The Charlotte "I Have Claimed You As Mine" Series

Charlotte has one of the most expressive faces I have ever had the privilege of looking at, much less photographed. It is ALL about her mouth, her eyes and the myriad combinations of interaction between the two.  

On this day, she was fresh from the groomer and the quiet overcast day begged us to come play, so I stuck this little "Be Mine" heart on her and she was happy to be the center of attention.

If I could read her mind, here is what I think she was trying to tell me in these pictures:

CHAR:  "You told me at the beginning, 'You are my FOSTER DOG! I will not fall in love with you! I cannot have THREE DOGS!'"

CHAR:  "You told me at the beginning, 'You are my FOSTER DOG! I will not fall in love with you! I cannot have THREE DOGS!'"

CHAR:  "I told you -- (to myself, under my breath) -- 'Well, I will make sure you change your mind about THAT!'"

CHAR:  "I told you -- (to myself, under my breath) -- 'Well, I will make sure you change your mind about THAT!'"

CHAR:  "It's a good thing that I am not the type to say, 'I told you so!'" (Because I pretty much did! LOL!)    

CHAR:  "It's a good thing that I am not the type to say, 'I told you so!'" (Because I pretty much did! LOL!)

 

And finally the Moment I Have Been Waiting For...those eyes...that mouth!  OMG...no words, Char. You are Perfection and Love and Sweetness.  Thank you for coming into my life!
