Running against the wind

Some of you wonder why the photos of the T-dog have stopped coming. It's because he has not stopped going; and going; and going. Which is of course what young creatures seem to do, no matter whether they have two legs or four. Fine. Got to challange those motor pathways, create new circuits that promote coordination, overload muscles to build strength. I'm all for play. But none of this is compatible with a digital camera slow to focus on motion, and with a lagging stutter in the electronic shutter; sometimes I miss my old Minolta SLR with the fast mechanical parts. These two images were taken shutter-priority at 125th second... not fast enough; obviously. I'll go to 250 next time.

Meanwhile, everywhere that Tsuga goes, he is r u n n i n g.... top image (ears UP) is from up the valley near our 'meditation point'; and bottom image (ears DOWN) from the pasture, the barn is in the background shadows.

(Psssst: can somebody tell me how to put these images side by side without using an html table?)

UPDATE: Thanks, Ian, who writes that the two images appear side by side in his browser. Mine too, if I maximize the window. Duh!

How about putting them side by side in one image, by using Photoshop or similar program, before you put them into the blog?

They are already side by side as I view them! (In Mozill Firebird)

Puppix! (You should trademark that, by the way.)

Oh, to be a puppy at Goose Creek.

My, that picture with the ears down is the spitting image of Sampson since for some reason Tsuga looks a lot older in that pic.
