  2. Form! Muscle! Style! Perfect ears!
    Stand back Naples, stand back world. What a Tzuri.
    I must say, when Tzuri’s emails come through I am all grin before the computer heats up enough to open the page, then filled with the delight of her, and your delight in her, and this fabulous creature growing up before our eyes.

    Don’t know how it’s possible she is 8 months already. On the other hand, hasn’t she been in our lives forever? Anything pre-Tzuri is only a blur.
    She’s brethtaking, John. I’m eager for the full Naples report, and don’t leave out a single gasp or sigh from the public meeting her for the first time. Nice work, Dad. The infant is unbelievably fine.

    • We went as spectators to our first obedience and protection dog trial, and Tzuri was (hopefully) impressed with how well all the grown-ups performed. The rigors of Schutzhund obedience involve heeling off leash through a crowd of people, ignoring loud gun shots, leaping over a 6 ft. wall to retrieve an object, running out on a send-away, downing and staying for long minutes while other dogs mingle around, etc. Tzuri has a lot of pup in her yet but she got a taste of what’s in store training-wise for her. This is the club (Ft. Myers FL) that we will probably join shortly. Thanks, as always, for you enthusiasm, Barbara.

      • Picturing Tzuri’s taking all this in the way a very bright child would, led by the hand to a really excellent university campus. Her first connect with higher learning. Very exciting. It must be incredibly stimulating for her, for both of you, filled with challenge and the undercurrent of exacting primal response, all senses electrified. I’m so pleased to read about your voyage.

  3. Fabulous action shot! Crisp detail and her eyes steal the show. Looks like there is a close bond between subject and photographer 🙂

    • I am fortunate to have the time to spend every moment with her, and we have bonded well. Thanks…
