My family on Monday went to the coast for the day. At Agate Beach this little dog, along with another terrier, ran full speed ahead for the waves. When their owners called the dogs back I had time to crouch and shoot only a couple of quick frames.

And I do mean quick.

For having stubby legs, this little guy could really fly over the sand, which is what it looks like he is literally doing here, doesn’t it?

As for composition, I do wish his little pink toes weren’t quite so near the edge of the photo. If I were one to spend a lot of time editing with Photoshop I could fix that. Also I cropped the photo. I wanted only the dog, sand and shadow to tell the story – in this case the story of one little dog’s exuberant joy.

    If this dog’s name were Jordan… he’d be air Jordan.
