The Sheftells

My wife Sarah and I have known Lonni and Justin almost as long as we have been in San Diego.  They adopted their cat Oscar from Sarah.  Then, having fallen in love with our dog, they went and adopted a dog that looks just like him.  Humphrey is similar in his sweetness, but otherwise has a completely different personality than my dog.  The newest addition to the family is Stella.  Lonni wanted some photos of her while she is still a puppy.  This was the first time I met Stella and she was very shy with me at first.  Unlike cats who do pretty much whatever they want to do no matter what you tell them, dogs are more like kids.  A well behaved dog or kid can be told what to do and he or she will do it, at least for a little while.  The younger they are, the less they listen (until the kid becomes a teen, but that is a different story).  Stella just started puppy class, so she did not have a clue about what I wanted her to do.  Therefore, she was more like a cat (yes, I have been told before that I have circular logic).  We picked her up and moved her when all else failed- just like a cat.  When Oscar made a brief appearance at the end Lonni picked him up and held him.  In any case, Stella proved very photogenic, but I think Humphrey and Lonni stole the show.  They were working it for the camera!


About Andrew

I am just a guy with a camera who does not like to talk about himself very much. This blog will be a challenge to draw myself out by showing how I interact with my corner of the world through pictures. It is my hope that the stories I tell are as interesting and entertaining as the images I create are beautiful. As this is my first attempt at blogging, please be gentle...
