Well, That's Just Ducky
Me: Hey, Duck. Where’s the rest of your fuzzy?
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Inside.
Me: …
Ducky: Me. Inside me.
Me: I thought so.
Ducky: Daddy?
Me: Yes, Duck?
Ducky: I miss my fuzzy.
Me: Sorry, Duck. 
Ducky: I didn’t appreciate how much I liked my fuzzy until it was gone.
Me: Yes. Such is life, I’m afraid. We don’t always appreciate the things and people we love until…
Ducky: We eat them.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: I was going to say “until they’re gone.”
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Same sentiment.
Me: I guess.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
Me: I love y…
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: What?
Me: Don’t try to eat me.
Ducky: That’s silly.
Me: Uh huh.
Ducky: I’m far too full from this fuzzy.
Me: I love you, Ducky.

Dinnertime!

Ducky: It’s dinnertime!
Me: No it’s not, Ducky.
Ducky: Yes it is!
Me: Afraid not.
Ducky: I specifically heard you say “Dinnertime!”
Me: The Lady and I are going out for a little bit. I said to her that we need to be home by dinnertime.
Ducky: There it is again! Two dinnertimes! Double foods!!!
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: I think you’re confused about how dinnertime works.
Ducky: Three-sies!
Me: But that’s pretty good counting for a dog.
Ducky: You say, “Dinnertime!” and then you get up and scoop my food into my bowl. Every time.
Me: I say it to announce that it’s dinnertime…
Ducky: Four! Better get started!
Me: Saying, “Dinnertime!” acknowledges dinnertime. It doesn’t trigger dinnertime.
Ducky: I’m going to need a bigger collar.
Me: It’s noon, Ducky. I’m sorry I said that word.
Ducky: What word?
Me: …
Ducky: I may be hungry.
Me: I love you, Ducky.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.

Black Dogs Project

This photo series started after a conversation about how black dogs have a harder time getting adopted then other dogs. I decided to start a photo series photographing black dogs on a black background in my studio. Using social media, I’ve been recruiting local dog owners who have black dogs to photograph. It’s an amazing journey that will hopefully become a book. (artist statement)

Ducky: Hey, Daddy.
Me: Yes, Ducky?
Ducky: Wanna’ play?
Me: Maybe later.
Ducky: Okie dokie.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Hey, Da…
Me: Later than that, Duck.
Ducky: Ah.
Me: …
Ducky: How much later?
Me: Maybe after the game is over. So like two hours.
Ducky: Ah! Good! Two hours.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Hey, Da…
Me: It hasn’t been two hours yet.
Ducky: No way to know. Lost my watch.
Me: You have no watch. Nor sense of time.
Ducky: That’s a myth.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: How about now? Two hours yet? The sun seems lower in the sky.
Me: We’re inside.
Ducky: Ah. That’s a lamp.
Me: … 
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Sooooooo…
Me: Fine. How about I throw your tugger a bit during the game? If you bring it back I’ll keep throwing it.
Ducky: Multitasking! Easier for dogs with thumbs!
Me: Humans.
Ducky: You have a right to be called whatever you want to be called. No skin off my nose.
Me: I love you, Ducky.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.

Ducky: Daddy?
Me: I know.
Ducky: The cat is swatting me in the face.
Me: Well, not really.
Ducky: The cat is swatting towards my face.
Me: Well…
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: The cat is trying to swat in the general direction of my face without having to get up. 
Me: There you go! That’s a more apt description.
Ducky: Too lazy to get up to swat me.
Me: Kinda looks like she’d like you to help.
Ducky: Yes. It does appear she would like me to swing my face into her paw for her.
Me: Well?
Ducky: Not going to happen.
Me: Fair enough.
Ducky: This cat is just a big hairy ball of sloth and woe.
Me: Thanks for putting up with her.
Ducky: Thanks for putting her food where I can reach it.
Me: What?
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
Me: …
Ducky: Ow my eye?
Me: I love you too, Ducky.

Me: It’s called meditating, Ducky.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: ‘kay.

Ducky: Looks like sitting with your eyes closed for a long time.
Me: There are similarities.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: It’s a little weird.
Me: …
Ducky: Freaking me out a little.
Me: Sorry. Almost done.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I’m gonna’ keep my eyes on you until you’re done.
Me: What do you think is going to happen?
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Hard to say. But it’s just making me anxious.
Me: Ah.
Ducky: Do you ever get inexplicably anxious for reasons of ambiguous origin?
Me: Fairly often. 
Ducky: Hence the sitting?
Me: Hence the meditating, yes.
Ducky: Well, good luck with that. I’ll be here when you’re done.
Me: Love you, Ducky.
Ducky: Love you, Daddy.

Ducky: Those are a lot of noodles, Daddy.
Me: Yes they are. Lots. We have fourteen people coming for dinner.
Ducky: That sounds like a lot.
Me: It is.
Ducky: But you have a lot of noodles there.
Me: Yeah. Should be enough.
Ducky: Enough?
Me: For everyone.
Ducky: …
Me: Including you. Don’t worry.
Ducky: Oh good. I was worried you forgot I like your noodles.
Me: No. I couldn’t forget. Certainly not with how close you’ve stayed during the process.
Ducky: I thought I should stay close in case you needed help.
Me: In case I needed help?
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: In case you dropped a noodle.
Me: I thought so.
Ducky: The help I could give would be limited anyway.
Me: No thumbs?
Ducky: No thumbs.
Me: I appreciate the thought. And don’t worry. As soon as the first batch is boiled, you’ll get your noodle.
Ducky: Oh g…
Me: …
Ducky: Noodle?
Me: Yes. Noodle.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Those are a lot of noodles, Daddy. Noodles. Plural.
Me: I know. But you can’t have too many. They’re not good for you. 
Ducky: …
Me: I have to keep you healthy.
Ducky: Not as concerned with the health of your fourteen guests?
Me: If you knew what I put in my sauce you’d know the answer to that question.
Ducky: There’s sauce?
Me: I love you, Ducky.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
