Begins with D

For Our Daily Challenge: Begins with D (dogs!)


My sister's dogs, Sammo the dachshund and Bandit the ???. Bandit is only a year old and full of energy, but Sammo is 13 and in declining health. Since I only see him once a year, I'm getting more shocked by the drastic changes in him each time I visit. I really love that little dog and am sad to know that each time may be our last.


I'd be curious to get some opinions on something: I considered straightening this so that the line in the sidewalk was more horizontal, but that made Bandit too close to the edge of the photo. But I sort of like it a bit crooked like this -- what do you think?
