Dogs are always a popular subject on this blog. So I’ll share a few dog shots with you today and probably tomorrow.

My family went to the Oregon State Fair in Salem on August 30.

I had fun trying to capture the “Air Dogs,” or dock dogs, in mid-jump as they launched off the dock into a pool when their handlers flung a floating toy.

It was challenging – not only to capture the dog, handler and toy at the perfect moment, but also to keep my camera dry, since the dogs landed with huge splashes!
