Our host for this week's Fun Monday, Sayre over at Sayre Smiles ,has given us a simple and totally enjoyable assignment. She wants us to share closeups of our pet(s).
Meet Willie Ray, my almost 14 year old buddy and goodwill ambassador for pit bulls. Willie has had a pretty exciting couple of weeks. He got his spring bath. Then he got introduced on Facebook. He also went to the vet for his annual exam. The vet said he was in fine form for a senior citizen--blood clear, all systems operational, only the beginnings of a cataract in one eye, waist trim and tucked from his daily walks. The only problem is that he has this pesky lump on his hip that may cause trouble. But at his age we're not going to dwell on the eventualities, just enjoy his senior years doing what he likes: hanging out, eating, sleeping, and walking.
Now, here are the results of several days stalking with the camera. Notice I didn't mention getting his photo taken as something he enjoyed. Here he is resting his head on the sofa arm, wondering when we're going for a walk:

Here Willie is on KP duty. He's in charge of cleaning all containers before they're pitched. He especially enjoys the yogurt ones:
And, now for the end (ahemm-mm!) of his photo exhibition. Here he is at his KP station (the living room sofa) doing a bit of clearing. He finds that he works better on two legs for this job:
