random sightings when we are fortunate to have our eyes open

Tonight i was doing a Tango video chat with my girlfriend, Pam and we were talking about my new puppy kashie (we get him on Monday!) Anyway, one thing lead to another and she showed me a little video she took of a darling little Shar pei puppy that she had seen at a local pet store. It made me remember this story and these wonderful photos I took to accompany that story. I've never published (blogged) these pictures before and i don't know why; because to me, they are amazing. I've thought about it, but never got around to it. So she motivated to start scouring my hard drive for them.

here's the story:

a few years ago my mom and i were on a road trip. the trip started in Dallas and would end in Tucson. (She had recently left my house, after spending the holidays here and was driving back to the west coast. So I decided I would fly out to Dallas and continue to drive with her to Tucson) We were making our way to Patagonia, Arizona, where we wanted to photograph hummingbirds who were beginning their migration. Well, it seems we arrived a tad early in the season, so we didn't get to see too many hummers, but we did a lot of driving around. We went to Patagonia Lake and visited the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, where we did get to see many species of hummingbirds flying around in their habitat (i have some amazing photos from that too!)

As we were driving around the little town of Patagonia, I yelled out to my mom. "Stop, Mom - Puppies!" (quite loudly) to my astonishment, there was a tiny little house with a dirt yard and 7 Shar pei puppies (plus mom and dad). What a sight! I don't know why it struck me so, but I doubt i 'll ever see that again. I adore these photos i took, but again, i could be fondly remembering that special trip.


  1. What a fun trip we had! So glad you posted the pictures of the darling puppies! Love, Mom

  2. Kecia, I saw these on your flickr . They are so gorgeous!!! Is that what kind of puppy you are getting Monday?
    Merry Christmas,

  3. These are the most adorable photos in the world!
    I love the wrinkled darlings to bits, but to have them in Oregon unless they have a covered run would be a real problem. But they are adorable and such a placid attitude.

    I hope you are all having a great time and that Tuck is doing fine. Your boyfriend here sends his love and of course, I send mine as always.

  4. kecia...they are way to adorable, awesome shots...thank you for putting a smile on my face... xox ;0)
