A Commodore, Komondor, Big Dog, Great Dreads

In addition to bumping into Paul Revere yesterday, I shot a komondor. She happened to be a well trained sweetie, but that is not always the case, so don't go rushing up if you see one, although the temptation will certainly be there.

She (I hope she's a she, I was too impressed to ask at the time) was camera shy, and understandably reluctant to have her picture taken, since she is often pursued by paparazzi. Her owner said that she doesn't shed (now THAT would be a major problem), but she is quite the dust mop. Things catch in her dreadlocks continuously. Autumn is the worst season for picking up debris. I would like to borrow her for the afternoon sometime, and toss a ball under all of my beds for her to retrieve.

I wish I had had the presence of mind to take a short movie, so you could see her dreads in motion. Love that cut.

Photo note: Quite a good pose given her feelings about modeling, though that may be a dirty look for all we know. My camera is teeny
