A Pot of Gold Under The Rainbow

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Pot of Gold Lovers….

I was just sniffing the morning basset hound wires and ran across this delightful picture and story from Dallasnews.com!

Chester, a nine year-old basset hound, relaxes in his driveway as a double rainbow appears in the early evening sky in Arlington, Texas on Sunday, September 16, 2012. (David Woo/Staff Photographer)
“I walked outside of my home Sunday night to take my dog, Chester, for his nightly walk in our neighborhood. When I noticed a great rainbow, I told my wife to get her iPhone and take some photos. She realized the iPhone could not get the entire rainbow.

I decided it was time for a real camera with a very wide lens. I was taking photos with my 14mm lens and an airplane flew past the rainbow. The plane was so small you could barely see it. I switched to my 17-35mm lens and waited for another plane.

The rainbow was changing every minute. I knew I would need something in the foreground and then Chester walked by. After a few treats he decided to lie down with me, since he saw me lying in our driveway trying to get a better angle. Everything lined up as Chester appeared to be looking for the pot of gold.

I live in Arlington and I think the rainbow was over the Cowboys stadium. There was no gold for them today.”

    Bought the Rescue Remedy at Whole Foods today. That was fun. Love that store but a bit out of the way. The people were just as great as the food and products.
