On the last day of this month, my trusty Minolta DiMAGE Z1 will have been with us for a year. It didn’t take us quite a full year to take 10,000 pictures with it. Having three dogs around tends to use up a lot of shots to get even one decent one. Below is the 10,000 image with the Minolta.

A slightly better shot from the series is the following. Today’s Life of Jalo is from the same series, the look on Jalo’s face was priceless at the time when he was trying to get the treat that Anna was using to get Flippe to stand still. Oh, and BTW, a Flat-Coated Retriever’s tail almost never stops – at least when treats, or frisbees, are available.
