Bella Grace knew what was coming. Our other Wheaten Terrier, Jelly Bean, had already disappeared from sight.
For more photographs of our Soft-Coated Wheaten Terriers, visit my "Everything Wheaten!" (Set).
You are invited to stay and browse through my photostream. Here’s a quick index to my Flickr site:
Central Illinois (except Springfield): Central Illinois (except Springfield): Photos relating to the middle section of the "Land of Lincoln" (except for the Capital City of Springfield) may be found in this collection. Every city and town I’ve photographed is contained within its own set, and rural (as in "counrtyside") photographs are grouped by county.
Springfield, Illinois: All of my photographs of Springfield and the Abraham Lincoln Sites are in this collection. For the City of Springfield, there are separate sets for the Capitol Complex, Downtown (including the Old State Capitol), Neighborhoods, Parks, Illinois State Fairgrounds (and past State Fairs), and more. Photographs of Lincoln sites include the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, Lincoln Home National Historic Site, Lincoln Tomb, and so on. Also in the Lincoln "All About Abe" (Set) are a few Lincoln sites not located in Springfield.
Beyond Central Illinois: Other locales in the United States and Canada including New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Seattle.
In addition to my location-based sets, here are links to some "topical" collections and sets I’ve put together:
Automobile Photographs: This is a very large collection of images whose primary, but not exclusive, focus is on American automotive classics. Images are organized by decade, by manufacturer, and by topics (such as convertibles, station wagons, muscle cars, etc.)
Barbers & Barber Shops: Traditional barbers and barber shops are on the endangered species list. But there are still plenty to be found if you go looking for them.
Almost Everything Else. Check It Out!!!: Included topics range from man’s first walk on the moon to small town schools and churches, and from Soft-Coated Wheaten Terriers (our favorite breed) to things that are abandoned, neglected, weathered, or rusty.

pe of his head, with thelong ears closely placed on the very apex, and the beautiful,wide-open eye with its long lashes. The nose, always twitch-ing, is blunt and short and pink, the nostril very small butof a very decided shape, and the muzzle rounded and full.The hind-legs are of an extraordinary size, but gatheredtogether in a hunched position as Bunny sits in a hutchnibbling morsels of food they are not so noticeable ; the spinerises from the head in a long steep curve from the neck to thetop of the thighs. There is nothing more soft and fluffy than the tail of arabbit— Cotton-tail, as he is called in America. So softis it that we must indicate it with the most delicate touches,noticing the way in which the hairs grow from the root of thetail and spread outward and upward like the down of apowder-puff. By drawing our small friends, rabbits, squirrels, frogs,birds, and cats, we shall be aided in attempting, presently,the more ambitious creatures, dogs, cows, bulls, and horses.100

Our Pets and other Animals Horses are of all animals the most difficult to draw. Totheir exquisite proportions, the wonderful delicacy of theirslender limbs, the spirited grace of their beautiful bodies, wefeel, despairingly, that only a Rosa Bonheur, a Lucy Kemp-Welch, or an A. J. Munnings can do justice. Let us study first the heavier breeds, the big dray-horseswith their kindly frank faces, their great fetlocks, their splendidmassive bodies. These will give fascinating subjects whichneed not overwhelm us. If you have no opportunities of sketching the cart-horse inthe farm-yard, you may possibly make a rapid sketch from awindow, or track your subject down in a side-lane, as I havedone in this drawing. The positions of my two cart-horses are foreshortened.The long bodies are hidden by the hind-legs, and the finishedsketch is nothing more nor less than a square, from the upperpart of which extends the neck and crest of the head. As I have said before, when drawing things foreshortened
