I love dogs and have owned many. Never less than four while living in Colombia for 23 years because of that country’s insecurity at the time. My dogs have taught me to love and respect all animals, as well as to be awed by their often underestimated intelligence and feelings. I wish I had photographed them all, but I used to be too busy traveling and photographing people. I only started photographing my last three dogs, only one of which, a pit-bull, is still alive.
I wasn’t happy when one of my sons adopted it and, no longer allowed to keep it in a new apartment, he asked me to adopt it myself now. I had heard too many bad things about those dogs. But dogs are like kids. They behave according to their education and amount of love they get. Tango, my pit-bull, is the most loving, intelligent, comical, warm-hearted dog that I ever owned. He warms my heart and makes me laugh all day.
I’m posting a few of the three dogs’ pictures hereafter. To see them, please click on the previous post. To see more, please click on http://pa.photoshelter.com/c/victorenglebert, then on Galleries, and then on the dog photo.
