It's Saturday. What are you doing?

I'm trying to figure out how to use my fancy camera.



By the way, can you believe that we are asked constantly if Baxter is an Irish Setter? Does he look like an Irish Setter to anyone? He's a very trim, deep gold golden retriever, but I think he's pretty far from a setter. Down in Virginia, these "field line" goldens aren't all that uncommon.

Interestingly, one of my favorite sources for golden retriever commentary (who actually noticed Baxter!) has found documentation that the reason goldens look like big, blond bears these days might be an "Irish setter inferiority complex". The originals looked a lot like Baxter.

  1. Oh gosh - so cute - what a great expression! (so jealous of your camera)

  2. I'm heading to the Habitat ReStore to see if I can find scraps to build with, rather than going to Home Depot.

    He does look very red in this photo, but definitely not like a Setter.

  3. Baxter is presh!

    And what kind of camera do you have? My husband just surprised me with a Canon EOS Rebel T1i and I'm a little nervous about taking pictures with it! It's SO different from my little point-and-shoot! Do you have any suggestions or tips? I actually just wrote a post about my new camera the other day, so feel free to stop by or shoot me an e-mail!

    Oh, and I'm spending my Saturday cleaning the house and preparing for a few days in New York with my family!

    Hope you're having a great weekend :)
