Why I love animal photography – Ansonrecord

Nothing better than a pack of M&M’s, except when it’s a pack of guide dogs.

ATHENS, GA — One of the things I love most about Halloween is when guide dogs dress up in costumes for photography. I love photography, and one of the biggest highlights is seeing photographs of UGA’s guide dogs in training when they have their annual visit to the Athens Fire Department. They visit the fire department in conjunction with Halloween and National First Responders Day, both to celebrate spooky season in costume and honor the work of firefighters by bringing them some puppy love.
I particularly follow the guide dogs in training from my alma mater UGA because I used to babysit guide dogs in training as a student (a “camper”) in the Guide Dog Foundation branch at UGA: Dawgs Raising Dogs. They train thousands of puppies everyday to become heroes in the workforce and change people’s lives. I’m so proud to see so many of my furry friends going off to do great things, including touring the fire department for annual “puppy trick-or- treating.” Plus I also love any dog in a costume!
To tie into Halloween, I thought I would share my love of guide dogs in training photographed in their Halloween costumes. Some of the best photos are included.
Hope everyone had a “pawsome” Halloween!

All cats are more or less psychotic. Please, spare me the notes of protest; your dear Muffy is not the exception to this rule. She may bear a very different form of psychosis than my cat or someone else’s, but all cats are somehow psychotic nonetheless. Mind you, I am not anti-cat; I am merely pro-truth. I have had both cats and dogs my entire life, and our family always takes royally good care of every animal in our household.

I’ve been trying to avoid watching too much of the redistricting debate because I know what Republicans are going to do. They will maximize their advantage to rig the elections for themselves. Democrats, who are in the minority in both houses of the legislature, are powerless to do anything about it. It’s not just depressing as a Democrat, it’s a blow to our democracy.

Richard Burr has been cleared in one investigation into possible insider trading in the early days of the pandemic, but another probe has unearthed new problems for North Carolina’s senior U.S. senator. And as new revelations reminded us this week, his worst transgression might not be what he did when COVID-19 first threatened his state and country. It’s what he didn’t do.
