Ran into this friendly pup named Harriet at my local dog-friendly tavern & post-softball game hangout, Corner Bar. Asked her owner if I could take a picture because she’s the spitting image of my boss’ late great Portuguese Water Dog, Millie, and I wanted to send a photo along. Harriet’s owner informed me that she adores having her picture taken and would even pose upon request. Here’s Harriet’s best “sit” look.
Sure enough, after I snapped the photo – Harriet followed me for a bit, hoping to do some more modeling. She likes the photog attention. My dog, not so much. Although my sister Meg did capture a great shot of him smiling during a “former roommates” picture (Danny, me & Hank the dog shared a Ukrainian Village apartment for a few months back in 2012) at the park after the game. Look at the smile on Hank. Looking right at the camera, too. Best pic he’s ever taken.
