Your Say

I wonder if it is true that people look like their dogs?

I wonder if she enters them in ugly dog contests?

That term "rescue" is just obnoxious. I suppose its noble in one sense, trying to get people to pick up a pet from a shelter. But ultimately its just an ego boosting bit of nonsense. You didn't "rescue" a dog from the pound, you adopted them. There's nothing heroic or exciting about your actions. They weren't in a place of evil peril, they were being fed and cared for. This isn't a rescue.

She had a few good pix of dogs without the fancy-shmantsy lens work. The rest of 'em are too distorted for my taste. Sometimes gimmicks cover up bad work.
