I love dogs (and cats - but I'm allergic to them). I read a lot. I love to study. I work 4 days. I had two dogs, but sadly Muppet (a white-with-black-spots French bulldog (female)) crossed over the rainbow bridge on September 18, 2012. Fortunately Bailey, a black Lakeland terrier (male) is still around to be a terrier in every way. ;-)
I bought my digital camera mid october 2004. Untill then I was not really into photography. But now that I have entered the digital era I am rapidly becoming addicted to shooting pictures, editing them and sharing them on Flickr.
I am delighted to have met so many wonderful people on Flickr. They are the main reason that I have become so addicted to Flickr!
Another growing addiction is my weblog. Sorry: it is in Dutch....

"Truus shares the whimsy she finds in life through the eye of her camera. Her two assistants, Bailey and Muppet, ensure she never runs out of fun material. Her genuine care and interest in others are a reflection of her friendly spirit that can be felt over the miles and straight through the computer screen. I am pleased to have found such a wonderful friend."

"Truus lets you get a look at her life with all the
wonderful things in it!
I love the shots of Bailey & Muppet!
And her wonderful boots!(smile)
Truus is a warm person and a great dog friend,
creative and enterprising!
Glad to have you as a Flickr friend Truus!

The Pack says:
"Truus is an explorer whose friendliness shines from her photographs. Whether she's capturing the antics of her sweet dogs, the natural beauty of her neighborhood, or the images of her life, her spirit and humor is evident. She shares the stuff of day-to-day living, and her photos make me feel as if she's just next door and not across the globe. Have a look at her stream, I think you'll get that same impression."

"Truus’ photostream is not just a loving record of the wonderfully entertaining and mischievous adventures of her two furry companions. More than that, it is a celebration of the simple beauty she finds in everyday life. Her photostream is like tucking into a delicious meal - it leaves you with a big grin on your face!"
