Posing with Zorro

Posing with Zorro

I have photographed quite a few people with dogs in the last few years and yesterday it was time for another such photo. I spotted Jenny with her white sunglasses in Västerhaninge. She was on her bike, and Zorro the German shepherd was walking next to her when I rode up on my new bike next to them and asked for a portrait. Jenny moved to Haninge from Huddinge one year ago. Her big hobby now is, as you can probably guess, dogs. She has two of her own, but Zorro belongs to a couple of friends. Years ago Jenny enjoyed horse back riding, but these days she's more into painting. That's all the facts I managed to get Jenny to reveal about her self.

Years ago we had a German Shepherd just like Zorro! Beautiful dog and beautiful girl and I think you were lucky to obtain as much information as you did, in spite of all your charms! ;-)

Zorro is a beautiful dog. We used to have one just like that when the children were little but he got old and very sick. I still miss him.

4 German Shepherd - all men :-) was in my life years ago. Zorro came just after, black eye rings, he was GS and Siberian Husky...
You can see him at my blog - click to the right under "my dogs"!
Sickness took him away all to soon, just 4 years old, so now I have Frederik, the first dog bought in a internat, but still what a guy. We love him, and after two years (in a few months) we hope he will top in years - he's 5 now :-D ...an Golden Retriver with some other genes!!!
