I promise, cats and dogs only when too cool to miss.  I’ve copied a couple of images of kids and animals from previous posts that were so joyous they deserved a repeat.

  1. The more they come the better they look. I am happy that’s possible.

    Thank you and God Bless.

  2. These are some of the best photos I’ve seen in a while, and that’s saying something, I look at a number of different photos every day.

  3. Well John, you lifted that envelope edge just a little more again. THANKS.

  4. I so enjoy your website and the magic of photography that you bring to us. Thank You!

  5. so wonderful to see ALL your beautiful images, very refreshing to see such beauty!

  6. Each of those photos are so real, lively, just wonderful. Thankyou for sharing with us.

  7. Jimmie,
    I am glad you appreciate my website. I’m not an organization, I’m just one person who enjoys sharing images she finds with like-minded people. Dusky

  8. I am so glad I found you. I love everything you do, but the kids are above and beyond. In this world with so much sadness, kids are mostly happy and smiling.

  9. Your selections always leave me entranced. These had me smiling from the first to the last. Impossible to select just one favorite. I so look forward to your sharing. Sincere thanks and may God continue to bless you.

  10. Impossible to remain in a bad mood with these touching photos. I absolutely love them. Nothing is more endearing than animals and children. Innocence and love!!!!

  11. These are the best photographs of children with the animals. I think the animals instinctively feel that there is no danger from the little ones and allow them to be explored and show the protectiveness of motherly instinct. Great. Thanks for sharing.

  12. My smile was pasted on my face all through. Your pictures just simply and touchingly projected innocence and love through these kids and animals. Thank you.

  13. These are so neat. Especially enjoyed happy, happy little girl with smiling camel. A happy camel is a wonder.

  14. I love these pictures. I was there along time ago and still live amongst
    the deer,moose,wolf, coyote, cougar, lynx,bob cat, eagles, redtail hawk and peregrine falcon. Not to forget my four blue heelers,cat,
    highland cattle, andalusian horses and chickens. It is a wonderful
    world here on the ranch. For anyone that has love for the wild and
    domestic animals, you are surely blessed.

  15. Santino,
    It sounds like you live the life that reflects the kinds of pictures I like to collect. I’m glad to hear you appreciate it and the wonders you are surrounded by.

  16. A very calming few minutes spent looking at your photos was just
    the thing to prepare my busy mind for sleep. What could be more
    enjoyable than time spent looking at pics of animals with their
    humans. Palpable affection. Thank you so much.

  17. Your email is one is ALWAYS open, knowing I am going to smile or laugh outright. I love your site!
