“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt

This is Ice (Box).  He was adopted when he was a few weeks old from a humane society  (the same place Phoebe came from).  Someone was going past a house and heard a noise in the direction of the porch.  It sounded like a puppy whinning, and it was coming from a refrigerator!  Some idiot left him in there to suffocate.  He was taken to the Mercer County Humane Society in Harrodsburg, Kentucky.  At the time, a woman boarding a horse at our farm, had a Rochester based dog rescue called "Woof Wagon."  She worked with the Kentucky agency over the years, and told me about the puppy.  When I told my son-in-law Kevin the story, he immediately made arrangements to adopt him, and he was brought to Brockport. They already had a black lab adopted from Lollypop Farm...another rescue they named Jaxi. Yesterday she died of a heart attack at the Vet's office and now he cannot understand where she is.  So....I picked him up this morning and he is hanging out at the farm.  He is a very sweet boy and will be fine.  Tonight his family will come for dinner, and when he goes home with them, he will start a new life as an only child.  So... it is a dog day.
