Toy puppy leaps up to greet her friend

6/52 for the group 52 of 2012

This week's theme was: Leap

In a couple of months time, I could have hoped to get a shot of a leaping lamb. If the weather were warmer, I could have hung out on the playing fields where people exercise their dogs in the hope of an action shot. If I had willing young subjects, I could have got one of them to leap for me, or if I were not so old, I could have done a leaping self-portrait. But as none of these apply, the toys have come to my rescue again!

When you've just returned from a day at school, it's lovely to be greeted by your puppy leaping up to show her affection.

6/52 for the group T189ers weekly alphabet challenge

This week's theme was: C is for Childish

I always try to take two different photos for the two weekly groups, but it helps if they can be related, so having used the toys for the difficult "leap" theme, I realised that they would be perfect for "childish" too. :)
