Pooch Portrait ::: 10.26.10 ::: Blue the Great Dane

Meet Blue, the beautiful blue merle Great Dane. Is he not the most stunning big guy you've ever seen? I wanted to take him home, except he's the size of my living room. Well, that, and getting him home would have been difficult as he was twice the size of my car. :)

Such a sweetheart!!!

He had a tri-paw'd brother named Monkey... so sweet!

Nothing makes me happier than capturing such sweet pooches for their owners! =)

::: The World's Shortest, Fattest Giraffe :::

Yes folks, it is true. There is such a thing as a short, fat giraffe. It is not native to the Connecticut shoreline, however it has made an appearance and I was able to document it on Halloween of all days! National Geographic will be calling me for my photos any day now. I just know it. This giraffe is the key to my big break.

I took it into my home as it seemed a little "off."

A little "out of sorts" perhaps?

It was quite interested in going into the crate I just happened to have. Odd.

I asked it if it was interested in going "trick or treating" and apparently, it was not.

In fact, I believe the fat giraffe may have been embarrassed to be outside. I really don't know why.

It did spend some time foraging for food. Grazing.

When it wanted to move, surprisingly it could really hoof it around the yard.

It did not, however, enjoy having its photo taken. How unfortunate.

It was quite thrilled to find some greenery. Sadly, its stumpy giraffe legs could not reach.

After much effort, success!

And a veritable feast.

We appear to have bonded, so you will all be happy to know that the tubby, oddly shaped giraffe will be sticking around. :)

Happy Halloween from Gretl and me, everyone! =)
