It seems to me that there are two groups of people: those who love cats and those who love dogs. I belong to the minority because I like both kinds of pets equally. However, I do so for different reasons. About cats I like the fact that they can be so full of contradictions – one moment they cuddle, the other moment they’re rebels who can’t be persuaded at all – and the fact that they always look so self-assured and carefree.
The thing I love about dogs is their unconditional devotion and friendship, and that they’re always ready to play and that they’re fairly perseverant while doing so. The last aspect holds especially true for puppies that don’t seem to know what exhaustion is.
During my last photo walk I noticed four of these sweet bundles of energy in a garden. I could have watched them playing for hours; but as I’d taken a couple of pictures through the wooden fence earlier, I didn’t want the owners or their neighbors to call the police because they might be thinking I was a freak or somebody worse. As photographers we’re often not aware of how strange we may look to others. 😛
