A Man and His Dog

I am so lucky in that I live just a couple of minutes from this wonderful beach......I really do need to make it there more often, you just never know what you will see.
This man is a local wind surfer and he has just taken up paddle boarding with his 10 month old puppy. I asked him if you could paddle by a couple of times since his puppy kept wanting to sit, he was more then willing to try and finally on the third pass I got this shot just before his pup decided to park his butt down again LOL.

What a great silhouette capture Karen of a man with his best friend, if that's a 10 month old puppy I hope he has a bigger board when he's full grown, LOL. #11500023

Thanks Jeffrey and yes he is a big boy for 10 months. He jumped off the board and swam to me and he is a over sized goof that is for sure. He should not grow much taller, just beef out a bit. #11500025
