First Trip to the Catskills

A couple of weeks ago, we took a trip to the Catskills - a first for both of us.  Our only reference about the Catskills was from the movie "Dirty Dancing" where the family stays in a resort for the summer.  So we had no idea what to expect.  

We rented a cabin in Andes, NY at a remote location and toured the neighboring towns during our stay.   We saw beautiful farms, open pastures, waterfalls and creeks.  Wildlife was very abundant up there and quickly learned why fireplaces and stoves are more of a necessity that air conditioners (temp drops to about 50 degree at night).  

Below are some of the pictures that I took during our stay.

Red Hook Dog Rescue - Olive

This weekend, Red Hook Dog Rescue invited me to take portraits of some of their dogs that are in need of a forever home.  They are based in Brooklyn and they focus on dogs that have special needs, ie blind, deaf, etc.

Below is Olive.  She is very sweet and very sociable.  The rescue group estimates that she is about less than 2 yrs old so she is pretty puppy-sh and just wants to be with other dogs.  She is taking basic obedience classes and she can sit and stay on command for her treat. 

Olive is a beautiful dog that needs a lot of exercise and love.  If anyone is interested in adopting her, here is her full profile
