“There’s Life in the Old Dog Yet” Photo Challenge – Photo Contest 2018

This photo challenge celebrates the old dogs in our lives, those wonderful souls who might have a bit of gray in their muzzle, but can still teach the youngsters a thing or two. They know how the household works and like routine, but they’re not above a bit of larceny, themselves.
The prize for this contest is a fabulous pewter and/or copper etching created by Walker Works in the breed of your choice. Print reproductions of these etchings don’t do them justice. They are truly beautiful works of art as owners around the world can testify. It has been generously donated by Betsy Copeland.
