Just because she’s beautiful.

Today is Billy’s first Gotcha Day, how the year has flown by.
It’s also his tenth birthday. Happy Birthday Billy!
Our vet thinks Gilmour is a bit “on the heavy side” for a greyhound.
But they’ve never seen him with his muscles all pumped like this!
This year is the first time poor old Jodie has worn a coat.
As she’s ageing, she’s losing weight (partially deliberately so that there’s less strain on her old, arthritic hips) but what with that and the general slowing down, I thought she might benefit from a coat when it’s very cold and wet.
She wasn’t impressed!

Ham actor - the chosen one!
And the story behind this photoshoot …
I work in publishing. Our latest book has a section on greasepaint and the ‘ham actor’ and I had a photograph-sized space to fill at the end of the chapter. I was therefore faced with the problem of sourcing a colour photograph of a ham actor. Where would I find one? … Of course - at home!
So I went home, dressed and made up ‘him indoors’ and took a few snaps.
This is the one that was chosen for the book.
