The lighting in this image is horrible, as the sudden appearance of the sun this afternoon made futile my attempt to capture all of my dogs in a single frame. Still, it was a moment of peace and happiness for the canine members of my family.
We adopted all of the dogs in the photograph, by the way, from Planned Pethood, a Northwest Ohio volunteer organization involved in pet rescue and low-cost spay/neuter programs. If you have a couple of dollars in a PayPal or checking account that you have a burning desire to see go to a worthy cause, consider donating to the group.
I have worked with many volunteer and charitable groups over the years, and Planned Pethood by far delivers the most bang for the donated buck. The group uses almost every penny of the received donations in programs that directly benefit rescued animals and that reduce the overpopulation associated with unwanted pets.
