Owner's name: Ann Traynor-Plowman
Breed: Aussie/Basset hound mix (maybe!)
Hobbies: Watson loves belly rubs, squeaky toys and just chilling out with me anywhere I am. He also loves meeting new friends and loves everyone!
Why this photo caputures Watson's spirit:
Watson is one of those dogs that people are drawn too when they see him. He absolutely loves all the attention and he definitely knows how to works it! He is a shelter dog. The rescue group I volunteer with, pulled from a local high-kill animal shelter. I soon fell in love with his calm and loving energy. He is now a certified therapy dog and enjoys helping children learn to read. He's also very smart, so now he is learning agility and loving it! In his down time, he loves to wrestle with his two adopted canine siblings and every night after dinner, he has to play fetch with his squeaky toy otherwise he will stare at me and pout. He is such a character and I love him so much.

Huki (Hawaiian word meaning "Pull")!
Owner's name: Gil
Age: 3 1/2 years
Breed: Siberian Husky/Malamute
Hobbies: He loves to run after a thrown tennis ball or a rubber chicken and return it for another go. He also enjoys swimming at the beach.
Why this photo caputures Huki (Hawaiian word meaning "Pull")'s spirit:
Huki at 1 month old was selected by my Granddaughter from a litter of eight pup's. She mentioned that her decision was based on his mask and blue eyes. Since then, family, friends and people in passing always give positive comments like, "what a good looking or beautiful dog you have." However, due to his weight and size today, my granddaughter said, she will not pose with him like the attached photo shows. Huki is a good watch dog, does not bark unnecessarily due to his sharp senses. But when a stranger approaches, he will growl and show his fangs until he senses no danger. What is hilarious at times is his "howling" with the state monthly emergency siren test.
Owner's name: Desiree
Hobbies: Matilda loves giving kisses, snuggling, "dancing," wrestling w/ "the boys," watching squirrels, ducks, & deer, & playing with her favorite toy 'Lamb.'
Why this photo caputures Matilda's spirit:
Towards the beginning of autumn, all of the leaves had just been blown into a pile, & just like I wanted to do - Matilda jumped right into them, prancing & jumping through the leaves seemingly with wonder on her face & relishing the feel & noises of what she was doing. She always seems so aware of nature around her & wants to be a part of everything she observes. Like many adults, I fought the urge to jump into the pile of leaves -- for a moment anyways. I couldn't resist doing so as I watched her "swim" through the leaves, jumping about in wonder despite barely standing a foot tall. Soon I too was laying in the middle of that pile as she pranced in circles around me, stopping to give me un-prompted kisses on the nose, and making a memory that demonstrates exactly what her spirit is - pure, eager, full of wonder, sweet, & wanting to share whatever she has or whatever she is experiencing with others. It was a perfect moment.
