Red and Purple and…Where’s my dog?

Fresh on the heels of mixing black and brown, I thought I’d try another unlikely color combination: Red and purple. I purposely chose a blueish-purple cardigan with a deep red dress. Tomato red and violet would work, but would be especially bold and bright. Baby steps!

I set up my tripod in the parking lot of Frankie’s vet, where I was dropping him off for day boarding. I thought he’d make an excellent prop for the shoot, but he was camera-shy.

I’m so glad I’ve discovered day boarding. When I go away on vacation, I take Frankie to Doggie Care Resort, a great small-dog, kennel-free place. He stays in a lovely couple’s home at night and plays in their secure, fenced yard during the day. They’re too far to travel to for a day visit though. Until now, weeknight happy hour was out of the question; I couldn’t leave Frankie alone that long.

Now, on days when I have to work longer hours or have a dinner invitation, I can drop him off at his vet’s in the morning, and pick him up as late as 8:30 pm. He gets playtime, affection, and potty breaks, and sleeps away the rest of the day in his kennel. I wasn’t sure he’d like it but he goes in willingly and greets the staff enthusiastically. A sure endorsement if there ever was one.
