I love this photo. I have a few others where Atlas is in focus, but they just weren’t right. This one seems to capture what it’s like to watch a dog in his element. For Atlas, this is the woods, particularly when there are squirrels to be chased.
I do wonder what the squirrels think when they see a dog hunting them while his jaws are firmly locked around a stuffed toy squirrel (the stuffed squirrel usually comes along on our noon walk). Are they worried? Or are they laughing? I guess I’ll never know.
