Family Photos

By LynneJoyce  
It is lovely to view other people's family photos and photography is so important for collecting and preserving those moments and memories. I don't have any family in the conventional sense apart from one cousin with whom I have occasional phone contact. So I started to think about what constitutes family for me. The answer is easy - Ansel.

Here is a post devoted to Ansel and to his family whom I visit regularly at his farm of origin. We occasionally meet his litter mate, Zeus, featured in V's 3, 6 and 9.

The opener is a shot of the cute (if demonic) puppy who came into my care in the Autumn of 2017. The rest consist of solo shots of him - V's 2, 5, 8, 11 & 13, and shots of his family of origin, V's 1, 4, 7, 10, 12 & 14.

Thank you for viewing and I hope that you enjoy viewing at least some of these family shots.

A joyous set Lynne and a lifesaver for you.
Loosing all your family and the two dogs in recent times
was a terrible loss - so glad you found your new companion.

I hardly ever took photos of the family, Lynne, but always took pictures of the dogs Smile.
Your lead image is charming, and at least he is staying still.

I see, it seems that Ansel family members love water, is that the reason that you take him to the swimming pool?Grin
The V7 one looks very strong, and he(she) has lovely ears, does he(she) "talks" a lot?
