I've been holding on to these gems for awhile - well, since Christmas, really. So here they are: pictures of my baby running. Claire loves to run. She likes to be chased more than she likes to chase [mainly because she can outrun any dog at the park and likes showing off]. And now that she's older, I find that the lab is coming out in her, and she loves running after tennis balls [she has about a 60% success rate of bringing them back because she's very picky about which ones she'll actually fetch]. I'd wanted to take some pictures of her running for awhile, and I finally had the perfect opportunity at Christmas while we were back at home in Massachusetts at Bourne Farm. Here's Claire in all her glory!
This picture depicts her happy ears!
She's running so fast in this picture
that the wind is blowing back her jowls so you can see her teeth.
