~ Lens-Artists Challenge #178: You Choose ~


Our wonderful beagle, Jello, was born on the Winter Solstice eleven years ago. She came to live with us when she was four. The young man who gave her to us had her papers from Maryland, so we know her birthday and that originally she was named Blue, likely due to her blue-tick coloring.

Among her favorite activities are running free and sniffing – always that nose is busy!

When riding in the truck, instead of settling in for a nap, Jello likes to watch the world go by out the window. She knows when we’re going to the beach, and savors big whiffs of the salty ocean air, as we pass through Astoria!

Taking me for a walk every day is her one job, and Jello is very conscientious about this duty!

Although fishing is “not her thing,” being with me wherever I go is a must.

After all the activity (and sometimes right in the middle of it!) another of Jello’s favorite things is snoozing – or as we call it – snooze cruising. 🙂

I’ll close with one of my favorite photos, Jello silhouetted against the golden dune grasses at sunrise.

Thanks to Tina and all the Lens-Artists hosts for giving us creative purpose and focus.

🐾 As we enter the holiday season, please continue to be kind and stay safe.🐾
