A man and his dog at the Dominion Arboretum

My friend Dave recently adopted Lilly, a Jack Russell mix (possibly a mix with chihuahua or dachshund, 7 years old), and approached me for a photo shoot out at the Dominion Arboretum near Dow’s Lake, Ottawa.  Of course I said yes, what a perfect opportunity to promote the SPCA and at the same time spend a few hours at the Arboretum, home to more than 2,000 varieties of trees and shrubs, as a backdrop for some nice fall photos of a frolicking dog.
