A Smile a Day – Day 16 – Dogs and Kids

Brady and Kids

Going through some old pictures I came across the picture at the top of the page.  This was taken in the summer of 2006.  We were at a place on Cape Cod that took dogs.  Some friends stopped by for the afternoon with their 2 kids.  As I was showing them my newest camera, an Olympus E-1, the kids were playing with our white Boxer, Brady.    It’s funny because nobody realized i had taken a picture until I sent them this.  I like the picture because it can be any kids and any dog, it does matter.  It is the play that is the same.

    Not quite any dog. Not all dogs will go for the tug of war with a frisby. Our Border Collie only chases tennis balls. Refuses to chase sticks and I don’t think he’s seen a frisby. He is utterly ball obsessed and that’s it. I’m not sure how Lady would go with a frisby. Will have to test them out xx Ro

      This wasn’t a Frisbee, it was a big fake tongue. But yes, I get it, different dogs play in different ways. Fiyero is a big ball dog but Idina doesn’t get the concept of a ball. When I take Fiyero out on his own I take a ball with me, but when Idina is out the ball stays in so that they play together. One common thing, though, is most dogs I’ve seen love kids and want to get them to play. When I said “any dog, any kids”, I was more saying that this photo is kind of generic, it is about the play, not the individuals who are playing.
