It’s a treat for the dogs when I set up a table in the backyard and work on my book or simply lie out on a lounge chair watching them as they quietly peruse the backfield for creatures from atop their hillside lookout. Camera in hand, today I tried to sneak up on Annie and Lily. I spotted the two of them, sitting up on the hill like a pair of statues, both facing the back-most hayfield. They looked so picture-perfect sitting there together (Lily –a dark blue English, Annie – quite white). I slowly crept along their well-worn path at the top of the hill, but, Lily caught sight of me through the corner of her eye. She was gone in a flash. Annie remained. Quickly, I went back down to the bottom of the hill and caught a glimpse of Annie peeking out through the leafy green leaves. Setters love to be very, very quiet while on the hunt. I snapped my shot and let her be. I returned to my lounge chair. The scent of the nearby Lilac bushes soon sent me off to sleep!
