Mintie

I am finding no inspiration at all in the rain so poor Mintie was my muse today.  Mintie is the most wonderful dog - four years old next month. She is a labrador retriever which is a breed used for catching pheasants on a shoot but she doesn't do this. She is lovely and fit as both my dogs come running with me. Hettie is my other dog but hates the camera, she is a yellow version of Mintie.

  5. At what age were your dogs when you started to run with them? I look forward to doing that with Stella one day but she's not quite a year old.

    Mintie is beautiful.

  6. She is beautiful, Justine. I had a white shepard/lab mix that used to run with me. My Snow lived to be 14 y.o and was the best companion ever and the smartest dog I had ever known. Enjoy your time with Mintie.

  10. How beautifully she has posed for you, are'nt dogs just the best companions: never complaining, always want to be with you no matter what your mood, and when you get home they are so happy to see you and they show it. Oh, and your grass is so green !

  14. She is beautiful!! She is much more fit than my Ellee, who also doesn't retrieve :-) A friend once asked me if she "hunts". I told him she doesn't realize she is a dog, much less a hunting dog! Ellee will be 4 April 1. Labs just have the sweetest faces!

  15. Oh she is beautiful. I love dogs. My spoodle is a bit small to go on long runs. It would be nice to have the company. Charmaine
