Morgan & Simon at HITS





I believe Simon is a Houdini Llewellen Setter. Morgan told us he also works as a therapy dog.

Is Simon driving the golf cart? I can see the steering wheel in one shot, and it looks like he is.

A therapy dog? Dogs themselves are therapy, they keep ya runnin', therefore keep ya young! And he's definitely a good lookin feller!

I'm a sucker for dog photos - what a gorgeous puppy. His tongue is very pink.
Love the horse shots below, too. Never a dull moment in Ocala.

Don and Krise said...

What a beautiful dog. Interesting, I showed the photos to Krise and tried to get her to guess the breed. (She knows more dog breeds by name than anyone I know.) She wasn't familiar with this one, even after I read the name.

Splendid canine photos. The colours are wonderfully clear and bright, too.









splendid

The dog, the best friend of the human. This is an excellent picture-proof.

Saretta said...

That dog is so handsome! What does a therapy dog do?

He seems happy. I am feeling better already. MB

Lovely images, a great dog in good company.

Bibi said...

What a handsome dog! Looks like he's literally ready to roll.

Abe Lincoln said...

He is truly one magnificent animal. I am surprised at his collar which can be pulled and pinches the daylights out of his neck.

He has a regular collar on so the pinch collar she must use just in case he gets an urge to take off in public.

Is there anything cuter than a big, floppy jowled dog? Dang, I miss my Mollie.

Lois said...

That is a beautiful dog! Looks like he is well taken care of too.

Halcyon said...

They seem to be good friends.

Louis la Vache said...

He looks like he's a happy hound! No wonder he's found a calling as a therapy dog!

Rose said...

Oh, my, he is a beauty! I bet his coat was silky and smooth.

Jarart said...

Beautiful, the dog and the girl.

Daryl said...

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Simon is handsome!

Trillian said...

He seems to really like being photographed...nice photos!

cieldequimper said...

Is it a magician dog?
Very nice "cart portraits"!

Chuck Pefley said...

Jacob, I'm sure you're right with your ID of Houdini Llewellen Setter ... Because I had no idea that specific breed existed, I put him visually into the springer spaniel family. But ... I am no authority and that's a fact -:)

Paula said...

Awwww, they're a pair! Are they related to you? They're both good lookin' so I'm sure they are.

melanie said...

Very beautiful !

Nice portraits of a fine smiling dog!
I had to look it up, but it's true, someone has created (or re-created) the Llewellin Setter from the English Setter. Houdini is the kennel name.
