Walking (by) the Dog(s)
Look at these two. Aren't they the best? The guy on the right is wagging his tail so hard the camera couldn't keep up. I know how these things go, though. I look harmless enough, so I'm okay (and I've walked by dozens of times and have never tried to go in the gate), but if I was bothering their family, they wouldn't be looking quite so happy. Good job, pups!!
Here's a Dog Fun Fact I read on the interwebs:
A dog can hear sounds 250 yards away that most people cannot hear beyond 25 yards. The human ear can detect sound waves vibrating at frequencies up to 20,000 times a second. But dogs can hear sound waves that vibrate at frequencies of more than 30,000 times a second.
(...and they can hear the refrigerator opening, or a can opener starting up, from two blocks away. It's a little-known fact. :)
