A few nice small dog breeds images I found:

Life is good. Fall is here. There’s a crisp in the air and a crunch under my toes as I walk. The wind is picking up and the trees dance as I sleep. It’s a nice change. I’m…happy. Possibly genuinely happy. That hasn’t happened for any real length of time since…early 2007. I’ve had spurts for a week or so…but it always ran away. So this is kind of cool. My head feel clear, which again, hasn’t happened in a very long time!
I’ve been reading quite a bit- lots of Coleridge, which has been nice. There’s something about poetry that just ‘fits’ with Fall.
I’ve spent the last month getting through Mark Batterson’s "In A Pit With A Lion On A Snowy Day". I normally go through books relatively quickly, but this is not a ‘fast’ book. It’s pretty short- right around 175 pages, but there’s so much good stuff in there that I feel like I’m cheating myself if I read more than a few pages at a time. There’s a lot to absorb. It’s a book I’ve been meaning to read for quite some time, but with how God works, I just now picked it up.
And that’s good. Because it’s resonating majorly right now. I ended up having to open up a notebook and keep it with me as I go through it, because there’s so much there that you’ve got to write it down in order to go back to it.
I’m probably only getting like…20 pages a week right now- which sounds weird…but again, it’s not your typical 175-page book!
The pup is growing up and getting a bit of sense knocked in his head haha. He’s nearly lost all of his teeth now- and he’s finally starting to sleep a bit through the day which makes a HUGE difference. I’ve always loved him, but I wasn’t prepared for how horrific toddler-hood would be with an (apparently) already crazy breed. (After we got him, we started hearing horror stories about puggles lol). So yea…he’s growing out of that and finally becoming a ‘dog’, and it’s awesome!
I’m still in the midst of my ‘break’ from photography…and I’m enjoying it. I’ve been going back through Lost (..yes…again haha!) I’ve made my mom start watching it, and now she’s addicted. So now we’re about to hit the last 3 episodes of season 2. Needless to say, I’m still loving it.
Just thought I’d throw a photo up and let everyone know I’m still alive. I’m totally behind on internet stuff- but I don’t know…I guess I’m kind of taking a break from my ‘typical’ life over the last year or so. Everything has been photography- everything has been flickr and internet and all of that…it’s nice to just step away and regroup. It’s like…all of a sudden, for absolutely no reason, I don’t care about anything I used to care about- photography, concerts, Flickr, internet, etc…it’s kind of confusing, but TOTALLY refreshing! I’m kind of figuring out where everything ‘goes’ in my life, at the moment.
I shall indeed be back. I might start posting photos in smaller doses soon- I guess it depends on whether or not I start taking them again, eh? :-p

Countless dogs are without homes and in need of assistance. These are dogs who would make wonderful and faithful companions if only they could connect with the right person or family. We have made it our mission to help them do this. At the same time we hope to enrich the lives of those who adopt them.

Image by myoldpostcards
This is one of the fewer than 1,000 1970 Dodge Coronet Convertibles built. According to the owner, the car was originally painted green with a 318 V8 and an automatic column shift. It has been extensively modified and is now powered by a 440 6-Pack.
Photographed at the 2010 International Route 66 Mother Road Festival held in Springfield, Illinois on September 24-26, 2010.
You are invited to stay and browse through my stream. Here’s a quick index to my little corner of Flickr:
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.)
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 "countryside") 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.
The Illinois State Fair: My collection of photographs of the Illinois State Fair. The fair offers something for everyone. Grab a corn dog and lemon shake-up, and come take a look!
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:
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.
