2 Things Challenge - Big/Little

Every spring in Birmingham there is a great pet parade called Doo Dah Day. It is an opportunity for people to dress their pets in outrageous costumes, then dress themselves in even more outrageous outfits and parade the whole group through an older neighborhood with lots of parks and winding roads, raising money for local charities in the process. Almost all of the pets are dogs of various varieties, from cute to down right ugly, teeny tiny to HUGE, and everything in between. There is the occasional groundhog or tortoise in the parade too. Needless to say, it is a field day for the local photographers. I caught these two cooling their rears on a patch of grass near the start of the parade, just waiting patiently for the whole thing to get started. They are likely father and son, and were well photographed that day.

Great photo of these cuties. But even Little is quite big, or will be some day:)

Yeah, bev, it's been about six months, so I'm sure Little is almost as big as Big by now. They really were well behaved, until some ornery dog came by and snarled at Big, at which a pushing match ensued and the owner of the other dog wound up toppling to the sidewalk. An official then sent them all away from the area.

I love it! I tried to get a big and little dog for this challenge, but the photo didn't turn out. Yours is great!

This is a great photo! But then, I'm a sucker for puppies. What's not to love about a dog, eh/
