It Is Alphabe-Thursday time once again. Our Rumbustious teacher, Miss Jenny, has given us our assignment. We are to explore the letter "R" and find something that expresses our innermost "R"ness. I am certain that our Raucous class will answer to this Righteous quest with everything from the Rare, to the Recondite, to the utterly Ridiculous.
My "R" post is easy for me. He is not rare(except in my heart), nor is he recondite. He is on occasion a bit ridiculous. He is Reuben, my wonderful little, black Miniature Schnauzer.
Reuben will turn five this November, and has been in our family since he was about 10 weeks old. MrsC gave Reuben to me for my birthday, February 2006. She always says..."Reuben is the best present I ever gave you...", although I might argue that her love would be first on my list...Reuben next, of course.
How did I come to name him Reuben? I sought to reflect his German ancestry with his name. I have to admit to a bit of a struggle to find a German boy's name that rolled off the tongue. "Reuben" seemed to have a certain feel and sound that fit this little guy. I find him a perfect subject for my photographic endeavors, and quite photogenic, although often not terribly cooperative. I hope you enjoy these pictures, and I encourage you to visit with our other students and their often Rapacious witticisms. Go to jennymatlock.blogspot.com to peruse their work, and perhaps you too will want to join the class. Better late than never.
Peace and blessings...
