He was moving in and nuzzling me as I came through the front door of a neighbor's house. Couldn't manage to capture his full face.
Finally, we made it into the living room, where he settled peacefully near the fireplace.
He's not allowed on the rug -- concern about shedding hairs or about muddy feet?

On a sunny Sunday afternoon, Chubbs was chasing a tennis ball that his owner had launched by hitting it with a golf club. He's a young dog, a cross between a German pointer and a golden retriever, and he's very focused on acquiring the ball -- sometimes in midair -- and bringing it back. If it lands and he has to search for it, he will freeze stock-still in pointing stance until told to get it. I enjoyed watching him very much. He's also quite friendly and affectionate -- a wonderful pet.
My neighbor snapped the photo below of me with Chubbs, who is eager to get back to the tennis ball game:
