fighting and Play-biting  

Play-fighting keeps dogs sharp for real encounters    
- they think it's just a game    

Dogs who play-fight and play-bite are able to practice a range of dominant and submissive displays which they can use in encounters with other animals that they are meeting for the first time. This puppy-style romping and running around is still lots of fun for adult dogs. And it's great exercise, too.

o snap! I love the instant you caught in the frame where I can see the tops of Spirit's eyes above the Casper's muzzle. If it weren't for that, it would look a lot more serious. Even so, one heckuva action shot!!!
