Basset Hound Puppy

Photograph by Mirka Adamsky Rackova, My Shot

This is our basset hound, Howard, when he was five months old. He was always told "no" when caught picking up flowers from our garden. I wanted to make a special picture for our friend's birthday, since she dogsat him when he was a puppy. So I took a flower from our garden and put it in his mouth. Howard was so surprised that he just sat there looking at me.
