Merry Christmas 2014 from Ray the Service Dog
We at the Phoenix Genesis staff wish everyone a very Merry Christmas today. May you have a wonderful time with your family and friends. For those who follow us for our animal antics and training tutorials, we wish you a wonderful holiday with your furry family members. For our video gaming audience, we hope you get a next gen console if you don’t have one or, if you do, we hope you get some new games to play today from Santa Claus. It’s been a great year and we really look forward to 2015.
For the cover photograph of my Signal Dog Ray, I took him to the Los Angeles Zoo. They had a wonderful Christmas backdrop near their annual Reindeer Exhibit and I thought it was perfect for this Xmas season. I used two bandanas on his neck – red and green – as they are the dominate colors associated with Christmas. I made sure he faced the camera and that there were highlights in his eyes. Finally, I scanned the background to make sure the edges were clean with no unwanted objects or distractions. Photo taken by me on my iPhone on or about Dec. 19, 2014. Ray got some really great presents from Santa, so I’ve got to get some sleep before we do the grand unwrapping around the tree alongside our Three Mouseketeers (Merlin, Suki, and Harley Jr.) and my boyfriend Steve.
