Very nice ducks, but even better congratulations on your recently Irish Setter! I'm guessing that is your wife with your new dog and she looks very happy.:smile:

Over my years of growing up with or having my own dogs, I've only known what it can be like to live with an older blind dog. Some do amazingly well. This fellow looks to be pretty young and full of vim and vigor!:biggrin: That's really great that you were able to adopt him/her.:2thumbs:

P.S. Don't get me wrong - I have a special fondness for ducks, as well as dogs.:wink:

Thanks BBW. The dog was mistreated and not fed well too. She had glaucoma and was in pain and going blind so they operated on her and now she is totally blind. Her eyes are artificial as they thought no one would take her if her eyes sockets were sewn shut. She is five and she's been blind about five months. We used to raise setters so the picture of the dog and my wife made my day as my wife is very happy to get her.

Thanks for more background. I'm so glad that you and your wife were able to bring her home into your lives. She is a lucky dog for sure to be able to spend the second half of her life in a loving home with good people.

I'm a dog lover, as well. It's heartwarming to read your story, texascbx. Congratulations to all of you! You have a Siberian Husky, too, don't you? I'm sure the two of them will have great fun at your new ranch!

Here's is my dogs also. I love dogs, all kind. They're seven dogs in my home, Rhodesian, Siberian and the rest are what we call in Colombia "criollos" (not special breed), these where born in my home. Also have a horse "Orion" that I never ride, he's like another pet on the house.

On auto focus, I find about 20 percent or so are not focused good enough to suit me. The 14-45 is nearly always spot on, the 45-200 on the long end can get way off.
