hot coffee + muddy tennis balls

December 21, 2012

Last night before the sun set, I decided that instead of our usual walk, it would be fun to play in the yard with Maggie for a while. It’s amazing how much dogs love to play, how much they love tennis balls, how much they love dirt. And it’s equally amazing to watch how excited she gets every time the ball is thrown in the air, eager to see where it lands and hopeful that she can catch it in her mouth before it hits the ground.

These are a few photos I snapped during our play time out back…


The muddy tennis ball she so loves.


Hot coffee to keep me warm in the chilly evening air.


A glimpse of our little game of fetch.


My adorable, curious, playful pup.


The last bits of the transcendent hour, always magical and moving.
